Problem Description
After rebooting my whole server today, I couldn't start my SinusBot anymore. It doesn't output anything, it doesn't do anything. As you can see below. I have the latest version of SinusBot and TeamSpeak3 + I have copied the latest plugin (libsoundbot_plugin.so) to the plugins folder.

I have also tried "sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade" and "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade".

//Edit, oh and I forgot to add. I tried a fresh new installation on a new server, didn't work.

English: The beta versions expire on a predefined date. This means you have to upgrade to the latest version, but by the looks of it, I think the latest version expired. @flyth can confirm this.

(From Google translate, someone please provide a better translation)
German: Die Beta-Versionen laufen zu einem vordefinierten Datum ab. Dies bedeutet, dass Sie auf die neueste Version aktualisieren müssen, aber durch die sieht es aus, ich glaube, die neueste Version abgelaufen ist. @flyth kann dies bestätigen.

Bei mir auch :/
Was kann man jetzt tun?
Ich habe mit scripts aus dem Forum und selbstgeschriebenen Scripts "einen Zentralen ServerBot" erstellt.
Dieser macht mit seinen 45 Scripts alles auf dem TS!
Was soll ich ohne den machen?


With the latest version 0.9.8 you couldn't use any scripts and the beta is expired.
Somebody need to fix the beta version, I need also the scripts! :D
I ran into the same issue and some further testing confirms that the problem is related with the expiration of the current beta.
The tests were done with version, which is currently the latest available beta according to the resources section.

sinusbot immediatly exits with no error message when system time is set to 2016-10-29 21:04:26 UTC (timestamp 1477775066) or later.
For now the only workaround I've found is to manually set the system time to 2016-10-29 21:04:25 or earlier just before starting sinusbot.

For instance:
sudo date --set '2016-10-29 21:04:25' && ./sinusbot

Unfortunatly, this can't be applied on our production server because of the potential impact on the other services.

As we are not using custom scripts I've tried downgrading to 0.9.8 but this version seems plagued with the "TSClient quit" bug (https://github.com/flyth/ts3soundbot/wiki/Installation---Debian-&-Ubuntu-(v0.9.8)) and the described workarounds didn't work. Or this comes from compatibility issues with the latest TS3 client.

Thank you for looking into this quickly as production is currently interrupted.
