Well, it appears we were the victim of a targeted attack. Steps have been taken to closely monitor the situation.

 

Unfortunately, we couldn't restore everything lost in the Downloads section. We lost about the last 8 days.

 

For those authors affected, please check your uploads list, as some entries are still intact, without the content.

 

I'll be watching things closely. If you have any questions or problems, please post here.

 

Thank you, and my apologies for the interruption.

Should be there now. Please check again. Some of the category visibility permissions were altered.

You mean they actually got into our stuff and deleted things?

I'm uploading my tables that are missing...


Edited by jpsalas, 21 August 2023 - 03:46 AM.

These are my tables, sorted by date, all them playable with VPX 7 or newer:

After 18 years making tables, it is time to take a rest and let new authors do their thing.

I guess at last I'll play some more pinball :). But I'm sure I'll make some table updates from time to time :)

As it seems i have a number of things to upload, i think i am going to hold off
See exactly what all i need to restore, and go through them one by one and do a physics / 10.8 lighting / artwork where possible / etc update on everything
and then mass upload them.

Odd thing is, I did not upload them within the last 8 days
So i dont actually know when they may have gone missing

It could be a permission issue. What category would these be in?

I have around 5000 downloads and a few hundred reviews plus one update missing, all from the last week, but the rest seems intact.

Good to see it mostly back online. I'm sure that one day someone will make a documentary about the trials and tribulations of the Virtual Pinball world  :/

Hi Noah

 

FYI - I noticed I am not seeing a few topper videos I created a long time ago.  I believe it is just a permissions issue as when I go to Downloads > Frontend Media & Backglass > Topper Images I get a message saying I don't have permission.


Check out my website for any latest updates or information on current builds that I am working on.

Yep. Still having some issues. We'll resolve it as soon as possible.

 

The section is currently offline for maintenance.

 

My apologies for the disruption.
