Hello silEnT team.

 

I suppose that when we download the 0.8.1 package, we have got the GeoIP "up-to-date" inside.

 

But because I see sometimes players from ??? country, I wanted to download myself the GeoIP.dat on the official web-site.

 

But we need to register in their web-site to do it, or we can DL a "light" version without subscribing ( if I did well understand, and you know it is often my problem  ^^ )

 

Well, I propose you, if it was possible (with the copyright-laws etc ..). to put in directcly in the Download section site of  mygamingtalk http://mygamingtalk.com/forums/files/ , and OFC regulary updated.

 

Possible, not possible ?

 

Thanks in advance

The GeoIP data is not included in the downloads from this site because of the licensing. However, there is a direct link to the donwload in the wiki http://mygamingtalk....#g_countryFlags There is the license as well.

Ooops did-not see it, thanks gaoesa, but still a problem. I've just DL from wiki, unzipped it, and the size is much lower than the one I have already :

 

  • Unziped from Wiki : 612238 B
  • From my server :   1198612 B

Is it normal ?

I don't know where you got the original. So far I haven't had any problems with the updates. But please keep the original safe just in case.

When opening them with Ultraedit, I see that mine is a very old-one :

GEO-106FREE 20110802 Build 1 Copyright © 2011 MaxMind Inc All Rights Reserved

 

And yours from wiki :

GEO-106FREE 20140204 Build 1 Copyright © 2014 MaxMind Inc All Rights Reserved

 

So the size is not important ;) internal format has probably been optimized. 

 

Thanks gaoesa for the backup advice xD

Size keeps changing has maxmind changes it. Geoip.dat gets updated every month or two or sometimes every quarter.  I just update it on our server every 6 months or so.

OR You can run cron on your server to get new geoip.dat every month :) That would be much easier ... I try to set up my basic things as cron so I don't have to worry to update it and it always get updated.
