    got the new accounts per the instructions.  i dont see my characters yet.  how long does it take to move over?


    I'm not sure what instructions you are referring to, or what you mean by "Seeing characters".  If you mean the email from "Closed Beta" that's not us, and their server merge is a different thing from ours.

    This all started just yesterday. I hoping this gets fixed soon.

    This was related to this:

    And should already be resolved by the restart I preformed this morning.  If you're still having issues let me know, but in my testing everything is working fine.

    No issues linking for me.

    Do you know about email items? should i make sure to claim my account items before the move?


    Global emails should transfer over with no issue. Currently Character Items migrate, but not Account Items.  The migration code is still being written though so don't worry about claiming account items just yet.

  4. If the connection to the server doesn't succeed the config isn't read, I need to fix that but the root issue is you're not getting the bootstrap.xml from the server, so the launcher stops all processing.

    I can't get the launcher to do much except give me errors. Fully removed and reinstalled. Issues remain.

    Installer asks for install directory, so I use the default. Launcher installs correctly, but once launched, it does nothing. I clicked "Verify" and it said the install directory was empty and to fix it. Fixed it and got the error below:


    Clicking OK, then OK, then File -> Verify gives the same error.

    Trying to select anything from the Manifest list gives this error:


    This means that something is blocking the connection out to this website from the Launcher.  Usually that's some Anti-Virus, or FIrewall.  I've only been able to reproduce this by breaking the network connection of the launcher as it's loading.

    Is this the reason the how to play section and such are down as well?

    Apologies, the account creation and how to play pages got disabled in a forum software upgrade, and then by a number of errors.  I believe I have fixed everything and it should be good to go again!

    Do we know when/if the link to connect our accounts will be running. Still getting an error message.

    This should be fixed now.  Forum upgrade disabled the module this was hooked in.  Sorry about that, thanks for letting me know!

  9. Hello, with the recent announcement that Homecoming has been granted a License to operate their City of Heroes™ Servers, we have been invited to merge Victory in as a 6th shard along their existing shards.  You will need to opt in to the transfer of your City of Heroes™ data to Homecoming, if you do not link your Victory account to Homecoming, your data will not be transferred, and you will lose your Characters and Supergroups.

    If you do not already have a Homecoming account you will need to create both a Forum account AND Game account here: https://forums.homecomingservers.com/getting-started/, and then head to our Account panel https://cityofheroes.dev/forums/account-tools/gameaccount.html/ and link the accounts.  There is no ETA currently for the merge, but it will be happening in the near future.

    When our server is merged into Homecoiming, you will keep your characters, their inventory, character descriptions and any Supergroup bases your characters own.  Your global handle may end up changed if it conflicts with an existing global handle in use on Homecoming.  Auction house data may or may not come across, and Architect Entertainment (Mission Architect) arcs will NOT transfer, if you wish to bring your MA Arcs across please make sure you save the arcs and custom critters and re-publish them after the merge.

  10. Once you hit Apply, you have to click the impossibly tiny X button on the corner of the settings dialog, or close the window via Menu -> Options.  If you click "Cancel" even after having clicked Apply it undoes your changes.

    i am having a issue getting to play for the first time. i get this error:


    c:/Games/Victory/assets/issue24/texVWorld.pigg: Fileheader extends past end of .pigg, probably corrupt .pigg file!  #178

    Your data might be corrupt, please run the patcher and try again.

    what should i do

    I think I helped you in Discord too?  For future reference In the Launcher System -> Verify

  12. The only time the launcher should download any files, is if the version number server side doesn't match the version number cached locally on the launcher's side, and even then it shouldn't re-download everything, unless all of the files don't match the hashes from the server.  There are no settings on the launcher that would cause this, other than the config.json file not being present.  The Website downtime yesterday was due to the core switch that the webserver and gameserver are connected to having power issues, those should be resolved now.

    i tried to put new pass word in on main page after i changed it still dose not work so what do i need to do make a hole new account if so how  do i put in a new user name and pass word


    You can only have a single game account linked to a single forum account.  The Game Account page I linked in your other thread will allow you to either make an account, or change the password for your current game account.  That password is not shared with your forum account, the two systems are 100% separate from each other.  I see you already have a game account created that is tied to this forum account, so all you need to do is go to the Game Account page: https://cityofheroes.dev/forums/account-tools/gameaccount.html/ The "Account Name" there is what you use @ the login screen in game, the password set there is also only for the game.


    If you want a second game account, you need to sign up for a second forum account, game account names are unchangeable after they are created.



    Another autumn's October greetings to all you classy cape wearers & stylish schemers out there!

     It's almost time for a frightfully good spook! 


    ...what time is that you might ask?
     Spooky season is once again upon us! Yes yes YES! 


    ? Get ready for the Victory Halloween Event! ?

    October 1st - November 1st


     I wonder if I could rock a traffic cone and be stylish too? 

    So, what does the Halloween event bring? I'm glad you asked!


    Each year, the fallen fae of the Unseelie Court attempt to invade our world by opening rifts when the spirit realm and the mortal realm are at their closest during the spooky Halloween season. Fortunately for us, they have been thwarted every year by the valiant efforts of Heroes and Villains who stop these spooky beings in their tracks!


    However, their persistence leads them to bolster their ranks if their attempts at world scaring are to succeed. The Unseelie Court's Hollow Reapers are ever-vigilant at seeking mystic methods to bring frightful fears! These reapers are using their spectral scythes to widen the rifts, allowing even more terrifying creatures of the night to invade when somebody is tricked whilst Trick-or-Treating! This can't be good...


