I've been informed by our hosting provider that they're moving us to a different server to alleviate the recent server problems. This means that there almost certainly will be downtime while the DNS switches over. Expect to not be able to contact chmodoplusr.com for a day-ish.

Colours should be A-OK now so you shouldn't have to squint as hard to log in over on the right.

Incidentally, iceheart and I have taken to playing a new game on the IRC channel. It's called "try and guess how long the database connection will go down for!"

It's loads of fun, especially when I'm trying to post news articles or forum replies.

Quoth iceheart: "happiness walks in my garden tonight".

Avatar upload and the phpBB attachment mod are both working now. That leaves only the colour scheme to fix.

Just a quick note that forum avatar uploading isn't working because the file permissions are wrong on one of the directories; I'll fix this when I get home from work.

I'm also going to clean-up the colours on the login box on the right (note: you won't see it if you're logged-in) as they're way too hard to read right now.

If anyone notices any other problems with the site or forums, don't hesitate to let me know. We need to get these teething troubles sorted out sooner rather than later, so that the team can get back down to brass tacks.

The mail system is working again. Be aware that mail from the board or registration system will currently show up as being "from" hexetic@hotmail.com, while it obviously wasn't sent from hotmail servers, so it may get filtered into your junk folder.

I will change it to send mail "from" ic@chmodoplusr.com or something similar very shortly.

If you already registered but never received your confirmation e-mail, go to the "forgot password" page and you should be able to send it again.

The mail system on this server seems to be down right now, so if you register, e-mail confirmation messages aren't going out. (Gee, this doesn't sound familiar at all...)

I've contacted tech support. In the meantime, I recommend not registering yet. Sorry. You can still participate on the forums as a guest.

I will test e-mail here every few hours and post again when it's working. You'll be able to use the "lost password" form to re-send the registration confirmation e-mails at that time.

We have a brand-new trailer available for download, and this one's for all the Doom 3 fans who don't quite remember Descent...

I call it the Shock Trailer. The more game-music cognizant of you may recognize why.

Anyways, it weighs in just under ten megs and you can grab it from moddb. DivX codec is required.

Welcome back to Into Cerberon. I hope the two weeks of downtime weren't too harsh. For those of you who missed it, the basic story goes like this:

1. Everything fine and dandy
2. iceheart performs mysql upgrade on doom3reference.com
3. All tables lost, including those for the IC board
4. Everything not so fine and dandy

When the DB died and iceheart realised that he hadn't made a proper DB backup (you can't just back up the mysql_data folder for innodb tables, you need the logs as well), I realised that:

a) The forums should be hosted on the same site as the, uh, site.
b) I should set up a CMS so that I don't have to copy-paste my posts into the forums to get comments
c) I need to control the site and the forums.

So, here we are. Into Cerberon's forums and site are now hosted by xn3.net, the UK-based hosting service that IC lackey W3bdevil works for. I'm paying less per month for more storage, more bandwidth, more features, and - best of all - more control.

The other major change is moving the gallery and the primary downloads to moddb. moddb is, quite simply, awesome, and the gallery system they have is way better than anything I could've made or found or whatever. The best part is that I can grant team members who register for moddb the ability to upload files and images of their own to the site, making my job as "Site administrator" a lot easier, and giving me more time to focus on my roles as "Team Lead" and "Lead Programmer".

Anyways, in the coming week I will be directing my efforts to regenerating as much of the content of the forums as possible. Most of you who visited here were probably aware that there was a not insignificant amount of stuff there that the team was using to build forward; this will need to be rewritten or salvaged from the forums database dumps.

Welcome back to Into Cerberon. Let's get crackin'.

Sp3ctre has uploaded a new QuickTime VR movie of his 'Gunboy' model to our moddb site with 30 different views of the ship. Check it out, then leave your comments in this forum thread.
