Rumors of a revival of an old clan? Top fraggers of June, April & May!
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: July 2024

Hello fellow Ego members,
Hello fellow NOLF'ers,

Ready for a clanwar? Revival of =|FI|=
I should have your attention now with the word "clanwar". It seems that a revival of a former clan of Nolf1 will take place. I'm talking about the =|FI|= clan.
It seems that =|FI|=Genesis is busy with a revival of the clan. =|FI|=Muerte was the clanleader in the past, but just like many clanmembers (other nolf players) it seems that he vanished into the uknown. As the last one of his clan, he wants to bring =|FI|= back to its former glory. Upon confronting him if he's really doing that she shortly answered "Yes". I also heard from other corners of nolf that there is a possibility of a clanwar. =|FI|= vs |eGo| ? We would accept the challenge and would gladly play. The last time we played against a clan was on 31st July 2009, almost 15 years ago!
=|FI|= The game is on!!


Server Update Rambos Server
Rambo, former clanleader of [Champ], informed me that his servers will stay down. As some of you have noticed there are three servers missing, The "Rambo GER Server", "Rambo US Server" and the well known "Rambo Control Server". In the control server you as a player could use commands to change settings of the game, like fraglimit or change map. A simple textmessage like "$fraglimit 15" was seen as a command changed the fraglimit. That was a well used server, because users could dynamically change the conditions based on the amount of players.
His servers will remain offline until november, he needs the computer power of his servers for other projects.


Where to find nolf players?
We're still playing nolf, just look at the statistics below, we are still active and kicking it in nolf.

I'm sorry for the delay, I got caught up in work and didnt get to update this website in a timely manner. Writing an post here happens old school in code, not like a wordpress site where I can login, so it costs a bit more time to update it. So here the frag scores of past three months, starting with June.

Top Fraggers of March '24 & NOLF3 Petition
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: April 2024

Hello fellow |eGo|-Members,
Hello fellow NOLFers,


No One Lives Forever 3
The dream of NOLF3 will continue. An ongoing wish of the entire nolf community and of the |eGo| Clan to have one day NOLF3, with the physics, game characteristics, weapons and the fun storyline of NOLF1 and NOLF2 (personally I'd prefer NOLF1 over NOLF2).
There is one studio who chasing the rights behind NOLF: NightDive Studios, they are trying to collect the IP (Intellectual Properties) from the various owners of NOLF. NOLF was made by several studios and each of them did/do own some of the rights, some of the studios were sold and merged with others, sold again and merged again - the contracts where written on paper (not digital) and got "lost" somewhere in the past 23 years since its release.

Stephen Kick is founder & a developer at NightDive Studios, he posted in march on Twitter (some people call it X, but since we cling on old things like NOLF, I refuse to call it X!) some kind of petition:

Like this post on twitter to increase the chance of NOLF3:
Read more about thos petition here
The |eGo| Clan, the last surviving Clan of NOLF, and I hope that NightDiveStudios will manage to aquire the rights and to bring out NOLF3 - I'll be the first person to buy it!
May the blue sleeping gas and blue mines return one day!


Top Frags of March
Sorry for the delay I was caught up in work, and I used the little free time to play nolf. I played a lot of nolf in march and when I look at the statistics it seems that others did the same. Now in April it looks that people have just like me also less free time. If you look closely you'll notice that I managed to get #2 by surpassing Genesis with just a few more kills than him. And the "few more kills" where accomplished with an epic fist fight with Mac & Vader
Congraz to Mac to surpass the 2000 kills border!

NOLF1 Review from a 2024 Nolfer
Written by |eGo|Icepick / Vostroyan55th - Posted: March 2024

Hello fellow |eGo|-Members,
Hello fellow NOLFers,

There are people who discover NOLF for the first time, more than 20 years after its release. One of them is a player with the name Vostroyan55th. He discovered NOLF1 in December 2023. He wrote on the discord channel of spawn a short review that got my attention, I asked him if I can publish it on the Ego site. He agreed, but only if he can work on it a bit more. It started with a few sentences but it became a full grown review. So here it is:


