Downtimes: June 24 - July 2nd

We've got another batch of shutdowns coming in late June and early July, so that the machines can be repaired for the newest bug, the ZombieLoad CPU bug.

In general, the Genesis games (Grendel, TEC, TEC-Test) all have reboots scheduled for the absolute middle of the night, so I'll be taking each down the previous evening at midnight and bringing them back up the next morning at 9am.

The SkotOS games have always been more robust about reboots, so we'll let them reboot on their own, though there's some chance for an ~2 hour data loss. In any case, I'll be checking them after the 2-hour window when I can, though Marrach has a middle-of-the-night reboot, so that'll be the next morning.

The UserDB and Web reboots will cause some downtime for the entire site, but again they will hopefully come up cleanly.

    My computer was infected with virus. My son erased most everything trying to remove the virus or malware. Now I cannot log into my characters. It wants me to create a new one. I would like my old ones back if it is possible. Elora and Ambra. My E-mail is I contacted Skotos and they told me to contact the game I play which is of course Marrach. Please let me know if I can keep my old characters. A lot of work went into them both. Thank you for your time.

    Skotos account login credentials are not stored locally (on your pc) so a reformat or switch to a new pc won’t keep you from using your old characters. You should be able to login using your account username and pw that you used before. If you cannot remember your password, you can click the link below “Forgot your password?” at the login screen on and follow the directions there. The server will email you a link to reset it if needed. It’s nothing we can send from our end.
