Basilisk Publish 8 Merge - June 4th 2016

http://goo.gl/gGUjQa


On Saturday, June 4th, (The exact time will be added later), Basilisk will be taken offline. Our host will do an SSD upgrade and after that we will preform a database update and then the code from Nova will be merged with the Basilisk code.

Unfortunately we do not have an ETA on when Basilisk will be back online but considering SDD upgrade alone will take some 3 to 4 hours, after which we have a DB update and biggest code merge ever... Expect one hell of a long downtime.


This means that any changes that were made on Nova, will now be on Basilisk.


As it is with every merge, it's expected to be unstable for the next week or so and bugs are inevitably going to pop up. Any and all bugs found should be reported on our Bug Tracker (Mantis) (http://www.swgemu.com/bugs). If you don't know how to report bugs, you can find more info here (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22463).



Basilisk patch notes (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=201) will be added at the beginning of the merge.

If you need support please submit a ticket to support (http://support.swgemu.com/) or join us at live support (https://support.swgemu.com/visitor/index.php?/Default/LiveChat/Chat/Request/_sessionID=/_promptType=chat/_proactive=0/_filterDepartmentID=/_randomNumber=hnuee6u6vo0fj6vtr525q6wc92sy16xy/_fullName=/_em)
As always TC: Nova and Basilisk server status are available on our front page www.swgemu.com (http://www.swgemu.com/) or on our IRC #status channel.

We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued support. We hope to see you on Basilisk as soon as it's back online.

Well technically.. we did look into it.. and kinda did fly around on tatooine using a basic TIE fighter shell, visible inside not outside... and flew around the planet... that was about the gist of it from what I recall back in my QA days.

Does the in-game clock continue to run while the server is down?

For example: If I have a structure and its maintenance will run out in 5 hours and the server is down for 15 hours, will I be behind by 10 hours?

And BTW, pub 8 looks to be great!!

I want my jukeboxYes, all timers in the Emu are "real time" timers. Harvesters continue to harvest, Factories will keep producing, and all maintenance will keep deducting. If a resource times out while the server is down, then you will find the amount you would have received deposited into your hopper and the harvester will be turned off, just as if the resource timed out while you were offline normally. The only difference is that resources, instead of being replaced soon after they despawn, will be replaced (if needed) in the process of bringing the server back up.

No new vendor issues that we're aware of, nor anything new with droids. Same issues that existed with droids in Pub7 will exist in Pub8. Our fixes for droids are being held off until Pub9 due to the extensive testing needed on them.

Just tested it out on Nova. Long story short, droids are completely useless until Pub 9. Any droid that uses a General Droid Module Socket Cluster or Combat-Capable Socket Cluster has those modules deleted upon crafting. That means no more R2/R3/Probot with crafting stations, no more R2/R3/Probot with harvesting modules, and many, many other things.

Nova is running code that is not going to Basilisk with publish 8. Droids will remain exactly as they were in Publish 7.

All starport/shuttle timers should be fixed. The issue was much less apparent on Nova though, which means we won't be 100% sure the fix works on Basilisk until the merge actually happens.

Perhaps pvp may start up again with all the fixes that will be in for faction bases.

I certainly hope so, since Ivojedi & I worked for many weeks meticulously re-building each & every type of Base (pixelated 'brick' by pixelated brick) as well as each corresponding factional spawn (researched 'stat' by researched stat) .

Of course, in order to thoroughly notice (and properly test) all the changes to Faction bases, players will need to DESTROY any old Pub7 bases and replace them with the new more correctly emulated Pub8 versions.

Planet chat is still there right?

Correct.

WTS: Pre Pub8 bases. 500 mil. PST.