The Operative: No One Lives Forever 1 review by Vostroyan55th


Introduction
The Operative: No One Lives Forever is an Action-Adventure First Person Shooter with Stealth elements in it and it’s made by the American developer Monolith using their Lithtech engine. It’s the best spy game you never played or even heard of this is all due to the problematic status of the IP [Intellectual Property] that has Activision, Fox Interactive & Warner Brothers all not wanting to get involved unless a lot of money is being talked about to settle it but even then it’s a very complex matter. But that’s alright the series is technically abandonware meaning it’s all free with the community keeping the series alive even for modern hardware/software with modernization patches not just download links. Without spoiling the superb story too much because seriously you have to play through it yourself though let me give a brief synopsis of the plot to begin this review!

The storyline
You play as the amazing Cate Archer a Scottish super spy working for the international anti-terrorist organization called UNITY assigned on her first serious high risk mission to figure out what happened to their agents who either went missing or died. The new terrorist organization HARM is suspect so it’s up to Cate Archer to figure out their evil plans before it’s too late! The story would roughly be at least 16 hours or more with a ton variety as you’ll be trotting land, sea and air to different biomes even at space on foot or in a vehicle to either go loud assaults or silently sneak to make your way to the objectives with the occasional crazy stunts to end them in daring escapes. With a colorful cast of characters in a parody of the spy genre itself inspired by big names like 007, A Man Named Flint, Get Smart, Mission: Impossible and much more The Operative: No One Lives Forever is so brilliant that fellow fans would argue the sequels can’t beat the first game! From Easter Eggs to references to big plot twists to a lot of well made jokes and much more set in well-paced linear to more open levels that have different challenges to accomplish all in the spirit of the 60’s disco era.

Gameplay & features
The gameplay is similar to many games of its era but with a bit more emphasis on stealth although it’s not as intricate as the Thief trilogy or Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell series it’s consistent enough to encourage you to keep at it especially to hear the humorous dialogue a lot of the NPC’s say or to avoid gunfights altogether even hear for useful information. Another interesting little feature is that you can choose what Cate Archer says with some dialogue tree options although its just 2 options for a sassy/intimidating or respectful/understanding Cate you will get a good laugh or different outcome with what you pick at least. The game has good armory variety although though there are some overlapping types but almost all weapons can use alternative ammunition types especially to counter body armor. Gadgets are themed after lady’s fashion items to follow the super spy idea ranging from deadly explosives to utility items like a picklock. Equipment are passives that you can only select one of to provide you with a bonus to a certain element or aspect like stealth for fuzzy slippers. The AI is quite sophisticated as they will take cover, intercept noises, backup their buddies and etc. with nice class variety from assaulters to snipers and heavy weapon specialists. After you played through the story at least once you can equip the new unlockables to use them to access inaccessible areas in your next playthrough! There are also intelligence items you can collect but their placements are always random but you should be able to collect a good bunch if you do some exploring and some of them are so funny or informative even both. One of my most favorite levels is called “Trouble in the Tropics” and here you start of infiltrating the high security submarine docks indoors where you can either open fire or use suppressed weapons to make your way to the elevator. As you go upstairs the level opens up to a large outdoor environment ranging from hiking trails to ancient ruins to large bodies of water that don’t just have regular guards but also marksmen as well as grenadiers on watchtowers covering their buddies as they go out on patrol. Upon finding a secret entrance hidden inside a mountain you have to put a stop to an experimental test before you get cooked alive to make your way to the secret launch facility that has different paths leading multiple objectives that have some civilian scientists in the way who will alert the guards if you’re spotted. That’s just an example of how a mission would flow separated into different chapters each with more than one scene but that’s as much as I’m spoiling.

Multiplayer
After you completed the main story maybe you want to play some more so that’s what multiplayer is there for DM, TDM and their version of CTF (HARM vs UNITY) modes at crazy map selections ranging from community made or inspired by the story mode. And there’s a lot of interesting and fun mods around that you can easily install to use in its mod loader!

