  • tmwa-char is taking a long time to start up. I know exactly what the problem is. I haven't recently started the pre-move char-server on such a big database, so I'm not sure if the new code has actually made it worse or not.
  • The new CDN for updates seems to be working, and *very* fast. Some people complain about having to redownload all the updates, but this is the last time.
  • The guild bot won't start for some reason. Still investigating why

Something is wrong with trading, it says there is no free slot ...

4 accounts had corrupted storage before the restart, that would not load. We have identified the list of lost items and are making plans to restore them.

What exactly was changed in this update?

What changes should players and GMs and admins expect?

<Frostypants> o11c: can you tell us what you changed, so we can tell people?
<o11c> Frostypants: the code changed, the update host changed
<Frostypants> code changed to what?
<Frostypants> update host changed to what?

All the stuff that I documented ages ago. Stop pretending you didn't know, it makes us look bad. I have enough faith in the player community that they won't choose one side over the other without looking at the facts.

Perhaps 6 characters were deleted, due to corruption in their inventory. This is why you do NOT just ignore it when you see a ? in your inventory, you *talk* to us.

I expect to restore the storage and characters by tomorrow.

No, a lack of information makes us look bad. These are basic questions.

We can't blame the players here. If stuff is messed up after the update, it's on the admins to fix it. End of story.

I expect to restore the storage and characters by tomorrow.

Which characters? All the ones reported by X time, or all the ones that were destroyed in this change?
What time tomorrow?
Restore them to what? As they were before the update?
What should affected players do in the mean time?

I've fixed the trade bug, as well as done something about the startup time.

We need to check our CDN-related settings; we're not getting update stats.

It appears that NPC warps are broken in some manner.
I cannot yet say what but the npc warp from 017-4 to 017-4 to warrics hideout seems to be not functional.

Candor warp is working, I am going to investigate this when I can and will report back here.

edit:
Rossy quest warp is working as well. 4144 seems to have an idea what in specific is broken
also the block in the tulimshar school is working.

ladmin passwd seems to not exist.

EDIT2:!!
warp issue has been fixed by wushin in a simple server-data commit.

Do you mean how the last line is usually incomplete? Looks like a buffering issue cause by one of my performance optimization ...

I can fix this (at a small performance cost, but less than they way it *used* to be done), but is it worth it? It will be fixed when a few more GM commands are used, or when the server exits.

tmwa-admin no longer accepts abbreviated forms of commands. The correct command is "password".

Forgot to mention a minor bug mentioned yesterday, where you can't see if a player turns right (all other directions are okay).

Still need to deal with the CDN stats and awaiting feedback about the log buffering.

Restarted again today to fix all the known player-facing bugs.

Still open are the CDN stats issue, the GM log buffering, and the admin documentation errors.

Okay, here we go. As of now I detected the following issues:
  • Looks like #flar spell has been broken :twisted:. Earlier it took for me exactly 2 shots in 100% cases to kill yellow slimes, also usually 2 shots for sea slimes. Now it rather takes 3 shots of #flar 100% of time to kill yellow slimes and 3-4 shots to kill sea slimes. So measurements indicate #flar has become seriously weaker without any warnings. Needless to say it makes gameplay for me 1.5-2 times harder in terms of hunting small stuff, where mages already sucked at this really hard compared to other classes. I guess some bonus does not apply or some monster stats changed or something else that worked before has been "fixed".
  • Looks like at least map server has crashed and unexpectedly terminated at night today, disconnecting everyone and taking noticeable time to restart. It terminated at about 3:25 server time or so (time could be incorrect).
