The servers export all information to disc every 10 minutes. If you happened to get something within this 10 minute window, and then the server crashes, that will happen. I wished it didn't, but it does. We had the "export" feature running every minute before, but it caused some really serious problems. I can experiment with this again, as we now have more memory in each server, but I can't guarantee anything. I'll post more on this topic under Official Announcement if/when I do.

It happened again just now, I went ld and came back sans the 12k xp I had earned in the last hour(not 10 minutes).

Ever since the last time I ritualistically hit the save character button, but it didn't help icon_sad.gif

The save character button only seems to export your character to the local vault, NOt the server vault...too bad.icon_sad.gif

Anyway, the character should be saved when you relog, so if you just did a lot of things, be sure to relog, and the char will be saved(probably).

Yeah i know both myself and my brother have had this happen to us a lot lately. We'd have earned a good deal of xp and items and stuff in the span of a few hours, and even with the relog to change characters, all the characters had lost everything gained during the WHOLE playing time. The character saving system really needs to be checked out and fixed.

Yup. I believe I have found the problem. It looks as though my web browser (Mozilla) was caching the webpage that does the exporting, so it was only running every now and then. I've done two things this morning. First, changed the page to refresh (therefore export) the characters every 5 minutes, instead of the 10 it was set to before. Secondly, I've added a line to the page to makes the page "expire" after January 1st, 2001. So, as long as we don't do a time warp (I love that movie icon_wink.gif ) my broswer won't cache that page any longer. Please please please send me a PM if this doesn't clear the problem and you loose anything after 10 minutes or so.

Thanks an awful lot icon_smile.gif

One more noob question incoming...I can only play one character per server restart? I rolled a rogue, but decided it would be better to start out as a ranger to get the the free DW, but it would not let me play the new guy.

Yep, that's right. One character per server restart, so we don't have metagaming and other annoying stupid powerlaming tricks...  Reply with quote

you can always switch to the other server and play there until a restart  Reply with quote
