We are having some connections issues

Written by on 2009-05-19 15:23:00 :: Others

Hey everyone,

You may have noticed that the bots had some problems while playing to our casino games. This is due to an issue between our 2 servers. In fact, we have one server hosted in Denmark and one France, and both are working together. Sometimes we lost the 'link' between France and Denmark, that's why our bots can't call the database located on the other server and it results in a crash of the bots (for ~2min).

This happened three times today. I'm going to check if I can find any information about any rooting issue or something. Stay tuned!

Working on a Trivia Game!

Written by on 2009-05-18 14:25:00 :: Bots Update


I'm currently developping a new game for the FunBots :

A Trivia Game, based on custom database.

What does this mean?
Everyone know what a Trivia Game is, the bot asks a question, and you have to answer (Really basic, isn'it ? :D). But, I'm currently developping a 'custom database' system, which means you will be able to add your own question for your channel (By categories). I'm also thinking of a option to set a database 'public' or 'private', if for example, you made a good list of questions and you would like to share it to others channels.

If you guys are intesting to test this game, contact me (Blady) on IRC!

Bots & BNCs are back online

Written by on 2009-05-08 11:54:23 :: Maintenance


After 2 days of downtime, bots & BNC are reconnecting! Everything should be up & running again in a couple of minutes (Time for the Bouncers to reconnect to quakenet). I'll edit the news when everything will be online.

Sorry again for the downtime, I promise to pay the server in time for the next month :P


EDIT: Everything is back online again! Have Fun!

Bots maintenance (done) - some money lost

Written by soczol on 2009-05-04 15:14:00 :: Website Update

Hi, as some of you might have already noticed we've had some issues with our bots today (March 3rd, 2009). When trying to fix that issue we also accidentally removed everyone's money.

Database issues

For some reason our bots kept losing the connection to the database server. The effects of this problem was clearly noticeable and varied from bots not responding to not giving you money. They also lagged terribly and 'Excess Flood'-ed sometimes. To fix these issues we had to temporarily shutdown the bots. A temporary fix has now been put in place. The bots are still reconnecting but I expect them to be up soon.

Some money lost

Unfortunately when we tried restarting the main bot it for some reason decided that a new month was started. As you all know we 'reset' all accounts at the start of a new month, meaning that we remove each users money and give them 2'000$. Normally this only happens at the start of a new month. Unfortunately, because the bot thought a new month has started (we're still not sure why), the mainbot did exactly that: it removed the money for all accounts.

We have restored the database from a backup that's made every midnight. Everyone should have back the money that they had at that time. Any money earned after that has unfortunately been lost. We're sorry, but there isn't much we can do about that.

If there are any updates then we'll let you know in this newspost.

17:38 (GMT+2) Bots are starting
17:50 (GMT+2) All bots are online and should have rejoined their channels.

Thanks for your patience.

BNCs are now back online!

Written by on 2009-05-04 15:15:00 :: BNC

Heya again :P

Our BNC server is now back online, so previous Casino users can now request their BNC again (use !bnc request on #FunBots). As I can't request many IPs, you don't have the possiblity to change your vhost (Current and default one: funbots.org). I'll try to see if I can get more IPs.

We moved temporarily our bots

Written by on 2009-05-04 15:15:00 :: Bots Update

Hey everyone!

As you probably saw, we had 3 days of downtime due to a downtime of our server. But we are now back online temporarily on a server courtesy provided by TheAvatar (from EuShells.com). We'll keep this hosting solution till me and m4x receive our own server! This should take 1 or 2 weeks (including the setup time)

During this temp. period, we won't be able to maintain our BNC services (we have to limit the number of BNCs for the bots only), so that's why I'm really sorry for all of our BNC users, they will get their BNC back online as soon as we get our new server.

About the Casino winner, no prizes will be given right now, as we can't host anything more that our bots (This means, NO bnc, NO voice servers). This will be fixed as soon as we get our new servers. We are really sorry for this.

If you have any questions/problems/suggestions, just feel free to leave us a message @ IRC or by mail ( Blady [at] evilcoders [dot] eu ).
