Problem with server?

Postby Corbeau » Tue Mar 25, 2014 7:26 pm

Server crashed some half an hour ago, then was restored. However:

1. It seems that a turn was lost on GT10-Africa. I found my ship where it was yesterday, no MP left.

2. More important, I'm having a diplomatic meeting in GT09 (crashed, I restored everything) and when I leave the game and go back to it, the meeting disappeared and I have to click everything again.

(In the meantime meeting ended, but someone else may have this problem so take care; it is also possible that I misclicked, didn't re-check, so don't panic :))

Copy-paste of my PM to XYZ, sent 15 minutes ago, when he asked about server status:
Davide wrote:A series of power outages, broken raid mirrors and consequent overload has put to light a synchronization bug between the processes of Greatturn. As a result, 1 savefile was reverted. This should have caused the game to fold back by no more than 19 minutes.

Only now I see that all matches have actually been reverted by somewhat 4 turns. No idea why but I'm digging it.

GT09 is not reverted 4 turns, it's definitely today's version.

Gone again... Do you know how often stuff is saved? I don't want to do the diplomatic meeting five times in a row and I'm going to go away soon... And it is pretty important to finish it this turn...

I'm in a rush..

All GT servers should come up within the next 5 minutes, and all savefiles should be restored at the correct timestamp of the crash (1 to 19 minutes before the outage).

Ok, thanks. So, basically, if something was done less than 20 minutes before the crash, it's a matter of 1d20 if it will be restored... :)

I didn't know this "1d20" dice notation. However it's not a gaussian distribution, but a random distribution with a mean of 10 minutes.
Edit: that's correct :) with only 1 dice (1d) you get a random distribution, so ye you can say 1d20.
