It’s never simple…

Soo, a little update.

GP3Ds continue to test, and I have to say that we’re very impressed with the quality of the bug reports we’re getting, and the hours of testing the GP3Ds are putting in. It’s almost like they’re addicted to pain or something…

The good news is that we continue to close in on the bugs, in particular at least one laggy GP3D’s lag problems, which they solved themselves by adjusting a router setting. Yes, their router had a setting which was making There lag out. We kid you not. So far, the evidence has been strong on this, but we’re going to to a leetle more analysis before we charge ahead.

The bad news is that it looks like we’ve got some issues with nametag color restoration we have to resolve, as well as making sure we understand the problems our GP3Ds are having .

We know you all are excited and anxious to get in-world, but we’d much rather fix these problems (especially those involving data, like nametag colors) now, with a few GPs, instead of later, with hundreds or thousands of members.

Finally, we have had one very unfortunate event. A Cloud-Based malfunction in the teleport system caused a teleport to, well, uh, not complete as we expected, and, well, words can’t describe the results (the content below may be shocking):

They, of course, will be like that forever. There’s nothing we can do. Pity they weren’t turned the other way so they could get a nice view of the lake.

*** UPDATE ***

The router setting which needed to be turned off in that particular instance is “IP Flood Detection”. We’ve found it on a “Motorola Surf Board”, which is stock for some Cable Providers (Comcast, etc).

Obviously, you shouldn’t do this unless you know exactly what you’re doing. Adjust at your own risk. Your Mileage May Vary. Not a Toy. Do not use near open fire or flame. Do not Eat.

    Just wondering when everything thing gets up and running is There Fun Times (the web page) going to put to use again. Just asking because its been up ever since There closed in March 2010. Well maybe this question was asked already.

    • #9 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.06 - 6:04 pm

      At least at first, that will likely depend on who has spare time they’re willing to invest — I seem to recall that Mackie used to have a lot to do with TFT, and she’s back as a part-timer (presumably to expand hours once there’s enough cash flow to allow it).

      Test buggy race. Went pretty good. Shame I can’t drive a there buggy all that well! Still it kept score and tracked fastest laps and things like that. Lap times seemed to work as well.

      • #12 by spot751 on 2011.09.06 - 6:01 pm

        Ya did well, buggies have minds of their own i think sometimes… they definitely don’t always do what you want them to, but then it would not be as much fun if they did…

      • #13 by Stamplicker on 2011.09.06 - 7:35 pm

    Well this past week I’ve been trying to keep myself uber busy to pass the time so I don’t go nuts waiting for the world to poen. OK…I’m running out of things to do! I feel like that lady in that old commercial for a Mervyn’s sale with my face pressed against the wall chanting “Open open open”

  12. #30 by Camel on 2011.09.06 - 10:13 am

    Regarding the IP flood issue: there was a similar issue in Minecraft, and the solution they ended up going with was to batch up application messages in to larger chunks of data, and call send() less frequently. In that case, it made sense because there was a logical point at which to call send(), but that might not be trivial to do in There – just a though.

  13. #31 by Stephen Mol on 2011.09.06 - 7:30 am

    Do you plan to give the web site a new look with new updates?

    • #32 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.06 - 1:10 pm

      I’m sure there’ll be significant updates before new avatars can join — they’ll need to redirect the download links, reenable the new-avatar creation process, restore some of the “help” pages, etc. For those of us with reclaimed avatars, much of that can wait until we’re in world; it’s only needed for people joining new.

  14. #33 by Gabi on 2011.09.05 - 1:47 pm

    Hi,

    Not sure how else to report this but I fear my account was hacked (and I’m not even in-world yet!). I received an email in regards to an unsuccessful login attempt (which immediately made me suspicious). Based on the IP address the failed attempt happened somewhere in NYC. I immediately went to login to my ThereIM and it keeps telling me I’m already logged in elsewhere. I keep attempting to login and it keeps logging me out. I went ahead and changed my password but I thought I should report this to someone.

    Thanks!

    Gabi

  15. #34 by ForTehLulz on 2011.09.05 - 12:44 pm

    I just saw this on a very old post of yours on this blog Michael. It shows someone asking about There being made for PS3 or Xbox in the future and you said that There would have to be atleast DX9. Could you possibly think about this in the future? Obviously far from now as the world isn’t out yet-but this could be a popular request in the far future!
    Just a thought..

    Also, the video’s are showing There running very smoothly and the sounds are exactly like before too! Nearly THERE! 😀

    Very strange feeling watching those videos and hearing the There sounds once again. I just can’t wait!!!

