Brief Update

View original post on sealhunter.se
  • The downtime the last 24 hours has been caused due to the fact that the Seal Hunter database is growing way bigger than I ever imagined it to (it is currently hovering around the 0.7 GB mark, and rising) and this has caused slowdowns in various systems. I will be tracking them down over the next few days to minimize server downtime and lag.
  • Work on the new master server is progressing slowly, mainly because...
  • ...I've moved (and am currently more stressed out than I had ever fathomed one could be), and I'll be starting my internship with an actual game developer company tomorrow, leaving me even less free time to work on my game.

Those are the haps, pretty much - I dearly wish I had the time to work on adding new weapons and a friends list and such, but Real Life is a mean mistress. I hope you understand - I definitely do not intend on abandoning the game, but I have had to prioritize development away for more urgent matters lately. Sorry! :(

Keep them matches coming - almost 220,000 of them already - you guys are crazy!

Edit: Our dedicated server host messed up a motherboard exchange. Please bear with us until it is fixed. :\ Fixed.

There have been connectivity issues for some of our services, so we've been given a new IP (whatever that'll solve), and I did not know this beforehand (there are other admins for this specific dedicated server, too).

Give it an hour to let your DNS changes replicate, or you can also try to manually flush your dns (http://www.tech-faq.com/how-to-flush-dns.html).
