There was an ongoing issue of servers randomly appearing multiple times in the search results, and some of the history disappearing.
The reason behind all of this was a glitch on a server that caused the data to get corrupt.
You may notice some missing points in the past month for historical data, though most of it should be there now. The rest of the historical data is currently being repopulated from backups and may take a while to complete.
We are also repopulating the search index, so you may notice that ranks are not shown. They will appear again when ranks are regenerated which I will force a regeneration last, after everything else is finished. So please be patient as this may take another 12-24 hours before everything returns to normal, but for the most part everything should be functional now aside the issues mentioned above.
Lastly, I am in the process of rewriting the scanner, which I will use to add support for more games, including Ventrilo and TeamSpeak over the course of the following weeks.
Perhaps some of you have noticed faster page loads recently, as we have been busy optimizing Game-Monitor. One of the main goals is to improve overall speed for visitors outside of North America, and one of the things we did to accomplish this is to start using a CDN.
We are currently working on optimizing server update times, which will effect servers that are not subscribed. Currently the modifications are being tested and benchmarked (so far we are seeing at least a 15% improvement). If you happen to see any servers that are taking an unusual amount of time to update, please report it here, or in the Bug Report forum.
Lastly we are attempting to reduce the size of images and pages delivered to the browser. Most likely you will not notice a considerable improvement due to this, but at Game-Monitor, we enjoy squeezing out every last millisecond.
Please let me know if you have noticed an improvement, or any strange side effects. Also, most of the optimizations are currently being tested on the US1 server, so those accessing the site via US2 will not notice as much of a difference.
I know a lot of you have been waiting for this, and it is finally here!
We have added support for FFOW to Game-Monitor:
If you wish to add your server, make sure it is running at least 1.0.2 (also, the query port should be game+2).
You can find the newest patches for the game here:
Lastly I just want to say how impressed I am with the makers of FFOW and THQ, they really seem to care about their community, and are pleasant to work with.
Please note: Not all FFOW servers are listed here, these are only servers that we managed to find, that replied to queries, and that were added in manually through the 'Add Server' page.
Update: It seems that the new server files have been released, here is the news post about it with links.
They also provide information on it here:
We just completed some bug fixes with ETQW servers. Previous player names were being cutting off by a couple of characters, which should be fixed now.
We also added a custom player template for ETQW, so you can see ping times and clan names now.
New site has been launched! Hope everyone enjoys it.
If you find any bugs, please reply to this post, or come visit us on IRC:
#game-monitor @ irc.gamesurge.net
We will most likely launch the new site tonight (at around 8-10pm EST), unless we find any large bugs. I will also be re skinning the forum shortly after.
If you want to take a peek now at the new site, you can access it here:
Please reply to this thread or go on IRC and tell me if you find any bugs, and I will go through them as soon as possible.
