Downtime this morning

posted by Peter on Sunday, September the 16th at 10:28 AM


Please excuse us for the downtime that happened this morning, due to a problem with the power-supplies in the datacentre, our server was disconnected from the internet for a few hours. Everything is up and running smoothly again. While the downtime occured, we also decided to update our lighttpd-webserver to the newest version due to a known fastCGI-overflow. Running version 1.4.18 succesfully :)

Sorry for any inconvenience caused,

Linking your in-game and forum accounts!

posted by Peter on Wednesday, September the 5th at 10:06 PM


On the never-ending quest for new cool features, your Management has presented you with yet another possibility on the Las Venturas Playground forums. Today we've got something quite special!

From this moment on, it's possible to link your in-game account to your account on the forums. This will add a column with information under your avatar, showing the number of kills, deaths you've had in-game, just as your online-time. Activating this feature is really simple, go to your profile and click on the link "Player Configuration". You need to enter your in-game username/password, press the magic button and you're done!



Help! It does not accept my username/password!
This is possible, and probably due to a recent improvement in the way we synchronize data across our servers. Go in-game, stay there for about a minute, then logout and within a few minutes you can try again. If it still doesn't work, feel free to ask the LVP Management on IRC for more information or help related to the subject - it's still in beta!

Well, have fun with this awesome and utterly useful feature.

DDOS Attacks

posted by Nakebod on Sunday, September the 2nd at 10:47 PM


Yeah thats right, again.
LVP is under quite heavy attacks during this day, started last night.

This is just an information topic, to let you know what is going on.
The server itself remains stable, but the DDOS makes it unreachable and/or unplayable.

And to finish, our nice player stats from today.


Ok, today I captured some screens during a DDOS.

DDOS starting.

DDOS getting higher.

DDOS "full" busy attacking LVP.

DDOS lowering.

Almost normal, playing is possible at this point with a little bit lag.
