We are happy to announce we're now running the latest version of vB 5 Connect, there are tons of feature we want to enable, so feel free to suggest them and their usage how you imagine it.
You can see the available features here:
Forum events are now being planned as well ;-)
New hosts up and running, a lot snappier and hopefully with no more connection drops, enjoy!
All you have to do is extract this 2 KB patch in the root folder of your PandoraMU client:
For those who think nothing happens, we actually do most of our work in the background without posting every action (yes we know you like changelogs, we do too)
So, after a long (10 pages) ticket, that has been open for the past 2 weeks with our hosting provider, we received the replacement:
A better machine, with newer hardware (e.g. Skylake, DDR4, Samsung 850 Pro) and completely different network cabinet.
Also, our web is temporarily hosted on the main server machine in a VM, since our old host contract expired, and now we are moving them (website and forum) to a new, separate machine:
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, 4 GB RAM, SSD drives
Hopefully this will resolve all connectivity issues, so that we can provide you with the smoothest service possible, wether you're playing the game, hammering markets or posting on our forums.
We will complete the migration around Monday or Tuesday next week, we'll try to make it as a normal maintenance, but just in case, a few hours of downtime should be expected.
We cannot delay it any further as we need the remaining time to finish S12 and prepare for the 10 years anniversary in September.
Thank you for your patience and trust,
