Default Loginserver Issues

For about the entire day now we've had issues with the Loginserver. Someone has been packet flooding with what seems to be registration requests and since the old loginserver is ancient and brittle and not sure we have the source code for anymore - making source changes to mitigate overflows and clean things up is not a fast solution.

Titanium has mostly worked, just displays a ton of garbage characters in the server list. Titanium users do not need to take any additional action.

Titanium and above (RoF) works however it displays an empty server list which leaves folks unable to login at all.

Rogean has bounced the Loginserver earlier and the day and it has continued to has issues. I've informed him of the continued issues but have not heard back since the second wave of issues.

To restore functionality to servers that use RoF clients predominately - you can use login.projecteq.net modern Loginserver as a working proxy with your EQEmulator account without issues until the current legacy one can be stabilized. This means that the server that you play on will also need to list themselves on the other loginserver as follows

Code:
      "loginserver1": {
        "account": "",
        "password": "",
        "legacy": "1",
        "host": "login.eqemulator.net",
        "port": "5998"
      },
      "loginserver2": {
        "port": "5998",
        "account": "",
        "password": "",
        "host": "login.projecteq.net"
      },
Client changes would be as follows (eqhost.txt file)

Code:
[LoginServer]
#Host=login.eqemulator.net:5999
Host=login.projecteq.net:5999
This is a for now solution. Servers listing on the login.projecteq.net Loginserver will show as unregistered standard servers but it will be completely functional.

Several servers are working through the secondary currently.

Thanks everyone and apologies for the headache. Try to enjoy your Halloween weekend!
