Neocron servers back online
Written by Brammers   
Friday, 26 July 2013

Yesterday, the Neocron servers (Including IRC and the forums) went offline due to an IO/Hardware issue. A further update has been posted on Facebook and Twitter.

"Due to the extent of the hardware issues at our data centre, ‪‎#Neocron‬ will unfortunately remain offline this weekend. Head out and enjoy the sun for the next couple days. We'll let you know if we can get back online any sooner.

Needless to say, as always, Zoltan is putting in some insane hours to restore the service. So, think of him while you're in a beer garden this sunny weekend!"

So no Neocrack this weekend. However for those needing to talk about Neocron, you can always use the THN forums

Update: 28th July all servers are back up and running.

Neocronicle rises again
Written by Delphi   
Thursday, 26 April 2012

Older runners in the population of the great city of Neocron, who remember the time before the death of (our great leader) Reeza, will also remember a small news company known as the neocronicle. For quite some time the holowriters used by the reporters have remained silent as runners hunted the reporters for both sides of the war. However, no longer! The techhaven network is pleased to inform all runners tuned to our frequency that the neocronicle feed has been reactivated using the official forums .

Most recently reports have been posted surrounding the organisation of a defence force to remove a warbot force attacking the city gates (seriously how on Earth can these harbingers of doom still be around, surely someone somewhere must be making them?), the official organisation of a task force in order to cull the population of the Maulers in the deserts, and additionally reporting on press releases from a well known soft drinks company who has changed their slogan and now is giving away 'free' samples of their product in the safezone Plaza 1 medicare. 

We here at the Techhaven Network are pleased to once again be sharing the RPOS networks with the Neocronicle once again, and we look forward to working with the Neocronicle team again in the future reporting on world news as it happens. We advise all runners to continue to monitor both the Neocronicle and Techhaven Network feeds for up to date news, as it happens throughout the city and waste lands. 

 In additional news, the Techhaven Network would like to state for the record that any rumours concerning the impending release of a 'Techhaven Cola' are totally unfounded, however we can state that should we go into that business we would never use such cheap tactics as to give away samples. 

Neocron Launcher down - servers still up
Written by Brammers   
Wednesday, 18 April 2012

Just a heads up, the Neocron launcher page is currently down. This will prevent you from starting the game normally.

However the game servers are still up and running. There is a work around to allow you to play the game as normal. For details, please check out this thread on the forums

Patch 174 Released
Written by Brammers   
Thursday, 22 July 2010

Patch 174 has been released, which restores the Neocron client back to the same working files as patch 168.

This is what Chenoa posted. (English version edited for clarity.)

"We are sorry, but we have to patch "back" to #168 for now - but it's #174

The DEVs will continue working on this code patch, but its more important to bring the Hamster back into its wheel.

I hope everything is fine again for everyone when the server is up again. If not, please let me know here!

If everything is ok then... There will be a bit more action on the servers at the weekend!"


Patch 169-173 - Servers online.
Written by Brammers   
Thursday, 08 July 2010

Well, I have to admit this. None of us was expecting this to happen.

Yes folks, after 2 and half years, we have a patch. Here is what Thanatos announced on the forums and the launcher.

"This patch is not a content patch, but a technical patch to increase the security of Neocron's network traffic. These changes will break all known cheat programs.

Neocron now also requires newer Visual C++ runtimes. Odds are that another game or program has already installed these on your PC, but if Neocron does not start after applying the patch, you will need to go to Microsoft and download and install the vcredist_x86.exe at the bottom of the page."

So hopefully the cheaters will be gone, but it's not clear if this patch addresses the current stability (Such as mini-rollbacks etc) issues with Neocron.

Update: 23:41 - By Brammers: It looks like there is an issue with the patch.

"Unfortunately we haven't been able to resolve the issues with crashing on zoning yet. We'll keep working on it but right now it looks unlikely we'll be able to fix it tonight."

I've have tried to connect, but it fails to connect to the server. I am assuming Reakktor have stop the server to stop anyone patching or playing until they fix the problem. News of patch 170 and 171 will be posted here as soon as I hear about it.

Update: 16:33 9th July - By Brammers.

Another hotfix (172), and all the servers are back online.

Update: 11:10 12th July - By Brammers.

Looks like the problem wasn't fixed, and I have mis-reported that the servers are back online. My apologies for this.

This is the latest news:-

"Hey Community,
I'm not happy to tell you that we've decided to keep the server downtime during this weekend. We've tried fix the problems but we don't have any progress on that right now. We want to be fair so now you have to choose the second best choice for this weekend.

To be honest: This patch was tested without any problems on our local machines. This behaviour was a big surprise to us. So please excuse these unexpected changes.

We will not stop digging - if we have new information we will give it to you."

There is a thread open here.

Update: 18:32 12th July - By Brammers.

Another hotfix (173) has appeared on the FTP server, however no NC for us to play. This was the last update posted by Thanatos

"Unfortunately we haven't been able to get rid of the world crashes yet so we'll need to keep the servers down until at least tomorrow. "

Update: 21:14 13th July - Brammers.

An update from Thanatos. Sadly, it's still a no-go.

"Unfortunately we'll still have to continue our work tomorrow, so the servers will have to stay down for another day."

Update: 08:00 15th July - By Brammers.

No more news has been released since the last update,

Update: 23:53 16th July - By Brammers

The servers are online, however they do appear to be very unstable. My recommendation (And I mean mine personally, not the THN) is to be very careful. However, if you do have any comments or bugs reports, please contribute then here.

Update 12:57 17th July - By You know who.

Servers are down again until at least Monday, while the devs work on the issues.

Update 12.14 20th July- By the man with the Golden Zsusun

Servers are up, and it's seems to be looking better, however play with care! If you get any crashes or issues, please report them in this thread .
