Gaming night - stress testing the server
Copy-Cat wrote: I'm in, trying to fix my account first. Hint hint.
I sent Ben a text message on Sunday the 5th letting him know about the website login issue. He didn't reply but I think he doesn't know how to send a text reply to Canada. Previously he said he replied but I never got it.
Today I sent him an email with further detail but he usually is slow checking his email.
Until then we are on our own in terms of game keys and making sure everyone has a unique key.
Several of us today were on the server (5 total in 2 different gaming sessons) but then everyone got disconnected after playing for a while. Not sure why we got disconnected because the server was still running when I looked into it. There may have been a partial crash and the server auto-restarted. Just to be careful I rebooted the server anyways (it worked fine the rest of the night).
After the server restart we had a bit of problem with people being split between Discord and TeamSpeak. Some people didn't want use Discord and some didn't have TeamSpeak on their system any more. Both have their benefits and downsides. We will need to figure out what will be the common voice app otherwise the community will be split up.
Discord: Can run just from the web browser but also comes with an installable app. Anyone can create a server for free.
TeamSpeak: Old school voip that has a lot of features but has fallen in popularity with many moving to Discord.
I am easy and will use whatever the majority picks.
Going to try to play again tomorrow at slightly earlier time: 4pm Eastern (UTC -4), 9pm BST (UTC+1), 8am NZST (UTC+12)
