Games E & P Reset, Open 12/5

Game E - Equilibrium, an original edit by Mongoose.  Please be certain to review the game description for game details and to view some pretty nifty ASCII art.

Game P - Cruncher's Personal game, this edit is currently being played as game T.  However I've made some minor adjustments to the Hell Fire planet, so hopefully it won't kill colos so quickly now.  Also gave the Ferrengi a very powerful planet and 2.5M figs to start.  Should make gridding interesting.  I will be playing this game and taking in new corpies.

Game B reset

If this doesn't fix the port problems, I may just take the server down tomorrow and run scandisk and defrag.  It's sounding more and more like I may have bad sectors on this HD.

Thanks to everyone who's reported issues!

Game B will reset 9/8

I've had reports of data corruption because of the shut-down last week.  Seems my MB battery is dead, and the machine came back up with the date 01/01/05.  I didn't notice that until after I started TWGS.

Games C and F were not effected since they opened on Friday.

I apologize for the restart, but we'd all like to have a "clean" game I'm sure.

T-Storms have passed

Sorry about the down time, we've had some very active thunderstorms here last night.  Didn't want the server to fry so I took everything offline and unplugged.

Back up again, and the weather is clearing in time for the game openings tonight.  Enjoy!

Time to reset some games....

Anyone have any preferences?  Are you currently playing a game you don't want to see reset right now?

Its all MS's fault I'm down...


Apparently MicroSoft has taken down some domains, including the DNS Host that I use.  If this isn't resolved soon, I'll find another DNS.

Micro hosting classic games

I've asked my friend Micro to host some classic games with settings that I use on his server to keep everyone happy until I can get my server back online.  Enjoy!

Working on the server this weekend

With any luck, we'll have this back up again.

Thanks to everyone who'd offered help!  I'll keep everyone updated on status of re-opening.

Sunday, April 6, 2014


Thrice in one day... installing updates and rebooting now.  This may be the beginning of the end of this server.

Yeap, I'm pretty sure it's a HD failure.  When I get it backup I'll let everyone know.