    ? What is there to do during the Victory Halloween Event? ?

    Frightful Fights: Trick-or-Treating!

    • Five Elite Boss enemies that can spawn while Trick-or-Treating above Level 25!
      • Ancient Vampires
      • Spectral Werewolves
      • Arisen Mummies
      • Crone Matriarchs
      • Hollow Reapers


    • These spooky Elite Bosses will reward five-fold experience and influence for each one defeated!
      • Have any alts that still need some levels? Haven't tried out that one goofy power set combo yet? Want to build a meta character for Advanced Modes?
        • This would be a great opportunity to find some time to go Trick-or-Treating!


    • Each of these Elite Boss mobs also count for the legacy defeat badges. Spectral Werewolves count as both werewolf and ghost defeats!
    • These mobs spawn at a lower rate than other Trick-or-Treat enemies and were designed to be tough. For the best results, try Trick-or-Treating with a team or league!


     Looking for an efficient Trick-or-Treating spot? Might I recommend the motel near the hospital in Peregrine Island?  ?   


     Another year of dying to my own creations, I'm so proud / also working off a lot of experience debt... 


    Halloween Event Badges! + Aether Rewards!

    • Five badges for defeating each of the Trick-or-Treat Elite Boss types:

     Buy some costumes! Save up for something fancier! Or just sell it on the AH and rake in some inf! 


    Costume Goodies!

    • Fancy any of those Halloween costumes and wish you could keep them permanently?
      • If you earn all five of elite boss Halloween defeat badges and claim the rewards, you'll have enough Prismatic Aether currency to purchase one permanent Tier 1 Prestige Costume of your choosing from any of the BenevoLabs vendors found at Vault Reserve locations! Nice!


    • The Halloween Salvage vendors are also offering a limited-time Fir Bolg, Ancient Vampire, and Arisen Mummy Prestige Costumes which are available for the entirety of the month of October each year!
      • These Halloween prestige costume costs 10 Prismatic Aether Particles + 50 of each of the four Trick-or-Treat Halloween salvage types.


    ? New to Halloween in City of Heroes? Check out the variety of event activities! ?


    Badges, Badges, Badges!


    Zone Trick-or-Treating! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Halloween_Event/Trick_or_Treat

    • Go to any zone appropriate to your level range, click any mission door, and you'll be surprised with either a Treat reward or a Trick spook!
    • Treats will reward a variety of things:
    • Tricks will spawn Halloween enemies! Worry not, as these enemies can be defeated for badges!


    Zone Giant Monster Hunts! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Halloween_Event/Giant_Monsters

    • For the duration of the Halloween Event, you can find the giant monsters, Eochai and Jack-in-Irons, randomly throughout standard zones!
    • The pair are worth an exclusive badge for the first time defeating each, but every time they're defeated grants 6 Reward Merits to everyone who participated!
      • After being defeated, another Eochai or Jack will respawn somewhere in the same zone shortly afterward, so if you search the zone, they can be defeated many times repeatedly for lots of Reward Merits!



     Eochai: "I will be sure and 'squash' all of these mortal interlopers!" 


    Zombie Apocalypse Zone Invasions! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Zombie_Apocalypse

    • Keep an eye on the Zone Event channels! Frequently during the Halloween Event's runtime, zones will be attacked by a Zombie Apocalypse!
    • During this event, waves of zombies will spawn anywhere there are players and can be defeated for badges and experience!
    • Group up somewhere with a lot of allies and mow down zombies for rewards! Don't stand too close to Police Drones though!


    Deadly Apocalypse Zone Events! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Deadly_Apocalypse

    • Keep an eye on the Zone Event channels! If a spooky fog and four banners roll in, it's time for a Deadly Apocalypse!
    • In this event, players must coordinate to defeat enemies simultaneously at all four Banner locations marked on the map.
    • As the Banner's defenders are defeated simultaneously at all four locations, the protection on the Banners will gradually weaken. Remember if there aren't people at all four banners fighting, you won't be able to make any progress!
    • Eventually, the Banners will become vulnerable, and players can destroy each one for a total of four badges!
    • Once all four Banners have been destroyed, a Greater Mystic Aspect giant monster will spawn somewhere in the zone! If defeated they will reward players with another badge and choice of a temporary power!


    Dr. Kane's House of Horrors Trial! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Dr._Kane's_House_of_Horror

    • Grab four allies and queue for the Dr. Kane's House of Horrors Trial from the Looking For Group (LFG) tab on your chat window!
      • Face lots of spooky enemies and earn plenty of badges in this short trial that's only available during the Halloween Event!
      • Tip: Prestige costumes also count for the 'Tricked Out' badge criteria!


    Atlas Park Zone Makeover! https://homecoming.wiki/wiki/Atlas_Park_Seasonal_Changes#Halloween

    • During the Halloween Event, Atlas Park will get a spooky makeover! Enjoy the change of scenery while it lasts!


    Eternal Night!

    • For the last two weeks of the Halloween Event, starting on October 22nd, most zones will be covered by an eternal night!
      • If you're interested in hunting for enemies that only spawn at certain times of the day like the ghosts in Croatoa! This is a great chance to get those badges!


    That's everything for Halloween this year!

    We hope everyone has a grand & spooky time playing City of Heroes!

    ? Thanks Victory for being such awesome players! ?
