Many of you have noticed an issue when logging into different accounts on the regen and sunstrider sites. This is because the cookies that control your login session are currently stored for *.monkeydynasty.org so they essentially overwrite each other (in your browser's cache). The result is annoying as you have probably noticed, but it is not dangerous.
I will be addressing this within the next day or two. Until then, if you regularly use different accounts on both sites, you could try using chrome for one site and firefox for another.
Thanks for your patience while we work out all the kinks of this upgrade + server migration. There are a lot of moving parts and a lot of things I setup over a year ago and don't have a great memory for it all. I imagine everything will be pretty steady in a few days.
There was an issue with voting that was caused by some of our protections, and has since been resolved.
I have also repaired item delivery and sent out the undelivered purchases from the last few days.
I want to clarify that these are two entirely different servers. What we have done here is forked the server so that the Sunstrider server can continue on with the 12 classes, while the Regenesis server will continue being updated for 15 class and beyond.
One of the most common questions is:
"Can I vote on both sites?"
Absolutely, in fact, we encourage it.
The databases are now completely separate, and you can choose for yourself if you want to play on both, vote on both, donate on both. etc. The voting rules do still apply, you may only vote once per 6 hours regardless of ip or account.
Just to further clarify, because I know how "confusing" this tends to be for people.
- You may only vote once per 6 hours
- You may vote on both sites, once per 6 hours
- You may not vote twice on the same site in the same 6 hours
Another common question I get is:
"What about the changes from before Regen that were not completed?"
These changes will be completed on both servers by default. If you want to make any changes to your order you need to submit a ticket. You can cancel on one server and it will not affect the pending change on the other server. This will only be relevant for about 10 orders that are incomplete from before the Regenesis server was opened.
Things like changes, Banana Coupon exchanging, support, everything is suffering right now. We're still trying to get everything smooth and integrated into our schedules, which we already have a lot of trouble with. Please bare with us while we get everything worked out.
We're also patching stuff in from other versions of Regenesis to both servers, more information coming on these things soon.
Not to mention the 2 year anniversary event that starts in about 2 weeks, maybe closer to 3.
We have (finally) finished (enough of) working on Regenesis for you guys to start playing!
The database was just recently copied, and download options are working.
Go here to download the Regenesis client.
Note that the web installer does work, but when you use the web installer you are downloading the entire client to a new folder in your program files. Monkey Dynasty - Regen. This allows you to keep both the Sunstrider and the Regenesis clients so you can play both servers. This is the recommended method of downloading.
You can also manually download the entire client here.
You can alternatively replace the launcher in your current MD client with the auto-updater. However this will remove your Sunstrider client, and is not recommended unless you are sure you only want to play the Regenesis version of MD.
You can use the same method as above to replace your JM client if you have one. Or, you can download the manual patch for the JM client here. Note that even if you download the manual patch it is highly recommended to delete your "userdata" folder and run "full check" after replacing the files.
We are still working through some of the automated processes to get everything working, but it is fully playable now. The main thing you will not be able to do is receive items you purchase from the donation shop. The purchases are logged, and the deliveries will happen tomorrow. The automated process that handles this is not completed, but we know that nobody wants to wait for that. As long as we are logging it.
Fort does not currently work, we know why, and will probably set it up tomorrow-ish.
Elysium also doesn't work currently, but we didn't feel it was a good reason to keep the server closed. We will work more on that afterwards.
We have started cancelling changes that are incorrectly submitted. Unfortunately it is too time-consuming to track you down and find out information like what you want to have changed.
Please note that we cannot change locked gears yet.
If your gears are locked, in-game name is wrong, or you didn't tell us what you want changed in the first place, then we cannot do your change. This will result in a cancelled change, and the bananas refunded to the account that had purchased your change.
Also note, if you bought your change from somebody in-game, and they incorrectly submit info. They will be refunded the bananas. Your in-game deals do not affect who we would refund.
As a handful of you noticed, there was a brief period today where purchasing an item in the shop did not affect your banana balance - you could effectively purchase unlimited items. Sounds scary? Keep reading.
Some of you reported this to us and we fixed it right away, while a few others tried to exploit it. One person in particular exploited it 159 times in a row (~Karina~). As you should all know by now, we log EVERYTHING, so spotting who takes advantage of something like this is trivial. All exploiters have been banned.
Let this be a reminder to you all to report any issues like this immediately or you will certainly be banned. We are not new to this and you will be caught. We have a lot of systems in place watching everything you do, ESPECIALLY anything that remotely involves money or votes. So be responsible.
As some of you know someone claiming to be affiliated with Anonymous, or representing Anonymous in an official capacity claims to be attacking us.
First I would like to address the claim that this person is in any way affiliated with Anonymous. Aside from being Anonymous by the core principles of the group(being, by definition, anonymous), Anonymous in an official capacity doesn't waste their time on attacking private servers.
The person who made this claim has very little technical knowledge, they didn't even change their ip.
So, in response to your "demands" that we unban people and give free bananas. I have banned every account you have ever logged. If you want to prove to me you're not this person you will need to submit a ticket, and we can go from there.
