For the record, inn data was able to be recovered from logs (which I'd copied over to the test server after I took the live server down, which was fortunately before we lost all access to the server when the drive failed). We, previously, didn't log EVERY system that affected the inn - its own item logs were vague and useless for any practical use - and... yes, negligence on our part was the reason behind us not noticing an issue with the automated backups (and obviously fixing it), which is the first thing we setup after they installed a new drive.
I can see absolutely no sane reason why we would have put the community through hell intentionally, so suggesting that we wiped item data because people had items they shouldn't is beyond ridiculous - there's much less painful strategies like for instance, just removing those particular items not that we would ever do it, but it would definitely be less painful than everyone losing their gear (and keeping their inn data). It's a terrible situation that could've been avoided, and certainly not very well timed (after finally starting to recuperate from prior attacks), but even just the fact you would accuse us of doing this deliberately is beyond ridiculous.
Really, just grow up Aristona. You surely must have better things to do than continuously come up with these conspiracy theories.

So when u said u had no hack issues and shit like that. I can only assume nobody too time too attack u. Oh and another thing. Sexyreply isnt a idiot like u who gets hes files leeched out.
As a former KI player all i can say is that kI2 whas the best server i did play i did realy enjoy it and Aristona did keep us upp to date all the time regarding problems and things like that.
I did start out at the TFN network back when Twostars still whas in dipers.. realy fun server and we did work hard back then  and after Myst did steel the donation we did close and i did start playing in a twostar server.. iceteako.. it did fail like all his servers. hell even the server with tickets did fail as twostars love to open a server then close it. after that i did play around in KE,., whas kinda fun but we all know nis is a fucking twat . Aristona did open KI1.. did just test it and it did fail ofc. then KI2 came and daam i still say this is by far the best server i ever did play in i did test this server and all i can se is fail fail fail i realy hope you can live up to your words when you start NDKO.. if you ever will.. anyhow i am a ARISTONA FAN.
I agree, best times we had in a private server. I don't care about all the drama between the developpers. All I want is a nice, stable and enjoyable private server... which so far, only ki2 was able to provide... and for a small proportion ki3 as well (as long as it lasted).
and aristona, ki3 didn't last 3 months Lasted 1 month I remember it very well cause I donated A lot and was kinda mad you closed it down then, I'm sure you remember
I've never been a big fan of hard farm servers cause I know there are not enough people willing to play it (effort-wise)... but I thought this would be different, seeying all the hype. Atm I kinda want to keep playing but I have to be realistic, 230 people online, the server is 8 days old and completely unbalanced... quick count on panel: 7 humans, 39 orcs.
I'm not flaming, I'm happy people are still trying to make a good server, but I'm afraid this won't work, despite all the effort you guys put into it.

gotta give credit to twostars for his efforts but u can't put makeup on a pig, know what i mean? twostars isn't the main reason for tis server's failure lol.
In retrospect, sticking with those files was a really bad idea. But hey, that was several years ago now, though I know better now, I didn't then and don't claim to be perfect. After all, it is only through failure that success can be achieved.
The attacks turks can make to SexyKO are probably small botnets, or just flooding with their 256kbps upload speed with their home connection. Not trying to call SexyReplay as idiot (since u called me as an idiot) but they also got their files leaked once or twice, but I am not really sure how. Trillions of ways to do it, so... check Snoxd or any other turkish psko forum to download sexyko files sometime. My files never got leaked for a hack reason or something, I was social-engineered, which wasn't expected for me, otherwise I would be prepared.
The attacks psko community faces are mostly the ones coming from other server owners, due to competition. SexyKO is alive for few years already, and I doubt someone would be stupid enough to compete with them. It would be like creating your little phone-selling office in a small town, but trying to compete with Apple or Nokia. Completely pointless.
I'm not saying they never got attacked, they probably got loads of them, but they should all covered up. That server is alive ever since I started learning how to setup a server.
SexyReplay wrote his emulator (what I heard from Twostars is, he just made additions to current server files, didn't wrote it from stracth) but it's no biggie. If we throw aujard exploit out of the window, the bugs in server files may only lead to a server crash, or ingame issues (like dupe) which provides enough logs for SexyReplay to fix it instantly. Fixing other issues (which Twostars is trying to archieve) require time. In the end, if the jealous psko owners give up attacking other servers due to early competition, the server will be safe.
You shouldn't say KI never got attacked. We've even got attacked by some hackers from USA, trying to get 1000 USD from us to stop their attacks. The server was down an entire week - the company we were using almost kicked us due to endless attacks (attacks effected their lines) so yah, not really important but just to clarify.
Rodrane definitely helped me alot, but when I look at KI forum, my total comment is over 2500, rodrane only has 45, and I was pretty much the one who tried to fix what was destroyed... as we both know.
Yes, we can say it was me behind most of the things in KI.
Anyway, I won't be cruel to you - nor to this server. As said, I would double your downtime if I wanted to, but no point. I just didn't like what you've done to me. When I was trying to fix the problems myself, working all day long, having almost no sleep, you just made laugh of me, and I exactly replied in the same way. Nothing additional. Pretty fair.
I'm still few years older than you and I have never had second or third personalities like you. I'm always the same, it's only you changing constantly. You are just a guy in the background. Was, and will always be.
Ps: Lolcats + trolls > ponies + ducks. Accept the fact.

This server is dead. At least it deserve a good funeral
face it twostars, u failed so did the server.
that's make me wonder what's gonna happend with NDKO, another fail?
This server is nice, had problems but they are fixing them. Needs a higher population and good to go. BTW was up with these kids screaming server fail server fail get the Fuck out of here.
