I'm not sure if we're supposed to be able to or not yet, so heads up if we are supposed to be able to copy toons over. It's disabled still. I tried the buff thing, but without /claim or some way to get a flying mount quickly, I didn't have time (Homework and scholarship hunting for next term, as well as a sewing project involving a 7 foot tall plush robot with light up eyes) I just think I'll hold off till I can play my comfy Necro.<br />(Not that I could have copied today. lol All my played toons are ... were... on Crushbone. [I still say the best option for all playstyles would have been taking Dark Age of Camelot's idea of basically keeping the servers as sort of an instanced version so peeps/guilds could keep their names, cross server travel would be as easy as a world bell (for subscribers), people looking for groups/guilds/raids or looking to view houses could search all servers, and those of us who try to avoid crowds could run off to the least populated servers. All kinds of win win... except for the already overburdened programmers, but hey, job security, right?]) <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" alt="Tongue" />

Now that the first server merge is done, is there an ETA for when we can /beta our toons to the beta server?

Gninja
10-22-2015, 01:35 AM
After tomorrow's patch (Thursday)

Are you guys patching the beta server after the main server patches? I'm just wondering because I tried to beta copy my toon on Perma and it says still not available. While I am having fun testing the beta its really not the same without our main Chars.

Gninja
10-22-2015, 04:48 PM
We are in process of testing it, once it passes we will enable it and let everyone know its active.

Elinea
10-22-2015, 05:14 PM
I will say that some of the beta buffed characters I made are pretty badass and don't even need a merc to fight stuff and live (like I thought I'd need). Once we get our geared toons in, we're going to plow through this stuff like it's nothing.

Does it take awhile for beta copy to appear? Did /beta in game, switched to beta & no character.

Gninja
10-22-2015, 05:35 PM
It can take up to 30min but typically pretty fast.

So... I will able to copy my toon after the patch on splitpaw?

Gninja

/beta should work on euro servers right now even without the patch.

Gninja
10-22-2015, 05:50 PM
It can take up to 30min to go through especially if a lot of requests are happening and a lot of requests are happening <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />

I dont think we will be getting the one shot from any quest mobs. Last years xpack was a level change and huge mit change to gear. I didn't see a huge mit change in the current quested gear just way more STA.

If it has been over 30 minutes is that when we should contact someone or wait longer?

Gninja

Just verified characters are getting copied over the script is pretty backlogged though from the number of copies so just give it some time to catch up

Spunkel
10-22-2015, 06:31 PM
/beta works fine on european servers or at least on Valor.<br /> <br />Now it would be awesome to get a fix for Vista please...

Sintropy
10-22-2015, 07:13 PM
Will sitting at the character select "auto-update" for the /beta characters or do you have to keep logging in and out of the game to see when it transferred?

Jsnappy
10-22-2015, 07:14 PM
I typed /beta on majdul around 10am PST and character hasn't shown up yet. How backed up are we at the moment?

Sintropy
10-22-2015, 07:18 PM
I did mine at around 9:30 PST and it's still not there yet so I'm guessing they are really backed up atm.

FriggaWitch
10-22-2015, 07:27 PM
Well I tried to do a /beta and it said this<br /><img src="https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/MTCdp9arIiaKmY5mHupYXnJzz4eA8RhOFkgCs3e3SWQ=w321-h168" class="bbCodeImage LbImage" alt="[IMG]" /><br />When I logged onto the Beta server NO COPY was there just the stupid buff toon I made. Geez

Kuulei
10-22-2015, 09:01 PM
Still no copies, Gninja said they were backlogged but really, just how many people are doing the beta? I saw like 86 people on the server when I logged in today at around 10 am pacific.<br /> <br />I just checked at 1:05 pm pacific and 92 on the server and no one would reply if they were indeed a copy.<br /> <br />I just think they broke the copy feature!<img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" alt="Tongue" />

Jrel
10-22-2015, 09:02 PM
Yeah, still nothing here after 3 hours. 2 toons not showing up yet. Must be a huge queue within a few minutes after the notice.

Interesting. I copied while standing in my guild hall. When I logged in, I was dead in front of Ossuary zone door.<br /> <br />And my inventory was overflowing. Turns out the entire contents of all 8 of my shared bank boxes are in my overflow.<br /> <br />And it was FULL. Weee!

Is there an ETA for Valor beta copy?

Sintropy
10-22-2015, 09:37 PM
Then it's completely random on when a character gets transferred and not dependent upon when you issued the /beta command. I just did it again about 10 minutes ago on another toon and nothing has been copied yet.

Jrel
10-22-2015, 09:54 PM
You might be right Sintropy. I did the same thing. Copied a new toon from outside the GH over 10 minutes ago and it's not showing up. And the others that I copied from the GH and also in Freeport (4 hours ago in 7 more minutes), still haven't shown up at the character select screen. I also should mention I'm on Maj'Dul.

