      VG Servers are Down - *UPDATED* TS3 Server is back; some game servers still offline, updated estimate is a few more days until game servers are back online...   04/15/2017

      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. I've updated the server. Happy gaming.
  2. Wireshark on windows. Run a capture and attach to this thread. Make sure you try to connect to a game with the wireshark capture running in the background. Save as pcap file type.
  3. The last hop, or even the BMS server, probably blocks all in by default. That means any traceroutes will get dropped. Unfortunately I don't have access to the BMS server. The details are probably somewhere but I wouldn't want to mess about with it. Latency wouldn't prevent you connecting. Might stop you playing though. Show me a packet capture (using wireshark or tcpdump) and ill take a look. The game server won't initiate a connection to you, you initiate a connection to it. You should see packets going off to the server and hopefully packets returning. I'd imagine the server uses UDP and TCP. Do you see any TCP SYNs going to the BMS server? Do you ever receive a SYN ACK?
  4. Nice intro, welcome to VG. Hopefully see you in game at some point.
  5. Howdy Matey, How's it going?

      Great!! Charting new territory with 3D printing and VR tech along with the day job.

      Good call on the Admin confirmation criteria. Some times folks miss the point of it all.

      Thanks for keeping the faith and being the lynch pin of this great community.

      See you in game some time!

      I was working with an architects practice that used 3D printers for modelling trees for their large models. Interesting stuff. I've since left to become a full time network engineer.


      The people that make up the community make it easy to keep the faith :). Every once in a while people might need to be nudged in the right direction, but the community runs its self due to the people that are a part of it. 


      Hopefully I can join everyone on the field sooner rather than later!

  6. I don't think my RDP info works or I'd update it. Been a while since I did it but as far as I remember it has an auto update script built in now? Should just be a case of stopping the server, run the script, turn the server back on? Probably require a reboot of mumble too.
  7. I own this on Xbox one, not on the PC unfortunately...
  8. If only there was some way to run !admins and be presented with a list of admins, but head admins to have the power to hide certain people/gamer tags from appearing on the list. Then everyone would get what they wanted.. To do this we'd need just one coder crazy enough... Crazy enough to know Python and be willing to try it. Luckily I know one such man. He hasn't had a lot of time on his hands lately but I'll see what he can do.
  9. You know I love you in a non faggot way, we been together since DAY 1 of this shit bro! DAY 1! Who else still around from Day 1? Not many that I can see.

      Need to buy one from an SSL provider like namecheap.com or even go daddy. Doesn't need to be the expensive ones as we're not storing credit card info. Just a normal one so that usernames and passwords are encrypted when people log in.

      you can login with those godaddy login I sent with that notepad doc. The SSL and another thing I got bought are there, it's called site lock. I got an SEO thing too but I'm working on that. 

  10. Hi all Quick update. We're nearly there. Unfortunately several hardware and software components have failed but we've been working with our provider to get parts replaced on our server. We're just sorting our data redundancy and we can move to get our game services back online. Again, unfortunately... There is a problem with our software that manages our game servers and we are working on that too. As we are battling two independent problems at once it is taking slightly longer than we anticipated to restore normal service. We are in the home stretch now, however, and it won't be long until we're fully operational. Solar.
  11. yo solar. do u know how to make the site scale gfx correctly? seems that everything looks diffrent, depends on monitor. banners are cut off at one side :(

  12. New website is awesome :D:D

  13. You should just rent a server and host it yourself. I've always hated the restrictions of game hosts.. You're always confined to whatever panel they have created.
  14. I'm guessing this is Arma, not PR? edit: just seen its in the arma3 section, doh.
  15. After working with support over the last few weeks, the data migration is successful. We are going to need to sort stuff out though. A large number of topics show 0 posts. For example, in e107 we have a complaints section with 200 posts or so. Some of those posts belong in the PR section, ArmA section and so on. In the new forum it has 0 posts. However the sub sections are now their own section and contain the posts. We haven't lost any data, its just been 're-arranged' due to the way the new forum works. Now that we have the data, we just need to organise it in the way we like it. Make sure we correct any missing bits/bits that couldn't be converted and get a theme. Its only the forum software that is installed at the moment and since its just a raw transfer of the data it does look a bit ugly at the moment. We need to tidy up the forums, delete loads of unused forums, perhaps buy 1 or 2 of the modules for the website and start to turn it into VG. I'll post a link in the admin section. (sorry everyone else, its not that I don't trust you its just that this thread is publicly visible to the internet and anyone could get the link and do a bit of damage to the new site. Once its a bit more locked down I'll make it available to everyone).
