Hi everyone. I gotta be real with you here, I’m not really sure just how much I can help with this problem.
Roblox’s datastores are painfully unreliable. It’s something that I have been fighting very strongly since I started my internship at Roblox and up until the day I left. callmehbob, the creator of Royale High, even reached out to me about datastore issues with Roblox and I connected her to Roblox staff.
Here’s a graph of datastore failures:
This is every time a Vesteria server told Roblox they wanted to save a player’s data and Roblox said haha NOPE not happening.
Here’s what I’ll try do to next update to combat these errors:
- Alert players when an automatic data save has failed
- Prevent players from teleporting to another map if their data failed to save.
However, this still might not help if you leave the game while Roblox datastores are getting hit hard. It’ll only prevent data loss between teleports.
I’m really annoyed and frustrated that this even is an issue, but I’ll try to get it fixed.