  23. #44 by Francis_7 on 2011.09.04 - 3:02 pm

    Today I was fiddling with layouts, loading, saving, and setting out a track and such. Overall it all worked form my point of view just as expected. After saving a track and shooting this video I reloaded the buggy track and had no problem setting it back for buggies to race around again. Also tried out come boating through some gates. Worked just as it did before There.com closed with times of laps not being recorded. Still fun though. Not sure why this video is only avalible at 480. I submited it as 720i.

    • #45 by Basya on 2011.09.05 - 1:54 am

      Hi Francis! Adore your vids! But do you mean to say that while flying a hboat in a track, you actually had time laps recording? If so, maybe –let’s hope– that this will remain so!
      Cya in There!
      –Basya

      • #46 by Francis_7 on 2011.09.05 - 4:25 pm

        No, sorry if you read it that way, lap times are not reocrded on boats. I had to test it though, you never know. Packs abd buggies and boats all seem to work fine. Have not tried fluterpacks or bikes or boards on a track yet though.

      • #47 by HoverboatPilot on 2011.09.06 - 7:10 pm

        Basya, remember that event I used to host called Hoverboat Time Trials? The track never records your times to display on the top track times, but It will show you your time as you pass through the gate for a few seconds after finishing a lap like this one that B_A_B_S posted on FB http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/304421_268952716467910_100000595512872_1051021_930553150_n.jpg 😀

        Save those videos. When the land rush starts, well, you just know how “contaminated” it will look.
        Michael, what’s it gonna take to ban all building, inside a circle, just outside the Spa’s ?

        I couldn’t agree more, when I saw those shot’s it was like fresh, pristine playground that I remembered when first in, before all the paz’s and trash showed up there. Of course it was still fun dropping Buggy’s from a jet pack/boat on friends as they passed by looking for you =)

    I agree, I’m not particularly attached to my “Lt. Brown” (or was it “Tan”) name tag color. The only use I recall for it was team forming for There Games, which I pretty much avoided after one experience of trying to participate (through the lag of hundreds of avatars in one place) and host an event (PITA for someone with limited in-world time).

  37. #84 by VoniLei on 2011.09.03 - 7:00 am

    I do hope the nametag colour patch is restored by whoever it was that made it. Being colour blind, I had a very hard time picking out the different colours…I didn’t even know what colour I was until somebody told me.

    • #85 by Basya on 2011.09.03 - 5:21 pm

      I think the patch you are thinking of was made by Tabeltronix (BBoy). In fact I still have that folder, among others, backed up and intend on copying it back into my There folders when we are back in world.

      • #86 by VoniLei on 2011.09.04 - 5:39 am

        Thank you, Basya! I may have to hit you up for that…I lost all my old There files, I think…they were on an old computer that died. I might still have them on the HD, which I could access by slaving it to my current laptop…not sure tho. I DO know that all my hoverboard are tracks are saved tho…you can bet I’ll be retrieving those! LOL

    last night i had a real bad nightmare that made me wake up with a cold sweat.i dreamt i woke up with a orange nametag instead of an olive one.

    Hey, GP’s ~ Congrats!
    Now, would one of you please go by Captain’s Island off Northern Aurora and see if there are Ocean and Gull sounds at that island group? For several years, from their inception, the ocean and gull sounds came out from Aurora to within 200yds. of the islands, but never on the islands. There’s reply always was they didnt know how to fix it. However, one of my female tenants who is degreed in comp. programming said the problem was just a sub-program and very easily repaired. Thanks!
    CpnBob

    • #97 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.05 - 10:25 am

      Ocean and gull sounds are an environment setting; any house, neighborhood (or lot), and even the newest version PAZ (I don’t recall if this retrofitted to older PAZ) allow the owner to set the environment. Whoever owned the neighborhoods bound to those islands would have been in control of setting their environment (though always subject to override by any lots inside the ‘hood). IOW, it’s not something There could “fix”, it’s a basic property of the place you were in. The 200 m distance might have been the limit of the “Aurora” environment, that’s about the right distance to switch from the island server to the ocean (which has all environments turned off — one of the ways the entire “open ocean” can run on a single server).

  48. #101 by dakotaman on 2011.09.02 - 8:19 pm

    Having new nametag colors might not be such a BAD thing. Although I kinda like my LT Blue tag, if they were shuffled, it could be a chance for everyone to ‘start anew’.

    Keep up the good work!!

