I assume the time change has to do with the DST or change in GMT timings?

I noticed that all the games are on hold.. Do the game hosts have to resume the game, or will SAH/Ron flip a "master-switch"?

Excuse the basic question.
No idea about what's going on, so asking.

I stopped SAH scripts for the time change. What you saw was (I hope) only a visual problem and did not affect actual game gen time. If I did not stop AutoHost during the time change, there would *definitely* be problems.

Found it while back-reading the archives.

Amazing the amount of information here.. It's like every question has already been asked :s

I've had games gen another turn an hour later after the time change, so I've gotten in the good habit of just stopping everything during the time change.

Necropost a decade later.

Had to refresh my memory on how SAH handles DST.
I remember that SAH pauses during the DST changeover and needs to be unpaused by Ron.
What I am fuzzy about is what happens to the gen timing post the unpause.
or I probably got confused as one gen happened before SAH paused with DST time changes... and I expected that time to be the standard for the next 6 months.

This is what happened:
My regular gen time was 5:30pm.
One gen happened at 6:30pm. SAH was then paused.
After the unpause, the next gen went back to 5:30pm Mad

Is that intended?
1. The gen timing going back to normal ( I assume yes)
2. That one gen happened with different timings (I'm assuming SAH paused late).

Not quite. This is the sequence of events as I understand it.

2510 genned at 1200 GMT (2300 my time, GMT +11).
Then Ron put all games on hold while SAH was restarted for a DST change; I restarted it immediately.
Then 2511 genned at 1300 GMT (0000 my time, GMT +11) <- this seems odd, in retrospect, as that would be SAH winding the clocks back rather than forward.
Then 2512 genned at 1200 GMT (2300 my time, GMT +11).

(I'm in Australia and have been on DST the whole time, hence the +11; we don't come off DST for another couple of weeks.)

I'm sorry that happened. I stopped SAH scripts and paused all games around 10pm my time (GMT -5 at that time), and didn't restart them until 10 or 11am the next day I believe. If needed, you can restore previous turn from backup.
