Programming and Security Tip:
I'm a programmer and saw something that might be vulnerable. In the login screen, if a user miskeys their login id and password 3 times, you should lock the account until: A) they answer a security question, or B) a certain time limit expires (like 1 hour). This will stop alot of hack attacks. Also, i'm very familiar with PHP, MySQL, and VB.net, so if you ever think about expanding your game to run with a windows application, kind of like Conquer Online, let me know and we can work together. Thaks Ched and keep up the good work.

^^ Wow DizzyDan that would limit the game down to platform rather than having it based entirely in a web browser. Bad idea.

Well Ched, I knew about this loop hole well over 3 months ago. And ive attempted to make contact with you about it twice. Through Mail and IRC. This did NOT have to happen. Why can't you pay attention?

Your backup system still has many holes. Take for instance the 'loss of conneciton to sql server' error that occured when I tried to buy a palace from the agent shortly after the new housing system when on-line. I didn't get the palace, and the system took my $65 mil. Staff only shrug and say 'there are holes in our records.' One would think that the "backups" could prove this loss. Or, do the backups not include how much is in the bank at any given time? Isn't that important information as well?

-still bitter.

Some of you may have noticed missing items some time after midnight last night, this was due to a minor hacking effort. This loophole has been resolved and all missing items returned. Please file a Bug Report if you are still having issues with items. Any donations that were lost - you can reclaim them by filling in the missing donator form.

Another successful test of our backup system, this makes us sleep easier at night; knowing that your data is completely safe.

Thanks for understanding, these things don't happen often and hopefully we won't have to put up with it again for quite some time.

Are you sure you are not lying? I just finished Tunneling Virus program but i didnt get the item, yes i have posted it in the Item part of the bug section, 15/11/07
12:49 AM You completed the Tunneling Virus, you now have the disk in your items. Go here to start programing another virus. Is not in my Items and i have triple checked. Just wana know if you telling a little lie?

And by turning off the server, well what can i say that was stupid, the "hacker" would still be on the server like a rat, also this morning when it was down, i would say that the "hacker" would have still been on then, might still be on now as none of peoples items are getting given to them and some are still missing, pfft, get it sorted.

If you lost things and they havent been returned yet, file a bug report under items in a new slot... adding name to existing ones will be more confusing for this one.


A friend of mine that i got to play this game a few weeks ago now, found a parachute while walking around the city.

He gave me a phone calll to ask what it was for, when he went back to his items it was gone.

Im going to assume he was the one of the first tis happen to as he had the first bug report on the missing item on page..

His responce was just telling him whats its for nothing else...

Shall i tell him to post another report ?
File a false report and don't be surprised if you are in fed for a few days.

Basic security has no place in TC! BEGONE HEATHEN!
May be wasting your breath here, man.

Aaanyway... nice to know the backups still work. Shame we had to go through that crash and all, though

haah i dont know if i lost anything, i was dead asleep, but thanks for taking care of it and warning us, Ched. at least you warned us, now we can be a bit more careful.

and if the hacker is a member of TC, and is reading this, then he should know he needs to go waste his time some other way, cuz he aint getting that deep into TC =P