    • #102 by yankeeinthesouth on 2011.09.03 - 2:47 am

      At the moment my name tag is green, its suppose to be olive. I really dont mind the color change but green???? lol

    • #103 by Kattwomann on 2011.09.03 - 6:15 am

      I agree! I always thought Katt should have a “peach” nametag anyway! Hehe wink wink nudge nudge

      My other avy needs purple, let’s roll the dice!

    • #104 by Basya on 2011.09.03 - 5:14 pm

      On the contrary, I do want my PINK nametag back!! I’ve always adored being a glorious, beautiful, gorgeous PINK!!! I’ve even made PINK Team stuff — uniforms including tops, pants and skirts! I don’t want to have to give that all up!

      GO PINK!!! PINK!! PINK!!! YEA, PINK!!!!! 🙂

    Some info left out of the update after “do not eat”:

    Little disappointed about the eating part. I thought cable modems made tasty snacks. Oh well.

    I vote all us have one color now, sort of a start over… We legacy avies have one color, rest of the There world gets the new colors. What ya say?

  61. #118 by LeeLee on 2011.09.02 - 11:20 am

    Question! Are we gonna to able to choose the color tags we like? Or… Suggestion: How about buying a second chance color tag in Therebuck or/and cash once? Because there are lots of people wants to change. You could make them (and me) really happy if you let them choose what color they like. Just once. And if you do… then they will look up to you big time! Bigger than Bill Gates. You know, big real star! 😛

  66. #124 by Skyefire on 2011.09.02 - 10:33 am

    Won’t every dev account ever have to be restored so their stuff can be tied to their profile?

    Or at least restored whenever people reclaim avatars that have items created by them?

    • #125 by Michael Wilson on 2011.09.02 - 10:36 am

      No.

    • #126 by DJRae on 2011.09.05 - 7:50 am

      oh i wondered about the dev stuff too considering how many i’ve already seen re-claim their avs, including myself … would have been very nice to get thet stuff we designed back on our av accts

      • #127 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.06 - 1:05 pm

        As I understand it, stuff you designed will be available to put in auctions etc. as soon as auctions are open. Stuff owned by one avie that was designed by another, by contrast, doesn’t require restoring the creator’s account to restore the objects — once they’ve been through the original approval and sold/given, they’re independent of the original creator.

      • #128 by Skyefire on 2011.09.06 - 7:43 pm

        DJ, we are going to get our dev stuff back but they have to link our new doids to our old ones for it or something.

        Image, that makes perfect sense, dunno why I didn’t see that before. It’d been bothering me for a while, which was why I asked, but I think you are right.

    • #134 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.03 - 7:01 am

      With good reason — even in emergency conditions, the transporter is safer than driving at 20th century automobile. Heck, I had trouble driving across Caldera in a buggy without flipping half a dozen times (even the smooth looking parts aren’t all that smooth), but I teleported thousands of times without mishap.

      McCoy was just phobic (a phobia is an IRRATIONAL fear).

  84. #156 by KingSeth on 2011.09.02 - 5:12 am

    I 100% stand with the choice your making MW. I think most of us would rather return to There at 100% ready then rush the process, and have us playing There with all the bugs, and lag. There deserves perfection, and im glad to see its going to get treated with perfection. Thanks for the hard work as always MW,Staff, and the GP’s.

  85. #157 by VoniLei on 2011.09.02 - 5:03 am

Better to fix the issues now than for everyone to be getting in, happy as a whistle and bam back to the basics all over and yall flooded with tons of HELP ME’s lol. Also.. has anyone noticed what the most popular last name on FACEBOOK is? If you guessed THERE you are correct. From Joe Ben THERE, to Tina N THERE. Wonder what them folks are thinking about this rapid growth of one family :O Keep up the great work all the GP’s, and look forward to seeing the progress you are making happen. if anybody is looking for an active group to connect with other THEREian’s check out “THERE.com on FACEBOOK” group. have a great one everyone, and until we see paintgun to paintgun, later… Sniperbait

    Yes, please, fix the bugs while they’re easier to trace. And do, please, consider publishing the router setup changes that are required, since I daresay most of us use a router these days (a basic wired router fast enough to do justice to a cable modem connection and streaming on up to four computers is only about $40).

I was actually wondering the same if it had to do with our own pc’s and not There itself? Odd on Wednesday my avie ran smoothly for the most part and yesterday it had a mind of its own. I was running back and forth yesterday between There and real life… hoping today will go a little more easier to focus.

    It’s great news to learn that the GP3D’s are helping Team Phoenix. Thank You GP3D’s! Keep up the good reporting. Nice way to help the team get things done.

