The site functionality has been restored.
We will continue to work on fix the small visual details that remain missing. For now, new players can join the game. If you created an account the previous days and can’t login, try registering again with the same email. Some accounts may have been lost because of the downtime.
Let us know any issues you find.
Due to a fatal HD failure in our hosting service, we need to restore an older backup.
To prevent more registered users losing their accounts, we disabled it again until a better restore point is used.
This process will take several hours, but the game functionality is not affected.
When the maintenance ends, new user registrations will be enabled again.
New users registered yesterday that didn’t get a CDKey will get it then too.
Meanwhile, a new SEC2 update for servers will be released next weekend; we are getting close to 2.0.6 final, the last update before 2.1.0, that will focus on new features long time expected.
Final Update: We have included the latest versions in the download section. Currently Beta 2 and 3 for Linux and Windows. We will just continue uploading the latest dev versions, but they are stable enough for use and include patches for latest hacks availables; we focus on the more damaging ones, like Crash, immortal and invisible players. Check them periodically.
Update 2: Windows version updated to 2.0.5 Alpha 3; fixing more false positives and adding detection of more hack events.
Update: Windows version updated to 2.0.5 Alpha 2; fixing false positives and adding a couple extra features under test.
Server admins should unban DAMAGE_PLAYER_HACK detections caused by a bug int the previous 2.0.5. Alpha 1 testing version. (sorry, my fault).
We are happy to announce the inmediate availability of the SEC2 2.0.4 and 2.0.5 update for FEAR Combat Dedicated Servers.
There are open beta testing versions, so we encourage server admins to keep an eye on their servers and report issues.
