Service outage
- Posted on November 10th, 2019 - 17:16 by Mersenne Twister
DarkSpace suffered a security breach on 11 September, which required taking all game services offline while the damage was assessed and the exploited vulnerability is secured.

We are aware the attacker has dumped the forum database containing user names, login names, email addresses, and hashed passwords.

All users are strongly encouraged to change their DarkSpace password through the GameCQ menu or your profile page, along with any other passwords that may be linked to the same email address or user name as used for your Darkspace account.

Game servers have been restored, and game profiles should be unaffected.
The web server has also been updated, with the vulnerability patched. While the website, forums, and wiki should be operating as normal, limited site functions may remain unavailable.
If a page appears to be inaccessible, or behaving abnormally, please notify a staff member, or post in our Discord channel.
Regarding GameCQ Browser Subscription Management
- Posted on June 16th, 2017 - 06:03 by SnipeDragon
It has been brought to our attention that the browser embedded into GameCQ is no longer compatible with PayPal, as a result any function that sends you to PayPal is no longer possible through GameCQ. Instead, you can use a current version of your favorite browser (Chrome, Firefox, Edge etc.) to manage your subscription or to purchase credits directly from the DarkSpace website.
DarkSpace development is now open-source..
- Posted on May 22nd, 2016 - 17:41 by Faustus
This has been a long time coming, we are officially making all further development on DarkSpace open-source. What does this mean to you as a player? Nothing, except hopefully we will see more contributions and progress on development.

If you would like to contribute to the development to the game, you can now grab source code from github and make pull requests to see your changes make it into the game. Visit https://github.com/palestar/darkspace for more information.
Regarding errors about invalid username/password
- Posted on July 24th, 2015 - 09:02 by Mersenne Twister
If you're seeing this error when trying to log into GCQL, you DO NOT need to change your password. Easy way to check is to try logging in on the website, if that works, your password is just fine.

The issue is caused by mySQL crashing, which prevents client authentication.
A troubleshooting session is tentatively scheduled for this weekend, but no ETA yet on a permanent fix.

Again, if GCQL is rejecting your login, but you can log to the forums fine, you don't need to change your password. Just try again a bit later in the day and we should have stuff restarted by then.
