Rockhome down lately

Post by terror2001 » Thu Jun 30, 2005 3:35 pm

Anyone know any news of Rockhome lately? Been down for almost a week; even the website seems to go in and out of reachability.
When the website is reachable, looking in the forums there has no news of anything.

I was out of town when all this went down, so I never was able to get my character ported to another server. I'd like to see it come up for a bit more time (even if it's dead and nothing is going on) if only so that those of us who missed out on the news can get our character data saved on another server.

I am not sure what's happening with Mystara, but I will look into it.

Thanks, Orleron!

It's comforting to know that someone official is checking on this. I hope Ferus is ok! In the meantime, this is giving some of us a chance to get to know Avlis a little better--and I, at least, am enjoying what I see :-)

Ferus' online time is minimal at best, he is preparing to leave for bootcamp and for some reason whenever anyone tries to connect to the server via VNC, it crashes the server out... it's currently being looked into.

Crashing too

I too am having problems going to hala, I use a Minotaur from Rockhome but the only thing different about mine is that its stuck on Avlis. Im still trying to get custom with all the differences around Avlis. I've recently tried portalling from Elysia to Hala and when I did that it gave me an older version of my minotaur when I use to travel back and forth. It also put me near the Rockhome-Hala Portal entrance. Now when I try to log onto Hala there is no characters to choose. So I'm just hoping to give you guys some more imput. I've put messages on the hala and avlis websites as well. Hope everything works out ok.

Elysia to Hala portal is supposed to be closed now. Maybe that "old version" of your minataur is just that, the version of your minotaur from your previous time on Hala?

Boot Camp!!!! Oh Boy!!!!

Who will be running Mystara while he is away? Is anyone? Can someone get the Mod and load it on a different machine?

The server will be covered in his absence as soon as he gets the VNC stuff taken care of.

Excuse my obtuseness but what is VNC?

So the physical location is not changing?

Who then will do hardware resets on site?

Who will be paying for the ISP fees?

Can someone who will be looking after the server while he is gone,,,Implement the Wemic Fix that Hala found out about.

VNC = Virtual Network Computing ... this is the open standard form remote desktop control. http://www.tightvnc.com/ this is a good version, which I have used for a few years.

Ahh now I can see where this is leading, Mystara Mod will remain on Ferus's Server in the place that Ferus used to live.

Then once upon a time, a piece of software will allow remotely located DM's to attempt to keep Humpty Dumpty Server together and or fixed.

Hey sorry I havent been on for a while. I was thinking the same thing that maybe its confusing it with the other one i used on rockhome. Is there any way to fix this. if you could let me know back on this forum.

oh never mind i see where this went with my character. ya that does sound like what happened to my minotaur character. Only one thing though. server seems really i mean reallllly unstable, anytime there is mass stuff going on the server crashes. I dont think it can handle anything other than shopping and portalling, crafting seems to over load it as well.

Just a FYI, Avlis has used this type of method for several years now with few problems.
