Epic Stat Server

Postby Miauz55555 » Thu 25. Jan 2018, 23:17

Let's show Epic that there is still some live in UT2004. And also that the UT forum is more a secret place which is not linked on there main paige will not stop us from posting things there. =)

Would be nice if you can post there that it would be great when the stat server gets back up:

_Lynx already gave me a reply on discord that he will bring it up to Flak, but the more post the better. So take the two seconds and post:

Would love it when the stat server gets back up! Thanks!

For context, the entire numerous epicgames.com subdomains have been down for almost 3 days now. This includes both the ut2004stats.epicgames.com subdomain that tracks UT2004 servers' daily online stats, as well as udn.epicgames.com, which hosts a number of informative and instructive content (and some resources) relevant to mapping or modding for Unreal Engine versions - Two being the most relevant to our communities, as it covers UE2.*.

Let's see what some polite rattling of Epic's cage might yield this time 'round...

Edit: I wonder if this downtime has anything to do with this coinciding development of Epic acquiring and integrating Cloudgine as a subsidiary 3 days ago, who reportedly are "bringing cloud computing expertise and online technologies to Unreal Engine games, VR/AR and enterprise applications". Sure hope that among all the technological reshuffling and refactoring involved in this, the ongoing operation of the humble few legacy servers necessary to keep UT2004 alive will not end up being a collateral victim.

I tried to post last night -- but as of today it still hasn't showed up :dunnosoz:

Is it supposed to take this long to approve a comment?

Thank you TC. They do it manually for new registrations and if you haven't post in a while. So yes it can last a few days.

Epic Stat Server

Reminder that it's now been over a week since epicgames.com's UT2004stats and UDN subdomains first went out of commission, with all the troublesome consequences the absence of these useful data and knowledge sources can have for server administrators seeking insights on online activity, modders looking for helpful UE2.* material, and the UT community at large - not to mention with still no word or acknowledgement of the situation from any Epic official as to the handling of the matter.

Since petitioning for any response on the most relevant place for UT community matters - Epic's own msg. board - has yet to yield any result, anyone interested in seeing this problem handled and hopefully resolved could be forgiven for now considering more direct and publicly visible means of getting in touch with Epic and pressing for an answer. The Twitter accounts of @EpicGames and their most renowned CM, @Flak, would be the most obvious ones to contact, but if anyone does attempt to message them about this, please remember that the implied optics of representing the entire, still active and concerned UT community may well factor into their response, so do try to stay factual, respectful and patient (to a reasonable extent) with your phrasing and followups. Oh, and kindly let us know if and when you get some useful reply, too. Good luck :).

Update: UDN has been reinstated via redirect to the new subdomain docs.unrealengine.com (here's Two via the old URL; if you had it bookmarked, you may want to update it), but ut2004stats.epicgames.com is still down.

We are only halfway there, and the part that's missing is quite important to the community, too.

So _Lynx answered in the Beond Unreal discord (link in the info tap from our discord https://discord.gg/X4V8THM):
4 February 2018
[21:22] Miauz55555C: @_Lynx Did Flag said anything about the stats server? Together with the stats server the https://udn.epicgames.com/Two/SiteMap.html for Unreal Engine Two is down as well. Is the data save? It would be a really big loss if all the informations are just lost, as there are still people who edit levels and create new content for UT2k4. It would be very nice if you could may ask her about that, too.
5 February 2018
[21:14] _Lynx: @Miauz55555C I mentioned both, but it got under all the problems that we had in the last two weeks.
[21:14] _Lynx: The UDN is back up, and the server is being looked into – I'm not in the loop on that one, so you may want to check it yourself if it's up
[21:18] Miauz55555C: Thank you _Lynx. Yes the UDN is back up, that's very nice. The stats is still down. Thanks for the heads up. =) Oh and say thanks to Flak as well, please.
