server down?

Could not connect to Arcadia.

same for me i live in Virginia, USA. bout 12:10am i was lvling in cave at ice temple NPC 100 gps used for 20 min and got d/c. me and my brother did, and still am not able to log on. hopfully gets resolved soon. thx. My character ThePlug2 lvl 120 tao. my brother TheHustler lvl 121 warrior.
 
yep down for me too... :(. certain stuff are different since this new server domain change. i find my self often lagging for couple of seconds and as well as unusual lag outs. i also notice that i lag for a bit when something new pops on the screen. like the blue or red writing in chat box or if a new spell is cast.. or when i press too many buttons. not sure if its server related but something is different. could be ram issue with my computer but thats less likely. i think its more mir.exe related

Harrisonburg/ ROCKINGHAM COUNTY. about 2 1/2 hrs from Washington DC
 
i think its more mir.exe related
That's like saying "there's a fault with my car I think it's car related" lol

Are you lagging on the forum? What about pornhub? Probably not. If you're only lagging in game then of course it's related to the game. Doesn't mean it's the game executable that's causing it. There's a ton of potential reasons, none of which can be speculated on without detailed analysis. Guessing isn't helpful.
 
Hi, Any ETA on when server will be back up and running? no game means I have to actually do some work now so not happy :)

Hah I woke up at 6 to get some levelling done before work. When I couldn't get on I downloaded server files and started setting up but I ran out of time before I had to go to work. Amazing what addiction will do to a man hahaha
 
Hi, sorry all, the server became unresponsive at 05:08 and was rebooted shortly later by technical staff. There was nothing in Event Logs showing why it may has crashed so worryingly it may be a sign of a hardware problem, hopefully it was a teething issue or possibly Windows Update related as that's quite an aggressive service.

The server should in theory boot itself back up, but user accounts on Windows 2016 will not log in and start services unless the username and password is entered. So I had to do it manually.

Zade any thoughts?
 
That's a bit of a pisser. Best case scenario is a hardware problem as the host should solve that for you and it's not something to worry about.

For the windows auto login thing, unfortunately I don't have a clue, I'm a linux geek at heart <3 fuck microsoft haha

I'm sure there must be some way of configuring it to log on automatically, but I'm not able to speculate any further. Just a stab in the dark it might restrict auto login of admin accounts, does it absolutely need to be an admin account? Try it as a regular user. Total guess though. I suppose if you have a support contract with your host they should be able to advise further.
 
By the way, were there any issues cause by the crash? Any abnormalities etc? Can look into protecting the server from these errors in the future

well man i have a windows 7 running on VM on imac and its been designed specifically for Mir... nothing been changed with that OS since i first installed it 2 years ago, i have disabled all services and other unwanted stuff like internet explorer. everything been smooth for me until there is a patch and as of recently i cant even download the new patch on it. i have to use another computer to get the patch and then transfer it over.. and the reason i mentioned the blue and red writing is cause from what i understand they are embedded into the mir.exe rather then it being posted by the server.

Also another reason why i suspect mir.exe is cause couple of months ago i got around to using this App called PlayonMac which basiclly let you run windows files without the need to use Virtual machine, everything was fine and cool until there was a new patch which included new mir.exe and then after that everything stopped working... so had to go back to VM ware.

I know another friend who also used the same app on his mac and his mir stopped working at around the same time.. GM prolly makes the changes to make the game more smoother which i understand, but it always back fires on poor souls like me.

I reckon Blue chat are mir.exe embeded and the Red announcements are server related. just noticed GM giving us a nice freebee with 1.5x exp... and its showing in red sooo... u know....

How many CPU cores does the VM have exclusive access to?
Is the host disk victim to any sector loss or heavy use?
Has the host plenty free memory?
Is VMWare passing the graphics data to the host correctly and it is being handled correctly?
Is the local network experiencing any unusual activity?
Has the router or switch had any firmware changes?

These are a few (far from all) of the things that could affect the game without you ever changing anything on the VM itself.

If there was a problem with the executable, why do I not experience it? I have exactly the same file

About the blue messages being "embedded" and red messages being "server related". That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
 
How many CPU cores does the VM have exclusive access to? 2 cores but only one has been assigned to VM ware.
Is the host disk victim to any sector loss or heavy use? specific amount of Harddisk been partitioned to run VMware (60gig and only 40gig in use atm)
Has the host plenty free memory? i have given VMware 50% of my macs ram
Is VMWare passing the graphics data to the host correctly and it is being handled correctly? always tried to play around with this but VMware settings are set. an cant change much..
Is the local network experiencing any unusual activity? only time that happens is when ppl come to the house an they start connecting to the router.. gives me issues for few minutes but it sorts it self out shortly.
Has the router or switch had any firmware changes? not yet..

it does man... cause when i experience those 1-3 sec lags... i go like WTF and look everywhere on screen and the only difference i see is a new msg popping up on the screen... while this is happening the game timer still ticks just everything graphic is frozen.. meh prolly server or the new harderware related or i need a new computer.. my computer was made in 2009 lol.