Tabri
10-22-2015, 10:01 PM
I copied over 4 hours also ago I think and nothing is showing up my toons are in Commonlands and Antonica. I just re- copied about minutes ago and still nothing.

The transfers are going through but its taking a few hours for some. Also sometimes you may need to reload your character list to get it to show up. Either create or delete a character or try logging in and back out to refresh it.

Just got an update and it looks like we've gotten through only about a hundred copies so far. With the current number of requests its looking like it could take up to 24 hours. The DB has been getting hammered lately so everything is slowing down. We are looking at ways of speeding it up but as of right now its looking like there isn't much we can do with it other than just wait.

I just tried creating a new toon as per Gninjas suggestion, but I'm getting "There are no servers available right now; please try again in a few minutes."<br />Also at least on Valor, when /beta-ing it still says "Beta copy logs are disabled for this world at the present time"

The beta server is still locked at the moment so you'll have to wait until they are done patching it.

Looks like it is working but not from houses or instances. Give it a try in the city or one of the overlands and it should work. We are investigating why it would be different on that one server.

Not here yet either. By the time it happens, they'll need to take the server down to patch anyway as progression is blocked on several quests needed to keep advancing so might as well enjoy Live/TLE.

My toon still hasn't shown up! So I tried it once again this morning a couple of hours ago and yet again, no toon. Are there problems with the beta copies actually getting copied to beta at the moment?

Almost 24 hours here too. You guys have forced me to play another game yesterday called cleaning the house. Its not as fun but I did find a few silver coins and got DBL xp points from my wife <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" /> If I don't get a copy soon I may have to play "go out side and do stuff" lol On the real I know you guys are chugging over there. With the current server merge issues, setting up the next merge, trying to get beta stable and finish char copies you got a lot going on. I just wanted to say thanks for the regular updates on progress it matters a lot.

I went through last night (Thursday/Friday) and copied my Maj' Dul toons to /beta. It's now 12:45pm (edt) and my toons still aren't appearing on the beta server. I've made two toons, from scratch, but they don't have all the stuff they need to really test anything in crafting. Also, is there a server guild hall, with workstations, for testers? If there is, would you please tell me where it is located?

not quite 24 hours but close but it will be once i get home from my errands until i can get my copied toons no beta testing for me i've done 2 days with newly created buffed toons having to fight with a hotbar set up that i'm not used to is impossible for me.

Its been well over 24 hours since I did my /beta (Guk server) and there are still NO copied toons in Beta. Should I re-/beta and clog the system up more potentially? Or should I continue to wait, now that its well beyond 24 hours...

Not that it helps the hamsters run faster, but my beta copy hasn't gone through yet as of yet, either.

Also, the folks that yet to be merged - which is happening DURING beta - now that we had to wait 2 extra days for Maj'Dul to be finished to /Beta and now that /Beta is BORKED are losing a LOT of Beta time on our main toons. My feeling is that we should have been able to /beta the first day Beta was open - might have been a bit of an easier load for the system to handle. As it stands, we seem to be just at the short end of it...and still not able to get into Beta on our main/s.

Well....heck. In a last ditch Hail Mary, I tried to beta copy two other characters...hoping to get at least one of the three into beta for this weekend's mostly uninterrupted play time. With a beta buffed character, yes I can test quest functionality, and other things, but to really test, I'd have to do so on my main. There are huge differences between temp buffed characters, and characters we all play on ever day. I'll keep my fingers crossed, of course, but with the weekend upon us, I'm kind of losing hope.<br /><br />No dig on DBG, I know they're busy, and I know if they had their druthers, things would be working much more smoothly.

I did my beta copy for my illy and fury from AB just a little after they let us do it so well over 24 hours. When I logged into beta the first time it was showing 3 of my toons on permafrost that I didn't upload but they were locked. So I logged into perma and beta copied one of them. When I got back into beta char screen that one that had been locks disappeared. Then I made a new toon on beta and another of the locked perma toons disappeared as well. So now I am down to only the beta buffed toon with none of my server toons on beta. I hope this helps the Dev team out some how.

Almee
10-24-2015, 12:04 AM
None of the toons I copied over yesterday have showed up yet so I started yet another toon. I spent all morning and afternoon on trying to do the crafting sig quest. I decided to see if one or more of my toons had finally copied over and found that they hadn't plus they apparently wiped the server as the toon I made this morning is gone <sigh>. I think I'll wait a couple of days before trying again.

I am with Alenna. I'm out of Guk, and had one char over in AB. I copied on Thursday several characters that were in and out of houses/guild halls. I recopied 1 as a test Friday. Then as an additional test I copied the L20 AB character. Guess who showed up? The least prepared character from AB. <br /> <br />People relax more if they know what is going on, if there is an issue or even a pat on the head with a cookie that "be patient, we have to hand move each character and it take time". If there IS a problem then tell us. We can deal with news, even bad news, so long as we know what is going on. And even if you don't know, a public announcement "we apologize but there are problems moving certain characters from their home server over to Beta". <br /> <br />While I have made a beta character and found the tradeskill timeline so far to be engaging and interesting, I have also seen and heard enough to know that pursuing the adventure side could be problematic without better geared toons. I mean for Pete's sake, we don't even have adornments! <br /> <br />But TALK to us please, please, pretty please!!

