Earlier today Rex notified me that the nguk servers were down. i emailed Malice to see what the problem was and he replied with this:
I pulled the server as they seemed to be getting very little usage. I don't have room for servers that remain empty most of the time.
so, "same $#|^ different day"...
i did email back and told him very briefly that at the moment the TM player pool is very small compared to what it should be (for reasons that you AAAll well know), told him very briefly why and that LDA is working hard on making TM the popular game it shoudld have been in the first place. i then asked if when the TM player pool gets larger if we could run an nguk server again at a later date. He replied: "We spent a little time helping LDA sort out some code issues with TM. I'm happy to put the servers back up as long as they are used."
with any luck it wont be too long until those dead elephants are removed from the driveway and resurrected into fresh healthy ones .
on a side note within 3 months (probably closer to 2) i will finally have some form of cable/ high speed modem and will begin hosting Kasplattt myself for those who miss it. For now Karaldar (I believe it was, i could be wrong, and probably am as i tend to be) is running a slightly modified Kasplattt server pack, so anyone who wants to play it can head there.
now i have to rearrange my site again and see about getting the original Kasplattt back up once in a while. bah! and crap!
Let the rocks roll and the battle commence. BZ The RPG. Check out the site! Loads of Tread Marks support and AddOns. (Under Heavy Construction) The non-TM areas of the site have been resurrected!
