You open your eyes, it takes a second for your eyes to adjust to the bright light shining through your window. You're in your house, you can see everything you have which isn't a lot.
You put on your coat, head outside and make your way down town. You see a lot of different shops. The weapon store, tool shack, bank, employment office and many more. You feel at home here.
You hear someone call your name from behind you in a threatening manner. You turn around slowly to see one of your rivals approaching you ready to fight. You take a breath and then charge at them, smiling a little knowing that one day you will be the top dog of this town.
|Hosting Improvements||Wednesday 20th May 2015|
I've been informed that maintenance will be taking place on the servers hosting Gangta on the 11th June 2015 between 19:00-23:00 BST (GMT+1). This is going to result in some downtime during that time and it is expected to only last 60-90 minutes at the extreme.
The maintenance taking place is going to allow big improvements to be made to the performance of the site and will make development much easier for me as a result.
Gangta is currently running on PHP version 5.3. Version 5.3 and below are no longer supported by PHP.net. There are versions 5.4, 5.5 and 5.6 available for PHP now and those should be used by all websites that use PHP because of considerable performance and security improvements.
I will be making sure Gangta can run on at least version 5.5 with no issues and then once this server maintenance takes place I will be able to switch from version 5.3 to 5.5.
I won't start a new round until after this maintenance and PHP upgrade has taken place so that I can properly test the site before running a new round.
I have been looking at making a mobile optimised layout between rounds so that it will be much easier to use Gangta on mobile or tablet devices. I expect this to be an on-going task with the most popular features being mobile optimised first.
|Round 35 incoming||Saturday 14th February 2015|
After a long hiatus I am ready to start a new round. BlackDog pulled out another win and has gone undefeated for 6 rounds now. He also has the most rounds won throughout the entire history of Gangta! An impressive feat.
I've finished up a few change…show more
