    Default 2011-03-01 crash - More details

    I recently re-located some rather large files on the server. These files are not ordinarily backed up as part of the game backups. Unfortunately, when I moved the files to another location, they were subsequently included as part of the backup, creating a gigantic file that filled the available disk space.

    The game detected that a player file did not write correctly, and triggered the disk space failsafe, which shut TFC down. Unfortunately, the equipment purging process wasn't so smart, and continued to try to run, corrupting perhaps a couple dozen player files. I have recovered those player files from backup, and are current as of 2am this morning.

    I plan on fixing up the equipment purging process so that it is better behaved.

    I would punish that silly purging code with some form of discipline!

    My pfile is still broken. I need recovery please.

    Clarification: Belsambar (II) needs a restore. I am presently on Belsambar (V) at level 3 with a note posted. Incidentally, I found a bug.

    Also interesting to note that Belsambar (III) is noted to the game despite the fact that his only existence in TFC was during the blanked period shortly before the v4 changeover, when v2 was also set as active for a bit. Belsambar (IV) would have been the creation for the one and only time Belsambar (II) has purged.
