Character List

Postby cael » Wed Jan 04, 2017 7:03 am

Hi,

I'm back after a 6-7 year hiatus and lost my spreadsheet on a busted computer that had all my characters. I'm able to recall some of the character names, but I am pretty sure I'm missing a few lvl 30+'s that should have survived auto-delete. Is there a way for imms to search player files for my email that was linked to the characters via the old forums, or even a common last name that I shared between characters?

Thanks,
BJ

Current immortals cannot check for players' characters via email. We can use IP traces, but the time frame of 6-7 years is usually too long for that info to still remain or for us to connect known characters and trace unknown ones.

You can shoot me a message listing the names of your known characters though, and I can cross reference to see if there were ever notes on those characters that might refer to your unknowns.

If the hard disk still functions you can put it in another PC as a second drive, then read the files. If the disk's connections are incompatible with your equipment, if one of the machines is a laptop, or if you'd just really rather not open the case, there are USB cables available that have all the right connections.

If anyone knows how to access caches etc. or has the archive of the old website or forums (ahah or knows how to navigate the Dark web :) )

There was once access to a list that said EVERY character creation and its creation date.

I've failed to find it 4-5 times, but browsing through that might work to remind you.

Also I really want to see it!

I know neither of those things, but if I remember correctly the only list available was the one that was connected to the old forums. Those are unfortunately inaccesible due to the robots.txt file of the page (not that I have any clue to what that is).
