Hidden Airbase removed from DCX rotation

Apparently the DCX map Hidden Airbase was causing client as well as server crashes, so I've removed it from the DCX rotation.

UPDATE: The 'brit' version of the map was also causing lots of server crashes so I removed it. I also removed all the extra 'day2', 'day3' and 'brit' maps from the rotation.

TPU outage this morning

TPU was down for a few hours this morning, between about 1am and 7am PST. Both the dedicated server software and BFSM crashed. I'm investigating.

TPU Challenges page and first challenge posted

The new TPU Challenges page is up! You can find it in the 'TPU Stuff' section in the left sidebar. There's a direct link below.

The first challenge has also been posted: it's the =kink= Battle of Britain flying challenge. There's a map, rules and a scoreboard where your name will be listed when you master the challenge.

NOTE: the scoreboard is starting out blank, which means that any previous challenge completions have been wiped out. That way everyone starts on an even footing. Good luck!


Sisko's new TPU promo video

Sisko's latest video is now available for viewing. You'll find it in the Files and links section, or you can use the quick link below.

The new video is a promotion for TPU, and it's epic. There's gameplay footage from several different maps, showing plenty of action. The new chessboard on Dark Ryda's Race Track map is also shown.

Warning: this is a long video. Due to upload bandwidth constraints of TPU's Internet provider, it will take a while to download no matter how fast your connection is.

Thanks, Sisko!


TPU/TPUBF2 outage this morning

Both servers were down this morning for about 20 minutes while the power meter was replaced. The outage should have only been for a couple of minutes, but there was a problem with the router that took a few additional minutes to sort out. Sorry for any inconvenience.

TPU stats reset

TPU's stats have been reset for the new year. I kept a copy of the 2011 stats, which you can still see by clicking the '2011' link next to the main 'Statistics' link in the left sidebar. Stats from before 2011 are also still available; click the '2010' link to see them.

Sisko was the king of 2011 by a wide margin. Congratulations! Can anyone unseat him in 2012?

Update: Stats review for 2011

Top points using TPU rating algorithm:
Sisko: 22,426.25 points

Top score (BF1942 score):
Sisko: 285,050

TPU scheduler fixed

It's a new year, so that means I'm busy doing some yearly maintenance. I'm hoping to roll over the stats later today. This morning I went through the laborious task of resetting every event in TPU's BFSM scheduler. This must be done every year or the scheduler stops working entirely. Let me know if you notice any apparent scheduler problems.
