TEST: NPCs that might cause a server crash

Post by Jenalya » Sun Sep 04, 2011 11:12 am

As you might know, there recently was a server crash that was caused by some bug in a script. Although we couldn't find out which script exactly caused the error.
Alastrim and I reviewed all scripts that might have caused it (and some more) and did some changes to make the scripts more safe.
More detailed informations about the crash and the changes can be found in this topic:
http://forums.themanaworld.org/viewtopi ... 13&t=14039

Now I restarted the testserver with our changes and we need some testing of the changed scripts.
These are:
Tutorial - Hasan, Tanisha
Rossy Quest - Battle caves
Andra (the girl north-west of Hurnscald)
Barbarians (those didn't cause the crash, because they aren't released yet, but they also use commands that can be critical)

Please try these NPCs and especially test to log out in different situations during the quest/fighting/NPC talk, then log in to try if the server is still up.

Any reports about the test, either if you found some bug that made the server crash (with informations what quest you were doing and what did you do to make it crash) or if you tested and everything was fine, is welcome here, so we can judge when it's safe to bring the disabled NPCs back to the main server.
Thanks for your help. :)
