      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. When not roaming the local woods, I spent my childhood between a respectable amount of Lego, scale models and an Atari ST1040. I got a strong connection with 8-bit music and I like applying tricks from the old days to new music. How could something like this not leave an ever lasting impression on you? If people tell me I got an overly aggressive retro OST vibe going on, I'm not at all surprised. If anything, I'm glad I'm not the only one waiting for that one kick ass game deserving such a soundtrack (Aquanox 3? Descent 4? The next best mech game?) "Not my cup of tea" ... no worries. It does a good job at pleasing me and pleasing anybody else is 'just' a welcome bonus. Thx for your endurance though 1st: FINALLY a new headset! Got mine replaced with no hassle, even got 1.50 back in return ^^ 2nd: It's actually a reference to "Rocko's modern life". In episode S3E10 "Wacky Deli" Heffer says "Telephones are funny" and somewhere else they visit an animation studio. There, dozens of people draw one single telephone from every angle. I don't know what it is, but telephones really seem to be funny in the mind of somebody. The main synth reminded me of a telephone, so I added a real telephone sample and gave it it's new name. 3rd: that's what I mean by "Could tell you more about the songs, but (...)" 4th: if this headset is only remotely good, that song must have been .... an experience.
  2. "And now for something completely different" I've hinted at it already, but I'm doing a musician type thingy. Currently I'm going through the process of sorting my project folder and uploading anything remotely valuable to my Dropbox account. It's rough in every way and very much WIP. Coming up with ideas is easy, polishing things not so. I also suck big time at mastering, so if you got an EQ handy you might need to use it. Some tracks are best listened to on headphones. You have been warned! Schaaper Mike WIP @ Dropbox Could tell you more about the songs, but I don't think anybody really cares
  3. I'm not a big fan of Win 10 at the moment and you're running it in a virtual machine ... if I'm getting this last part right. That sounds a bit fishy and BMS is already very temperamental. Not sure how many Apple experts we have around here, you might have to check somewhere else for help with compatibly. Luckily BMS still only uses DX9. In the mean time, if you have a dual boot system or can arrange that, that might be a way around it for now. Waiting patiently for the screenshot, maybe it's revealing.
  4. Bollocks! Sry, now I know what you're talking about. I was referring to the BMS setup. I was just assuming there was no tinkering AFTER the installation, because I know not to do that because of problems like this ;)) Alright, we're getting 'mildly off topic' here and that's a lot of text for such a simple problem TL:DR Here are a few questions: 1. When did this start happening to you? 2. Have you just recently changed anything such as game updates, OS updates, etc. ? 3. Are you running the most recent version of BMS (currently 4.33.3)? 4. Does this problem only happen online on our server, or also when you fly offline on your PC? 5. Did you install any mods? 6. Tell us anything else you could think off 7. Remember the scrrenshot
  5. Let's not throw the baby out with the bathwater and talk about reinstalling just yet. The BMS installer always does an integrity check on the available packages, that's why it's taking so long to load. The other questions are very valid though.
  6. Could you grab a screenshot of your problem? PNG would be preferred as it doesn't cause any compression artifacts. Also what exactly is the setup? External displays, running fullscreen or window, SLI ... more info = more to work with.
  7. Dude, didn't want to cut you off! Thought it was a 20 minute fix on your end, but you were just gone instantly. Feeling bad a bit :-|

    Spent around 30 before I gave up on Yame, as it kept crashing at multiple points. Already got a response on BMSF, will check on that later today. If it doesn't work, well, there isn't a lot of room on my desk anyways.

  8. It hurts my feelings to go off-topic, but what I just witnessed hurts even more. http://imgur.com/8EOsh15 Yes, this is a second campaign running for about 45 minutes. We exchanged a few more lines where he insisted on having lost his internet connection several days ago before he eventually disconnected silently. Connecting to a server takes 5 clicks: comms/online, select server, connect, OK and IVC tabs you back to the desktop in between. Why would you do all that without internet access and how can you get through all these steps successfully and still think you're offline? When the server acts strange again, just remember Adams and all the people who don't get it despite the rules and guides available. BMS has enough problems when handled properly.
  9. You'll get minor turbulence behind a tanker at best. No jet wash, no heli downwash...
  10. AO - Russian Knights random Chaos

    We're also going a bit wild. Need a less 'cluttered' server so DCS and OBS are more smooth. Lot's of fun to be had. Aerobatics Online server more pictures: http://imgur.com/a/SwSD9
  11. Did it contain a holy handgrenade?
  12. You're being busy! Let's see if we can catch a ride together these days. *smily with pilot helmet here*
  13. Well, seems like some anti virus software found IVC to be suspicious https://www.dropbox.com/s/lpovzzrut8nm9ob/IVC.7z?dl=0 Just replace your IVC folder with this one.
  14. YEAH! That's a classic!
  15. It's just a flesh wound
