Thread: LGP server ( linuxgamepublishing.com ) down

  1. #11

    Post Hard disk and backup simultaneous failure

    Since yesterday the LGP website give this message:

    " Due to a hard drive failure which occurred at the same time as our backup system failed, the site is currently down. We expect to have full data recovery within the next few days. "

    I've never seen LGP's server down before, then again I've only ever had to validate my key once for each of the games I bought from them (X2, X3, Sacred, Jets n Guns) and can still play them just fine. I still play the bejesus out of X3: Reunion all the time. Oddly enough if you try to access happypenguin.org you get the same exact message word for word. Are those two sites joined at the hip or is that just a standard automated error message?

    I hope they solve the problem, meanwhile I can't play the game I rented and can't send them an email because the mail server is also down.

    Try the IRC channel. Maybe you can find someone affiliated with the company there

    It's kinda amazing. They run tuxgames, linuxgamespublishing, hp, their mail on 1 PC without a RAID or at least continuous backup? C'mon! I hope it's not also their development machine with thin clients all over the office...

    To be fair, not only did their main server die, but the backup as well. Not really a fun situation.

    And AFAIK, they host HP as a service to the community, so give them some cred.

    I have X3 and X2, and both are working just fine. Start is somewhat slower, I can see that they try to contact the DRM server @LGP (via wireshark) and fail, but given the fact that my keys have been verified, the games work just fine.

    Never the less, LGP should find a way to solve this problem. E.g. use a an external hosting for their DRM servers?

    Try this

    launch the security manager and click on update key

    enter your key again and press OK

    then it will tell you it cant reverify without internet connection

    and it will work (for me at least). Though I didnt rent games. I bought them normally (Sacred and X3)
