Server gone?
« on: March 18, 2014, 09:41:48 PM »
So, I crashed, and now I can't seem to find or reconnect to the server and I have no idea why.

Any luck in the interim? Did it screw with your antivirus? Did a restart help?

Welcome to my world. I unplug and replug my router everytime this happen. It just boots me out and then I sit there and can't find anything for 20-50 minutes if I don't fiddle with the router! Had it for months if not years by now : (

Connecting fine, but it looks like the server rolled back characters that were saved, too.  I dont get it.

Phew. It's general issue then. I thought I was the only one. Rolled my character back to more than 24 hours ago.

Yeah, I'm very sorry about that, but  it's a consequence of the power loss. It rolls back to last reset to prevent character corruption. Not that much we can do about it. :-/

Thankfully,  they are exceptionally rare.

Is it possible and more importantly, are DM's willing to assist IG with reverting some of the damage done by rollback? I find myself in quite a difficult position now, because my character is now in dead/penniless/unarmed state again, which I pretty much managed to get sorted in the past 24 hours or so. I apologize if I am going off the topic, but I wanted to know would posting in Generic Request thread would be viable in case such as this one.

I'm afraid we generally can't reimburse the losses people have suffered as it would take a huge amount of work applying it to everyone.

Again, we are very sorry about this, but it is beyond our control. Thankfully it's exceptionally rare that it happens.

If it helps any of you who've lost anything feel better, the last power outage I had blew out my modem.... I'd rather lose a few things in-game than have hardware failure preventing us from playing our beloved POTM.

Yeah, it was actually caused by an energy saving light bulb exploding - thankfully nothing else got damaged though.
