WARNING to Changeling (Visi bug)

PostAuthor: pallizard » Wed Jan 24, 2018 11:46 am

Hello all

A warning to the changeling amongs you.

Visimontium server seems to be currently eating all the memorized form of Changeling. Resetting it to the start.

Bug seems to occur when you go to Visimontium through portal or transition to Deglos,and when going *from* Visimontium to elsewhere these ways as well.
Unconfirmed yet whether serverhopping or logging in to Visimontium causes the same issue but as Changeling Hide gets lost and replaced by PC HIDE this seems likely.

Do NOT go Visimontium if you value the forms you copied as they'll be gone even on another server when you arrive there from Visimontium.

Did you ask for a server reset?

Also, can anyone else who has experienced this please add a note in the bug report, so we can confirm it isn't a specific PC.

There haven't been any changes that could cause this, so a server kick might help, or possibly something got borked (very technical term, yus).

I have restarted the server.

It said i had been up for 17,555 days, which I think is somewhat unlikely :shock:

Any brave Changelings willing to test please? }8)

I logged in with one of my many Changelings and she seems OK.

I levelled up, moved from Start Area to the Inn and my memorised forms still remained. No error messages, so I think it may be working now :wink:

I already did Visi, but thanks for doing Deglos :wink:

Problem originally occurred for at least two different changelings (different players) that I know of.
Both upon portalling to Visi, transitioning to Visi from Deglos or leaving Visi through transition or portal.
I hope as well the reset solved it, didn't think to ask for one earlier.

I hate to blame anything on a restart being needed, since things should be able to last over more than a few days, but...

We have 9 mods plus others, all running in VMs on the same physical server, which do their best to keep things separate. Weird things may happen though when things are not kept separate, especially if restarts happen too fast between them (they all share some things, like the DB), and my constant ramblings about players logging in too fast after a restart might even apply (had to sneak that in :P ).

P.S. If the server crashes, and you get booted, there is no need to rush back. DM's won't be restarting the events if you take a breather, and everything works so much better if you wait a few minutes. No matter how fast the hardware is, there are time delayed things happening in server loaded scripts that really do love it if you wait at least 5 minutes before relogging. :mrgreen:
