Unannounced Trunk Add-on Server Shutdown

Post by Lord-Knightmare » May 5th, 2017, 3:49 pm

As the title suggests, I am unable to upload my add-ons to the trunk server anymore. :annoyed:

To continue development of HoI, I upload the WIP scenarios in trunk and my play tester friend downloads it from there. He then plays it and gives me feedback using WhatsApp. He mostly plays and has little to no knowledge on installing add-ons manually.

Can that add-on server be made accessible from the client once more? Or, if the developers have had a logical reason for shutting it down so abruptly, can that reason be stated here for clarification?

Well, I can say that it isn't entirely down. I can still access and download add-ons from here. The site status page does list it as down, so there is apparently some sort of problem going on, though I don't think it being inaccessible is intentional.

The testing instance should be back up now, loonycyborg just restarted it. Hopefully the bug that caused it to go comatose isn’t present in the current build.

It's accessible from the client again. Thank you all for the replies and immediate assistance.
