View Full Version : New trials is all 1* again

Yet again, the ratings arent updating properly in the new trials feed and everything in their is one start with no chance of getting into the 48hr feed until it updates. Might be nice to see that happen pretty soon, otherwise a bunch of people could miss the feed and start complaining baout it and re-releasing everything a 2nd time. That is of course assuming that once it updates it has recorded the ratings anyway.

Any idea as to what causes this? What can be implemented to prvent it? And how long it is likely to take to update/be corrected?

Well, its now been broken for 12hours. No tracks are having their ratings updated. Hopefully Monday morning will bring an answer, once everyone is back in the office......

Well, still not working correctly and still no answer from anyone. This is really disappointing, even a simple "we are looking into it" would be appreciated. But it seems like you are trying to ignore the problem and hope it goes away. Seems like players are more likely to go away than a persistent issue with the rating system not updating.....

Unfortuantly i find that it does work .... but only get show visually after 48h, which is a bit if a bugger as i tend to get messages sent to me like " nice track mate but wow only 18 ratings, why? "

If people are noticing this when they go into TC, they can only have the resonable thought "why is no-one" rating this track, there must be something wrong with it?" Thus hurting the chances of the track actually getting d/l`ed in the first place.

I do find it amazing that i can watch live tv via my xbox(realtime), send messages via xbox that arrive straight away to people on the otherside of the world(realtime), play a game from 1983 ( track n field ) which updates its LB`s immediatly(realtime) ... but my custom track details on TC are not in realtime??? Crazy !!!

This is more than likeley an issuse that Microsoft are causing due to poor server maintainence, but Red Lynx should be putting way way more pressure on them to sort this out!!(its only going to effect yourself in the long run .... Think battlefield3 & EA (i lose count the amount of people who sold the game after a week only to go and buy MWF2.5) I dont buy EA products anymore, theyve lost my trust .... and with lack of "anything" regarding this prob ..... Trials is going down the same route, sorry.

Thanks Shifty!

It would appear that the ratings are being recorded but that they are only updating once a day. Sometime between 4am and 11am UK time seems to be the pattern (it happens when I'm asleep, so I cant be more specific! :lol ). When I check new trials at around 12 midday to 1.00 it seems like there are tracks with ratings towards the bottom, but not higher up.

Not sure if this info is any help at all, but I figured it was better to mention it just in case. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/wink.gif

I've noticed this before but it was only local, anyone downloading the track gets the accurate ratings and downloads at the time of download. In order to get the correct data, I deleted my own tracks and redownloaded them from TC.

Not a perfect solution, but it worked.

This is getting ridiculous, TC is so messed up and the whole of the 48h feed is full of garbage (guessing because of the 1* issue) with nothing to play but floating objects and obstacles. I am guessing all the good track creators are holding out until its fixed.

Looks like different tracks are showing for different people? (Possibly). I don't see the "MY BEST TRACK" in the feed at all.
Yeah, I've got two tracks in the process, one just needs touching up and the other is near complete, but I have no intention of releasing them until it is fixed.

Thats good because we have all this time to make and impotantly polish the track,a polished track in all aspects of editing is a very good track and is rid of most of the minor problems so im going to polish it alot especially i lighting as ive got lots of lights. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon_cool.gif

Certainly seems that way. I've been turning trials off tbh as there is no way of finding a decent track to play and I'm bored of sp at the moment. Once I finished off my latest track, I realised there wasnt anything fresh to play and just turned it off. I suspect a lot of other people are doing the same thing. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/sad.gif

Wait a minute...Maybe this is all a genius plan from Redlynx! Think about it. Most good track creators are on these forums, and since they know the issue, they won't be posting their tracks. So the only tracks on TC will be garbage. And the people who created those tracks will see their tracks rated one star, and either stop building or improve.

On top of that, when the issue is fixed, we'll have a huge backlog of good tracks people were holding off on releasing. So we get a few days of amazing trials tracks, and less crap in the long run.

