Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Oldschool 0.63 up and running!
« 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.

"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.

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.

If the rumors are true that PU is planning to do a DayZ-mode in PUBG, then they are done anyway ;)

Just to make things clear: I really wanna DayZ succeed and I wanna Oldschool come back and grow. However I have no idea if it will happen. I also think that a working beta/0.63 is months away.  If it is possible to switch over to experimental we will do it. BUT it depends on donation money to fund the servers. If there is nobody funding the server I will shut down. In the last four years I paid almost two years of server fees on my own, the rest was donation money. This is more than 5000 Euros we spent on Oldschool since we started. The work for website, coding stuff, community management not included.

So lets hope the best for this community but also expect that it might come to an unexpected end. Totally depends on what Bohemia is delivering. The recent announcement that Hicks is leaving lets me fear the worst though.

Three months money to go. If the Bohemians release .63 within that time we can stay a little bit longer. If not, we will close down. Sorry.

Oldschool DayZ Hardcore Server / Re: Inaccessable tentbase?!
« on: September 29, 2017, 08:51:13 AM »
I understand the demand for basebuilding and that some people get creative. However it is an abuse of the collision system of the tents and therefore a glitch. It is always a difficult thing deciding the severity of a glitch -- but I use the following rule of thumb when deciding: DayZ is kinda simulation, so is a certain thing possible in the real world? Blocking ways with tents is to make things inaccessible would not be possible. At the same time I have no problems with the apple glitch because it could be considered shaking the trees so that apples fall down.

Server rule #1 can be applied here: no glitching.

It gives you an unfair advantage over other players. I therefore ask you from refrain from exploiting this glitch. Thank you for your understanding.

You are right. You see I even start mixing the town names, so long I haven't played this shitty game ;)

Where are the days when Severograd was so laggy that the framerate constantly dropped below 20. These were the days...

I think whitelistweekend is a very good idea the way m4ttl describes. Its at least worth a shot. Out of curiosity though, if someone joins will they get a message like "whitelist weekend, whitelist at..."?

If so I think that would increase the chances of people actually whitelisting.

They get the usual message "You are not whitelisted. Register at" when kicked. Also we will add "Whitelist" to the server name during the weekend.

Honestly I think disabling whitelist is counterproductive to the issue of missing donates. New players won't even get in touch with this site and it's community, while some of the old members will eventually switch servers because of not getting a slot. Being 30th in queue midweek made me change server already. Will be back for whitelist weekend though. If this event is a success you could consider turning on whitelist permanently. ;)

I have now more than two years of experiencing with whitelisting a DayZ server. The situation chanced dramatically in the last two years. In  the past people wanted to get whitelisted and they went through the process of getting on this list more than willingly. Nowadays they don't. Why? Because of the queue -- there is no pain in waiting in a queue compared to the constant spamming server browser for half an hour. If they get kicked they simply enter the queue of another, non-whitelisted server and never register.

However we understand the pain for whitelisted members that they want to play at primetime and can't. It is the very same situation for members of the admin team. Unfortunately Bohemia deactivated the reserved slots functionality, which would have helped here...

Turning on the whitelist 24/7 is a no go because the server would be empty quickly. You have a turnaround of approximately 1 player in a minute (ie. somebody logging out, and another one logging in), on a typical prime time evening there are about 300 different players playing on the server (two years ago it was about 800-1000 different people). We have turned it on permanently -- after two days the first regulars were demanding we turn off the whitelist. It is like that, what can I do.

What we are doing now is to introduce whitelist weekends like DUG does -- this means on weekends there will be a whitelist and hopefully we will get some registrations.,1774.0.html

So hope to see you next whitelist weekend.
