This server has now been permanently shut down (effectively replaced by b.64.simutrans.entropy.me.uk).

Previous savegames can be found here, listed by the date when the server was shut down:

Wrong command to start it after a crash, I have some scripts to take care of this so shouldn't happen again.

This log should cover the period where this crash occurred. No timestamping in the logs so hard to tell. I'll look into adding something to my logging solution which can insert timestamps and automatically log the times of crashes/restarts of the server.

du you have a savegame of that game? it would be much more convenient to have logs with '-debug 3'.

Unfortunately the "in-progress" savegame would've been overwritten when I accidentally started the server with the original save specified. The current/original saves are here though:

http://entropy.me.uk/simutrans/server-network.sve
http://entropy.me.uk/simutrans/network_64.sve

Debug 3 produces a lot of logging output to keep - I will try it and see how big the log file grows though.


Edit:

I'm going to be updating the server to revision 4184 later today, I will make a backup of the current savegame state available for people as has become the convention.


Edit #2:

FYI I will be upgrading the server this evening and starting a fresh map. I'll post a link to the savegame for the old map in case anyone wants to keep it.


Edit:

I will be restarting the map with a new game version this weekend, old save will be posted here as usual.


Edit:

Map has been restarted, see first post for details.


Edit:

Server restarted with new stable version.

Hi, the server is running well it just seems to have vanished from the server listing. If you type the name (64.simutrans.entropy.me.uk) into the box manually it should connect.

Well I know the server is up, I wanted to check if electroduck could reach it :)

I have just logged into the server myself (really nicely developed map there! I may need to restart the map soon as there's little left to do) so it's definitely running.

For this one you shouldn't need to as it uses the default port. Can you run simutrans with verbose logging (the command line parameter -debug 3) and then try to join the game and after that post the log file?


Edit: Looks like the server crashed about 4am last night.

however I was disappointed to see some problems:

first it would not let me build roads or tracks. then it got real choppy, gave me the Rainbow Wheel of Doom, and then... completely disconnected!

Last time I tried using the Mac version I got similar issues, I tend to play the Windows one in VMWare. Needs some more debugging I think.

I've restarted the map, since the server was crashing every few hours with that old map.

Dwachs, log file is linked below which should cover the crashing period. Also you can download the save game from here:

http://entropy.me.uk/simutrans/networksavegames/sim64/sim64_r4303_18th_March_2011.sve

http://entropy.me.uk/simutrans/sim64.log

(I can't see much in the log to indicate why it was crashing myself...)


Edit: Updated game version and a brand new (bigger) map.

You should compile with server savegame 110.7, otherwise all stuff will be lost during joining of a client like the railgates. I submitted a such commit.

When server's servgame is too low (i.e. not saving all stuff during the game) using such stuff will desync the fast or cause undesired behaviour. Best example would be the railgates, which will exclude player only until the next player join.

The downside is, that whenever something is done in the svegame version, manual saving with a lower number is needed to transfer this game to the next nightly. But since a release is planned shortly, I think the savegame content is save for the while.

Oh I don't think it will be a problem for the pak64 server, since it's running the last stable version of pak64. When the next stable is released I'll update all my servers to run that.

Will the new listings server patch go into the next release?

I may have found a bug.  Simutrans reports that I am running the same version of simutrans and the same version of pak64 as this server is, and then when I push the "compare pak" button... claims the paks are different. ???

Before reporting this as a bug I'd like to make absolutely sure I have the exact same pak version. Please verify where I can download the exact pak being currently used on this server.

neroden - it's the official release version from the download thread, 111.0 game binary (r4911) and pak64 111.0 (r609M).

I've restarted with a new map now, and turned on the pause while not connected feature. Will see how much fun it is.

this seems to happen when the maps are heavily developed. we have WAY too many vehicles here, that may be compounding the problem.

I've restarted the server with a fresh map, and upgraded it to 111.1 (with the same pak64 version). It's really cool how well-developed these maps get. As ever you can download the previous saves from:

You better fix it, since its near unplayabble :/

Please consider that the network functionality is still new, relatively speaking. Further consider that Simutrans is all-volunteer.

Do you think coders are not working on the network code? They are.

Please consider using different language and having different expectations.

