Forum Maintenance

Posted 1 decade ago by Ihmhi

    Our forums are currently undergoing unscheduled maintenance. The FF team apologizes for the downtime and we will have them back up and running as soon as possible.



    Among the few problems we're having, I've been told that our forum database has been corrupted.
    Thankfully, we learned our lesson from that huge forum mess-up that we had a few years ago and we have been doing nightly updates. We're only going to lose, at most, roughly the last 12 hours of posts as we restore from the backups. Our forum database is roughly 1 GB in size so this backup is going to take a while. Please be patient.

Update #2:

    It looks like the database restore is going to take much, much longer than we had hoped it would. We're looking to get the forums up by sometime tomorrow morning. We've sent an announcement to this effect on the FF Steam group. By the way, if you're not a member of the FF Steam group, that's usually the place we send out news first. It's as good a time as any to join!
    I personally will be getting into Fortress Forever and hopping onto a server. We don't have the forums to use so we may as well play the game!

Update #3:

    The backup was restored successfully. I really do wish it were simply a matter of flipping a switch and turning the forums on, but there's still some stuff that has to be done.
    It's also been brought to my attention that our wiki is down. This is probably because it is tied into our forums. (An account on our forums also gives you an account on our wiki.)
    In short, we're probably 90% back, but we're going to have to work some stuff out here still. As always, we at Fortress Forever appreciate your patience and loyalty while we try to get all this crap sorted out.
*nbsp;   Lastly, I know a lot of you people must be sittin' bored out there with nothing to do besides play FF. Well, I was recently delighted to discover the Hulu has a whole bunch of episodes of NOVA, one of my favorite shows. If you live in the States, check it out (or proxy in) and enjoy.

Happy Holidays from the Fortress Forever team

Posted 1 decade ago by Fortress Forever Team
Howdy all! Most of the devs have been very busy cranking out stuff for 2.2 and other, larger (secret!) projects of ours. One of said projects we had hoped to complete was Christmas maps in time for the holidays, but we just couldn't get the manpower together. Imagine our surprise when we found a few dedicated, FFestive people in the community had already made some!

ff_verdun_xmas - Mixing holiday cheer with rockets and nades

It's already running 24/7 on the [AE] Public Server for the next few days and will probably be in the rotation of many other servers over the holidays.

Want to grab it for yourself? Here's some download links:

We at the Fortress Forever team would like to wish everyone in our community a safe and happy holiday season and a great new years. 2009 will bring great things for the community and the world, and we are all very privaledged and honored to have such a great fan base supporting our mod!

See you all in 2009!
