Yea you are right, and this is not the only time ive been hit with misfortune. The decision to kill off britsteel and starbreaker though is on us however as we wanted to ensure painkiller does not get a player induced heart attack by running out of resources so I am hoping this decision is worth it.

As for the language translations, I would like to thank Kurashiki for submitting a translation for the site in Japanese. Despite not having the Japan node anymore, I think this will be handy to have anyways so if anyone wants to cover other languages, feel free to hit me up!

Seeing as BE is down for god knows how long, and everyone seems to be moving to TSPG, I thought I'd make a little info post to help people:
  • TSPG is NOT Best-Ever. You will need to create a new account if you don't have one already. Your WADs and configs won't be here (someone may have uploaded your WADs, so always check with the .file command).
    You can get your WADs and configs from Best-Ever's static directory: http://static.[bad site]/wads/ and http://static.[bad site]/cfg/
  • TSPG supports optional WADs. These are WADs a user can choose to load if they want - it's good for high-quality music packs. Use the optwad= parameter to add them.
  • TSPG supports multiple Zandronum versions. You can pick whether you want to use 2.1.2, 3.0, or whatever versions we have available. Use the .versions command to see what versions we have available, and use version= host parameter to select it.
  • TSPG is a lot less stable than Best-Ever: MiFU is having trouble getting a new bank card at the time of posting, and we are planning to move to a new host as soon as he gets it. We will, of course, give some time to allow you to prepare for downtime when this happens.
I think that's about it. If you think you're ready, hop on the Zandronum IRC and join #tspg-painkiller to fear the Sentinel!

Well if it will happen again, we'll be back to 6 years ago. No TSPG, no BE, just ol' good Grandvoid.

An upgrade is a far cry from going down for good. No need to panic.

We've almost finished moving to our new host. We have scheduled termination of the servers at 14:30 BST, about 19 mins from the time of posting. All servers will be killed and will need to be restarted.

We've completed the move. We now have more RAM, more bandwidth, and more speed. Enjoy!

Thanks to TheToxicAvenger for "donating" his basement to provide us with this new hosting space.

I still miss those days in a way. But, new technology brings new ways to play. And I have to say;

The future is sweet.

The only thing Murphy's Law cannot control is your pure determination. That's why TSPG is still going.
Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses you know. It's part of being natural, everything has a tone of beauty to it however you see fit. <3

I like how I wasn't even Mentioned for "buying" the linode to make this move possible.. Even so I just put down 5 bucks.. Srsly, that all it takes to get a server there. I hope MiFU gets his Card soon. If he sticks me with the bill, there be hell to pay :p

EDIT: don't know what happened to my post.. but yea.. fixed

I am confused, did you buy the server or did you give Mifu 5 bucks? Or do you mean that you bought the server for Mifu who was having troubles but he needs to pay you back? Why do you need to be mentioned, can't you just do it out of the goodness of your heart?

I went to linode.com, went to buy a server, but it keep wanting me to put in my billing info, and I guess put down money?? It was at the bottom of the page, you can select $5, $15, or $20. Yea Idunno but after all that, it lets you set up and good to go I guess... Its a "risk free" trial I guess..

I guess he will pay me back. Last I saw on IRC, he needed my bank details but, he didn't even show up when I connected so... I guess I have to catch him later tonight cuse timezones... I'm sure he is sleeping atm, or at work

Painkiller's CPU randomly stalled, so I had to reboot it. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Painkiller randomly lost internet connection earlier and I had to reboot the server.

I'm gonna talk to MiFU to see if he can talk to support with our host.
