Game Status?

Post by Jadren » Sat Jun 24, 2017 2:00 am

Is anyone else unable to get back into the game after the update announced earlier?

My client says it connects, but then it just hangs, no login screen or anything.

Same here, it all began with this:
OOC: The shadows whisper 'It was a dark and stormy night. Suddenly, a shot rang out! A door slammed. The maid screamed'

OOC: The shadows whisper 'Game code update in about 30s, attempting to find the cause of that instability'

You are momentarily stunned as a strong magical presence plunges the world into
Shadow. You sense ...something at work around you, reconstructing life.
Please wait a moment.
And then it worked as you did. I also asked to another guy on the Discord to try to connect to Fk and he kindly told me he had had the same results. This was his screenshot.

Game back yes please soon, going. Already suffering withdraw.

PS. I'm sure it's related to the instability issue they're trying to fix, and it'll probably be up as soon as they can get it back up.

It seemed that it was a very long reset, since I found the corpses I left the evening before when I logged.

Even this morning, trying to login, I had the same experience, as if the game was having an unusually long reset.

Honestly these frequent resets are making the game very difficult to play. I've already lost dozens of platinum due to rooms getting emptied or getting rolled back. I know this stuff is necessary but I wish it could just be done on a schedule or something instead of at random times.

I lost about 20 chunks of platinum ore, unfortunately.

That being said, I don't believe these resets are intentional, they've been trying to figure out this problem and what is causing it.

The temporary solution is not to leave anything lying on the ground if you can help it.

Besides, if it's not a reset it's possible that it's a crash and the items are lost anyway. As Lirith suggested, that's the best short term solution. If you have autoloot off because you just want coin, there is an option in CONFIG that you can take only coins.

That sucks. FK's admins will generally let the mud know when there are scheduled updates either through the forum or OOC echoes in the client. These instances of lacking connection can be more attributed to load on the server or diagnostic attempts by the admins or the server provider. They're a pain, no doubt.

That reallllly sucks. I hit a vein earlier and was a nervous wreck there for a few minutes just spamming out the mine command.

I'm just extremely grateful that we have FK at all. I can't imagine how much work it took to get the game back up, and how much it's taking still to fix the relatively more minor-ish issues. It'll be a while before everything's back to normal--we were told as much when the game was put back online--but at least it is being given so much effort.

Leaving things on the ground was never really a good idea, anyway, even before the troubles of this year. I always avoided doing it, in any case, in the event the game crashed, and always encouraged others to do likewise. So, little's changed in that department.

Unfortunately, at the moment characters made when the game first came back up earlier this year, (when the older characters and accounts were not yet online,) are not available for merging. However, if you want to recreate one of those characters, their names should be available. If they are not, lets us know and we will make it available to you.
