Emergency Maintenance and Aftermath (2/12/24)


Widower

Hi all,

 

Around 1:00 PM EST (6:00 PM UTC) on 2/12/24 we became aware of some issues with one of the database servers and had to take it down for emergency maintenance. We have resolved the immediate problem, and do not anticipate any further issues. However you may experience short-term rollbacks (roughly 4-5 hours) on characters on Torchbearer or Indomitable, as well as missing/duplicated items in your email or on the AH from the preceding 24 hours. If you do notice anything missing, please submit a ticket through the support portal and mark it as "Lost Item and Influence Claim." Moreover, characters that tried to transfer to those shards this morning may also be stuck in transit; submit a ticket and a GM will get your character back as soon as possible.

 

Thank you for your patience! We will have further details available as soon as we can.

I can't check now, but what do these rollbacks enatil?  I played a couple hours on Indom before this went down, does this mean I have to take my Defender through the Talons and Monsters in Cimerora again?

I guess the real question is should be avoid using the market and email on Torchbearer and Indomitable until we hear back about this issue?

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It is who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.

I have an opposite experience. After the forced shutdown, I found 5 duplicate IOs in my AH Stored window. these were the 5 IOs that I removed from the AH Stored space right before the emergency maintenance. I suppose I'll just leave them there until the Devs resolve them.

So I logged on my fire/ninja this mornin to move some enhancements over to my bank and a huge surprise awaited me. Yesterday before the maintenance I ran an Aeon sf with 2 of my friends. This mornin the toon is missing multiple powers from my primary, secondary, pool powers and all of my epics! Not a happy camper right now. I took these on my phone because i don't know how to do a screen shot while in the enhancement screen.

Sadly, you're not the only one as others were hit by that as well.  Submit a ticket here.

I already posted a ticket while I was logged in. Really hope those like myself that was affected by this get back to norm quickly.

Potentially; some characters may have saved to the database, but as you can see, some have not.

No, the problem should be fixed. Also, auctionserver and chatserver are global services and operate across all five shards; they just happen to live on the same SQL host as Torchbearer and Indomitable.

Wait, so, the servers are STILL down because of this? The 'Aftermath' bit kind of implied that it was already over. I wanted to log in to check if any of my characters were missing anything, but...

Nope, just regular Tuesday maintenance.

Ouch!  Not a dev, but that sounds like your toon's last save was mangled.  Be sure you put in a Support ticket ASAP reporting that so it can be resolved.

It's a bit of a pain, but here's how to do it on Windows (other OSs use similar steps):

  1. Have a graphics program like Irfanview 64 running with no image (in Irfanview, press the D key to delete anything present).
  2. Alt-Tab to display the City client showing your Enhancement screen.  Scroll to the top on the right pane to show all the powers at top of that long listing.
  3. Type Alt+PrtScr to get a screencapture of the active window.
  4. Alt-Tab to display the graphics program.
  5. Type Ctrl+V to paste the screencapture into the graphics program.
  6. In the graphics program, save the current screencapture to a new filename.
  7. Delete the current image to be ready for the next screencapture (in Irfanview, press the D key to delete anything present).
  8. If still have powers in the right pane to screencapture
    • Alt-Tab back to the City client.
    • Scroll down the right pane to display the next set of powers
    • Then go back and do again steps #3 to #8
      • Remembering to save the next screencapture to a new file name.
      • Likely with "1", "2", etc,. in the filename for each successive screenshot.
  9. If all the screencaptures are complete, you're done.

Under Windows, Snipping Tool will work in CoX if you have it activated and enabled (Ctrl-Win-S). That can be more efficient than full screenshots at gaming resolution...
