  3. Will be bringing the forum down for a minute or so in 10 minutes. 1 melodramatic panic = 1 ban 👍

      Oh why did I get tag--

      Dammit. I was so close!

  4. Forum update shortly, a little downtime expected.

    1. Milo

      Milo

      Don't tell me SSMB's going under because of Nintendo America too D:

  5. Testing something, don't worry if things seem broken for 5 minutes or so.

    1. Joy

      Joy

      That's exactly what someone would say when we SHOULD be worried!

      I see your game!

  6. Apologies for the slight downtime there, was doing an update to the database engine and it was down longer than I expected it to be.

    1. Kiah

      Kiah

      Downtime = break time for me and the rest of Staff so no apologies are necessary and thank you instead! ?

  7. Just posted this, anything egregiously wrong or that I've missed, guys?

      Just was wondering but where was it said that a CD version of Mania OST is expected? I know about the vinyl and the digital download code you get, but that's it.

      @Mysterion I'm pretty sure Aaron's mentioned they're looking at it at some point. Otherwise, what major Sonic game have they not released at least one soundtrack for? :P

      *Sweating* S-SANIC B-B-BOOM RISE OF LYRIC! 

      (Okay but yeah, good point lol I do look forward to owning the Mania vinyl + CD whenever that happens!)

  8. Welcome back, guys.

    (Before you say anything, I know. Something that really shouldn't have been the way it was destroyed my motivation to clean things up tonight)

  9. We're going to start an update of the forum sometime in the next hour. This is a fairly large update that is expected to break some minor things, so the forum will be locked until it's complete. Don't be alarmed if you see error messages!

    Including the on-demand backup and update process, we expect it to take about 2 hours.

    1. Tara

      Tara

      Oh boy I'm ready!

      Updates, if necessary, will be on the Discord server: https://discord.gg/9hZjPQM

    4. Tara

      Tara

      We have a Discord server or is that the official unofficial one?

    5. bmn

      bmn

      Official unofficial :P

    6. Tara

      Tara

      Oh okay.  I thought there was something I was missing.

    7. Kiah

      Kiah

      Only 2 hours?! We need a longer break than that! :( 

    8. bmn

      bmn

      I can make that happen if you like ;)

    9. KHCast

      KHCast

      EVERYTHING will change!

    10. Kiah

      Please d-I mean that's okay, no need to do so. Thank you :) 

    11. bmn

      bmn

      Starting now. First up is a general software update for the server, then the forum will be locked up.

  10. Rebooting the forum server, should be back in a few minutes.

  11. We'll be doing a forum software update shortly (you'll notice a maintenance message), followed by an attempt to switch from PHP v5 to v7 to hopefully improve performance. This may result in some downtime, depending on how smoothly the switch goes.

    1. Joy

      Joy

      The forum's future depends on the Switch's success. 

      Don't mess this up Nintendo!

    2. TCB

      TCB

      Nintendo your console better not screw us over

    3. Ayliffe

      Ayliffe

      I take it that it's over now?

    4. bmn

      bmn

      Switch is done (sorry Big N). Please let me know (here is fine) if things seem less stable or there are other problems.

  12. Had an interesting dream last night about Sonic 2017, and what my subconcious apparently thought it should play like :P

    It basically played like Generations, except the level was split up (both by distance, and vertically) into sections defined as being for Modern or for Classic. The moment you go into a section as the wrong character, the other jumps in and you start playing as them instead. Also, obstactles in the levels were designed so that if you messed up they'd drop you down to a lower floor which was set up for the other character (reminiscent of Classic jumping in to save Modern in the trailer), and there was the occasional section where the other would run beside you and you could switch characters freely Heroes/Time Eater-style.

    Sceptical as to whether something like this would work in practice, but seemed cool in my head :)

    1. Cyrus

      Cyrus

      I still don't know if I want switching between Sonics on the fly to actually be a thing

    2. bmn

      bmn

      Me either if I'm honest. Personally I don't like the idea of having two Sonics again at all, but it's happening :P

  13. Today's TSS bidnis trivia:

    For nearly five years, TSS has had £100 of credit on a random shopping site, from an advertising campaign that went (a lot) better than expected. It's in New Zealand though, so we can't actually do anything with it :(

  14. https://www.sonicstadium.org/2016/09/sega-announces-sonic-mania-collectors-edition-for-north-america/

    Anything grossly wrong with this, guys? I haven't done the news-writing thing in a while!

    1. Fletch

      Fletch

      Nothing wrong except the fact that PS4 version is now sold out. 

      PC and XBOX One are still available.

    2. Fletch

      Fletch

      Well, back in stock now it seems...

    3. bmn

      bmn

      I imagine that'll be people not completing their order - the store will have to reserve the item for a certain amount of time, so it doesn't sell out while someone's actually paying for it, but then if they don't, eventually it goes back into the stock pool.

  15. Does the Sonic Mania demo (haven't played it, this is what life is like as an event organiser!) have any speed shoes in it? I'm wondering if Mania has/will follow the StealthTax classics in doing the music speedup properly (as opposed to Generations/4's mess of a workaround).

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Yes, in the GH demo I played at SoS it did.

      Can't remember how it sounded.

       

    2. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I could see StealthTax just making new speed up music for the game, seeing as it's also using new invincibility music. 

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      The invincibility music is a remix of Mania's title screen music, so I'm thinking the speed-shoes will be something similar and not just the level music sped-up.

  16. Server reboot shortly. Expect a few minutes of downtime, assuming nothing goes wrong :P

      The impossible happened! :o

  19. Starting at 10pm (5 minutes), we're going to be trying out SSMB on the new version of PHP for (initially) an hour. You shouldn't notice any difference (except maybe faster loading), but if you do, can you post it in this status or in bug reports? Thx :)

    1. bmn

      bmn

      (by "difference", I of course mean buggy behaviour :o)

  20. There'll be a short (as in, less than 15 seconds, but I know you lot like to lose your shit when uptime isn't 100%) period of downtime soon.

    (specifically, we're rebuilding/reinstalling the web service, as the last OS update inadvertently broke the download links for TSS Projects)

      And it was exactly at the time I returned home from work and tried to get on for the evening. You sure know how to time it.

      I lost 6 fucking seconds of my life waiting for SSMB to come back.

      I'm calling my lawyer!!

  21. Well, that was fun!

    1. Hui

      Hui

      thanks for the fun :)

  22. I always feel a little dirty when I work on optimising the display advertising on TSS. Really happy I made the decision back in the day to make sure there was nothing shown on the forum for members, makes me feel better knowing we have a clean forum to hang around in.

    1. FriendBot

      And as you can see, I wasn't crazy when I talked about spoilers not working. I usually use code for it. :(

      huh? they are working for me from pressing the button

      dangit, the spoiler code didn't work

    9. Your Vest Friend

      Your Vest Friend

      Like I said, the code doesn't work. The button does, but that wasn't what I usually used before. 

    10. Hui

      Hui

      why use a code though when the button is much easier? ;p

    11. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      What button?
