  A request for your patience - Site News

So as you've no doubt noticed by now, things are an absolute mess on the server side. The Break IT team is in the process of remaking the back-end of the site so that it actually works. This will be a welcome change. Without giving too much away, the code behind the A2Files we all know and love is as old as the game itself. And we all know how frustrating the classLabel and other ancient aspects of the game code can be to work around. What the IT people are doing at present isn't just some Fleet Operations-style revamp of the existing code. It's a complete replacement of the code. It's like taking A2 and rewriting the code so it works like the best parts of Trek Online, Sins of a Solar Empire, and Star Wars Empire at War. It's going to take some time.

In the meantime, just so we're clear:

- The file upload system should, for the most part, remain unaffected. So if you upload new mods, they'll be on the site within days, unless you're told otherwise. And you WILL be informed, at least as far as I'm able. There is presently no good reason for you not to make your mods available to the entire community. A2Files is still the only place around where you can do that. We welcome all submissions.

- PotD will continue to be erratic. So will the images associated with files. We will work to restore all that stuff once the overall progress is sufficiently far along to make it worth our while. But the picture server, since it's so much more deeply encoded, will be much more buggy than anything else. Sorry.

- No, absolutely not. That is our answer to anyone who thinks that these upgrades mean the end of A2Files, or the community's end, or whatever. We're still modding. We're still here. Yeah, the place looks a little messy but renovations usually are. What makes A2Files so great is that it's still our place. And we're what makes it that way.

One last thing. We know you're frustrated. We're frustrated, too. Unfortunately these IT types don't really understand, or particularly care about, the meaning of the term 'customer service'. We all deserve better. But the fastest way to get there is, unfortunately, to be patient, to wait and see. We hope you're still around to read this. And for what it's worth..... we're sorry for the mess.

You guys have always been straight up with the community. Break IT could use to learn your ability for communication. Good job guys!

Way to take a shot at Fleet Ops in parting, SFK. If you don't quite understand something, better not to mention it at all.

No worries mate, we know this isn't your guys doing and that you'll work just as hard (if not harder) to get things back up and running once the IT guys have done their thing.

This site and the A2 community have been through worse than this, we'll be fine, and speaking for myself I'm not going anywhere smile

Maybe it could have been phrased better. Anyway, as long as the site is still here I'll keep checking on it. smile

They are not re-writing the game code. What they are doing is re-writing all the code for the server that filefront is hosted on.