    Mr. Wilson,

    I’ve been asked to share some UV templates that I made, via stylemaker, for some members who would like to get started creating for THERE.
    Not everyone has an old version of Stylemaker and/or Previewer and the TOS is pretty clear about rights and distribution of the software, etc so I know not to share the developer program files.

    Would it be ok for us to share things like the UV Map Templates that we created using the Developer programs?

        I run WWTS… (World Wide Technical Support) computer remote support service, I make around $50 an hour… I want to help with this free of charge, for the love of THERE… and I am Selfish?

      • #192 by SenorPablo on 2011.09.02 - 9:29 pm

        LOL, spot runs a company and can’t even spell.

      • #193 by spot751 on 2011.09.02 - 11:39 pm

        @ SenorPablo, what? You jealous I didn’t have to do all that school stuff to get where I am? Can you think of something better than my spelling to pick on? Or is that the best you can do? Pick on someone’s spelling? That’s just sad.

      • #194 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 12:09 am

        @ SenorPablo ok to tell you the truth, yes I have struggled with dyslexia all my life and have had to work hard in English skills. Spelling was something that has held be back all my life, but computers, I understand a lot better than English, I know how a computer works, I know everything from the bios to the registry to program files to your stranded files. How it is all put together so you can see what you do on your screen. Everyone has strong points and there weak points, I really think you should look at your own weak points before pointing out others, no one in this world is perfect.

      • #195 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 4:35 am

        Just have to add one last thing to this….
        Steve Jobs: Founder of Apple Computers, CED of Apple and Pixar… problems with dyslexia!
        Walt Disney: American film producer, director, screenwriter, voice actor, and animator. One of the most well-known motion picture producers in the world… problems with dyslexia!
        Thomas Alva Edison: was an inventor and businessman who developed many important devices. Edison is considered one of the most prolific inventors… problems with dyslexia!
        Nelson Aldrich Rockefeller: an American politician, was Governor of New York and the 41st Vice President of the United States… problems with dyslexia!
        Richard Branson: one of the most richest, successful businessmen in the world… problems with dyslexia!

        Spelling has nothing to do with how intelligent you are, or what sort of person you are, nor does it have any effect on the goals you can reach

      Those who beg to be a tester get placed to the back of the line. We all would like to help test the new There. We just got to have patience. I know that it’s not easy, but There will be open sooner than later.

      I have always preached that word patience in real life to family members and it’s coming back to haunt me now as a few GPs who tested ThereIM with me test the World. There will be available for all of us soon though.

      • #197 by Shivaki on 2011.09.02 - 4:09 am

        I mean, it will be available for all of us soon who are 18+, of course. I wonder if those who are under age try to sneak in get turned to stone.

    • #198 by MadhatterMemphis on 2011.09.02 - 4:42 am

      im not sure but id think the same rules apply to testing the 3d world as when they were doing the testing of the IM.ask to be first and your’e sure to be last lol.you might possibly end up at the back of the mob.lol we are still a mob right?

      • #199 by Melody_Chase on 2011.09.02 - 1:16 pm

        Of course…once a mob always a mob 🙂

      • #200 by spot751 on 2011.09.02 - 3:53 pm

        Mob? i put it down to being a Thererian… once a Thererian always a Thererian… as a Thererian you would cut off your left tes… i mean Arm, to go home…

      • #201 by ImageMaker on 2011.09.03 - 6:53 am

        No, no, no!!! I need both hands to drive a buggy or fly a board… :O

      • #202 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 7:07 pm

        prosthetic will work just as well, where there’s a will there’s a way

      • #203 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 7:12 pm

        Look at Aron Ralston, An inspiration to all that have lost limbs, he had to cut his own arm off to free him self in a canyon accident, still out there doing everything he loves, nothing is holding him back.
        But yes I would not really like to loos an arm, I have 2 kids so the first thought would be better LOL

      • #204 by Melody_Chase on 2011.09.05 - 7:53 am

        @ spot you’re obviously not reading the blogs otherwise you wouldn’t have missed the “mob” thing. Oh well.

      • #205 by spot751 on 2011.09.05 - 4:21 pm

        yes missed that one 😦 must do more back reading… “I feel like a twat now”

    • #206 by Mark Behncke (Cowbellwalken) on 2011.09.02 - 5:17 am

      I heard MW talking about needing a developer for “The Back of the Line.”

      You can be the first (not rly) to test out the back of the line and tell us if there are any bugs.

