      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!

  1. Thanks everyone.
  2. Hey everyone. Haven't been here for a while so I am coming back to another part of the Veteran Community. I am big into iRacing and run the Setup Co-Op where we make setups for OPEN racing. I also have Falcon 4 BMS installed and DCS with most aircraft. Also Battlefield 4. I haven't flown my flight sims nor BF4'd for quite some time but when I get the itch, they are installed and ready to go. Anyways, howdy howdy.
  3. WOW! Amazing work and attention to detail. Unfreekin'believable.
  4. Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I look forward to playing hard, playing fair, and playing to win with you all.
  5. SemlerPDX =VG= LAN_WROTE ... Welcome to the website, bro! !fans DCS, eh? Have you seen this sick vid by Chaz? My favorite....makes me want to get the game (and the Thrustmaster HOTAS!): This video ROCKS THE CASBAH! It shows the reasons I play DCS A-10.
  6. I was a long time Falcon lover but it grew long in the tooth for me. I love the HOG in DCS and I am patiently waiting for Combat Helo. Besides not having a Dynamic Campaign, DCS is very enthralling (yeah I used the word enthralling :) ). And I love the HOG. Thanks for the welcomes. Griff has had nothing but good things to say about the people here. I look forward to playing sims/games with you all.
  7. Hello everyone. Diasbled Vet (Back and PTSD) and former Cop and Correctional Officer. I play Battlefield 3, Tiger Woods 2012, and DCS A10 at the time. Griff turned me on to this site and it is a pleasure to have served and a pleasure to be here. I hope I can help people in the sims and games I play.
