Thanks Hutti...

but we can not access the website you have up for saved games. just fyi.
first thing first, I'm so sorry for my long response in the forums, please apologize.
I forgot to set the file correct for the backups. Now all is working fine. You can find all at or directly the savegames at Feel free to contact me when something is not working correctly
First off I want to thank u Hutti...

so we had a game that we were playing... and we got unlucky....

even though I was making gamesaves each turn... we crossed your 4am automatic reset...

it reset us on 2362...

then I went to your saves directory and did not find the autosave nor the gamesaves that I had made...
normally the local gamesaves that I make also save on the server... somehow it did not...

then I tried a /localload... and it did not work either... time to ask as dev on this....

so it seems I would like to ask for a automatic gamesave at the time or before the reset...

and ask if you can check to prove the save files work...

and be able to load them off the directory u mention.

thanks again Hutti.

Hello Mekslayer,

I have checked the whole servers and found a 'little' missconfiguration. This caused all savegames to a wrong directory on the server. I copied the found files to the new 'lost+found' directory on , hope your savegame exists there. The autosave is unfortunatelly the last autosave over all six servers. I'm very sorry about this failure.

The servers were all checked and everyone is now saving the savegames in the right directory, where the backup script can find them.

Also I tried the /localload on the 0.38 servers and found following:
- The savegame has to be exist in the local 'savegames' directoy in the megamek 'install' folder
- when you connected to a server with the same version than the savegame, it can be loaded with " /localload [filename] "
- now disconnect and reconnect to the server and you will join the loaded savegame
I only checked this with a testbot Match and the testbot did not connect to the game, so I had to shutoff the server to cancle the match. It should work, when all human players, with their right name, are getting connected to the server, I hope Smile

When you need another time for server reset, please let me know. I can change the reset for one server port so it fits for nighttime in your timezone.
Thanks Hutti...

It seems the directory you copied from did not have our last gamesave...

and as u mentioned the autosave does not work as it gets overwritten...

but the method you suggested for the local load does work properly...

so I can at least reload our last local save....

so would it be possible to have one server ... perhaps the last one... reset at noon in your local time?

... oh PS... I think you can delete old saves from the 36.1 host that are now a 38.0 host... just to save space...

thanks for providing this support Hutti, it is much appreciated... as I can see by the number of saved games on the server... :-)

Hello mekslayer,
