      VG Servers are Back Up! *UPDATED AGAIN* TS3 Server is back; PR and Mumble are online, Arma 3 Servers are online but still need VG specific missions and configurations, should be done before end of week...   04/15/2017

      UPDATE Sunday April 23rd:
      Most everything is back online now.  The PR Server is running, and Mumble is working.  We have not yet made PR Updates available in TCAdmin, but several more people have access to update the PR Server (including me) and there should be little to no server downtime from future PR Updates.

      I've installed a second PR Server and still need to expand the VG PR License for it - it can be used for whatever, but I called it "PR EVENT SERVER" to start.  I figured we might also want a development server for things like FastJack's PR COOP Insurgency Mission testing, and we will take care of that this coming week as well, if able.

      The Arma 3 Servers have been reinstalled, and they are running basic versions of their former missions.  They still need to be configured, but they will remain online until this happens during the week (when PITN gets time).  I've set up A3 Servers with a Steam Update button in TCAdmin, any Arma Admin can now update to the latest Arma version much faster and easier, and without needing to wait for a Head Admin.    -Sem

      Sunday April 16th 2017:
      I've just received an email from the Server Host in Germany.  They host the server that runs our TS3 and various game servers here including Project Reality, and Arma 2 & 3.  Apparently, there has been a fault with our server host, possibly a hardware failure or such, but all servers in one part of their data center were affected including ours. We do not have further details at this time, but unfortunately this means VG Servers will be down until we can regain access to our server.  We were not given a time frame estimate or specific details of what damage was incurred, and we do not know if we have lost any data that was on the server.  We've been with this host for many, many years, and we've had nothing but great connections and fast servers.  Clearly this is a rare occurrence and we need to be patient as we weather this storm. I feel particularly bad for our loyal Project Reality players who were very patient waiting for our server to get it's most recent update, and I wish I could do something immediately to fix this.  It's a sad truth that it is out of our hands for the time being as we await contact from our host, and get a detailed damage report and estimate of how long until we are online again.  Of course, I've contacted the other head administrators at VG and apprised them of the situation.  We will update you all as we get information. Thank you all for your patience and understanding!

Arma 2 Insurgency Server Offline for 'Insurgency Standalone' Server Public Testing

4 posts in this topic

Thanks to much effort from Brakegamer, we are currently testing the standalone game called "Insurgency", found on steam for around $10.  The server is currently set to COOP mode with the standard maximum of 8 human players vs. 24 bots -- we are still working with different configuration options and settings, but for now the server is up and open to the Public.

During this test, which may last until next weekend, we have shut down the Arma 2 Insurgency COOP server to use it's CPU cores for the test.  Once we have a baseline for the server's CPU usage, we will find a place on the server for it to persist and we will turn the A2 Insurgency server back on.  I still have some challenges to get the server accessible to admins through TCAdmin, I'm using a batch file to launch it at present, so the server may have periods of downtime as I continue to configure it - but I will be in the TS3 Insurgency Standalone channel when this is happening, and will inform all players there before I begin, and I don't mind waiting until the end of a game to do so.

 

Standard VG Game Server rules apply, as applicable - we don't expect much traffic on this test server, but don't push the boundaries of acceptable gameplay as we are testing, you won't last long here if you do.

Okay, I've been eyeballing the CPU usage of the INS Standalone server for over a week now and I believe I've found a way for it to keep running at the same time as the Arma 2 Insurgency server.  I've changed a few things around for the A3 Lib, the A2 Ins, and the Ins standalone and hopefully they will play nicely together.  Please report if there are any issues and I'll re-examine the situation.

 

@ BLuDKLoT -- go ahead and claim the Insurgency server for the VG Clan here: http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/5.9.23.136:27015/  

also, you could add that Game Tracker Banner to the VG Game Servers page if you want.  I'm pretty sure  we'll be able to keep it up and running along side the other game servers.

 

@ Brakegamer -- please make up a Rules List for the server based on the other VG Rules list as it applies to that game, I don't play it so I don't know.  We'll review it and then we will post it as an official Rules page for this server.
