Liberator wipe, Basilisk and you...

May, 2012
The SWGEmu Staff





Whats gonna happen?

On May 13th, 2012. 3PM EST (check your local time here (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Liberator+wipe&iso=20120513T15&p1=179&ah=1)) Liberator will be taken OFFLINE, after an hour or so a new Pre-Alpha server will be launched.




Pre-Alpha is launched, so what happens now?

Now it is time for some seriously massive stress testing. New Pre-Alpha server will be running the latest OR code from TC: Nova, stress testing period will last a minimum of one week, during that time we hope that all major stability issues will be found and fixed. After all the fixes are applied, we go in to the test-play phase of Pre-Alpha where we hope to identify and fix all major bugs and exploits. This will be a crucial period for the OR code and for this project as a whole, everything done so far will need to be tested during that time. To reduce the likelihood of future server wipes, it is imperative that everyone does their best to help the Developers find and fix as many bugs, exploits and stability issues as possible. If major issues are not discovered before Alpha launch more server wipes might be necessary.

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Blue Frogs on the Pre-Alpha server.



How can we help?

The Development Team, will need YOUR help on Pre-Alpha to test the current code. Please logon to Pre-Alpha, pick a part of the game you are familiar with and start testing and submitting bug reports. Everything and anything implemented needs to be tested and retested. If you are not sure what you should do or you want to participate in a more coordinated and focused testing effort then please join our QA and Dev team in our IRC #openqa channel. If you are unsure where or how to submit a bug report, please check our "How to report bugs on Bug Tracker (Mantis) (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22463)" guide.



What if i need support?

Our IRC #swgemusupport channel and support.swgemu.com are available to you most of the time.




What about TC: Nova?

During the initial week of pre-Alpha, TC: Nova will be closed for public. Devs and QA will be using it to test all the new patches and bug fixes needs for the Pre-Alpha server. After that first week of stress testing is over, TC: Nova will be open for public again.


Month of stress testing is over, what then?

Pre-Alpha server will be wiped and the new SWGEmu Alpha server called Basilisk will be launched.

Please be aware that even after the new Basilisk server is launched some major fixes and additions to the code may require database wipes. We will do our best to keep database wipes to a minimum, whenever possible we will try to save your character data. We will give advance notice of an upcoming DB wipe. Always keep in mind that this project is still in Alpha Testing and that even though we can clearly see the light at the end of the tunnel, we still have a long way to go before we are ready to release 1.0 to the public so permanent play servers can be created.

Here is a few helpful tips from Max on how to survive a Database Wipe...




SURVIVING THE DATABASE WIPE









When the Database Wipe, or "D.B. WIPE", strikes; You have to be ready to deal with what you are going to do to recover, and how to deal with all the people who can't hear instructions over their own ego.


http://image.ocdsoft.com/images/7z5ovt85k350vodiynpv.jpg
An SWGEmu Sarcasm Agency Production








The database wipe is a rare disaster which totally destroys everything on YOUR server!

Not to worry though, your characters don't feel any pain in a database wipe; it's just like getting a shot at the doctor. Except it’s a mass database deletion.

Your power hammers, stun battons, and composite armor pieces are all sadly lost in The Database Wipe. Nothing is left. Destruction is complete.

To deal with this tragedy, we have found three simple steps help most.


Stop. Wait. Create.


STOP: Stop worrying, complaining and getting generally rowdy about the server not being up and your characters being.... unavailable....

WAIT: Wait patiently and with sanity while the server is launched, tested and made ready.

CREATE: Proceed in an orderly fashion to the now online server and create your characters as new. Thank the hamster on your way out.




http://images03.olx.com.sg/ui/1/11/85/9150685_2.jpg

Note the hamster being absent. This is why it is offline.





Do's and Not Do's


In the event of a database wipe:






DO proceed to eat cookies and drink milk. Statistically 83.77% of players are able to deal with 'DB Shock' (TM) better after a serving of milk and cookies. We 21% guarantee this is not a made up statistic.
DO NOT ask about the server status. The forum and IRC servers have been known to explode. Please, think of the children.
DO use our complimentary restrooms, as long as you flush.
DO NOT steal other people's names. It's not funny.
DO curse the hamster for ruining your evening due to its alcoholism. It can't run while drunk.
DO NOT steal the names of Staff Members. The only thing that will be funny then will be your banned account. Permanently.
DO feel free to retire from your IRC Moderator position. Audune did it.
DO NOT private message any staff about the server being down. We know. Yes. Yes I'm sure. No we don't need reassurance.
DO join #opendev and show your love to our Developers. They built the hamster, they're smart dudes.








Legal Notes

ASKING ABOUT THE SERVER STATUS WILL GET YOU SHOT. WE DO NOT TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOST BRAIN CELLS.
WE DO NOT OFFER REFUNDS FOR DIALUP HOURS USED. GET CABLE.
YOU CAN'T SUE US. YOU DON'T PAY US ANYTHING REMEMBER?
!TCSTATUS DOESN'T CHANGE THE STATUS, ONLY RE-RE-RE-RE-READS IT. AGAIN.

