Seems like it's rebooting every 40 seconds, so I think whatever happened killed it dead until the coders can get at it.
do you remember
when you were young and you wanted to set the world on fire?

Apparently Katima was eating a gaspy when she decided to chase someone, and she was wearing bandages. It's devastating.

The silence, staff-side, is disconcerting.

Laura, did weird tribal men follow you around at age 15?

Isn't it like midnight on a Sunday or something there in the USA? Not that disconcerting.

It went down about 3 hours ago, roughly around 9:30GMT, Monday. Oh well. It'll be fixed when it's fixed.

Yep. Those of us about at this sort of time. Aren't the sort of Staff who can do anything about this I am afraid.

Patience till the Coders get a chance to look is the only option.

Yeah, like Tlei says, this is just a case of "people in the USA are asleep."

Correct.  Looking at it now.  I am going to take a short while to try and troubleshoot the problem then I'll get the game back up.

Stay tuned.

This was the result of a 15 year old bug that only crops up every 2-3 years. A lot of thanks to Nathvaan for quickly tackling it and finding a solution.

Wow, great job, guys! But now I'm curious as to what kind of bug pops up only every few years and why.

Are you saying you've actually NAMED the aforementioned bug "the Fisher King" bug?

Basically. Once every three, or four years, my character manages to survive past day 15. This downs the server as Ginka is not used to this occurring. Nathvaan just killed my character and everything works just fine.

True story.  RIP Amos Cofefe McCrashington. You will be missed for a few more years!

Really though it has to do with some behavior that happens VERY rarely and puts some additional character in some save files.  When that ever increases past a maximum string value it cause the file to be improperly parsed and prevents booting.

So what you're saying is, it WASN'T Katima?
