haven't been able to join the server today, did it crash or is it down to repair the inventory problem?

I've contacted Zrh and Hawke, neither have an idea nor have been able to reach Dark. If someone has other means to contact Dark that would be the best option, or maybe Exovian?

This is the third day down I've seen it down for me. Perhaps there was an IP change we were not informed about too?

Alright, sorry for the delay in responding guys, I'll try and explain what's going on to the best of my knowledge.

Basically, on Friday I did a server restart to try and fix the problem that people were having with progress being reset, however the server never came back online (as would be normal for a restart). Instead, the server failed to come back online at all, despite all attempts to start it, and it later started spouting errors about the server properties file. Naturally, I tried to replace the server properties file with a backup but this didn't work, so I contacted Tech Support for assistance and they didn't get back to me until a few hours ago, and the problem still isn't resolved.

I have absolutely no idea what went wrong, why the server is behaving the way it is, or how to fix it. As a last resort, if Tech Support doesn't come through tomorrow, I'm going to wipe the server files, re-upload the World files saved on Friday, and try to restart the server that way.

I'll be sure to let my friends know. They've been a bit worried about the whole thing.

Seemed like there must have been something funky going on when I found out multiple people were being affected by the player state issue, good to know the story. Thanks for getting on top of it Dark, what a pain...

Alright, server is back online here: 198.23.144.117

To make a long story short, we never did figure out what was causing the problem. Tech Support moved the server to a new node, because they thought it might something wrong with our old node, but that fixed nothing. As a last resort, I wiped the server, but that led to more problems because I couldn't re-upload our world files through FTP. So after a very long, and might I add ridiculous fiasco, I've finally gotten the world files up and the server should be back to normal. Emphasis on should be.
