Hello Everyone.

Everytime the server and client are updated I will post here. The client will update automatically through the patcher.

The databased will be wiped if needed when we restart the server. That's likely to happen every restart over the next few days as we're trying to track down some errors with recent additions.

Xsyon
04-01-2010, 06:57 PM
A new server and client are up. Some of you already know. I'm waiting on some changes from one of the other programmer. When that's done we'll reset again.

Ok... still having server issues. I'm going to reset the server again. If we still have problems I will wait for the new update before I start it up again.

Xsyon
04-01-2010, 07:44 PM
Restarted again. We're using the server logs to try to figure out what's going on.

Thanks.

Xsyon

Ok, I set up a local server right now so I can fully debug what's going on. You can connect through the launcher. The connection will probably be slow, but at least I can see better exactly what is going on.

I'm going to leave the server running and check in every so often and restart if needed. I also need a bit of sleep!

Thanks!

Xsyon
04-02-2010, 11:27 AM
The server is up now and will be up and down all day while I figure out what's going on. Making progress so far. Thanks!

My character is gone again though.

Xsyon
04-03-2010, 08:12 AM
Yes, characters will be wiped often these next few days as we resolve some issues.

The server should be up most of today. If it goes down it's because I am pausing it for some debugging.

Xsyon
04-03-2010, 09:45 AM
The server will be down for a while as I'm making some changes.

I'll post here when it's back up.

Are these ups and downs "normal?"

Xsyon
04-08-2010, 12:58 AM
We're having some server issues. The remaining issue is due to timeouts and I've been taking the server down when I see problems happening in the server logs so we can further investigate.

I think and hope we've tracked down the final server problem. We're working on a fix tonight.

Server down, probably until the next patch. No real reason to test without the new update. We'll be working straight until the new patch is ready. Should be late afternoon at the latest. (PST).

Xsyon

Down and back up.

For those going into the game, please message or email me with exactly at what point you are getting logged out.

Are you crashing out doing something specific in the world?

Are you in the world and you time out?

Are you not able to enter? If so, at what point do you get stuck? (What's the last message while loading?)

Are you exiting / logging out from the character screen?

Are you logging out using the Exit button from the world?

Are you logging out by closing the window with the x?

Thanks

Is the server down right now? I keep trying to login. I enter my password and hit login and the login/password and butons disappear for a few seconds, but then they come right back without any kind of message to tell me whats going on.

Xsyon
04-11-2010, 08:27 AM
The Server is back up now.

We need to resolve a problem with players trying to log in with last week's client causing the server to lock out players.

mjgreenjr
04-11-2010, 08:45 AM
So... you're saying that the server is up, however we won't be able to login? I'm now seeing my character select screen flash up for a second before it goes back to the login screen.

Xsyon
04-11-2010, 09:22 AM
Yes. Server is reset now.

Unfortunately, as long as players are trying to log in with the old client, the server will be up and down until we can get out the next installer / server / client full patch.

treyu
04-11-2010, 12:08 PM
I still can't log in. I got in pre-order yesterday but I haven't been able to see the game yet haha. When I put my login info and press the Login button, nothing happens, but the mouse doesn't move and the music plays normally, so I have to force the exit of the game to go back to windows. Is this because the server is down?

Wrekkoning
04-11-2010, 12:09 PM
yes. That indicates that the server is down.

Bumbin
04-11-2010, 12:09 PM
May be the reason. Same thing is happening to me right now.

treyu
04-11-2010, 12:11 PM
OK, please post here when server is up again!

Xsyon
04-11-2010, 12:38 PM
It's up now. Unfortunately since players can attempt connections and some can get in without the proper files things aren't going to be very stable until we patch out a new launcher and client.

We're working on it!

dimex
04-11-2010, 03:28 PM
I think you need to make the version number visibel on the login screen, could help out some of those problems.

edaw22
04-11-2010, 04:10 PM
That would help, but simply locking out players until they patch up to the current version would be better.

Currently Im getting stuck on "loading Entities" and not sure why, maybe my files are out of date also, and thats whats causing it. Ohh well gotta go to work now anyway :( maybe there'll be news when I get back.

Much thanks to Gabriel! I really appreciate it.

Several people are getting stuck on Loading Entities. Resetting the world would clear this but I'm going to leave this as is for now so that we can test this better tonight and tomorrow.

We're making a lot of changes right now. (Thank you Edaw for the bug collecting!) The next patch should include a new launcher in addition to a client with a lot of fixes.

Until then I'll let the server run for those that want to mess around in game.

Maybe the server is down right now? Running Vistax64, when I hit enter after entering my pass, the game doesn't respond. I have to force close the game.

This problems happens to be periodically, usually if the server is having problems, but server site says its up.

Update: The servers will be down tonight until I can deal with the installer / launcher programmer.

He needs to correct some issues with the new installation so that players will not have to patch a full install with this build.

When the new build is ready I will send out emails to all active players and post again here.

I expect the server to be up and down today, but I'll be monitoring it to try to keep it up as much as possible.

The updates we're doing today are primarily for gathering more information and location problems.

I just did a quick update to the server and it's back up.

Now that I want you guys to crash the server, the server has been up without problems for about 16 hours. :laugh:

We did patch out some minor fixes before this run, but I think there's still a few things we need to fix. It's looking much better though!

Xsyon
05-01-2010, 09:56 AM
Just a quick note:

We're currently still running a test build of the server and monitoring the server logs. If you get locked out it might take a minute to get back in. We will be resetting the server as we're trying to track down exactly what's still causing problems.

If we bring it up for some tests I will announce it, but the test server will not include our upcoming changes.

Xsyon
05-11-2010, 08:29 PM
The server is up and we're basically keeping it up around the clock. If it's down it's for 5-10 minutes maximum while we are either patching or checking error logs.

If the server is down for more than 10 minutes I will post about it.

Xsyon
05-13-2010, 02:35 PM
Just as a heads up, the server will be down for a few hours today while I finish setting things up on the test server. It's currently up but I plan to take it down in about an hour.

Both servers should be up tonight.

Xsyon
05-13-2010, 07:18 PM
Both servers are up and running.

We're running some tests on the test server internally right now. An update so that all players can connect to the test server will be up soon.

05-14-2010, 01:12 PM
The servers will be down for 15 minutes for an update.

Ok, 7 minute update. The servers are back up.

I will be monitoring the server for the time being. I may not notice instantly if it goes down. If it does please join IRC (click the chat button on the home page) and let me know there. Posting on the forums won't be any good, I won't be looking :)

Virtus
05-14-2010, 08:35 PM
The test server will be down until further notice while Jooky works on it.

Not sure when the server went down but it is now back up...

I will be monitoring it, but if it goes down just pop into IRC (the chat button on main page) and make sure I know.

I don't think Jooky is awake and I like living.

The servers will be down for about 2 hours as I am preparing an update.

The server is back up after the windows update (for those of you who were on).

I'm taking the server down for about an hour so I can check the logs.

There is a problem with the server's message queue. The programmer working on this is not available right now, so I'm going to check this out.

The server is back up. Let's give this a shot.

I had to work in a part of the code I normally don't deal with, but it's 5 AM in Siberia, so I get to do everything around here today. *grumble *grumble

The server is up after another quick update. I think that took me about 30 seconds. :)

I restarted the server to check something with the database saving and it looks like things might have gotten messed up.

Please let me know if your characters are messed up. If so, I might have to wipe the database for now.

Yup, I had to reset everything. I'm going to monitor this closely today to see what's going on. I think there are some database settings I need to adjust on the new server.
