Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / The path of Oldschool
« on: June 21, 2017, 09:16:26 AM »
Morning ladies,

the last months have not been very successful. Bohemia takes some time with content and bug fixing (This patch could have been done by me with paint.exe) so that big streamers are not playing Dayz anymore. Oldschool is in the top 10 of world Wide server ranking!

No streamers, no interest in the game.
No interest, no playerbase.

You could count big servers which are closing one by one. UKA was the last of the big servers who shut down his Hardcore/1p server. But there where a lot before. And not small servers.. We are talking about UN which existed for ages. Grumpy Old Gamers.. Which where also big.

In the end there is only 2 remaining hardcore servers. Dayz Underground , which is mainly supported by bohemia, has Admins as moderators on Reddit and according to rumours also moderates the official Dayz Forums.

And Oldschool in his 3rd year. Independent, Liberal, with hard working staff to make your game experience unique.
But in the last few months we never reached the 118,13 Euros of donations we need to keep the server up.
Yes we have some savings but if we continue like that, I don't know if we will make it to BETA.


All the Old Oldsmobile who where the base donators are not playing anymore and the randoms who are playing now on Oldschool since the server is not whitelisted are not really into the community and not interested in keeping it up.

Will Oldschool go down in a few months?

Its up to you.

And that's why I said in the beginning.... "The last months have not been very successful."

Server Events / The BATTLE of the BARREL 2
« on: February 25, 2017, 11:39:09 AM »

The BATTLE of the BARREL pt 2 it´s here, ladies!












////////

Unfortunately there are problems with the whitelist procedure. So no whitelist today as announced!

Part 2 of the BATTLE of the BARREL is planned to take place in Chernarus on Sunday the 12 of March, 8 PM CET in a yet unknown location.

On 8 pm CET we will post a picture in this thread indicating which part of Chernarus you should move into. It will be announced in shoutbox, Facebook and Twitter. Then we will release 3 more pictures that will show more and more excactly where the barrel will be located. This way a coward can´t just run straight up and grab the barrel and log out, if he/she is so lucky to be close by. This time you gonna have to search!

But "what´s innit for me?" you ask. Three weapons have been donated by true hardcore Oldschoolers this time:

Honeyiscool, Cameljohn, Laasti, Mr.Moonshine, Mbok, John Doe donated a cursed SVD with PSO1-1 scope, mags and ammo!




Marzipan donated a UMP with second mag, suppressor, RDS , 25 bullets and Gunwrap!




Honeyiscool, Cameljohn, Laasti, Mr.Moonshine, Mbok, John Doe also donated a FN FAL; ACOG, clip and 20 rounds!



- - -

But goddamit; where is the barrel?!



PLEASE NOTE THE EVENT WILL BE FOR WHITELISTED PLAYERS ONLY. SO MAKE SURE YOU ARE WHITELISTED IN ORDER TO JOIN THE SERVER DURING THE EVENT.

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Persistance wiped as requested in Poll
« on: January 26, 2017, 11:08:12 AM »
Dear ladies,

We wiped the persistence without announcement. The persistence file was bugged and containers where disappearing. To avoid that people just grab a barrel and logout with it for several days, then come back we wiped the persistence without announcement. We thought that if suddenly 160 barrels would have to been calculated by the CLE it could happen, that the CLE starts to delete barrels, which were placed by some players and filled already. That is the reason for the wipe. We hope that you understand our situation we had here and I am pretty sure, some of you will be mad at us.

But this will be the last time we wiped the persistence as I don't expect that it changes anything, but we had to try it.

Kind regards
Aim-iliO

There was a problem with the persistance wich could be solved by restring a file of an older date. The question is... do we want that, or should we give other people the chance to get new barrels. If people decide to give it a new start, we will just continue how it is now.

If you decide that you want your stuff back, we will restore the files to the 22th.

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Fragnet and their problems!
« on: January 11, 2017, 08:04:11 PM »
As of this morning, our datacenter in Stockholm, Sweden has experienced an extended network outage. Unfortunately due to several of our primary systems being hosted from in this facility, there have been unexpected service interruptions over the past several hours. We have been informed this was the result of malfunctioning firmware installed on the core networking hardware, in which the residual effects have impacted any hosted solutions.

