Hello Commanders,

In the weeks to come we are moving the game servers to a different hosting center within EA. This will mean newer hardware and a better performance for the game.

Some of you may have noticed that we did not move any servers as of yet. Unfortunately, due to some delays in the deployment of the new servers with EA and the data center we had to push back the move to july.

The move will be a slow transition and will take us several weeks as we bring down only a few worlds per day to copy the server data to the new data center in the hopes to disrupt the gameplay as little as possible. Worlds will be offline for approximately 2 hours before returning online. We will post a maintenance message for the affected worlds 24h in advance.

You will be able to play normally after the worlds you play on have come back online after the transfer, the only thing that changes will be a new URL for the worlds.

Once the move of the game servers is completed we will require another maintenance to move the rest of the service infrastructure to the new host, we will announce the details separately once that time has come.

So long, see you on the battlefield Commanders!

    Good Morning,

    The server move has the consequence that all scripts have to be adapted. At https://github.com/leo7044/CnC_TA I will upload updated scripts.

    I am willing to adapt more in addition to those that I am adjusting for myself. Please send me the name of the script and the downloadlink via private message . Within about 24 hours I should be able to update and upload the script.
     
    Technical Background :
    Each UserScript has an "include" line. In almost all scripts for C&C: TA it looks like:
    // @include http: //prodgame*.alliances.commandandconquer.com/*/index.aspx*

    The following change will cause the include-line points to the old web-address, not the new one:
    [...] the only thing that changes is the web address of the worlds [...]

    That means it has to be replaced.
    // @include I_am_the_new_web-adress_and_you_have_to_use_me_from_now_on

  • After the problems on the weekend we pre-emptively extend the timeframe of the move to 30th July.
    We hope to move the last set of worlds this week. We may have to make some more Adjustments to the world distribution over the servers if the need arises however during that time.

    Unfortunately there is a hardware Issue, dragging down the server performance. All we can do right now is to shuffle worlds around to redistribute the workload among servers till it runs more stable.

    My latest update is that we are getting an additional server, which may take up to 10 workdays. This is not optimal for the situation but all that I can provide to the community. Tomorrow we will try to troubleshoot and optimize the server-software further to avoid more issues in the meantime.

    I'll share new insights with the community as soon as they become available.
