Game Processing News
I added 7 days to all active players renewal dates for the processing hangup.  Some invoices went out today.

Glad everything is back to normal!

How are you doing these days, Rick?

As of 9pm 5/4/2021 something is up with the order entry website. 

The domain is not expired, not sure what is up.  Contacting Mike now but I don't know his availability.

If I learn anything else I will post.

Meanwhile, hang in there.

Everything looks back to normal at midnight.

Apparently IBM (hosting company for the servers) did some maintenance on the server.

For those that didn't know, we do pay IBM to have hosted servers to ensure we don't have computer crashes or lost data rather than run the game on our owned machines. Normally that works very well but maybe once a year we get an outage for a couple hours.

FYI, the server needs to be upgraded with the latest software to address a returning player situation. Which means that I have to place all current games on hold while I do the update. Will get back to everyone when the server is ready to go once again.

The server upgrade went smoothly. I need a few days to verify the order entry website changes. If all goes well, games will resume on Monday July 25 or the following day.

Also, I cleared the Ready status in currently running games. The reason is that some spells have changed and may no longer be allowed for your kingdom (e.g., only Evil kingdoms may Summon Skeletons). So, I reset everyone's Ready status for review before the turn runs. I also moved the turn dates to Wed next week.

Testing is progressing and I'll post some of the upcoming changes for this new release. I'll also post on the forum all of the new kingdom setup files (32 kingdoms) for everyone to review beforehand. This is especially necessary for those who are in currently running games to see if your wizards may still cast a certain spell, or to see some other change for your kingdom.