The on-site network team has since restored the network, resolving the disruptions that were taking place. As such, all web based interfaces should now be working again as expected, including the Billing/Support Panel, Game/Voice Panel and so fourth. Please note however that due to the aforementioned problems this morning, several hosting machines are still currently offline pending reactivation. Our technicians are working as quickly as possible to ensure connectivity is restored, where we appreciate your patience during this time.

As of tomorrow, January 12th at 03:00 GMT+1, the datacenter will be performing a brief maintenance session, implementing several changes to our network switches. The estimated time of completion is 15 minutes, lasting no longer than 04:00 GMT+1. Please note that during this time, we do expect all services hosted in Stockholm, SE to become unavailable. After the maintenance is completed, we expect any existing stability issues to be corrected.


Scheduled Date: 1/12/2017

Scheduled Time: 03:00 GMT+1
Scheduled End: 04:00 GMT+1


We do sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that has resulted and will proceed accordingly, taking the necessary measures to guarantee our networks remain online and operational. If you do have any questions, comments or concerns, we of course invite you to contact us via the Support Desk at https://clients.fragnet.net


Regards,
The Fragnet Team

« on: August 22, 2016, 06:04:39 PM »
Brothers and sisters,
as the title says, we are curently looking for some support in our admin team, as we are very limited in our uptime. If you are interested in helping out on Oldschool, feel free to contact us. We will have a small talk, play together and see if you fit in our admin team.
Of course it would be helpfull, if you could provide something usefull to our Team, as we have enough (me) useless admins. Curently helpfull would be:
experiences with PHP, Python, javascript, html, Photoshop.
IT experiences,
former owner of a Forum/Server
modder
You should already be an Oldschooler and part of the comunity and best would be a native english speaker.

Please don't be upset if you get refused. We try to do the best for the comunity.

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Hiding the own body !
« on: June 30, 2016, 03:52:04 PM »
More and more I hear that people are hiding their own body after they got killed.

Guys, you played shit, were not carefull enough or did not learn former lessons. In all cases the loot belongs to the killer. Hiding your own body makes you a looser and is highly unfair. You are not worth beeing an Oldschooler.

Apart from that we will not tolerate something like that. Almost 50% of Oldschoolers record their gameplay on Oldschool and if I get a proof of you hiding your bodies, I will ban you temporarely without warning.

Hello ladies,

lately everyone is crying why there is so few ammount of loot on Oldschool. And no you are wrong. There is the same ammount of loot on the server as it is on other servers.

The difference between us and other servers is, that our loot is stashed in camps while on other servers there are less camps.

The CLE is counting the total ammout of loot on the server including the stuff in the camps. For that reason there are tons of clothing spawning at the high military loot location. Noone stashes clothing away. Because of that it keeps spawning. But M4's, AK's and specialy ammo and mags are stashed away and therefore only spawning in very few ammounts. This can be tweeked on the fly, but not by us.

So the situation could change any day by increasing the ammount of loot. This would only change the situation for a short time, as there are a lot of horders on Oldschool (me included.... by the way... who is stashing riders and Black cowboy hats?).

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Ban or no ban ?
« on: April 19, 2016, 05:53:02 PM »
..... a chance to use it? (thats how the question should end) .This question came from an other side and I would like to hear, what Oldschoolers think about it.


Edit:

Before I open my opinion, I wanted that other people vote, to not influence the opinion of others.

I have had several cases where people got banned from Battleeye for having a cheat engine running in the background. They used this cheat engine for an other single player game (they told me) not related to Dayz. So battleeye decided, that having a cheat engine on the pc which could probably be used for Dayz, is enough to ban this players.

So what is the difference between banning someone where you are 100% sure he bought a cheat for Dayz and battleeye who bans players for having a cheat engine on their PC which is probably not been used for Dayz?
 That is one of the  reasons why I voted for yes.

If 100 players bought a cheat... how many do you think would not use it in Dayz... 2, 3, maybe 5? Well I prefer not to allow 5 innocent players to play on Oldschool and been called and idiot by them, than trying to catch 95 cheaters who are destroying the gameplay of others.

Well, this is only my opinion, which does noth have to be right, and the question was an interesting discussion between us admins where I wanted to know the opinion of someone who would be effected by something like this.

I have got send this clip by an Oldschooler



and before I tell my opinion, I would like to hear yours.

Is it a good thing, a bad thing, not worth to talk about... . What are your arguments for or against having serveral accounts on one server.
