@  Michiyo : (21 April 2017 - 12:23 PM) It seems that Hotmail has blocked the company that hosts my server from sending emails to hotmail addresses. And refuse to remove my IP from their block list. Until they do no emails will be delivered to hotmail users.
@  Remaugen : (23 March 2017 - 10:09 PM) So say's you!

@  Michiyo : (19 November 2016 - 11:24 AM) The Lottery error was caused by a new default value in an upgrade to MySQL, and has been fixed.
@  Remaugen : (19 November 2016 - 12:00 AM) "Contact Community Administrator" isn't working either,
@  Remaugen : (18 November 2016 - 11:55 PM) That must be it!
@  AmpGuile : (18 November 2016 - 04:12 AM) It knows you've won too much and is fighting back.
@  Remaugen : (17 November 2016 - 10:12 PM) It say's "If you are seeing this page, it means there was a problem communicating with our database. Sometimes this error is temporary and will go away when you refresh the page. Sometimes the error will need to be fixed by an administrator before the site will become accessible again."
@  Remaugen : (17 November 2016 - 10:11 PM) OR "There appears to be an error with the database" is the other screen
@  Remaugen : (17 November 2016 - 10:11 PM) I can't buy Lottery Tickets, when I click on "1 Click Buy" I get an "Unexpected Database Error"
@  Angel Phoenix77 : (11 November 2016 - 12:54 PM) I wantto thank Michiyo, for helping me. You are awesome :)

Toggle %s Password Hashing Changed.

Posted By:  Michiyo @ 19 October 2016 - 10:54 AM

Hello all, for the longest IPB (Invision Power Board) has used a pretty insecure hashing algo for passwords.  It was basically md5(md5($salt) . md5($password)) where salt was an unique 5 character string for each user. This is bad.


Today, I changed the core user password storage to a much more secure method of password hashing, for most things everything will be fine, on your first login the system will check your old password, silently updating to the new format.  Some things may NOT. (Currently the XMPP chat is trying to auth with the old system, An upgrade is planned to replace that functionality asap.)  If you are unable to get back into your forum account please send an email to accountrecovery@cohrevival.com with as much information about the account (other than the password, DO NOT SEND ME YOUR PASSWORD) and I'll see what I can do.  If you notice any other issues please post about it in the discussion forum topic: https://cohrevival.c...hashing-changed

Toggle %s New Name, And Changes To Zones!

Posted By:  Roderick @ 31 March 2016 - 10:34 PM
Big announcement today!

We've decided that, rather than making a 100% identical port of City of Heroes and then expanding from there, we're going to be making some tweaks and deviations from day one. Think of it as APR (though we'll be updating that name; more on that later) taking place in one of Portal Corp's many alternate universes, this one almost identical to the Prime Earth that we're used to.

A little history on our decision making process. You may remember this, from a post I made earlier:

For example, one of our more recent discussions was about the warehouse district in the southwest corner of Atlas Park. The buildings are poorly constructed, and if ported directly into APR as-is, they'd cause performance issues, so she's got to go through and rebuild them. Thing is, there's no way to really make a useful or interesting post out of it.

Let's just say that those warehouses are so frustrating that, in a moment of silliness, Cailyn deleted them and replaced them with a giant Shivan meteor.

This led to a bit of discussion, and we came up with a Marvel-style "What If?" scenario: What If The Shivan Attack Had Hit Atlas Park Instead?

After a bit of digging, we discovered that Echo: Galaxy City doesn't have any assets that are quite as brutal as Atlas Park's, and that cemented the decision to mix things up.

At launch, all instances of Atlas Park will be removed. The Lore will be updated to state that Atlas Park was the target of the Shivan Attacks, and the tutorial dialog will be tweaked to reflect this. It makes sense, after all: Atlas Park was a much bigger population center; why would the Battalion send the Shivans to attack the relatively low-population Galaxy City?

The new starting zone will be a revamped Galaxy City, which will basically be the same, but we'll be adding a copy of City Hall to the zone, and updating the low-level missions appropriately for the new zone.

All instanced versions of Atlas Park, such as the ones in the Ouroboros introduction, the Lord Recluse Strike Force, or the Usurper badge mission, will get all-new maps of Galaxy City, modified as appropriate for their respective missions and Task Forces!

By now, you're probably all thinking the same thing that we did: "If we're destroying Atlas Park, and completely removing it, how can we still call ourselves Atlas Park Revival?" Well, we realized that, by adding Galaxy City back, we're literally doing everything but Atlas Park.

And so our new name was coined. Welcome, everyone, to Everything But Atlas Park Revival, or EBAPR for short!

Enjoy the holiday today, and we hope to bring you more new and exciting news Soon™!

Every now and then, Cailyn sends me images to show the most recent thing she's been working on. Usually, these aren't finished pieces, so they never get shared anywhere. But we've had a dearth of updates lately, so I've snuck one out to show you all!

I doubt that this will be an issue here, but Star Wars spoilers WILL be deleted. Repeat offenders may see their posting privileges revoked. This is your only warning.

Toggle %s Xmpp Chat Backend, And Paragon Chat Support

Posted By:  Michiyo @ 24 September 2015 - 11:02 AM

Heya all, a few days ago I setup the chat backend for Revival, This is actually the 2nd setup, the first one was IRC, which was great as it's a very simple protocol, but wouldn't work with local chat, also user authentication was kinda kludgy.  I switched us over to XMPP, which also means you can connect the Paragon Chat client to our XMPP server if for whatever reason you don't want to connect to the official server.  You can connect by setting the XMPP Login to ForumUsername@chat.cohrevival.com and using your forum password, or if using our webchat, just enter your Forum Username, and password there.  Feel free to join the AtlasParkRevival channel on the conference.chat.cohrevival.com conference!


I would like to add, that we will NOT be adding APR/Paragon Chat cross game play, this is strictly so that people can use our XMPP service to hang out in Paragon City for now.