Didn't mean anything by it. I'd love to think your case wins out, but I just tried to put myself in the mind of a terrible track maker and I don't think they will care enough to actually improve their tracks. They think their tracks ARE great. "If other people don't like it they must be stupid. My track is fun so who cares about decoration." etc...

If they were going to put in the time to do it right, they would be doing it already. I can't see a broken TC fixing that. It won't show them HOW their track is terrible. Anyway, just my opinion, so don't take it personally. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/smile.gif

I very much doubt it will be fixed over the weekend, so it looks like at least another 48hrs without it on top of the last 60hrs and the rest of last week when it updated once a day. Its becoming quite a serious issue now, if I had something else to play I wouldn't be on trials at all right now tbh. Makes me wonder how many people DO have something else to play and have "left" the game.

It seems like this problem has escalated to the extent that it is now very hard to load a feed, search by gamertag and download a track. At this rate, TC wont even be working at all by the end of the week. It seems like this has become a major problem and could end up being very serious unfortunately.

Hopefully its a temporary server issue, but I have no idea. I'd love to hear some more info from the RL guys as to what the actual problem is and what steps may/will be taken to correct it and prevent it from happenig in future.

I am getting really sick of playing Pier Pressure and Titan Graveyard and all the other single player tracks. The only tracks that I can find are the ones made by people on my Friends List.
I have a question also about what gets in the 48hr feed right now. The feed changes but there is obviously no ratings. And I looked and the New Trials and 48hr feeds are different. Is it just picking the worst named tracks to put in so there isn't even a chance to see a half way decent track every once in a while.

Right. The 48 hour trials feed appears to show the oldest tracks at the top of the list and as they fall off of the 48 hour time frame, they disappear from the list. That's what it looks like to me at least.

Like Shifty said earlier.

We’re aware that the servers are not currently updating ratings and download statistics in Track Central. We are working closely with Microsoft to restore this functionality as quickly as possible, and hope to be able to restore full functionality soon.

We apologize for the inconvenience, and thank you for your patience.

Everyone is getting angry at Redlynx, but I would bet money it's a problem at the Microsoft end. Which would also explain the secrecy about what's wrong, Microsoft would undoubtedly have a contract clause in place so programmers cannot reveal problems/errors to the general public.

Its clear that the issue is being looked into, so I figured a bit of light relief was called for! lol

I figured the issue was fixed when I saw ratings in the 48 hour and new trials feeds so I released my latest track. It got 6 ratings, then nothing. All new trials tracks are 1* again and nothing has counted for nearly 24 hours.

Everyone is getting angry at Redlynx, but I would bet money it's a problem at the Microsoft end. Which would also explain the secrecy about what's wrong, Microsoft would undoubtedly have a contract clause in place so programmers cannot reveal problems/errors to the general public.

Makes sense!

Apart from [finally] making the Xbox [that worked] (second or third time lucky at getting one that didn't red ring), MS has little respect from me. Something can get too big...(look at EA).

Hey guys, here's an update on the server situation. The MS team now has a solution for the issue and they are working on getting the update out as soon as possible. The fix, however, needs a server update which requires them to proceed carefully to avoid any loss of data or service.

It's possible this could be resolved over the weekend, but it may take until early next week. They're doing their best and hoping you understand that it's better to take the time and get it right then accidentally lose some data.

There's no need to stop rating tracks, all the rating and download data is being saved and the problem is only related to processing this data to the aggregated metadata fields .

Thanks for your patience!

Update from the MS and RL teams:


We have made an update that addresses some of the issues that were preventing user ratings and download tallies from being recorded. Both are now being calculated for player-created content and new items being added to the system.

Meanwhile, all ratings and downloads that happened during the downtime are being slowly calculated and added to the system. This latter phase may take a little extra time, so please bear with us for the next couple of days as we get the remaining data sorted.
