I would like some players to help me test a new hosting company.
Game setup is tournament/fast but with newby protection.

As this is a test, please don't expect the game to last very long.
If it does work well, then I will keep it going.

The more the merrier as this is a test.

Thanks Guys :D

The speed seems fine WHEN the game is running, but currently the game keeps on returning "Unable to connect to DB"

One question...

Alf, when you setup the game did you have Persistent Connections checked or UnChecked? If you had it checked you need to uncheck it.

We are currently having a problem with our webblade2 server which your web resides. Our system administrator are currently fixing it at the moment.

This problem happened because of the Firmware Upgrade from IBM for our Intel Blade server (webblade2). Apparently, the upgrade conflicted with the custom Kernel FreeBSD that we have for the webblade2 server, thus resulting the FreeBSD Operating System in webblade2 to stop working.

We cannot downgrade to the previous state (before the Firmware upgrade), so we need to patch / upgrade the FreeBSD Kernel system to adjust with the firmware upgrade. We have contacted our FreeBSD engineers to do that. Hopefully it will be fixed within 5-6 hours. Thank you for your understanding and patience.
Unquote.
It has now been over 18hrs of down time, not good. :(

I can see how that could possibly happen and I am not going to complain because things like that have happened to us. :)

Now if this is a regular occurance and not an isolated incident then there might be a problem.

Hopefully they will give you credit for the down time.

TD, I am still waiting for an answer from them, the game, database etc is all still there. I have had to move my domain back to my other hosting as I do not want the down time.
If they can set me up with a new domain then the game will be back in the state that it was left in.
Dirty play???????
You just wait untill I have the time, then see the mountain that you will have to climb to get past me. :D

Just went in to SD my player, but it came up with error, then I bought a new ship without a ep and deflectors, and looked for mines, but found enemy-ship. Tried to attack but it came up with errors again. Then I found enemy planets. I thought that attacking any planet with level zero on all levels should do the trick, but wrong again I actually defeated the planet. Funny to see that I could defeat a planet when I have no levels above zero. Attack another planet and the it went the way I wanted:)

Alf, still some errors to handle

Server is ticking over pretty good. It would be nice to get a few more players on to test out how it would cope with a number players on at one time. :)

There are plenty of turns, easy credits to be made and of cause the wit of Mr Happy.... 8)

The number of players on does not read true so check the rankings for their last time on line. :)

Big, you are allowed back, but remember we are testing out the server, not testing out you. :evil:

Cheers

Define total domination??? :-o

score Player eff rating Turns used
1st 8,981,420 Mr Happy 75 119,985
2nd 8,798,709 Alf Online 241 36,527


I am a part-time player, yet look at my Eff and Turns Used compared to Mr Happy.

If I had a little more time, where would Mr Happy be? :evil:

But that aside we could do with some more compitetion from some players.

is to a game where I have managed to get the expanding universe working, but the online counter is not working. :(

Remember these are test games, but I will leave them running for as long as I can.

I will wait for .30 before I look at setting up a real domain link to this server, as that will be the real test.

If you would like to have me try another tournament here, then suggestions, Please. :cool:

Big verse the rest????
Big verse an invitation team???

or what ever you would like?????

Mr Happy is also still looking for some one to wipe him out, takers please????? :evil:

Cheers

I would put my money on my ego, 'course my ego is huge, some will call it notorious BIG.

If a person don't have a ego which is larger than the person self, it would be a limitation of that person. "I got no strings to hold me"...

btw. strings, new movie called "Strings" impressive small budget movie from DK....
