Severe Power outage at ISP...
- Posted on August 11th, 2003 - 21:49 by Faustus
Due to some major thunderstorms rolling through Austin, TX, our ISP experienced a serious power outage. The ISP does have backup power, but due to the length of the power outage (over an hour), the batteries drained and all servers lost power. Due to the lost of power, some star systems were corrupted and had to be reset.

[Update] Servers are all back online at 10:30 CST, most of the storm activity has gone south of Austin.

MetaVerse Reset...
- Posted on March 9th, 2003 - 14:11 by Dr Evil
The MetaVerse was reset back to neutral early Saturday morning (March 8th, 1am CST) to cure the chronic lag problems we have been experiencing in both the game servers and in the chat rooms.
Web Server...
- Posted on February 10th, 2003 - 13:51 by Faustus
A few changes have happened with the DarkSpace web server...

Firstly, we've been forced to place bandwidth restrictions on our web server to limit the amount of bandwidth being used. We've also added a new module to compress the web pages, also in an effort to reduce bandwidth usage. Lastly, we have moved our web pages to a faster machine. This may cause some people to experience problems with downloading the client, as it takes a few hours for the DNS changes to propagate through the Internet.
AroundCinci.com Reviews DarkSpace
- Posted on February 3rd, 2003 - 22:04 by Selvarian
The Gaming section of AroundCinci.com has reviewed DarkSpace and been kind enough to give us an 8.5 overall rating! Thanks to Ben "the worst fleet admiral ever" Rudick for a great review. Here's a snippet...

One very outstanding element of the game is the players themselves. Never before in my gaming career have I been in such a welcoming and friendly gaming atmosphere. They were always willing to give me a loan or teach me tactics.

Gamers Hell gives DarkSpace and 8 out of 10. Here is a snipet from the review...

"This really is the closest to a perfect online space-strategy game Ive seen so far, but prepare to spend a fair amount of time getting to know everything until you really see this game shine."

GameZone reviews DarkSpace
- Posted on December 6th, 2002 - 13:51 by Faustus
GameZone has just posted a review of DarkSpace with a score of 8.1 out of 10. Here is a snipet from the review...

Given some time to grow, DarkSpace will likely be a sleeper hit a game that didnt come with a lot of hype, but won fans through its game play. This is a game that looks good, sounds great and plays well. The focus on multiplayer gaming may be coercing players into cooperative game play, but if you dont want that kind of experience, dont purchase an on-line game.