But seriously, I've never blown up a faction base. What's the point to laying down bases or destroying them? Do you get something out of it?

dont noobs hang out on planets such as tat and naboo while experienced players are either standing around cnet or hunting dathomir
speaking from experience i played before general chat and it was hard to learn anything
with it added you then have experienced players talking to each other from across the entire server and new players can pick up on how this game works and learn alot

I know the Emu team is busy right now pushing out Publish 8. But I want to take this time to give thanks to the Emu team for returning to us SWG Veterens (and others who aren't veterens of course). Thank you for bringing back a game that was an MMO beyond MMO's. It was truly a living breathing world. And it still is. I know it's not finished and I, like so many, can't wait until the day it is. I know, and I'm sure others do too (I just don't want to speak for them), you guys work long and hard to bring back an experience that was second to none. And I, for one, am grateful and thankful. So to you, Emu team. Developers, coders, CSR's, Mods et all. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all you do.

I know the Emu team is busy right now pushing out Publish 8. But I want to take this time to give thanks to the Emu team for returning to us SWG Veterens (and others who aren't veterens of course). Thank you for bringing back a game that was an MMO beyond MMO's. It was truly a living breathing world. And it still is. I know it's not finished and I, like so many, can't wait until the day it is. I know, and I'm sure others do too (I just don't want to speak for them), you guys work long and hard to bring back an experience that was second to none. And I, for one, am grateful and thankful. So to you, Emu team. Developers, coders, CSR's, Mods et all. From the bottom of my heart. Thank you for all you do.

I like to say, great job for the upgrade of support and awesome job on the publish !
Keep up the good work.
Just two question about new content and something i was wo ndering about.
Is this permanent :
Removed the Nightsister armguard from loot and added it and the Rebel Endor Helmet as options to the Veteran Rewards System
Or a temporary thing, these are just one of those missions that's not to be left out of the story line.
Also i was wondering about naboo missions that are leading to boss nass on naboo, are they active ?

Lolindir
06-04-2016, 05:28 PM
Its permanent, as permanent as things can be in a development project, mening, if someone finds proof it was differently, we will change it (yes, I know nothing of this was in the reward system, but its either that, or removed from game)

ETA of how much longer server is gonna be down for?

This is the biggest publish ever, and during some in the past servers where down a long time. Was mentioned to expect a really long down time, I've seen it up (locked for testing) they want to make sure the changes/merge stuck, and some new issues didn't arise.
The devs have done a wonderful job so far, as this is usually done in their free time, I just want to thank them for all they have done as well as taking time from their busy lives to give us that publish which fixes a lot of issues.

Because Basilisk is essentially a production system, whereas Nova is "testing," it is impossible to predict the exact consequences new code will have when interacting with "real data." So, depending on the scope of issues, it can be something like modifying a set of fields for all rows or those meeting certain query to completely rewriting the conversion for schema. It's like a box of chocolates. You neva know what u gonna get.

I would let the server be up for more than a few hours before using /claim, assuming they are working...just in case, you know, rollbacks etc. Although I'm curious if that is the case, would your /claim ever have existed in the event of a rollback?

Yep, down again. No worries guys, keep at it. Totally understandable after the list of adds to this Pub.

Things to note while I was on;

1) Mission terms not paying out the right amount, even in solo group (should have been 4K, but got 1600).
2) Several times during combat, would stay in combat even after lair was destroyed and even after getting on bike to pick up new missions back in town (about a 2K hike to stay in combat-tried peace both command and key several times).
3) Long time to open vendors on Dant. and see inventory. Seem to be worse just before sever went down (could be connect).
4) Droids lost all mods, but do think this is a current issue (lost crafting mods).
5) Was grouped for and tried to drop from group. Took almost 6mins for release from group after command was issued (tried both command and key mapping).
6) Consumed Brandy, but was unsure if it took. First try did nothing to stats, but second try did... Could have fat fingered, but thought I should note it in case others have similar issues.

Hope you guys find this useful. When it comes back up I will post any other weirdness for ya.

I'm sure this not the right place for bugs, but wanted to see if others were having issues to before chasing that route.

3) Long time to open vendors on Dant. and see inventory. Seem to be worse just before sever went down (could be connect).
4) Droids lost all mods, but do think this is a current issue (lost crafting mods).
5) Was grouped for and tried to drop from group. Took almost 6mins for release from group after command was issued (tried both command and key mapping).
6) Consumed Brandy, but was unsure if it took. First try did nothing to stats, but second try did... Could have fat fingered, but thought I should note it in case others have similar issues.