The last part is super good advice. I know its funny but people (more the new people joining the project) need to take all of it to heart. On a less serious note, I would like to thank all of the dev team, I've played many games over the years and this is the only one that has me consistently coming back to it when I have time to play. So thank you!

OMG and it is such one. Not quite so bad as SWTOR was, but still... so disappointing the route they took. I didn't use my beta much. It was pretty much a face falling 'meh. not again. they followed the rest of them.' Complete tangent from I and II. Horrid voice acting (maybe that will be fixed) and basically just easy buttons all the way through. Nasty.

My deepest respect and admiration for the entire dev team. The enormity of your task is amazing, only to be outshined by the progress you have made.
I look forward to testing, changes, downtime, wipes, beta, more wipes, etc. All is progress. Bas will have over 5000 differences from Lib. And NO frogs.
I have never played any other MMO's. Never played x-box or ps. Pre-Cu SWG ftw. So here's my plan.
Read forums.
Read timeline.
Read mantis.
Buy hamster food.
Play swg.
Provide feedback.
Feed hamster.
Have fun.
Lose sleep.

I invite everyone to /join.

:O Shock , all my characters for Nova and liberty are still there, no new sever in this list and no access.

I know this will get fixed and sorted in due time but as a recovering addict of SWG i'd just like to say .......

I was afk when everybody went LD, and so when I returned I discovered that everybody had become tagged as enemies. Apparently my character murdered several people while I was away and he was refusing to un-target a medic's corpse. This poor guy, who's last act was apparently to heal me. :/

I always wondered what level of retardation you needed to not hear the status told to the guy in front of you and ask the same damn question as if the answer was going to be different. Now I KCCO.

Server down bruhs!

Smokin28
05-14-2012, 05:45 AM
Only 3 problems I've found so far:

1. Very laggy, my son gets disconnected every 5 minutes, while I have no problem on a different pc.

2. Auto targeting and auto attacking stuff I've already killed.

3. If I purchase something off planet or from a different cities bazaar, once I travel to retrieve it, it won't let me.
Retrieve button doesn't work and from the details screen it still show "Buy" instead of "Retrieve".
If I try to rebuy it from the details screen, it comes back as "The purchase failed because the item is invalid".

I know this isn't the place to submit bugs, but I haven't figured the submit bug thing out yet. I'll work on figuring that out tomorrow. lol

"DO curse the hamster for ruining your evening due to its alcoholism. It can't run while drunk"

Keep up the good work! :)

Servers going down = temporary inconvenience
temporary inconvenience = improved game play
improved game play = 1 tired hamster!

I want to thank all those who have worked so hard over the years to bring this game back. It's an amazing accomplishment. So what if there are a few wipes, I am just glad to be here when I thought this game was gone forever. I know its silly but I used to spend time making toons with different skills, seeing how they might work with the points we have,and hoping the game would somehow make a comeback. Well thanks to all the devs its back, and when Nova started I tried out the toons I had theorized about. Now we are so much ahead of the game as far as knowing what we want to do with a toon. I will make fewer mistakes this time around than when SWG first came out. Being on a fixed income it also helps me economically. So thank you for that as well..... Arod Greenstar

Excellent read I must say! Thanks for giving us the heads up on a great many things. I will be sure to go buy lots of cookies and some whole milk.
You all have done a great job as far as i am concerned. I have only played SWG for a little while as I bought the game for my 12 year old way back then.
So, I guess I am the new guy and I do find this game to be great fun.

Thanks for the hard work !

I have been searching for the answer to this and havent found it yet...I played on Liberator but never experienced a server wipe.
I read that in a wipe on the server (Basilisk for instance..) i understand all you own will be gone. What about your charactors themselves..aside from starting over do they remain or do they need to be recreated as well?

Sorry for my ignorance if this has been posted i searched for quite a while to find "*the answer*". (*no pun intended to the dev lol*)

Wipe means a complete database wipe, all characters items and credits gone. So yes, you will need to recreate your character

Thanks Ellyssia, looks like i will be back after the wipe in June then. I will continue to test on TC, here is just to many bugs and im sure you got enough reporting on the TKM erea. The stuff i know so far im sure has been reported. So tendwound blows, low end argros hit waaay to hard and i never died so many times ever trying to level a brawler fighting simple low end mobs lol. You know when you spend more tie in cantina healing BF and medical center healing for ever...the game is still a ways away from being playable/enjoyable.
Appreciate the work you all have done and cant wait for a new play server.

Of course the game is enjoyable. Most fun i ever had in a mmo due to the bugs. Aggroed three dune lizards, running, trying to get them off my tail. All out of money, so i could not afford insurance and a reasonable clone, so trying not to die. Struggling with the futility of my endeavours, when suddenly a message shows: 'server restart in 15 minutes'. Maybe that will get them to leave me alone. So i am running circles around mos eisley for 15 minutes, and after restart: still alive.

oh emu, why do you have to be finishing at the same time diablo 3 is coming out

We got together and played D3 through the whole thing in 16 hours...and i found myself bored. That is good so i don't get conflicted about playing SWG :D
