Re: Server issues and site downtime

Seems to be back to normal now. No idea what went wrong but the server uses a bank of SSD's as a cache which had failed on my other website a while back and that had similar symptoms. The server hardware hosts multiple virtual servers not just mine so if the hardware fails it tends to get noticed pr...

Re: Drakan:OOTF 2018 multiplayer match

OK all, me and Mechanist have been testing a server with me as the host and it worked well with a direct connection. I've let the steam group members know. Here's what I put:- OK so we have a couple of dates which are 17th of June & the 8th of July 2018. I have been experimenting with hosting a serv...

Re: Server issues and site downtime

BTW data should not be lost as the database is stored on another server and that one is OK. It's the main hosting server that has the problem so hopefully the only thing we will have is downtime. Even if the server needs a rebuild it will not take long as I guess the host will switch out the hardwar...

Server issues and site downtime

There has been a few issues with the server crashing when under heavy load such as backing up etc. Today seemingly several files were deleted and / or corrupt and permissions were set to defaults. I restored yesterday's backup and it seems OK but there are performance issues and some things such as ...

Oops... I broke the web server

OK it's my turn to break something now... I was pruning some spam accounts then backing up the server's databases and file system when it hung booting me out of the admin console and requiring a restart of the web server services. The SQL database server would not respond after restart so that insta...

Re: Drakan:OOTF 2018 multiplayer match

Alrighty, I'll set up a test server next weekend and see how it works with a direct connection. As for Discord, the invite link to my server is https://discord.gg/YbNzV8 - this will expire after 24 hours. I don't always have my headphones plugged in so I may not answer if anyone tries talking to me....

Re: Drakan:OOTF 2018 multiplayer match

I mentioned the AIO patch, I know some of them are aware of it already but I'll put something on there to make it more obvious.

As for your ISP managing the NAT that's inconvenient for playing games online. If that were here I'd be looking for another provider.

Re: Drakan:OOTF 2018 multiplayer match

Looks like discord it is then. The web based client works fine. QoD is the same as Master of the Dragon. Seem as all characters are Rynn's it is often known as QoD and also it appears as such in the dedicated server level list files. As for a dedicated server this is best. I don't have a spare machi...

Re: Drakan:OOTF 2018 multiplayer match

Ill post this on the steam group and see if we can get more interest. I've also set up a discord server Teekus_Games with a Drakan channel that could be used. It's free and preferable to Teamspeak although the windows app does not work on my PC so I'll have to use the web client. There's also the Ar...

Re: Call of community Change.org for WB and discord

This has been done before to no avail. There are not enough people who have played this game that would see the petition and sign it so we wouldn't get nowhere near the required number of signatures.

As for a Discord server I have set one up called Teekus_Games channel Drakan.

I've made some changes to the colours. Let me know if you spot any more that don't look right.

Re: Oops, I think I broke the attachment system somehow...

Test - seems to be working after I've edited one of the files. I'll hold off updating to the latest version as that breaks even more things.

Yeah that issue is with the theme. I've messed with the .css files and changed some of the colours.

Re: Oops, I think I broke the attachment system somehow...

Thanks for letting me know. I've had a dig around on the PHPBB support forums and others have reported this bug which has appeared since the last update. There's a temp fix I can do till they fix it. Seems the update after that broke something else so we will have to wait till the next release.

Re: Divinity: Dragon Commander - Larian Studios' second (and rather odd) attempt at a dragon game

That's a well written and comprehensive review. I won't spoil it for you by going into too much detail but you mentioned that you have only completed the first stage. It gets a whole lot more silly as it progresses but yet it maintains it's humour. There's even a hint of bestiality later on dependin...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

It's being able to post 'code' blocks such as C++ or other programming language examples in the correct formatting. The forum software treats it like plain text. I'd forgotten about this but still haven't being able to make it work.
