    Today is a big day in the GTRacer.net history, a lot of code is changed to make it more stable and future proof!

    Big update of MySQL to MySQLi on the back-end!
    I can tell a long story about what is all changed, but that is to technical for most people that play this game.
    But when PHP was updated to the latest version 7.0 on the server we had a big issue that the game code was not compatible with it anymore...
    With a quick but dirty fix this was solved, but causing some other issues.

    So with help of @matthewmadics the code was updated to the new standard.
    I have done testing, but there where a few other issues yesterday late in the evening which got resolved as well.
    • User Drag Races - You could start but it wasn't visible
    • User Banner - Did not show anymore
    • And some other small bugs that where resolved on the go
    • New User Tutorial - Step 2 was working but had a bug - fixed (8-april-2017)
    • Shop Admin - Bug due to showing hack-attempt message - fixed (8-april-2017)
    As I promised I would give a short recap of what has been done:
    • 118 files where amended
    • Over 6500 lines of code was changed

    GTRacer.net future?
    Currently I have moved all open requests from the road map to the backlog.
    Basically because they where there a long time without making real progress.
    We want to hear your voice on what you want to see changed or added to the game.
    Then we will discuss this with the moderators and developers and then put it on the road map.
    So please let us know what features or changes you want to see and add them as detailed post into: https://forums.gtracer.net/forums/feature-requests.5/

    If you face any difficulties or problems, let us know!