I didn't recopy mine I copied around the time they opend it up for copies. I hope the rest of you all get in today I know beta buff toons are just not the same for testing.

I noticed some updates to betaserver files when I launched this am. My original copies from 2 days ago still do not show when I switched over to Beta.<br /> <br />Going to take Alenna's recommendation and copy over a character who has never been to beta land. She is mid level everything and will attempt the beta buffer if she is successful on her journey ))<br /> <br />Oh, right, gotta give that girl some money and harvests lol<br /> <br />PS Off Topic: If any one knows a nice way to over winter scented geraniums (pelargoniums) I'd be grateful for advice. 13 of 20 survived last winter, but it was mild. The drought claimed another 5 this summer, boo hoo, so I'd like to keep the remaining 8 safe. Thanks in advance )

Over 48 hours - still no copied toons in Beta from either of my accounts. Its sad, that's all; just sad. And what are we supposed to do? Play beta buffed new toons the entire Beta?

48 hours no copy from Guk or test this is 24 hours after they said they should be there. guess no beta for me this weekend because I don't have the proper tools to beta test. guess all I can do until you free my characters copied form live servers is cyle though the pack pony and goblin to get harvest materials for when or more to the point I'm beginning to think IF my live toons are copied over. i refuse to be handicapped in my testing with the buffed characters. when you free my live toons i'll beta test not until then.

Well, this is very odd. The 3rd toon I copied finally showed up 53 hours later, but the first two, that I had copied 3 hours before my 3rd toon, aren't available.

I've just logged in to Splitpaw to try another /beta on all of my characters to see what happens. All of my characters are very young in EQ2 terms (less than a year old, some just a few months old). So hopefully this will work, I'll sleep on this and log in tomorrow morning.

I first copied my main character and my 7 level 100 crafters (8 total toons on Unrest) over to beta on Thursday. I then copied my level 20 toon on Nagafen over to beta last.<br /><br />I log into beta, and only the level 20 PvP toon is on the list. I just copied my level 100 Unrest swashbuckler over again, just so I can be annoyed all over again that you've done nothing to make this class raid-worthy.

Jrel
10-25-2015, 06:57 AM
7 hours later, I have not received 7 of 8 toons that I copied right after each other. The 1 of 8, I did get was 4 hours ago. I also finally got one that I copied from early Thursday, and its inventory also contained a copy of my shared bank in its overflow. If that is normal, then okay.

My main which was created in 2005 took 27 hours to copy over. Yet my two alts who were created in 2010 and 2011 took 36 hours to copy over so I think its all random pretty much. I did a /beta copy on all of them at the same time.<br /> <br />Tips I used in previous betas that helped I am not sure it will help people copying this expac<br /> <br />1. Make sure you copy in an overland zone(not in a dungeon, house, or city etc).<br />2. Make a level 1 or whatever character on beta so that you have something on the select screen.(dont name this the name of any of your characters or they will come over with an X on their name).<br />3. When you log beta dont try to use the drop down box to choose your character click play to go to character select screen instead first then choose one.

I took a toon from each acct yesterday and stripped my shared bank to completely empty sent them out to the boonies and did /beta copy. So far NO copied toon has showed up on my beta - not any of the ones I copied Thursday or from yesterday. During AoM beta I had NO PROBLEMS with /beta at all and was able to participate in that beta fully. Seems like the system is completely borked now.

Anyone know if it helps or hurts to /beta daily? I mean does it reset your position in this queue? I've also heard someone (unofficial) mention that characters with more data take longer. Is there something we can do to lessen the amount of data, is it just some bank/broker/housing cleanup or unrelated to in game items?

I have been unable to copy my main over. Alts have worked fine within 2 hours of /beta command, from various locations.

Beee
10-26-2015, 02:26 PM
without knowing the code of /beta command a possible problem might be the following behavior:<br /> <br />/beta does not work in all zones (eg not in guildhalls)<br />/beta only queues the copy command, and does not make an instant snapshot of the char<br /> <br />Te copying mechanism might try to copy an toon, and after analyzing the data it notices the toon in an uncopyable area, so it aborts the copyprocess and restarts with the first toon in Queue.. (which is in an non copyable area... and so on)<br /> <br />But a script which should copy a toon within 30 minutes, which is not finished 4 days later.. has a big performance problem <img src="/images/smilies/wink.gif" alt="Wink" /><br /> <br />How should we test with our toons if you are not able to copy it? We do not need equipment in our bank, just just the toon with it's carried equipment, and that's cant be a huge amount of data