Performance, specs & outro
As the game is set in the 60’s everything and anything is made to look, sound, operate and feel like the groovy age you’re in from the art style to the music to even your armory (although the lasers and other high-tech shenanigans are for spoofs of the retro sci-fi future). Even if the game is old it still looks great like the good old days vintage style as every asset is well made with even the devs are proud of their work as Cate herself has at least 1,700 polygons alone and for the time it was an insane achievement! Of course don’t set your expectations too high but for how everything mixes together it makes a great visual feast! The sounds are alright for its era but where the game shines well are its top-notch voice acting and the most unique 60’s soundtrack that’s adaptive not just ultra-groovy to match any situation flawlessly but all made without the use of brass instruments imagine! So far running it on my desktop PC The Operative: No One Lives Forever with the modernization patches and the fan updates runs very, very well I haven’t encountered any issues but be sure to keep your screen resolution as close to the original default ones to avoid some weird cutscene bugs as well as the anti-aliasing to a minimum to avoid some engine performance issues and lastly VSYNC On to avoid any physic related problems as for all old games. If you do get the invisibility glitch online then simply rejoin server to fix it. Overall a true hidden gem that deserves your attention as you’re missing out on a vital piece of history that needs more players to help spread the news that Cate Archer is back! A proper spy game and comedy game done right that we will never see ever again that has all the retro goodness one can expect and more!


Vostroyan55th writes over his online character on discord this:
"The Vostroyan Firstborn are an Imperial Guard Regiment. Vostroya is a world in the Halo Zone beyond the Eye of Terror, which swore allegiance to Mars during the Age of Strife."

Top Fraggers of February & New Players!
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: March 2024

Hello fellow |eGo|-Members,
Hello fellow Nolfers,


New players?!
Yes new players find their way to No One Lives Forever 1!
More than 23 years after its release there are players returning back to nolf, and once in a while there are people brand new to nolf. A french youtuber who reviews old games also stopped at nolf, you can watch it here but its in french https://youtu.be/byreCv5JkEY?si=yL_H-B5eOI3vt7E1.
However the biggest increase of new people joining the discord channel of Spawnsite.net (Link to join: https://discord.gg/s2EfcXb) was after nolf player Bruno posted about it on Reddit. That was end of February and since then a lot of people joined! I hope to see them also in Nolf online!

Somewhere in January =|FI|=Genesis found his way back to nolf, and I see on Discord [JAB]Blue and some names from [BoS] also appeared there.
And for your nostalgia: the original website of [BoS] is back online https://www.angelfire.com/dc/bosclan/Home.htm Make sure to check it out, and that time of nolf they were looking for somone with a T1 connection to host a server. Thats 1 Mbit/s, every cellphone has nowadays internet thats several times faster than that! How times are changing !!


When do we play?
We play usually on sundays, because everyone lives in different timezones: 07:00pm Berlin time / 01:00pm New York time. If you're new don't forget to download the mappack from Spawnsite.
On the right you see some screenshots from different matches throughout February.


Top Fraggers of February 2024
Here it is. The list of the top fraggers of February 2024! Yes Mac managed to keep me off from the #1 place on that list. Our fellow player Vostroyan55th expects that his computer will be soon break, so if we don't see him online anymore... we'll know... but he promised to be back, just be patient! |eGo|Rinti is currently travelling around Europe, so he's also not around in Nolf.

I had a lot of work to do in January, so I couldn't play as much as I wanted to play. That's why you'd find me on the list only #6.

New Backupserver
Yeah I can't let go of the Nolfserver story. It may seem that the dedicated server I've rented is only for the Ego Nolf Server, but that is not true. The server is for work, I'm the sole owner of it and pay for it. Despite I'm using it more and more for my work, there are plenty of resources left to run NOLF on it. No worries. At peak times the CPU only reaches like 30% usage, and plenty of bandwidth capacity are also available. However the infrastructure on the server became so critical for my work, that I've rented a second server with identical specs and program configuration. So whatever happens Ego will be always able to host a nolfserver and we will be always able to run the statistics website. The main server is located in Falkenstein Germany(🇩🇪), and the backup server is in Helsinki, Finland(🇫🇮). Both of them are rented at the company Hetzner - click here to learn more about the specs.

Unfortunately we're missing couple of days of statistics, because of the failed server move. (See previous post)


Nolf Server "|eGo|Santa's Workshop"
Since Christmas is now really over, I've decided to take down the Nolf Server Santa's Workshop. I have replaced the server under its original name with some original & custom maps. However some of the snowy & icy maps will remain, because January are some cold months.

