      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!

Cheers!

My name is DDay and I used to run a gaming community called Autumn Forge/Iron Fox about 5-6 years ago. I'm getting back into gaming a bit and came across your site today.


Is this site exclusively for Veterans? I served with the 10th Mountain Division in the early 90's. Just curious as to if this is entirely Vets only?

 

Thanks guys!

DDay

Welcome to the site!  Hey, thank you for your service!  No, it's not for Veterans only - it was founded by a Veteran, BLuDKLoT.  We do have a number of Veterans from militaries around the world here, though.  But a lot of us are merely wargame fans who like a mature gaming environment with good admins and few disruptive players.  Not that some of us are beyond a fair level of precision military silliness, mind you (insert Monty Python/Graham Chapman military sketch here).   We have fun.  Hoping we can revitalize some of our other servers, but lately the Project Reality is still the most popular game here, and it's based on a 12 year old engine now, so there's many of us hanger's on who hang out and play plenty of things together that we don't even have servers for.  Stroll around, meet the folks - have fun!

See ya! :hi:

Welcome to the Community.

Although there are many veterans involved there are an equal number of appreciative civilians too.

I look forward to seeing you out there, Soldier.
