Technical Report - 15/10/2019

New backend RPG-X feature added


While working on the new theme I realised something I was working on which will query our game servers and display their status (like GameTracker does) would allow me to implement a feature that was pending.

The RPG-X servers will now automatically revert back to the default map if the server is empty for longer than ~30 minutes.

This feature was suggested to help ensure our servers are available to users who may not have all the maps.

When the server has one or more players the system should not interefere with the session, should you experience any issues, such as randomly getting switched back to RPG_POSEIDON_B please inform me.

Technical Report - 20/09/2019

SERVER2 was infected by a crypto currency mining malware causing Spicy & Teriyaki to go offline


Due to a malware attack on our SERVER2, Spicy & Teriyaki were knocked offline as theh attack was attempting to use ~2800% of our CPU resources.

As good practice, the server OS was wiped and reinstalled along with redeploying our services from clean backups.

I have also taken the liberty to severely harden our server security, this has been increased to a much harsher and higher degree than after the previous attack on the EE server affecting the London RPG-X server.

I would like to take this opportunity to reassure everyone that no personal data was accessed as the attack was isolated to our SERVER2.

This has also given me the chance to get Spicy & London running exactly the same, fixing a couple of issues with Spicy and making managing both servers a whole lot easier.

A full security review of the TLO servers will be performed in the coming days and I intend to roll out some security changes in an attempt to make us much more secure.

Thank you for bearing with us during this downtime.

Announcements / London RPG-X Server - Maintenance
« on: August 21, 2019, 04:56:52 pm »
Hi everyone,

Due to an issue over at EE, the London RPG-X server will be going offline on Sunday @ 4PM BST.

The server it is hosted on will be undergoing a full reinstall due to a malware issue (resolved for the most part, just good practice to reinstall after such a thing)

I fully intend for the RPG-X server to be back up in time for Temporal Leap and am aiming for it to be back up before Tyrella.

Apologises for any inconvenience caused by this.  I will update this thread once the server is back online.

I have been planning to run this competition for a few months now, but have only just really had enough time to dedicated to building a new theme.

The winner of this competition will work closely with myself to hammer out a new design, you will get exclusive (along with Cabinet an POTLO) access to a development build of this site and an upcoming forum upgrade, you will also get your name immortalised in the footer of the website

Episode one began where the story will end, Captain Savage and Kajan meet face to face, alone, for the first time.

During this encounter Savage reveals to Kajan why he opted to carry out a plan that Kajan has been trying to stop Savage from doing.

During this flashback we see Captain Savage try and realign the temporal crystal matrix, in doing so he is shown what could become of him and his crew.

Savage sees an argument between Dulmur, Tate, & Savage on the bridge, arguing over which course of action to take, Savage caves and lets Dulmur carry out a plan that could save more lives than his own.  The plan doesn't work, but Savage thinks complying with Jaja IV's request to leave and not retaliate may help them in the future.

Upon arriving back home, Savage is shown that this was not the case, Jaja IV advanced beyond the Federation's level of tech and they were there to wipe the quadrant out.

In a last ditch attempt to save what remained of the present, Savage charged the temporal core one last time and jumped them to a short while before the battle commenced, using in warp maneuvering the Ariana is positioned close to the attacking fleet as they are warping into the quadrant, Savage uses the ships auto destruct to blow most of the fleet up before the battle ever begins.

In the aftermath of this vision, Savage opts to keep what he saw to himself, whether this will cause problems for him in the future he doesn't know.

Kajan begins to tell Savage his story...
