After a lot of work, we have decided that replication of the TC servers will definately not work.

We are taking another aproach, which should have more or less the same impact (i.e. no lag) which involves me spending 2 full days searching through a hundred thousand lines of code and updating it in about 500 places. I aim to get this done within 2 days.

Unfortunately for the next 2 days, there will be quite a lot of lag during peak times, but as long as everything goes okay it could be the last bit of lag and downtime we see in a long time.

Sorry for any inconvenience.

Everyone is quick to criticise, but how many would be prepared to spend 2 days sifting through 100,000 lines of code?

Good luck Ched, hope it pays....:)

If it was my game and I was collecting money from people to play it, then I guess it would be my job. He's not sifting through all that code just because he's a nice guy!

Woot
FINALLY
it took you so long to accept that the real problem of LAG lies in the code itself and not due Hardware(RAM, server, etc)

All the best.

Hardware/RAM would improve it though as it means more data can be processed quicker and easier, on a serious note, nice work ched

fuck sake how many more times will i hear "no more lag after this" then we get tons of lag for some idiotic reason i.e a new update... face it YOU CANT STOP THE LAG!

7 days = $1,000,000 of daily chaining.

14 days = $1,700,000 for daily chaining.


More than that is negotiable.
