removed?
« on: October 03, 2017, 01:39:00 PM »
Hi Red Squirrel,

our shard "Sigena" (www.uosigena.de) doesn't appear in the shard-list, voting seems possible, but it's not registered in the "last polled" page and I don't know why it is like that. The shard is active and online though we were - so far - unable to let your site know our server is up and alive. I'd like to change this, but found only sphere-server comments. We run POL. Could you help us out, please?

Not familiar with POL, I wonder if it's using a different packet, could you verify that it's sending the packet outlined here: http://www.uogateway.com/forum/index.php/topic,4.0.html

This is the log if it helps.  Basically the poller is not getting the correct info back from the server.  It could be that it's not doing a null return on the string, I've seen that before.

Just a little update:
The poller sends a F1 packet. Pol uses F1 for the player-login and this seems to be unchangeable because it's in the pol-core. So we are pretty much unable to respond to the poller. Maybe there are workarounds, but we've tried what's within our skill.

That is odd.  I know there is another packet for stats, I forget what it is.   UOG uses an older one I believe, it's what I knew of at the time I coded it. 

Maybe check with Pol forums as there may very well be a work around already.  One of these days one thing I'd like to do is implement is a script that can be added to any emulator so I can support them all better.
