Where are all the titan hosts at? collided into the Europain moons again? :smt013
So just 1 host of all the basics and now nobody else can host lux anymore? :smt017
Isn't this moving the needle in the wrong direction? :panic:
I guess you're more of an entropist than I am dustin. :smt029
If you wanted to kill lux why not just shut down the whole shebang? :yoda
Instead you prefer a long slow downward death spiral?

I think he should send an e-mail to paranoiarodeo and BEG him to come back to Fix the broken site.

I have tried to open a room to try to stop the lagginess,,,, and in the last game BDF was NOT even able to move and his timer did not work.

But, I guess he is in the process of SHUTTING DOWN the site and not allowing anyone else to host.

I would hope that he would stop in and answer some of these questions and problems. We are here trying to help and he could at least fix the LuxServer
to allow others to host.

BELOW IS WHAT SHOWS UP WHEN I TRY TO HOST A ROOM !!!!!!!!!!!

✱ Validating the nickname 'George874' ✱
✱ The highest ranked players will be in the next game ✱
✱ ERROR: Forbidden. ✱
✱ The LuxServer has shutdown ✱

titan rooms appear to be long gone today.

there is only one bio room open (europa), and it is set to cycle. there are 18 people in the room atm, and a second bio room would be most welcome. it would also be nice to have a dedicated ranked bio room for those who enjoy 'the chase' on the weekends (since bio seems to be the only game in town these days). if that's not in the cards, can we at least figure out why the tracker/server is preventing others, who are more attentive, from hosting? there seem to be a few who have expressed interest, but nobody seems to be able to host, and nothing is being done to remedy that as far as we can tell.

cheers,

m

I have continually tried to host all week,,,,,,,,,, but, it continually posts the above message *** FORBIDDEN ***. I really wish Dustin would just reset the tracker to allow others to host.

He has promised to be " MORE ATTENTIVE" , but, alas it seems that is another lie. He continually makes promises and then does NOT keep them.

At least when ParanoiaRodeo was here, he made some valid attempts at trying to hold the sinking ship together.

PPLEASEEEEEEEEEEEE............. DUSTIN..........................

Have someone monitor the site if you cannot or DO NOT WANT TO !!!!!!!!!!!!

No, pickle, I don't think so. Nonetheless, that wouldn't explain the lack of response from dustin, although he has been twittering and instagramming away,

Looks like it may be tied to publicly advertising the host.

Try hosting a private game and having people join your IP.

Might be a temporary work around until you hear what is going on.

Speaking of "fixed it for you"...

I seem to remember dustin saying he had given the current mods the ability to change settings on the rooms. Perhaps one of them could change a disused room to Bio-Deux, and/or make the rooms Ranked for the weekend?

And yes, I had to look up who the current mods are.

:oops:

Now the Bio-Deux room is frozen. And it's been a week since this thread was started, with no response for dustin or the mods.

C'mon. :smt019

i agree and i am very sorry, nobody official did reply here yet. I myself was very busy in real life the last two weeks and was not around (sorry therefor). Dustin established two independend hosts (EUROPE and TITAN), so i if one causes troubles the other one should still work. As far as i can see it, at least the EUROPE hosts seem to work more or less fine. The TITAN host seems to be down for some reason i do not know.

Unfortunatly there is nothing the mods can actually do (we are only moderators and no administrators - so our powers are limited) - only Sillysoft can fix this.

I can also confirm the actual problems about hosting. It seems it is not possibe at the moment, to host your own games. I myself cannot host too (i tried to setup several hosts for you over the weekend at least, but it did not work). Dustin is informed and hopefully he will reply and can fix this soon.

I have no info, what is happening/causing all these issues. Fact is we all can (just) use the EUROPE hosts at the moment.
If there is a major demand, we mods could change one ranked classic room to a bio room. But why not just try some classic games or MOTW these days?

I please you all to report bugs, but please discuss in an objective and reasonable way. I can understand everybody's frustration - but accusations, speculations won't really help.

I (as mod) personally apologize for all the troubles and the shortcomings at the moment. Thanks for some patience.

(BTW: Usually frozen rooms should restart themself after a while. If we mods see a frozen room we will try to restart it manually, bust most times when rooms are frozen, we mods are also not able to enter the room in order to restart it)

Thanks, GFips.

I think it would be useful to change one of the unused rooms (maybe Classic Widescreen or MOTM) to Bio until dustin (whatevers), so people can switch when the room crashes...as has been happening frequently. And it would be good to make one of the Bio rooms ranked for today, so those who are chasing are less frustrated when we lesser mortals get into their games.

I appreciate your efforts in being the only one of 5 "officials" to respond, even though you have been busy.

I will try to be around today for the chase.
If there is the request i will try to change the rooms by majority decision of the players around. I do not really want to turn off the MOTM room as the motm is ending also today, but i could change one of the other rooms if there is the need. As Long as there is only one Bio room, i also do not really want to set it highest ranked as i might lock out some lower raw players by this cction from bio,
So i am unsure what the best option would be. So hopefully we will find a solution satisfying at least most of you. Please show understanding that i won't do too major changes unless it is really needed and requested (as i am afraid, every change might be also some risk to loose another working room).
Sorry once more for the inconveniences and thanks for your understanding.

So lets do the best out of the situation. We still have some rooms working :-)
Lets give classic, rome or MOTM also a chance :-) Hopefully we all will still have some fun games (i myself will guest out for other humans, if needed. I have to work today, so also my aplogy in advance if i am short in time and won't be able to respond always in time)

Why not just cut through all the static with just the truth? Call Dustin! It was made known to many that ALL mods would have dustin's # just in case something catastrophic in luxtopia happened (like these past few weeks)! Why is it taking dustin this long to fix his 'flagship' game when he's on twitter or other "medias" constantly?
where are any of the other mods in game or forum? This all just seems as if it is entirely preventable... :panic:
so all you can do to help is change 2 unplayed hosts over to highest ranked 6 or so hours BEFORE the "Chase" end?
what a waste of time... :smt009


Guess I'll just start breaking out the finger-paints, glue and scissors and this time I don't think I will be "nice" or "Kind" in my art...
