Training Ground #1

Recently i have been experiencing some problems with the server.

At first it was just lag and the occasional "Server did not respond" error message, but recently when i have attempted to join i get no error message, but just the "please wait" message, which just stays there, i get knocked back from the server more times than i'm able to join and i'm wondering if there is anything that can be done, or that is being done.

I know i'm not the only one who gets these problems and for those of us who can't play RvS 24/7 it is important that when we get a chance, we have the opportunity to get on.

Thanks for your time

I wonder what kind of people Ubi has running it.

You know the other day my game got a critical error (printed a debug of C++ code that looked like AI/Movement) and it sent me to report a bug to a place that didn't exsist any more ^_^

yeah UBI migrated RvS to its "retired" game server so everything is on legacy support now most links won't work. you can't even change your ubi login password anymore.

When 'Letdown' was about to be released, the servers went really bad, because, we assume that UBI were putting all of theirs 'techs' onto the new servers.
Now we see the same thing happening..Vegas mean anything to anyone?

:laugh:

But yeah i'll second Hexen's problem and release a funny problem of my own. My younger brother in the past (like 2 months ago?) team killed on several servers and it seems to be affecting me now. The punkbuster kick/bans from servers grows like bacteria! At first I couldn't play on a few adversarial servers. Now I literally can't play on 99.9% of the adver servers and about 50% of the coop servers. These bans may have been growing gradually but with only about 500 RvS servers, there isn't much hope. I just hope it doesn't "auto-ban" me from SAS TG #1! Blum 3

Might have been a Pb global ban, in which case you are screwed

Haha, I think I may have him buy me another UBI CD Key if Las Vegas doesn't look that great. And considering hes six years my minor there shouldn't be much problem in "showing" him the "error" in his ways. Oh and I don't think it was a global ban because I can play on literally all the foreign servers. And even stranger is, I am not anywhere on the Punkbuster Master Ban List. Perhaps I have found a Punkbuster...bug? :eek:

the MBL(Master Ban List) is a tough thing to shake, and now most admins don't care if you have a new cdkey they're banning based on hardwareid, which is basically the serial off of things like your graphics and mother boards.

from time to time they do lift them, whats your in game name I can check to see if your MBL'd?

these are the guys that run it they have some tactics I really don't agree with but most people use them:

Only for cheaters, do they deserve that.

Morons should just ban locally, since most servesr thrive on them Smile

I've noticed TG1 has been not responding alot lately too, or not showing up in the list alltogether. Far more than it used to be. :frown: UBI getting worse? Who'da thunk it?

Can't we call them and talk to them? UBI, I mean? Not sending an email or post in their forums, which is so easy to disregard, but an ordinary, old-fashioned person-to-person call through the remedy still called "telephone"?

I am sure that we can talk our way in to someone in charge, if we just show proper politeness, mild persistence and understanding.

Anybody got their number? Blum 3

I dont think they are interested Rouge. UBI dont actually own Ravenshield any more.

nope
the licence was sold on about 3 times to various houses. Which is why u find new copies of RVs very cheap

RSE were the developers, they actually made the game, i do beleive from what Shield said, that they did R64:Letdown too.
It is very common for a company to sell the licence on, after it has made enough money for them.

Ok. So you're saying RvS is living its own life then, and no one is in charge for the game and servers :tongue:.

It does whatever it wants. It trades with itself and owns shares in several drilling companies. It drives a Model T and only stops at traffic lights when they're green.

Please, the situation is getting worse for me.

Although i am not on as much anymore, when i get the chance the only way for me too get on is for a server reboot, which means it is difficult when the server has non SAS players.

I am not sure whether there are any options available to you, but i would expect the situation with the server to deteriorate and i would urge you to look at this situation if you have not already done so.

we are looking into it. However short of charging you all a monthly fee for being a member, theres not a lot that can be done.

Noer should have a temp server up till he gets home. TG#1 has had problems for a long long loooong time....it would be great to solve then but I don't think we have enough money to buy out the company.

Since this is not WT, I don't think we're be needing to pay dues.

Noers server is sleeping just like JB's are. Yes it's a huge problem, you can't join the server without it getting rebooted first.

We should think about buying one instead then. Get all in the clan to pay a small amount, I'm sure it cant be that expensive.
