Server is now back up.
Update again: Server is operational, but not fully hooked up. It now takes 15 seconds to get the 1004 error again. Hopefully this will be fixed within the hour.
Ancient is currently online now, so hopefully the issue will be resolved.
Austrailian time is anywhere from 8 to 10 UTC, which puts AncientMan at 5:30 AM to 7:30 AM (I don't know what time zone he lives in). He said he was hoping on getting it all sorted out in the morning, which for him is approaching quickly. So, North and South Americans like me, hopefully this will get sorted out before the end of the day. For most Europeans, it will probably be fixed overnight.
Any new update about PR server ?
@Semler: I guess I should try out different ways to see VG site's chat and see how it works, because I have only been logged on with prolonged cookies, and so far the chat's time stamp has not been incorrect from my end.
@Semler: Wait, shoot. Disregard what I said. I am derp right now... ^^:
@Semler: Ah, its PR site's. My bad.
@SerEvergreen VG's chat time stamps work improperly and l3RY4N's explanation is one example. Been seeing it for years, even checking in you'll see a post at some time, come back later it may have been adjusted for any number of reasons. Wonky as hell.
So thats how it is. Looks like it has a bit of difficulty to find out the local time on mobile. (chat states its 02:00am 7th Feb. while mobile states 18:40 6th Feb.) But on PC it works fine.
@Semler: Are we talking about VG's chat? Because I thought the chat's time stamps are offset'd based on the UTC zone declared in the user's profile, and from what I see so far, it works properly.
@l3RY4N - the VG Server Time is Zulu +1 (one hour after UTC time, 2 hours after UTC in summer) Game/TS3 server is in Germany, Website server is in USA (Arizona, I believe). We don't have a clock posted here on the site. Also, chat time stamps are unreliable and often tailor themselves to the local browser (poorly). Forum post times are correct and accurate.
Hopefully PR day tomorrow:O
Roger. Restarted to last auto-save file.
BMS server down... Thanks
From the latest post it seems that it won't be fixed today, but should be up by tomorrow morning.
Does the chat use the server time? And do we have a clock on the VG-website wich shows the server-time?
Should be sorted in a few hours he said. What does that mean? Two hours? 24 hours? 48 hours? Another 48 hours? I am suffering from withdrawal symptoms and flying (crashing) helicopters on my local server isn't the methadone that's helping.
So it was purposely taken down after all. Good to see this whole debacle being dealt with and coming to an end.
Pretty recent update from AncientMan. "Not quite up just yet guys, still running tests and doing various things. Should be all sorted in a few hours though."
It is down again at the moment. However, I think it was not attacked, but they shut it off for some purpose, because the PR client immediately 1004 instead of waiting for 20 seconds before timing out to throw that error like before.
yee its up :D the tournouament tho got postponed
PR.masterserver is working again
checking in now working
Latest PR update is on the official forums, but here's the jist:As of a couple hours ago, the devs held a meeting to decide what to do. Currently, AncientMan is waiting on 3rd-party verification of his new server account, and once that's done PR should be back to normal. He's unsure of how long this verification will take, because as I said, it's 3rd-party. But just stay hopeful that this will be early this weekend.
