7DRLs / PokemonRL 7DRLC 2017 Success
« on: April 04, 2017, 03:28:40 PM »
Well, I forgot to post about it here!

You can check the full story here: and play online here:

Your goal is to become a Pokemon master by defeating the gym leaders of the 8 cities in your region. Map is randomly generated, deploy your pokemon using "R" and a direction to fight wild pokemon and gain XP (or to weaken and catch them!) your pokemon will evolve and learn new skills.

Pokemon data is heavily based on the Gen 1 official dataset which I've been gathering from around the net. This is an open source project: contributions are welcome and you are also welcome to use the data in your own game.

YesH! give back now!° :D

Slash, as far as I know you are primary maintainer of roguebasin. Would you be willing to give someone permissions to edit main page

Well, I'm looking at the list of sysyop and I dunno if any of them would be in for assuming a more active "editor" role for roguebasin

If some's really interested on working on it, and preferably has a record of activity and invovlement in the roguelike community, I'd gladly give access.

Nope, not for now. I've removed the link until we come up with a better solution.

Auto update may have been disabled in one of them server moves, that shouldn't have stopped it from working tho... I'll check with Z regarding this.

Temple of the Roguelike / October 22 events
« on: October 22, 2016, 01:01:13 AM »
The forums had been unavailable for about 2 days, likely due to the common issues we had had previously with the server (disk full because of logs most of time)

However, on October 22 the server was "suspended" by, they suspected it was compromised by the Linux.Isiport trojan ( ) which would allow the server to be used for DDoS attacks (likely because of the massive attacks that happened that same day) so they took it down. After some talking with their support team I was able to get the node restarted in recovery mode so I could go in and try to fix and recover stuff.

Luckily I was able to recover the most precious data which was the forums database. I almost screw up since in order to dump the data I had to reinstall mysql server and the data files for the pre-existing databases were not overwritten (they were safe on a mounted volume). That was a very close call, for some minutes I thought we had lost the entire forums database.

Then I was forced to do something I had pending doing for a long time: Moving again the forums to a new private server.

We are now running in our own node at digital ocean, this node is EXCLUSIVE for roguetemple, thanks to your contributions. This will help isolate any errors and prevent other apps from taking the site down. I'm also going to set up automated backups so our data is safe. As always please contribute if you can to make our infrastructure ever stronger!

Temple of the Roguelike / Email Server issues
« on: September 24, 2016, 01:55:18 PM »
Our mail sending account at Amazon SES was blocked due to "excessive bounces". I think this is most likely caused by the influx of spam accounts with fake emails trying to get their activation emails.

I'm thinking on implementing additional spambot protection measures and then requesting the account to be activated again..
