UPDATE -- the server restart is now done. The games were reset as expected, but the good news is we won't have to deal with this particular problem again. Thank you for your understanding.

Original post:



So last night's server restart ended up nuking all open games (see https://atwar-game.com/news/news.php?news_id=313).

The bad news is, it's going to happen one more time.

I figured out why it happened, and I have a fix for it. But in order to put the fix in place, I have to restart the server again, and as soon as I do that all the open games will get nuked again. It's a catch-22 that can't be avoided.

It's already a ticking time-bomb... the very next time the server restarts, or crashes for any reason, all the existing games will be gone. There's nothing I can do about it, all the games open now are already bugged, it just hasn't blown up yet.

So the question is do we wait as long as possible and postpone the inevitable, or fix it now and get it over with?

I've decided to fix it now. So late tonight sometime when most people are offline, I'll do the restart and put the fix in place. I'm sorry to say all the open games will be wiped out again, BUT after that we won't have a problem again with future restarts.

Sorry,
Dave

So Mr. Smart.....
Would you believe that we will never have the server crash and lose any games again??
I find that hard to believe....
Would you believe that we will restart and only lose the Casual games??
I find that difficult to believe....
Would you believe we will lose only the Quick games?
No Mr. Smart.
Would you believe the server is surrounded by a bunch of Boy Scouts with seeing eye dogs that will make sure this will never happen again?

Do it now I say. We haven't even had turns happen in most games yet. Kill 'em all if it is better in the long run.

It sucks but its best to get it over and done with now i believe, players have to ask themselves "would you rather play your games not knowing if it will be up tomorrow or the day after... or start a new game knowing that it will always be up until youve finished it"

Well the reset is all done. The problem is fixed. The games got reset as expected, but at least we won't have to do with this particular problem again.

Really stinks! But I'm glad you have explained what happened and tried to make up for it. Appreciate what you provide and I'm hopeful for years more games in casual!

Well better explode the bomb when the damage is small. Also helped to got rid of the bugged games that you had to reset the servers to do it.

Yo, if we start a casual game during Double SP week, will the SP still be doubled at the end of the game even if it ends after double SP week?
