Illarion vs NVIDIA


As some of you noticed there is a major issue with the latest version of the NVIDIA graphics driver version 378.49.

Once this driver is installed, the Illarion Client will not start any more and it will show an error message during the launch.

After extensive checks, I am sad to say that we can't resolve this issue on our end. The driver refuses to create a hardware accelerated OpenGL display from inside Java.

The only way to get around this issue currently is to install an older version of the driver. The previous version 376.33 works without issues.

The error was already reported to NVIDIA and will be fixed hopefully in one of the upcoming versions of the driver. We'll keep checking new drivers as they arrive and keep you up to date.

Downtime due to bot attack

Last night, Illarion was molested by the SEMrush bot. The extremely aggressive behaviour of that bot caused some parts of our server to break down. The first thing that broke was the PostgreSQL database, due to a faulty configuration on our end. We were able to fix the problem on our end. There was no data loss and all characters are fine.

After some fiddling we managed to block out the bot that was spamming our page. The database is working again as expected. The game server is starting up right now. We are back.

Have fun!
