before I start I want to thank all those who waited patiently the past week for BC to come online again but without further ado I present you the list of changes BC has undergone:
We purchased Heroes Premium which offers a lot more options now but it doesnt support the earlier heroes files (Classes, professions, levels) and because of that we had to re configure everything and convert 100.000 player files so your levels aren't lost. This process will take longer than expected (Half a day so far and its 1/3 done) so expect the server to come up online when this is done.
Sadly, our current gamemode plugin isn't working and we will have to disable GM temporarily
Due to the limited time and the stress from having to open the server soon, it hasnt been fully reconfigured which means that the events using MythicMobs (Conclave, Guru, WaterArms) will be temporarily disabled as well.
+ Mini Games
To reward you all for your patience we will be hosting different mini game events for an entire week where you can win points and money.
This thread will be updated once the server is up and running as well, thank you for being such a kind hearted and awesome community and the event makers appreciate your help in the questionnaire I added a couple days ago.
If you need any help or have further questions do not hesitate to refer to me or another staff member.
Edit #1: Unfortunately, converting 100.000+ player files will take a little more than expected since its being done semi-manually and the entire process is very tiring. Thank you all again for being patient with us. Ill keep this announcement up to date with everything that is happening.
Edit #2: Like I've mentioned in another post, the script we're using to convert the player files is malfunctioning. I let the dev know and he said he would get back to me in a couple of days so in the meantime all I can do is wait alongside you. I hope your patience
hasn't ran out yet.
Edit #3: Hello again, I really hope that this will be the last edit on an announcement before the server finally opens. If you haven't seen it yet, here is the entire story regarding the holdup for the update:
While I agree that this update could have been better planned from our part, the main issue that's not allowing us to open the server is the fact that the heroes plugin decided that it's a good idea to stop the development of their plugin and start Heroes premium for only 30 Australian dollars. We had plans to either use a custom coded plugin or buy heroes since it would be the fastest and less painfull choice BUT they also decided to screw with the player file database and completely change it so it only supports MySQL. After numerous attempts to talk to the dev of the heroes plugin they shot me down saying that we can either edit each player file into the new format manually or reset everyone's levels which beat the purpose of buying the premium version in the first hand. So, 1 and a half weeks ago, a good Samaritan had the same issue as us with his server and got a dev to write him a script to convert the files. While the script was working fine for the first couple of minutes, it decided to give me the middle finger and stopped. In order to start it up I had to figure out which file it would edit next and fix it if it was corrupted. I had to do this every single minute because the corrupted files were many and I managed to get to the letter C until it decided to soil itself.
I contacted the good Samaritan and he told me he would get in contact with the script dev a week ago
The dev hasn't contacted me yet and we aim to fix the issue during this weekend. If anything goes wrong or if there will be a further holdup, I will let you know here.
Edit #4: Still no word from the developer and the issue wasnt fixed during the weekend. There will be further holdup but we plan to open the server without waiting for an answer. I'll let you know through this announcement.