      • #207 by xSnoopy on 2011.09.02 - 9:40 am

        Mark,
        He already gave that job to me!! 🙂
        I have spent more time than anyone else at, the end of the line, starting a new line, back of the mob and Out of the mob. So, I should get it by default!
        I am so NOT complaining!! I was one of the early GP’s on ThereIM.
        I am jealous and envious but happy for all of them who have the chance to help There take the next step!
        GP, xSnoopy

    • #208 by Jonathan on 2011.09.02 - 6:16 am

      Back of the line, for you.

    • #209 by IMAKOS on 2011.09.02 - 6:48 am

      If you read some of MW posts you would know, asking / demanding to be a GP is a no no, you will be put in the back of the line.

      • #210 by spot751 on 2011.09.02 - 4:01 pm

        , Front of the line, back of the line, when it opens it will be open, and all can have fun… being a GP could be fun for people that like to look for problems… in the end the real fun will start when There is open to the public… by asking I am simply letting MW know I am available free of charge to help in any way I can to get this all up and running…

    • #211 by spot751 on 2011.09.02 - 4:23 pm

      Over all… I really think the fun will be when THERE is re open to the public and things can get back to the way they were, I would like to help achieve this in any way I can… guarding the back of the line LOL so be it, someone has to sit back there and make shore ya all behaving your self’s, from the back of the line, I can see you all -.-

      • #212 by IMAKOS on 2011.09.03 - 7:24 am

        I’m Sorry but you have a ” Spot ” on your Nametag 😛

      • #213 by ForTehLulz on 2011.09.03 - 12:48 pm

        I have a feeling your a minor. Am I the only one that thinks this? Lets have a MINOR literacy lesson also!
        Which is the grammatically correct sentence?

        Over all… I really think the fun will be when THERE is re open to the public and things can get back to the way they were, I would like to help achieve this in any way I can… guarding the back of the line LOL so be it, someone has to sit back there and make shore ya all behaving your self’s, from the back of the line, I can see you all -.-

        or

        Overall, I really think the fun will be when There has reopened to the public and things get back to the way they were. I would like to help to achieve this in any way I can, in my case-guarding the back of the line! Someone has to sit back there and make SURE (emphasis on the spelling of “sure”) YOU (same for the spelling of “you”) all are behaving yourselves, at the back of the line, I can see you all.

        My student, take your pick.

        ” I have a feeling your a minor. Am I the only one that thinks this? Lets have a MINOR literacy lesson also!

        Leave it to someone who uses ‘your’ when they should have used “you’re” to be a grammar snob. They always manage to make themselves look stupid. Duuurrrrrrrrrrrrr

      • #215 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 6:55 pm

        LOL, no i am 37 years old, 2 kids, 11 and 14…
        I only wish I could be young again, I think you need to look at the post I put up the first time my spelling was picked on….
        From #29 on this page for now.

      • #216 by spot751 on 2011.09.03 - 8:19 pm

        As I said there, spelling and grammar may not me a strong point, I am dyslexic it’s a condition many have got in this world, would you pick on someone what has cerebral palsy? They don’t have very good motor control, there balance and posture is put out, they may fall just doing something as simple as walking… would you pick on them? Make fun of them? The other thing is I am from Australia mate and we put things a little different then some, so take that in to consideration as well.

      • #217 by spot751 on 2011.09.04 - 1:18 am

        Last of all, besides being dyslexic, last time I looked I was typing in a blog… I didn’t think I would have to dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s like it was some legal documentation. YA! understood what I was saying, that’s all that mattered…
        @ MrScrooge, thank you for the support, but we don’t need to downgrade anyone, that would sink us to there level, maybe they have a problem as well, where they need to put down others to feel self worth, to make them feel better about them self’s? Who knows, I don’t know them so I will not judge

      • #218 by dalejr388 on 2011.09.05 - 6:08 pm

        Ok stop picking on Spot no one is perfect we all make mistakes when typing. I know I do all the time so what’s the big deal get over it. Find something better to do with you time then point out others flaws.

    • #219 by WhoopCDaisy on 2011.09.06 - 11:17 am

      I don’t know why everyone has been so uptight towards you for your original comment Spot. I can understand the fact that you like to test out computer systems and whatnot and therefore are simply letting MW know that you are available. I for one wouldn’t want to be one of the beta testers or GP’s. I’ll wait for whenever it opens and if there are any problems I will leave it up to the game developers or helpers or whomever to fix it. I just simply want to have fun!!

        Seeing members, paz, funzones, events, vehicles, signs, leaderboards props and more, makes it seem more of a possibility than hope alone can do.