Hope you guys find this useful. When it comes back up I will post any other weirdness for ya.

I'm sure this not the right place for bugs, but wanted to see if others were having issues to before chasing that route. a lot of that sounds like deadlocking issues and server lag. Not surprising if all that was happening just prior to server going down.

The server was quite solid for me. Of course I am running a beast of a machine.

One thing I noticed is that when I got knocked down in combat that the animation didn't fire until my combat queue was empty.

I think my legitimate question got drowned out by all the nonsense.

No, it didn't.

I see/saw every single post & question asked.

Some are more "legitimate" than others though.

Why was disease DoT made lethal, but not poison? Wouldn't poison make more sense since it's damage and disease is wound?

Ask SOE. :mrgreen:

It's interesting how so many of us are eager to play this amazing game despite the fact that we still have a ways to go. We will never give up the goal of Pre cu.

Fine machine but Intel just released the 6950x. So you are out of date. Might I recommended the 950 Samsung also.

I played SWG back in the day and was pushed out with a lot of others after the NGE BS. Just wanted thanks guys for taking SWG back to its original game and I will support anything you guys decide to do as long we get back Jedi and JTL. Great works and good luck on the future of SWG.

You can play swg on a toaster, you don't even need a video card at all (other than the built in one)
This game was developed for systems that were around in 2003.
A $50 rig from a pawnshop running windows 98 will run it just fine.

I hope you are mistaken about that, as we were explicitly told that the buggy droid code from Nova would not make it into this publish. As an aside, you can run two instances of SWG on a Nintendo Gameboy from 1989, so your system specs don't matter.

It's true that SWG was optimized to run on older machines. However, it was designed to exceed the hardware limits of it's age. Through the years of testing the game, even in the Core 2 Duo era of Intel processors, I found the game would have problems with fluidity. I can tell you with each system I build my performance is better and better. More power is always better right?

Not really,

An instance of swg takes less than 250K of ram and almost zero processor.

I'm inclined to agree with this post (concerning SWG and system specs), normally more power is better, but it also depends on your OS and it's requirements. Windows XP, which is what the game was mainly designed for back in the day, had far less processes/services running, than say today's 7/8/10.

Also keep in mind that a lot of people bump up the FPS cap (which defaults to 30 FPS) which wasn't done back then, but overall SWG is a spec-friendly game, however things such as the volumetric shadow shaders have memory leak bugs/non-optimization in our client that lead to more 'power' seemingly being more useful.

Regardless though, might as well use the tech if you own it.

Yep, down again. No worries guys, keep at it. Totally understandable after the list of adds to this Pub.

Things to note while I was on;

1) Mission terms not paying out the right amount, even in solo group (should have been 4K, but got 1600).
2) Several times during combat, would stay in combat even after lair was destroyed and even after getting on bike to pick up new missions back in town (about a 2K hike to stay in combat-tried peace both command and key several times).

Regarding #4, have you tried recharging your droid? I couldn't buff myself using my med droid when I logged in, but recharging the droid fixed it. Dunno if that might affect the crafting ones as well.

Yes, Windows XP was definitely optimized for it's hardware acceleration. I was also under the impression that there was optimizing "leaks" per-say in the engine that caused various performance issues. Also I tend to think this is partially why better hardware, GPU, CPU, and so forth will provide less slow-downs. That's the main performance issue I've experienced with the client. While the performance maybe relatively even through the board a sudden slow down will occur. Thus faster hardware reduces the un-optimized failure of the software. My experience with various computer builds (many) has been the faster computer (usually with high-end specs) always provided the better performance in realtime.

Problem is it's a new publish and there are problems.
You get that Basilisk is a test server and we are testing?

There are different problems that end up deadlocking the server. This is expected with a merge if this magnitude. It isnít the same issue each time, but they are all getting fixed, so that it often is a new issue that makes the server go down. As you can see in the OP I worte, expect it to be unstable for some time.</SPAN>
