josh stop licking twostars's balls/pussy..
i dont even know if twostars is a male or female xd
he is male....
Their system breaks and stops accepting new connections when it's (briefly) flooded with new connections. What seems to be happening, however, is this code seems to be being completely broken out of, and short of replicating it myself, it's trial and error working out what exactly's doing it. This is why I asked the one person I know to have fixed it for any advice; osmanx.
Unfortunately, it's been a while and he no longer has the fix on-hand, but because he has people experiencing that issue too lately, he said he'd do up a new fix "tomorrow", so... despite not being able to give me much advice, I figured there was probably no point in me looking into it any further, and just focused on the new issues (and decreasing the chances of floods being more effective).
That said, we decided to put the server up (after I finished working on the above) and (sadly) just hope nobody abused that particular exploit on us until I was able to apply the fix, but that was obviously a little too hopeful as the person who's doing it is very persistent.
I'll have another look at the issue, and have left a message to osmanx just in case.
One way or another, the issue is being resolved very soon - that particular issue is the only one that is still plaguing us. Everything else we've been able to deal with as they happen - we haven't actually experienced anything new since the DDoS attack we experienced earlier, it just keeps coming back to this one issue.
If I don't manage to solve it before osmanx does (and he will, because he's done it before, and hence knows how exactly it's causing it to break :P), there's always him. So there's a server to look forward to one way or another, I just hope for my own sake that I solve it first. :P
On another note, woke up today to find my PC had restarted (no idea if osmanx IM'd me) after a power surge, and... my video card seems to be dead (agh).
Definitely a fun week.
Despite what people may think however, we have absolutely no plans to give up as other servers have done in the past.
What do you mean by "very soon" , your words bamboozle me.
It seems that your time concept is very wrong and is relative to the time on some planet far far away.
LOL i thought ur very soon meant like 4 hrs xD
Oh , wow... good luck losing the rest of the community.
alright. monopoly/aion for the next 48 hrs boyz lets go.
Out of all honesty you just killed the population. Even though it might be a few days that ALOT of the players have wasted no-lifing both in game and waiting for it, me being one of them... I strongly suggest restarting the whole thing... and that is wiping the server and making another official day WITH 100% CERTAINTY that this bug that you say will be the last one that is actually preventing us from playing, and with it the fix that you are suppose to get soon it should work fine.