If it helps, I realized that desyncs happens more often when placing signs and buying convois at depot...

This latest version seems less stable than the last stable release for network play. Having to restart the server more often.

I've had at least one unexplained crash (no logfile, sorry) with this particular combination of old pakset + new executable, but none with new pakset + new executable. Perhaps it would be more stable to use the new pakset with the new executable? All of the maps are compatible with pak64 111.1.

Don't know what changes if any have been made to the netgaming code since 110.0.1 (when desyncs and lag were almost nonexistent even on developed maps), but 111.0 and 111. 1 have been less stable, had more desyncs and lag, and required significantly more cpu time online.

This is surprising, as I am not aware of a change that could have a major impact on performance.

I am also highly interested in getting more precise reports on server crashes: What are players doing in order to make the server crash? What is your experience?

Down again. My internet went down for a few minutes and when I returned the server was gone. There was another client online at the time.

Timothy, the 111.0 pak 64 is what you are running, r609. 111.1 comes with a new stable, r743 (Though in the splash screen still labeled 111.0)

Dwachs:

I have never seen a crash on the server in the past few days Timothy's been running 111.1. By instability in the past, I am talking a little more about not staying connected and responsive than crashes. With this combination of old pakset and new executable, I have had two random single-player crashes when away from the game and working in another window. One happened right on the front splash screen, the other on the desync message.

About performance-- I did a little test myself to benchmark the change in performance between 110.0.1 and 111.0. I used an old pak 64 netgame map as a benchmark (512 x 512, 7 million citizens, 2000 convoys) and measured average cpu use for a few minutes with resource monitor at a particular busy spot in the game with the minimap open and the game at full screen. 110-0-1 used 24% of one core for this map, while 111.0 used 34% of one core. That's a 42% increase in cpu utilization! This increase may be negatively affecting netgame connection stability (increased desyncs and lag).

I will keep you informed if I can find some correlations between player activity and crashes or desyncs.

111.1 should consume much less CPU. In my testgames they were running 70% faster in fast forward.

Can reliably reproduce crash with Simutrans 111.1 and pak 64 111.0 r609. Just open it up to the start screen, let it run for a few minutes, and bam. I uploaded the logfile, but I don't know if it will be very telling. http://simutrans-germany.com/files/upload/logfile111.1r609.log. No such crash with new version of pak 64.

111.1 should consume much less CPU. In my testgames they were running 70% faster in fast forward.

Hmm. In my testing (no fast forwarding) 111.1 used only 1.5% less cpu time as compared to 111.0. 111.0 used about 34% and 111.1 used about 33.5% -- pretty negligible.

The routine which looked up the next neightbour in grund_t were called during drawing/from vehicles, during way search as well as building. In test games I went from 12-13 to 18-20 acceleration in fast forward.

Would it be possible to start one of the servers with a recent nightly version? As a test, whether all the code changes in the last week cured the server crashes (at least to some extent).

Might be nice! And if fixed perhaps a new stable should be released.

It seems like sometimes when the server starts up it doesn't actually begin running properly. The restart script is restarting it, but the server isn't actually responding...

I'll switch the 64 one to a nightly at some point this weekend, and see if that helps. I'll also have to try and work out why it fails to start up properly sometimes.

It looks like when it crashes and is restarted it isn't listening on the correct interface. And it was looking like it was working because it was listening on localhost (to which I was connecting using nettool/simquery.py) and not on the external interface.

I might add some code which causes the game to quit with an error if it's unable to listen on all the interfaces you specify in the configuration. It shouldn't silently run in this situation.

Seems to crash immediately upon joining now. It loads the map, and boom -- I immediately get the desync message and the server is down for a minute. On the bright side, seems to reliably restart now...

Bug on closure fixed in r5344 seems to also affect netgaming -- 2 clients cannot connect at the same time because the map won't destroy. Maybe tonight's nightly will be a little more stable.

I'm writing a patch to add functions to nettool to let you change player passwords and names (as well as to delete a player, and query a list of current players). Will be useful to be able to change this stuff without needing to log into the game.

Sounds like the server does not allow you to build anything anymore :/  Does restarting & rejoining fix it?

Edit: the server is also reporting that the paksets are different.
