Oldschool VIP programm
« on: June 15, 2016, 07:59:25 PM »
With DayZ 0.60 we gonna add an awesome way to support our server and get benefits for it! If you support us with at least EUR 5,00 a month you will now become an Oldschool VIP. A support of at least EUR 5,00 entitles you to the benefits for exactly 30 days after the payment was made.
 Benefits for Oldschool VIPs Oldschool VIPs will get the following benefits:
 
  • Reserved slots: there will be reserved slots for Oldschool VIPs. So if the server is full you have premium access to server slots that allows you to log on to the server more easier.
  • Premium access to server events: Oldschool VIPs get premium access to all server events (like Champions of Oldschool, Skalisti PVP, ...) -- so there are always reserved VIP slots for these events.
  • Access to special VIP subforums.
Important notice: starting with the 0.60 patch we will roll out our new Oldschool VIP program. From this day on it will be possible to become an Oldschool VIP by donation. However, to show our gratidude to those who supported us in the last years we will grant all past donators an Oldschool VIP membership for 30 days after 0.60 patch came out. After that all previous donators will loose their special Oldschool VIP status. You can then become a VIP again by donating to Oldschool DayZ hardcore.
Every donation done via the Oldschool VIP program will be used 100% for the server, and it would make future improvements and keeping up this service possible. At the moment our monthly costs are EUR 96.20 just for the gaming server -- costs for Teamspeak and hosting the forums are not included.

As long as there are 50 slots, two slots will be reserved, as soon as 60 slots are available, we might rise to four slots, but we will see if this is really necessary.

Reserved slots is a feature offered by battle eye. It is there since the server is private. We just never used it. It is the same function, that fires the welcome text for donators "Donator bla connected"

It would not be DayZ if they would not break existing functionality. The reserved slots worked yesterday, with the updated its fucked up ;). I will deactivate it for the time being and try to fix it in the next days

The Oldschool VIP program is now up and running. It worked for me. Any other VIPs please confirm.

For all other players: currently it appears that if the slot limit is reached (ie. 58 slots) you are just getting kicked without a message. I will file a bug report with Bohemia Interactive.

Interesting feature. I always thought this would be a great way to raise money for the server. Lets hope the devs fix the going back to menu problem soon because thats quite irritating for regular players.

That said I donated 5€ on 12.12.2014 with my Forum EMail address but I am not a VIP. So something may still be off with the implementation.

The way it is now is terrible - you get kicked back to main menu without any message. You also can't spam connect.
Please don't leave this feature enabled while it has these serious flaws.

@Blaxxum: Your application was from 2014, I did not add all donations from the beginning, but I gave you grace time to now. Should be VIP for the next 30 days from now on.

This is a reminder to all VIPs that are donating with an alternate email address. I NEED YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS TO CONNECT IT TO YOUR ACCOUNT. If you are using an alternate email address I need to know. Either put it in the field "Alternate Email" in your forum profile or send me a PM with your Paypal-Email.

NO. Because it will be empty again. We had this in the past. All people spamming server #1 and server #2 having 5 players. 90 People complaining in the shoutbox, that they cannot connect. When you ask them why they do not use server #2 they say: its empty, I wanna play on #1

Morning guys,
some questions about VIP Slots.
Yesterday i send some money via paypal. If now the server is full and i want to join, did you kick the last person connected the server without VIP-Status?
Cause im pretty sure this happens to me yesterday. i log in, play 5 minutes (i join by 58/60), bang, back to main screen.
no problem with that. so i knew i send money, cause this server is my fav and will donate.

big thanks for all,
and if you have time, can you check if im already "VIP", i know it can took 2 days, but maybe its already done  8)

cheers,
Elite :-*

You get not kicked when you are already ingame! You simply cannot connect when only reserved slots are available and you are not a VIP.

If your donation was done with the same email that you used to register to this forum, you should be on the list. If not, then let me know, from which address you donated (PM, not in this thread).

I have noticed, that sometime Battleeye takes some time to kick the 59th player, but not 5 minutes. Maybe 1-2 minutes max. Usualy within seconds. Normaly you get only a "joining Game" and next you are in the main menu.
I'm the friendliest guy in Chernarus if you kill me I will be reborn, but if you kill my friends.... I WILL COME FOR YOU!

1-2 minutes sounds realistic. not 5 minutes. sorry for that.
i was just running on a road. :)