Merry Christmas & New Server!
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: December 2023

I wish everyone a Merry Christmas! Good it's done, now to clan business:

Old Server
In my previous post I said that our serverhoster DashServ.io would move the physical server we've rented from the datacenter in Eygelshoven (Netherlands) to Düsseldorf (Germany). The estitmated offline time was supposed to be 6 hours. Well, guess not. The Server was offline for 91 hours and even after it had for another 72h severe routing problems, and couldn't be reached from every corner on this earth. And those ones who could reach it were then kicked off minutes later due to "server not found". Two weeks have passed and there is still no official excuse (via email) from the server hoster. Well I'm sorry for the nolf statistics downtime & offline time of NOLF.
Our Nolf servers need to be reachable at all times with no lag or downtimes. I didn't want to deal with small hobby hosters anymore, who are just subrenting elsewhere and are prone to the network of someone else.

New Server
The new server is hosted at Hetzner. A company that builds their own datacenters, their own servers and their own connection to the outside world. The location is in Falkenstein, Germany (Google Maps). Our server is standing somewhere inside that building on that photo on the right side. It is a dedicated server, no virtualisation. The Hardware & Internet speed? Click on the Serverinfo Button to find out on what hardware our nolf-servers are running.

Despite the website & server costs a membership at the |eGo|Clan was and will be free!!

Christmas Server & Server Moving & Top Fraggers of November '23!
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: December 2023



Christmas Server "Santa's Workshop"
To put everyone into the christmas mood, Nolf Server admin |eGo|Starship looked for all nolf maps that are related with winter or Christmas. So it was a search for all maps that have snow or ice in them. Some maps were bit of a stretch - there aren't that many maps that have snow & ice, so |eGo|Starship got a bit creative.


Current mapcycle of |eGo|Santa's Workshop & |eGo|Low Health mod

  • =|FI|= White_Xmas
  • Winterberg
  • [AC] Artic Commands
  • Chillkill
  • Frosty
  • [AC] Frozen Lodge
  • Guns & Hockeypucks
  • Northernfights
  • Ego_Club
  • Abduction



Server Moving & Vacation
On 9th of December the server, the physical server, will be moved. Our serverhoster decided to move all their physical servers (including ours) from Eygelshoven (Netherlands) to Düsseldorf (Germany). That step is for our serverhoster necessary, because of the increased energy prices in the Netherlands. When they started in the Netherlands, it was cheaper there, but now the tables have turned.
The day of the move is a saturday, there is a chance that it will be for nolf-evening on sunday offline: The serverhoster estimates that the move will take 6 hours (if everything goes to plan). During that time all the nolf-servers will be offline, keep in mind that statistics website & tracking system will offline too! Moreover: I guess the offline time will be longer, because I'll be on vacation during that time, and I cannot say how fast I'd be able to set everything up. It is not known yet if our dedicated server will get a new IP adress.

New Website!
Written by |eGo|Icepick - Posted: November 2023

Hello fellow Ego members,
Hello fellow NOLF'ers,

Welcome to our updated website. I found the old website, all that grey, a bit dull. We kept that site for 8 years or so, but NOLF is still going on and we still play. So, time for an update: I looked at other clan pages (of modern games) to get some inspiration, but all I could see were quite generic websites. Nothing clan-specific, or worse, game-specific. NOLF is colourful, so let´s embrace it - I went on full NOLF mode! I looked at old clan pages (with the "WayBack Machine" you can view websites as they were 10-20 years ago). Some veteran players may notice that the colours are similar to the old nolfgirl.com website.

I made a new clan page that reflects the flair of the game. The website is also responsive and works well on different screen resolutions, though it is still a bit buggy on phones (I'm working on that). One thing I took over from modern clan pages: each player is there with a "photo" of themselves, go and have a look at it ;)

We however are still alive and we still play. Wanna play too? Download the game with the community update to v1.006, including widescreen patch, a new in-game master server, high resolutions, 64-Bit and Intel Integrated Graphic card support.

Greetings,
Icepick
