Title: Restoring Old Characters


Agony_Aunt - July 16, 2014 07:53 PM (GMT)
So, you're an old player who has returned eh? And you are wanting your old characters back?

Well, you're in luck, the characters are not gone, simply archived. Any character not acecssed in over a year is backed up and wiped from the players vault.

Admins can restore.

Please be sure to inform us of:
  • Your GSID (Gamespy ID - what you use to login to multiplayer). If you can remember exactly, then best guess.

It also helps us if you:
[list]
[*]Tell us if you want all old characters restoring or just specific ones
[*]Roughly when was the last time you played your character(s) - at least the year if nothing else.

Ideal variant is post here or in Bugs and Errors forum. You can send me a PM, ill usually deal with it fairly quickly, but ill be having vacation in a few weeks with no chance to access the server and little chance perhaps to access forums.

No idea what races the characters are, so I restored the ones that was archived, log in once before next reset with the ones you want to keep

You had a ton of characters, and I've restored them all, however it's a pain to make sure each doesn't archive again automatically, so you'll have to log in with the ones you want to keep within the next server restart to mark them as active again.

If you miss the window just post here again and I'll unarchive them again (alternately if you remember specific character names of the ones you want I can mark them specifically... just too much work to do with a dozen chars)

Could someone look into restoring my characters for me? :)
  • Gamespy ID: Cristiel
  • Characters To Be Restored: Kelafae and Hekate (I think those were their names?)
  • Last Login: November 2012

If those characters aren't under the Cristiel account, they may be under "Queen Nothing"

Thanks!

Agony_Aunt - October 2, 2014 03:52 AM (GMT)
Ye gods... lots of characters that i found. You have 12 hours from now to login with those you would like to keep. Otherwise they will be archived again.

Swiftbow - October 2, 2014 06:41 AM (GMT)
Thanks! I'm probably going to be shocked at how many I apparently had, it would seem :)

Edit:
Indeed, yes.

Agony_Aunt - October 11, 2014 08:51 PM (GMT)
Both player vaults restored... from around 2012. 4 characters for Radlynn, 2 for SubltleBlade.

You have approx 22 hours to login with the ones you want to keep otherwise they will be archived again.

Any missing? Then you'll need to be more specific about the last time you played them.

Done. You have about 8 hours to log in with those you want to keep.

WhenWizardsWar - October 13, 2014 12:44 PM (GMT)
Im trying to i keep getting booted.

Edit:I was thinking it was an issue with a new ip address or something (not sure if i had a new one) or the fact im logging in from a new keycode and a new laptop instead of the desk top i used to use but thats not it. I made a NEW char on my old account and i got in just fine.

So its my old characters that i cant use.

Agony_Aunt - October 13, 2014 06:21 PM (GMT)

Could you guys check out what happend to my character; Naomi Auroras

Is there any information on her?

Agony_Aunt - November 3, 2014 12:02 PM (GMT)
Restored. You last played her in 2012, which is why it was archived.

All restored from 2011 - you have about 6-7 hours before next reset to log in with the ones you want to keep, otherwise you'll have to poke me again to get them back again.

Graawl you seemed to play later, so i touched that BIC so that it won't get archived.
