Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / "Beta". And now?
« Last post by n4ttl on November 10, 2018, 10:58:28 AM »
This week BI announced that DayZ is beta now. What does this mean for Oldschool? Will there be a server and when?

In my opinion the current product is far from being called a beta. In software development beta means feature complete, bug fixing only. The current game is light years away from being feature complete, a lot of stuff is not working, there are not enough weapons (no real sniper weapons,...), stuff that already worked two years ago is not in the beta yet, the persistence is not working. So to be honest calling the game beta now is just a marketing move to trick people into thinking the game made a huge leap forward. IMO it didn't. But it was clear that something like this will happen, because earlier this year experimental branch became the new stable branch and stress test branch became the new experimental branch. So it is a continuation of the things we experienced the last years, we are just using other names for the same stuff. Frankly I expect a paid DLC in 2019 that brings in the missing features.

Like with every major update we see a lot of players coming back to try out the game, and when you look at steamcharts you will see that the peak number of concurrent players currently is as high as it was two years ago. Apparently a lot of people are coming back to try out the game again. Coming back to see that the game is still broken.

In the past we were always providing a server when there was an update. Only to see that there was a peak of players for five or six days and then having an empty server for months... This time, for the first time we won't do that. We will wait and see how the situation develops.

The reasons why we won't open a server at the moment:

- not enough features to keep players interested for a longer time
- no working persistance
- no killlogs, thus no way to find cheaters and hackers

Another reason is with the server files out the only option for us running a DayZ server is running it on a dedicated server on which we have full control (and not being dependend on a GSP like Fragnet anymore). However renting a dedicated server is a financial commitment for a longer period and it makes no sense to set the stuff up only to realize that in four or five weeks nobody is interested in the game anymore.

In the meantime I am playing around with the server files and perhaps there will be an Oldschool mod. However it all depends how the game itself develops over the next months.

Let us know what you think about the current situation.

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Oldschool 0.63 up and running!
« Last post by n4ttl on September 13, 2018, 06:45:27 AM »
добрый день, survivors!

Who would have imagined...

the Oldschool server is up and running on 0.63 experimental! At the moment the server might be up for just a short time. Bohemia revealed plans of making the server files available in the  next weeks. If this is really the case Oldschool will defiitely host their own server(s). So for the meantime we will run our server with Fragnet and will see if it is really possible to run our own servers. You know how it is with announcements from Bohemia... If it is possible though, we will set up the new servers and stop the Fragnet server. Also, if there are no people interested in playing we will also stop the server again.

At the moment all the stuff like kill stats, reserved slots etc is not working as it is not set up yet. I'm not sure if we will configure everything if the server is canceled again within a few weeks as it is a lot of work. On our own servers there will be a lot more possible I suppose.

Enjoy!

Sad to hear but an understandable decision.
Thanks for providing this great server and the effort all of you have spent into it.

"Dear Survivors,it's about time to talk about the content update that's coming to Stress Test branch very soon and will get rolled over to the Experimental servers after making sure everything works as intended. " Status Report 31. July 2018.

We are getting there...

That is a shame because I cancelled the service today. Finally the money run out. I do not believe anything they say anymore. As I do not want to pay another 400 bucks for another three monts of empty server it is over for the time being.

So far running Oldschool for at least the last one and a half years was the biggest money burning machine. There are better ways to spent 2500 Euros. I'm off the hypetrain.


If they ever manage to bring it to experimental or even stable I might reconsider starting the server again.

Please do not donate anymore, guys. Thank you.

*pulls the plug*

Server will go offline on August 28th 2018.  If a wonder happens and BI really releases something I might cancel the cancelation.
But first I go on holydays to Ukraine! Cya in three weeks.
