Idea on the test date. Lets say, one hour before the singularity battle is to begin, send a game wide message that the "Tranquility server will be down for two hours for the Singularity "Test Battle" to begin. Everyone interested to compete must log on Singularity. Tranquility will be back online when completed." You would get alot more players on that would rather keep playing and who in interested in fleet fights if never been in one.


lol what a gank free for all that would be would love to see this even more than a button however that would be nice to have

To all of you crying about manual labor... where's the fire?

1. Copy directory.
2. Chruker's awesome page, patch from TQ version to current version on the right. (or CCP patch page)
3. Log in.
4. Omg I just performed a vasectomy on Tanis. Shocked

00:03:39 (3 min, 39 sec) to set this up from scratch. If the eve server is down for any reason and you are unable to download the patch on the first try, chill out and try again later.. I know, amazing concept. Happy fragging and debugging. YARRRR!!

I will be the only one in my corp/alliance who would be taking part. I assume more the merrier regardless if individuals may not be able to be organized like the bigger alliances and groups.

Do I make a shortcut with the /server:singularity with the copied exe or with the Tranquility exe?

Well, a shortcut to the TQ exe will open TQ, a shortcut to the SiSi (patched) exe will open SiSi.

I dont mean this in a rude way towards people but I really dont get where all the problems are coming from. Its like a 3 step process and took me about 5 mins while I was high as ****, and I'm no geeky little 1337 hax weirdo kid

    The source of "Lag" as you humans tend to refer to it was caused by a recent firing of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).

    I am sorry, but your numbers (500) are a bit low...

    The problem only begins to start with 500 players in one solarsystem, (and grids needs loading for the rest to jump in) But the pain realy begins at around 750 players on a normal node and arouns 1100 on a reinforced node.

    Thats only my experience, so u might want to test with a bit more players if your test node is as heavy as the ones we play on...

    the problems for gridload popup whe:
    1) you jump or bridge into the system
    2) you jump back to your fleet / the hostiles
    3) you undock in system
    4) you activate modules
    5) module status change occurs.

    You might want to take a little peek at those, combined with theaverage loadtime of players jumping into the system, and the time they stay cloaked

    capacitor readout stays "pritty good during the lagfest", wich is quite strange

    Good luck with the test, i probebly can not help you saterday since were out killing reds...

    Um, I've never tested on Singularity before, so if I log into singularity does my character have all his ships etc. and if the ship is destroyed on singularity, is it gone on TQ as well?

    Thanks in advance

    Very HappyI haven't worked with singularity before but like every other test server for MMO. What happens on the test server stays on the server.

    A little more instruction on what to do with the server log file and so forth would be nice. I'm only on to add my slight weight to the test mass you guys are creating.

    I expect to be erased quickly but in the mean time it looks like fun for those of us who are not skilled enough to qualify for the alliance tournments.

    Looking forward to a ripping good time. Probonnie

    same here. I'm not part of anything but the last tests I participated were fun.
    anyone can come, someone will open up a fleet and you join. just pay attention to the fleet chat.

    just bring your frigate. you won't turn the tides of battle, but that's not neccessary since it's all about producing lag, and that's what everyone can do, even new characters.

    and the promised day came but no mirror at all over the test server..., so much for a mass test... recently activated characters were left out(me and others aswell)... i guess it was too much to ask...

    Will there be another "Copy" from Tranquility before the Test starts?

    mirrors take up to three working days to accomplish and a list of tests were planned when it was made and nothing you do there in the helping will affect real chars anyway
    your new chars will appear as soon as the new mirror happens
    and btw it is entirely possible to have both the singularity and tranquility server clients open at the same time
    your REAL chars need never be unable to protect themself...ITS A TEST SERVER teeheehee enjoy

    So? What are the results of the tests? Tanis promised us some info on the test results, but we have none except this.

    Actually I don't understand why you promise things you don't do, and you don't even explain why you don't.

    Will there be a mirror before the April 17th test? This is critical for my (20M SP) and many others participation. It is not just a three week character thing. I declined to take part in April 3rd because the mirror was too old.

    while your at it, giving all test server characters with free clone spots an empty clone in FD- would also ease test server participation.

    Cheers!

    I will see about the possibility/feasibility of getting a new mirror onto Sisi.

    Can't promise anything, but I'll do what I can.

    im sorry but what?

    As announced in my recent Dev Blog, we are moving into the next phase of the Mass-Testing project. We will now be holding tests on weekends and directly sending invites to medium and large alliances. These tests will help us assess how well the new expansion performs and thus help us identify any areas that need to be cleaned up to prevent lag from getting out to TQ.

    What about Dominion and what is going on right now, are you realy telling us that US the players that have to deAL with this incredible lag on a daily basis since dominion was introduced.

    Are you saying that we have to wait untill may for any form of a fix?

    Please be honest with your player base and let us know the paying customers.

    You mean this quote from a February 10th dev blog?

    Information and transparency

    One thing that we feel has been a shortcoming in our previous mass-testing exercises thus far is the lack of reports and information being relayed to you, the players of EVE. To remedy this, we will begin publishing the results of each test. Over time, we will add to what is being reported and, hopefully, even get a sub-site on eveonline.com to host the results from all these tests so that anyone can view results from recent tests, as well as historical results.

    What is the status of the initiative described above?

    I don't understand what is the problem in telling the test results to the playerbase.

    Maybe the problem is that things are not going well, and nobody wants to tell us this.

    CCP didn't ever fix the mess that came with Dominion, and they already shifted the focus on the next expansion.
    The thing I don't really understand is what was wrong with apocrypha and why you had to mess with it.
