Events and News / Roguelike Expo as part of Roguelike Celebration 2018?
« on: November 20, 2017, 09:20:46 PM »
Hi all!

I started a discussion about this over twitter but I figured this would be a better place to discuss!

How about a having a "roguelike expo" as a sub-event on the roguelike celebration, where developers can display their games on booths / tables and players can go check them out, as an addition to the main talk schedule, while keeping the single track model for talks?

The idea for this is so that devs of new games can get feedback and promote their games, and existing games can show their new features.

Some options that have been considered:
  • Having it happen on a third day, may be half a day
  • Sacrificing the time for two or three talks for it, may be after lunch on Sunday

Would you as a player or as a developer be interested on it?

Temple of the Roguelike / roguetemple.com moved to wordpress.com

As part of plans to revive the blog, I have moved it into the hosted wordpress.com service.

This shouldn't have a lot of impact over the forums, but if you guys could check http://blog.roguetemple.com and check everything's good, I'd appreciate it :)

This isn't Krice's forum tho. This is roguetemple, with 10 years old rules of behavior that we all ought to follow.

Mushroom, your behavior in this thread is unacceptable. You have been a member of the forums for a long time and I consider you have valuable things to share, please don't be like this - you can do better.

If there's any instance where you feel Krice is going against the rules of behavior, please report the post and the case will be evaluated.

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: https://blog.slashie.net/category/pokemonrl/ and play online here: http://slashie.net/pokemonrl/

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: https://github.com/slashman/pokemonrl contributions are welcome and you are also welcome to use the data in your own game.

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 http://www.roguebasin.com/index.php?title=Special:ListUsers&group=sysop

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 VPS.net, they suspected it was compromised by the Linux.Isiport trojan (https://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2016-030913-4222-99&tabid=2 ) 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! http://roguetemple.com/support/
