We are pleased to inform you that based on Community feedback, we decided to officially give our clients possibility to downgrade Atavism On-Premises Ultra (Unlimited CCU) license.
Atavism On-Premises Ultra (Unlimited CCU) owners can downgrade license by choosing one of two license variants which we prepared:
- Atavism On-Premises Professional (3000 CCU) + Atavism On-Premises Standard (20 CCU)
- Atavism On-Premises Advanced (500 CCU) + Atavism On-Premises Standard (20 CCU)
So generally it can be exchanged for 2 licenses, depending on your choice, but the Standard license is included in both options.
In order to submit such request Atavism On-Premises Ultra (Unlimited CCU) owner should send us an email which should contain:
- E-mail on which Atavism On-Premises Ultra (Unlimited CCU) license was registered.
- Atavism On-Premises Ultra (Unlimited CCU) license key.
- Pack of licenses (1 or 2) to which downgrade should be proceded.
Above information should be sent to email@example.com.
Such downgrade is permanent and it won't be possible to revert it back.
Downgrade option is a one-time limited offer, it's free and can be done from now on until the end of April 2018.
We have hope that such initiative will let you continue your journey with Atavism and it's development process.
It is possible to increase number of CCU by paying price difference between current Atavism OP version and new preferred Atavism OP version.
To submit such request Atavism On-Premises owner should send us an email which should contain:
- E-mail on which Atavism On-Premises license was registered.
- Atavism On-Premises license key.
- Select new amount of CCU.
Above information should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If You are experiencing error "1067 Invalid default value for..." then most likely You are using mysql 5.7 or newer. It's related to default timestamp fields value, which is set to "0000-00-00 00:00:00" but newer version mysql allows to use minimal date since 1970y. In that case try to execute this statement which should allow to use invalid dates.
or put or replace that line into /etc/my.cnf config file under [mysqld] section
CCU is a short name for Concurrent Connected User.
This value tells how many users can be connected to Atavism server at this same time.
Atavism OP 2018 comes in 4 CCU versions:
- Atavism Starter that offer 20 CCU - its best for started developing new game.
- Atavism Advanced that offer 500 CCU - ideal for developers that have finished initial development and need run volume tests, or their game will allow up to 500 concurrent users at this same time.
- Atavism Professional that offer 3000 CCU - this version is best for busy MMO game that more than 90% time need more than 500 concurrent active users.
- Atavism Ultra that offer Unlimited number of CCU (active users).
If you have Atavism OP Standard (20 CCU) you will need Atavism Standard Maintenance Plans.
If you have Atavism OP Advanced (500 CCU) you will need Atavism Advanced Maintenance Plans.
If you have Atavism OP Professional (3000 CCU) you will need Atavism Professional Maintenance Plans.
If you have Atavism OP Ultra (Unlimited CCU) you will need Atavism Ultra Maintenance Plans.
Each type of licenses have 4 Atavism Maintenance Plans (AMP).
If you are still not 100% sure what Atavism Maintenance Plann you need please contact with email@example.com
Please keep in mind that Atavism Maintenance Plan is backcovering for skipped time (counted from: 27th March 2018 but up to 180 days back), for example if you are Atavism 2.x. owner and you would like to get access to new versions and you purchase 30 days Atavism Maintenance Plan in 1st April 2018, it will backcover your skipped 5 days and extend acces to updates by 25 days.
Atavism Maintenance Plan is a dependant product and can be only assigned to your Atavism On-Premises License to extend its permission to update for the specific period of time. Keep in mind that each Atavism On-Premises License has its specific Atavism Maintenance Plans which are suitable for the license, so to extend your Atavism On-Premises Advanced License you should choose one of the Atavism Advanced Maintenance Plan (30, 90, 180, 365 days) and accordingly for other licenses.
All Atavism On-Premises 2.x licenses were set to have valid Atavism Maintenance Plan on the day of release new Atavism 2018.1, which was 27th March 2018.
If you are Atavism 2.x license owner and you will extend its validation time by assigning Atavism Maintenance Plan to the Atavism On-Premises License, then the number of days for specific Atavism Maintenance Plan will be added to your License but will be counted from 27th March 2018, and it will back cover the time up to 180 days. so if you will extend your Atavism License 30th of March 2018 for 30 days, your License will have rights to updates until 26th April 2018 (30 days since 27 March 2018). The same rule will be applied if you will skip few months of updates and you will want to continue it after a while. Then the time from your assigned Atavism Maintenance Plan will be consumed accordingly but not more than 180 days, even if you skipped more than that.
All Atavism 2.x License Owners remain their licenses and rights to use Atavism 2.x.
If you are willing to upgrade your Atavism License to new Atavism On-Premises 2018 License then check our Atavism Maintenance Plans which will give you an ability to use new features and get access to upgrades. If you have Atavism 2.x Ultra license then read "What if I would like to downgrade my license" section.
Each Atavism On-Premises 2018 License includes Atavism Maintenance Plan for 180 days, so each new license has rights to updates within 180 days counted from the day of purchase.
