CortexRP.com has sustained a direct hit to the starboard bow

User avatar

Unfortunately, due to recent events, CortexRP.com has sustained a direct hit to the starboard bow and is currently taking on water. We urge all forum members to lean to the left in order to help stabalize the board.

Our engineers are currently working on this problem day and night, and we hope to have a resolution before we all die.

Thank you for your continued patience and support!

TheBlackMage abandons ship.

Update: Upon further investigation, it appears we imagined everything.

Good news! Patch 2.0 is finally here, with support for groups, clans, and a UI that looks absolutely incredible compared to the original Wings of Liberty design!

Heart of the Swarm is only a few weeks away, and it looks like only good things lie ahead.

Intermittent Outages: 10/30/2012

User avatar

Hey guys,

CortexRP.com is currently experiencing intermittent site outages at this time. Unfortunately, some of our networking providers in the New York metro area are having problems and this is resulting in some traffic just not being routed properly. At this time, the datacenter running the site is on generator backup, however, everything on our end is 100% operational.

Will update with additional details as they become available.

If you're in the path of hurricane Sandy, please stay safe. :)

Update (10/30/12 3:34 PM EST): The outages appear to be over at this time. To give you guys an idea of how we were affected, our monitoring system detected a total of 180 mini-outages over the past 24 hours. The datacenter is now returned to utility power at this time.

Cortex 2.1.1 released!

User avatar

Hello everyone,

I've updated the Cortex Engine to resolve a number of problems that became apparent in Patch 1.5. Blizzard changed the way a number of natives work with less-than-ideal results.


  • Temporarily disabled smart hostile AI due to Blizzard AI changes.

  • Added StringTo<X> type conversion checks on some common used commands due to exceptions being thrown now.

Upgrading your map is extremely simple, simply replace the core Cortex Engine files, and update your map's version of the Cortex Toolkit to the latest version, which fixes AI dependencies.

You can download the latest Cortex Engine here.

Emergency Maintenance in Progress (Updated 5:50 PM)

User avatar


I've just been notified by our automated monitoring system that the server which houses CortexRP.com currently has a failing hard disk in it's RAID array. We've scheduled remote hands at our Matawan, NJ datacenter to take the server offline at 11 PM EST tonight to swap out the failing disk and replace it with a new one.

Once that's complete, we'll begin the process of rebuilding our RAID array, during which period the site may run in a degraded state.

I'll update this post with more information as it becomes available.

Update 10:07 AM EST: The new drive is in place and we are currently rebuilding the array.

Code: Select all

Rebuild Status : 1% complete
State : clean, degraded, recovering
Active Devices : 1
Working Devices : 2

    Number   Major   Minor   RaidDevice State
       0       8        1        0      active sync   /dev/sda1
       2       8       17        1      spare rebuilding   /dev/sdb1

Update 10:55 AM EST: The rebuild is well underway at this time, we expect full RAID capabilities to be restored in approximately 6-7 hours.

Update 5:50 PM EST: The rebuild is 85% complete at this time, and we're continuing to monitor it's progress.

Update 7:50 PM EST: The rebuild is completed and all services are running normally at this time.
