Ladies and Gents the transition to our new sight is upon us. From this point moving forward I would like to ask that everyone sign up and use the new forum. Please let us know of any issues you have. We recieved good info from our stress test post operation. After a few server tweaks from our server hosting service we should be good to go. We did not hit any memory limits and just had some minor server side issues.
If you haven't already, post in the "Need Member Access" thread in the Recuitment forum. An officer will give you member permissions, allowing you to access to the Operations Forum and the Calendar.
Not sure if you have member permissions? Go to the forums. If you see "Operations Discussion" in the "Members Only" section, you already have member permissions. Otherwise, post in the following thread and ask for permissions: http://exeoutfit.com/forum/recruitment/new-exeneed-member-permissions
For those of you who were unable to make the Friday announcement or those who wanted to read over the more comprehensive detail I promised, here it goes. Sorry, little behind in getting it all posted up. This thread will be the summary, with more specific detail going into other sticky posts.
bugs features, but also reportedly 30%+ improvements in FPS, especially during major fights. Cross those fingers ladies and gentlemen. Lot's of new and returning players likely to be out, so this week will be an excellent time to go represent EXE with pride and smoother framerates.
Well that was fun.
I'm still working on how the hack happened exactly, but it seems like the target was the software used to run the host rather than our website. Luckily, they made a couple of mistakes and left some evidence.
So I made a stupid mistake today. While updating some of the modules on the site, the database got corrupted. And because I didn't make a backup before starting the patches, I had to use a backup from 2:30pm PST today. So unfortunately, all posts from the last 8 hours or so are gone. I do have a backup copy of the corrupted database. If anyone wrote something particularly long they would like restored, let me know.
September 19th is talk like a pirate day! All outfit and squad communication must be done in Piratese (and it's a word now!)
