Over the past few days i had a nice work flow on the upcoming Dreams of Luisa story “Wicked Game”. Today i was just in the middle of one of the non-sex scenes when suddenly my Sexvilla game crashed. Oops.
Well, it didn’t really crash, it virtually just stopped working. The program switched to the main menu where some buttons simply disappeared. After a restart i couldn’t log in anymore. WTF?
When you run Sexvilla for a couple of hours it often happens that it crashes due to ram overflow. That’s the reason i save my scene every minute or so. But today i figured out that the game crashed because of a broken internet connection.
One of the worst aspects, one of the most hated “features” of 3D Sexvilla 2 is that it requires a constant online connection to thriXXX’s servers. That’s a bad manner that forces people to connect to the internet for playing. It’s bad bad bad for many reasons.
Since my internet connection is still working i learned that the thriXXX servers went off today. While i’m writing this, they are down for about 3 hours. That’s fucking long and i started to think about the reasons.
You know what? I think thriXXX has been Ddos’ed! Something like that…
Since not only the game servers but also all thriXXX websites are off, even their affiliate network (!!!), an attack is most likely.
Now my theory. Imagine it’s only a theory and i don’t want to blame anybody. But i was wondering about who could be the force behind a probable ddos-attack against thriXXX?
Well. I noticed a little while ago that the website of the Sexvilla Crack shut down. The domain doesn’t exist anymore. I guess thriXXX just managed to shut down the hacker’s pages, like they did before a couple of years ago (if the rumors are true).
Now the hackers strike back! I think that’s happening right now. But again, only my evil theory.
In fact, if i’m right, i don’t like the hackers. They took software, cracked it and told everybody it’s their own “free” product. Of course, cracked software is never free. Somebody developed it, somebody paid for it.
I understand that most hackers think it’s a kind of sport to hack other developer’s code. But if they get caught and lose the race, why can’t they be sporting about it? Go try again next time but don’t kill the referee (or attack servers).
On the other hand, i also believe that the best method for a company to protect its products from so-called piracy is to make the original even better in terms of price, service, features, support, community, everything. And don’t fucking give the hackers so much fucking attention!
But i didn’t want to discuss this very problematic topic here. I’m only a porn puppeteer. I still don’t know for sure if thriXXX has been ddos’ed and what not. So why the fuss?
Because the only thing i really do worry about is:
When can i fucking continue creating Dreams of Luisa? This off-time ruined my day!
So, if there are hackers responsible for this off-time for real: Stop it! Please. You have successfully demonstrated your abilities and everybody is impressed. Now stop it, relax and have a nice wank.
And thriXXX, think about an offline version of Sexvilla. The always-online mode doesn’t work as copyright protection anyway… that’s for sure, you know.
PS: Now, since i finished this post… the servers are back. But so far no official information has been provided :\
PS 2: The officials say servers had an unscheduled downtime due to technical problems. Well, that can mean everything ;)
