MD Gacha Machine – old versions retirement

So, that time has finally come.

Soon I am going to retire several old versions of my MD Gacha Machine. Below, you will find all the necessary info:

  • Which products are going to be retired?
    • MD Gacha Machine Script
    • MD Gacha Machine
    • MD Gacha Machine (MESH)
    • MD Gacha Machine (MESH #2)
    • MD Gacha Machine Script for Events
  • Which versions of the above products are going to be retired:
    • version 1.5.0, released on 2014-12-03
    • version 2.0.0, released on 2015-03-18
    • version 2.1.0, released on 2015-05-07
    • version 2.1.1, released on 2015-07-23
    • version 2.1.2, released on 2015-07-29

    • version 2.3.1, released on 2015-11-15
    • version 2.3.6, released on 2015-12-06
    • version 2.4.0, test version, never publicly released
  • When this will happen? 
    • the old versions retirement will start on April 1st, 2018
  • Why are you doing this?
    • the versions listed above are old: they still run on the old server and use ‘old’ code, which relies on obsolete technology. For this reason and in order to keep improving the quality of my work, I cannot afford anymore to maintain the back-compatibility with those versions using such an old technology.
  • What will happen from the retirement day?
    • all the machines – new and existing – running one of the above versions will stop communicating with the server. This will have mostly three effects:
      • all the machine’s feature relying on the server will stop working;
      • no data will be stored on the server anymore, so new machines and new transactions will not be shown on MD Labs Online Services website;
      • it will be impossible to interact with the machines through the MD Labs Online Services website;
  • What should I do to avoid all this?
    • Simple: update your machines. For doing this you will need the updated version of the product (script or machine); you can receive the updated version simply clicking on the “update” button from one of your machines (owner menu>update) or through the redelivery terminal at MD Labs in-world store. Once obtained the updated version, simply replace the machine or replace the script (depending on what product you are updating); and yes, the replace has to be done manually.


Once the older versions will be retired I will NOT offer support anymore for those machines, so please update in time to avoid any issues.

Please contact me in-world if you need any help before the retirement day.
