Help! : Restore Request Thread

PostAuthor: Alexandru Stanicu » Tue Nov 04, 2003 4:49 am

Because we now have code that is made to restore your items if you are still retrieving them during a crash, we will not be granting restores as a top priority anymore. We will also be severely limiting the conditions for a legitamate restore.

There are a couple reasons for this:
* Avlis is growing too large to deal with the number of petty restore requests that require only the restoration of a couple items.
* Restore requests should really not be needed because the auto-restore persistent death code works fine 99% of the time.


Because of this, restore requests will ONLY be granted under ONE condition:

* You have died and not recovered ANY of your items on your next login.

Read this CAREFULLY. This means you can only ask for a restore if you lose EVERYTHING. If your items get jumbled up, or if you only get half of them back.... no restore. We can't keep up with the requests for minor restores anymore.

EDIT: this excludes plot items.. those will always stay with you so do not count toward the item loss stipulation

Second... the restoration of characters is now a LOW priority, meaning it will take a WEEK or MORE to get a character restored.

We know that the death code does not restore everything every time, but we are still working to improve that. Item losses are just a casualty of the system, and we cannot help them at this point. We are working on it.


Third... DO NOT ASK FOR CHARACTER DELETIONS HERE. If you made a character and you don't use it for 90 days, it will automatically be removed from your vault. You do not have to request a delete. Simply stop using your character.



Now, anyone who has LOST EVERYTHING can repost their restore request here. All others, please refrain.


A reminder:

If you post here requesting a restore for a 90-day purged character, check this thread frequently. If the restored characters have not logged in at least once by midnight the day of the restore, the characters will be purged once again by the clean-up script.

Thank you.

Requesting a restore for character "Shiryn", who seems to have been eaten by Autobic. After logging in today for the first time in two weeks or so, I was prompted to logout so Autobic could perform an update or something, and upon attempting to log back in the character was gone. Possibly linked to the duplicate character name (the duplicate level 1 may be deleted if it would help).

GSID: NetRacer56
Character Name: Shiryn

Thank you.

You should be good to go now. No restore needed - MadK@

About an hour ago, while transitioning from Wilderness to LeOr, then Leor to Visimontiusm, and finally Visimontium to the Underdark, all of my character's plot keys have gone missing from his planar keyring. I didn't lose any other plot items. Oddly, all of my quickslots wiped out upon transitioning from the wilderness to LeOr. Also certain items had their properties wiped out. For example, my hood of theives, swords and bows no longer have any special properties.

My character name is Dar'neth Faverar, gamespy name is drin_swordmaster.

Thanks in advance.

Restored from the 30th. ~CPU

Has there been a reset? I think your stuff doesn't return until a reset. - itsabughunt

I'm fairly certain it's had one. It is also possible that someone was kind enough to dryloot my corpse I suppose. - Chasnor

Last known good point: Sat, March 14

Believe I've tracked a problem to a bic edit performed by a team member on Sunday the 15th. The intent was to add copies of player housing keys to my PC, but it appears to have left my PC unable to cast any of the custom Avlis spells (e.g. Glitterdust, Greater Heroism). They have disappeared from the spellbook entirely, so I'm hoping a character restore will fix the issue. Thanks in advance!

Can you unload the keys off the character? I'll restore the older version. ~CPU

original version restored. In playtesting offline in an Avlis module, he appears to be able to cast these spells. NOW, if this doesn't do it when you log into Avlis, I can do one other thing, well, actually two. Please let me know RCon.


Confirmed fixed.

Logged into Deglos, was reduced to lvl 25 from lvl 30, Inventory reflects what I had at lvl 25 which means things I sold off and gave away are back in my inventory.


Thank you,

Thanks for the help! Sorry to bug you again, but it appears that since this restore, Doug's character does not save. Whatever I do when I'm online that used to save, I return to the same character on relog (same inventory, detect mode on, no XP saved, etc.). This same Doug is a properly restored version, it just seems to want to stick around forever (resting, saving, portalling - all tried).

PostAuthor: Mabus » Thu Aug 06, 2009 8:29 pm

I'm new to Avlis (well it's been well over a year since I've been on here and never knew it well before anyway), but I JUST got transferred here and I happened to run into the Shaahesk guys at Fort Something-or-other near Blandenburg and was killed. That's not the problem, as I can eventually find my way there to retrieve my things. BUT...when running around trying to find where the location I died was at from where I came back from the dead at, I happened to zone into the Blandenburg Ferry. For some reason I can't zone in. The loading screen freezes up 100% of the time. Never had this problem before. So bottom line is I can't get my character on to get to his corpse and I'm sure eventually it'll go *poof*. And I can't log on to any of the other areas (mainly wilderness to get back there) because of the "*domination* ... You will be booted in 2 minutes" thing. So is there anything that can be done about this? I just don't want to lose all my gear.

Was right inside the Fort zone from the Drotid War Zone.

GS Name: Lazzdar
Char. Name: Ghu'rock

Your corpse won't go 'POOF', it will remain insitu until you (or someone else) finds it and takes the items from it. In the event of a server reboot the items on the corpse will be returned to you the next time you log in to that server.

The domination is occuring because the servers think you are trying to server hop. Wait 1 hour and you'll be allowed to log directly into the server you are trying to connect to.

With regard to the area you are getting problems loading. This is usualy caused by a missing hak. We updated one of the haks required for the wilderness (a door hak I think off the top of my head) but the new hak was the same name as the old one which is why you see a hang during load instead of a 'missing hak' message. - RSH


EDIT: Thanks. That worked. Got my gear back. Happy. Going to sleep. :shock:

Logged in to Elysia with my PC Jensen Rintel in his Avenger Gear to test if I got all the .haks, and died in the start tent. The message I got said I logged off dying, which I do not recall. Last time I played I was on the wilderness server, and near elf gate, and the Shemathen cave when I logged.

All avenger gear was lost.
