Can we get a test server?
« on: July 20, 2016, 12:20:26 PM »
Tom, I've no problems admitting that I know very little about how to code, and I am teaching myself by working on M&F means that I'm picking up how M&F works, but it also means that I'm shot in the foot by not having a server I can test things on first. Would it be possible to either get a functional test server to field updates on or instructions on how to set one up myself?

The main reason I don't have a test server myself is that you'd have to either replicate the live database, or put a lot of effort into creating a test data set.

The game used to have a test server though. It's even still linked in the manuals. Is it possible to restore one from those files?

Not really. The test server was a failed attempt, mostly, and the data set has not been updated in ages.
