Oldschool goes experimental !
« on: June 14, 2018, 06:34:18 PM »
... at least that is what the devs promissed us. Today we got this message:

Hello Oldschool,
we are releasing 0.63 on the Experimental branch for the public today. I know some of you can't wait to switch your servers to 0.63 Experimental too because we promised you the opportunity to branch switch.

We wanted to give you a chance to switch in the first Experimental release but we encountered some issues with memory leaks on the server machines which need to be fixed as soon as possible. When it is fixed and everything is tested, we will inform you and the switch can happen.

I hope you understand why we can't let you change the branch right now.



So the first itaration of the exp will not be on our server... sadly.

Lets hope that we have enough money to hold an other few days/weeks till they fixed the memory leak .


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!

Well I hope you can handle everything yourself or with Borsuk, Aim. Because I am leaving for Ukraine tomorrow and will be there for at least one week.

From todays Status Report:

We should also talk about our plan to make the Experimental servers available to server owners currently running their communities. Sadly this had to be slightly postponed due to changes necessary for GDPR and memory leaks wreaking havoc on stability and performance. These seem to be fixed as of today, so very soon you will be able to switch over and enjoy the updated version with your fellow community members on your own terms.

I don't know when they did the testing, but I played EXP yesterday and between me crashing and the server going down I could only play between 10 - 30 minutes. Maybe they solved it on an internal branch?

Allowing experimental versions on community servers is a very odd move from BI. This tells me that 0.63 won't be stable anytime soon and in the meantime they are trying to keep the 0.63 hype alive as long as possible.
