I know you are all as excited for the new maps as I am. Things during the week are slow, as usual, due to my school business.
In preparation for the new maps, I have been doing some server updates and tweaks left and right. I'll discuss some of the most notable ones here.
The biggest change so far was updating XenForo (the software that powers this website). It has been out of date or quite a while, I upgraded form version 1.1.5 to 1.3, which is like a gap of about 10-15 updates! Some of you may have noticed some things being broken on the website here and there. I'm doing my best to fix everything (I've already fixed quite a few such issues), if you encounter any issues with the website, please do tell me in the comments or via pm!
Next up, this one is a biggie, I have FINALLY fixed the PvP statistics!! If you click that big leaderboards tab at the top of the website, you will notice that there are no longer any duplicate entries in the database and the stats are...
I am very excited to announce that I have finally worked out all of the pesky issued and bugs related to my latest update of AutoWalls that introduced support for custom maps! The only thing that is left for me to do is to to fix up two of the new maps that are being added and replacing the spawn on the old walls map s to match new new simplified one.
Once that is all done (It should be done by the end of this week if I don't end up with too much school work on my hands as the week progresses), I will release the new maps on all of the current servers and possibly add some more. This will hopefully make the large player base of the server to start playing again. I will also put a lot of effort into advertizing the server at that point to gain lots of new players.
See you then! I'm signing off now, I've been working on this all day and I'm super tired now.
You may have noticed that the server went down twice since yesterday.
The server died yesterday and OVH contacted me saying there seemed to to be a disk error but they didn't find anything. I'm currently talking with their support.
The server died again since then. I'll inform you when everything is resolved but I'll try to keep everything running as much as I can.
