    Ideas as to why battles crash the server.

    Post by Nasira on Thu Aug 23, 2012 8:55 pm

    If we don't find a way for the server to support battles once more, Treehouse will die. Currently there is rarely people online from what I can see (granted, I'm not very active at the moment), and when there is they are AFK and on other servers 'cause they are the only ones online.


    If you have an idea, no matter how trivial, please post it. It could be anything.

    Possibly a plugin? We could 'vanilla' (Minecraft term. Just remove all the plugins) the server and see if battles are working without any of the plugins

    /me was on a hiatus for awhile. Wouldn't know anything about this or if you guys tried this before.

    Are all the servers having this issue? If not, can't vappy just download another server patch and switch everything over to the new one? If it keeps crashing, then there is something wrong with the scripts or the tiers.

    Not all the servers are suffering from this problem. I think that vappy should remove the scripts, conduct a few test battles to see what's wrong, and then re-install them. From my observations, I think that battling with an alt that possesses auth seems to crash the server. I've seen regular users battling just fine, but it seems to crash when I battle.

    Then it's probably the scripts causing a force close or it could be the battle settings on the server window. I hope it gets fixed, otherwise, it will die like Nasi said.

    I've battled countless of times when they're allowed on some unauthed alts, and it seemed to work fine. I still believe it's something with the Wifi Clause. It's always seemed to crash when I used it.

    We can run a test when I guess just auth are on to see if Roxas is right about the wifi Clause or not

    Hey, can anyone get on the server? All I get is a white screen and it refuses to let me log in.

    Rick, when you tested this, were you batting a fellow member of auth or a user? Just wondering whether it's Auth vs. Auth battles that cause the server to crash. (Obviously, it could be purely coincidental still..)

    Misora and I battled yesterday, and it seemed to work fine (we didn't use the Wifi clause just in case) so if it is battling itself, it'd be auth vs auth.

    I was battling Kira, and we had the Wifi clause active.

    since it takes about a year for PO to make a fucking patch, it could possibly be dead by the time you guys finish figuring it out and/or the patch is released.

    We need to find a time to test this. I would recommend tonight, or as soon as possible after that.

    We will obviously need at least 1 user, 2 members of auth and Vappy to put the server back online if we crash it. I will definitely be on tonight, so if we don't have a user, deauth me so that we can test this stuff.

    Guys, vol and I tested the battles without the scripts, on a authvsauth and uservsauth trial and the wifi clause worked. So it must be a deal with the scripts. We also tried authvsauth with the wifi clause. Worked. AuthvsUser did not though.

    Necrobumping this thread, but the update to PO ver. 2.0.06 has alleviated the battling disability problem, but has brought up another one (items seem to be disabled). Locking this for now.

    EDIT: We have a Pokemon Showdown! server now. Check the Server Status thread for a link to it!
