PW Crash problems
« on: June 20, 2016, 10:42:05 pm »


               

If a PW crashes, and rolls the player characters back to a earlier instance, what would be the most common reason for the roll back? I am hoping that some who are more familiar with the mechanics of PW running can help figure this out- My PW doesn't have the above issue, while another that I sometimes play on does, and it seems to happen quite frequently.

if rollback is happening, then there is missing automatic character saving mechanism, without that (usually done every 2-5minutes) character will get saved only when logging out of server basically


 


another option is a save character command/item tool but with an automatic saving mechanism this is needless really

Actually, there is no built in BW save code on pw's, so unless the code in the mod has a save mechanism buiit into the mod by its creators/administrators/scriptors, there is no saving other than on PC exit of the mod. It is good practice to build in a save mechanism into pw's and every multiplayer mod I have seen has some sort of mechanism coded to save players at set or random intervals or a pc use tool.
