Server Status
We are sorry, but this universe is in flux and is being ripped apart by the expanding black hole.
Ok, server is all back setup, I still need to patch the games code to work on PHP 7.2 and MySQL 5.7, I still need to make a more Space Theme for the Forums due to I had to also upgrade that too.
Ok, the DNS has been updated so I will try and go through and fix the broken game code over the next week to work with the new versions of PHP and MySQL, but the game will have to go into Bug Hunting , and I will start looking into a more suitable theme for the forums.
I am "aiming" for the 1st of November to bring the game(s) back online and with a game reset, things look promising so far.
I seem to be having the following issues while upgradding the BNT Code for PHP7.2 and MySQL 5.7:
• PHP Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '[', expecting ',' or ';'
    • Has been fixed.
• PHP Recoverable fatal error: session_module_name(): Cannot set 'user' save handler by ini_set() or session_module_name() (POS FIXED)
    • Has been fixed.
• PHP Fatal error: Mcrypt functions are not available (ADODB Session Module Created)
    • It seems that Mcrypt is no longer part of PHP 7.2, so I will need to find a replacement...
        • Created a new ADODB Session Module to use openssl and it now uses AES-256-CBC for the encryption of the sessions.
        • So it now it encrypts, compresses and then stores the session data into the database insted of just using Gzip like we were before.
    • Has been fixed.
• Seems MySQL 5.7 doesn't like our tables:
[Create Universe]
    • 1067: Invalid default value for 'created' for the Sessions Table.
        • Has been fixed.
    • 1067: Invalid default value for 'modified' for the Sessions Table.
        • Has been fixed.
[Game in General]
    • Wasn't generating the scores.
        • #1140 - In aggregated query without GROUP BY, expression #1 of SELECT list contains nonaggregated column '...'; this is incompatible with sql_mode=only_full_group_by
        • Has been fixed.
• Seems PHP 7.2 is also having issues:
[Create Universe]
    • 1366: Incorrect integer value: '' for column 'max_hull' at row 1 for setting up zones.
        • Was caused by not detecting if the database had the config table setup.
        • Has been fixed.
    • Not inserting the config into the database.
        • Has been fixed.
    • Not loading the config from the database when recreating the universe.
        • Has been fixed.
    • Now displays the amount of items inserted into a database from an ini file.
    • 1064: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '' at line 1 for setting up ports
        • Was caused by not detecting if the database had the config table setup.
        • Has been fixed.
[Game in General]
    • Wasn't loading the languages from the database due to Variable variables (i.e. $$row['name']) needs to be ${$row['name']}
        • Has been fixed.
This was as far as I got so far due to real life stuff.
We have the following running Services:
Please check back later, or check on our forums on when this Universe will be back up.
All games are known to be of a stable state, however in some places unknown to us there maybe some issues.
