gls_workaround.txt file keeps erasing

Every time I restart FL the contents of the gls_workaround.txt file are erased leaving a blank text file. I have to manually copy the info into the file each time or the available servers won't show up in the server list.

Any ideas as to why that happens?

What patch are you using? Just use the DLL and add an entry into dacom.ini in the EXE folder

Code:

[Libraries]
;;;dosfile.dll
ReadFile.dll ;optimized read-only version of dosfile.dll
x86math.dll
EngBase.dll
system.dll
RP8.dll
SoundStreamer.dll
SoundManager.dll
MP3codec.dll
Deformable2.dll
Thorn.dll
Shading.dll
RendComp.dll
alchemy.dll
ximage.dll
flmaterials.dll
gls_workaround.dll <---- here

Getting the same problem, none of the gls_workaround servers are listed in LAN mode. gls_workaround.txt & gls_workaround_temp.txt are blank. ListServerHostname=gun.fllistserver.com
ServerListURL=http://www.freelancerserver.de/serverips.txt are pointing correctly and accessible. gls_workaround.dll is correctly listed in dacom.ini

Was working, stopped working about (maybe more than) 6 weeks ago, dont know for sure - wasnt paying attention as I dont use it.

It would seem the server is returning 403 Forbidden, but I don't know why; curl from the command line works fine. Might have to let W0dk4 sort that out; in the meantime, make gls_workaround.txt read-only to prevent the empty temp file overwriting it.

Looks like the server doesn't like a missing user-agent. Here's a libcurl.dll which supplies one (agent/1).

Adoxa,

Any issues with me including that in an all in-one patch?

Just to clearify the confusion:

The FLListServer (DNS entry in fl.ini) works as the original one:
It will list all registered servers (which also use the modified DNS entry) in the internet view.

The GLS workaround fills the mentioned text file with servers listed on the FLListServer + some which have been added manually... or at least should fill it.

These two things work independently from each other.

Bolte,

No, but it would probably be better for w0dk4 to add the user-agent to gls_workaround.dll.

Really sorry guys, I fixed this on the server-side. Should now work again and no change to existing dlls is required.

And yeah, the gls workaround also patches FL to use Crazy's GLS as a backup.

Thanks adoxa for finding out what was the reason!!
