Sorry for the delay in relaying this information to you guys. The site is currently running off a backup server right now. HMW will be down for the next 72 hours until this problem is resolved. Apparently the database server had a bad scuzzy drive which has been causing the problems with the bad database tables, according to ThePlanet (the company which hosts's servers). This would explain why I wasn't able to create proper backups of the Forums, Demiurgic City and Heavy Metal War during the past few months. The only thing that looks like something wrong happened with this latest problem are the private messages but I haven't had a chance to check yet. Hopefully once this issue is resolved, everything will be back to normal. I apologize for any inconvenience this has caused any of you.'s Server Hosting Company said:

It appears that sda is going bad, and will need to be replaced. Since this is a hardware failure you will need a restore and the restore, obviously will be of no charge to you. All we need is the go ahead to bring your server down for this maintenance or a good date and time thats convenient for you. Your server only holds two drives so we can remove your sdb drive temporarily to slave the old master to the new master drive for data recovery. Please let us know how you would like to proceed. Thank you.

If anyone registered an account and played HMW between the database switchover on Sunday and the crash on Thursday, and lost their account in the crash, it may be possible to link up your pre-crash HMW data with the new account you've created since then.

Please visit this forum thread and post your details as soon as possible to allow me the best chance of retrieving your HMW data. Thanks.

As you may be aware, is going through a few changes at the moment. Several players have reported that they're unable to log in to the game, so here's how you do it:

1) Go to the Members link on the top menu bar
2) Log in as normal
3) Click the Game link to get back to HMW

I've made a couple of minor changes to the HMW interface to try to make this as smooth as possible. Please bear with us while the kinks are ironed out.

Since I believe I've finally got all the Energon problems sorted out, I figured it's time to give out some slightly-belated presents!

Everyone just received 20 times their characters' worth in XP and Energon, if I got my sums right. Enjoy!

Also, since I finally sorted out the issue with auto-CR payments and negative Energon, I've cancelled the debts of everyone who'd gone into the red and given enough credit for everyone to be on at least €5,000. I'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Depressedagainuk_679 for managing to work up the biggest € debt at a whopping -€183,570... ;-P

Happy New Year to all the HMW players out there!
