Can't connect

Post by Hammer on Sun Aug 25, 2013 8:32 am

I can't connect to any of the FBY servers that I tried this morning.  Just to be sure it wasn't me, I tested a connection to NoobsForever and was able to connect and play there.

I just tested them and I can connect to all of them. Looks like they are all empty though. What message are you getting when you can't connect? Are you on windows or ubuntu? If ubuntu can you try windows?

I CAN connect to every one of the servers. They are all working.

Do you guys use patch 2.60b? It seems that everyone with version 2.55 has problem connecting.

Yes, I just tested it on 2.55 "Could not load official pak (...)".


The fix is to patch it to 2.60b or reinstall the game with this:

It's just for Windows users though.

Strange, our server version of ET should work with both 2.55 and 2.60b

Im sure there are others with the same problem. They probably think the server is just down. Maybe put 2.60b patch needed on the server name for a while. For the players that do not run the latest updates. Most will update to be able to get on the servers.

Yeah everyone was just playing on the old servers and ignoring the new ones. Three people reported a problem out of maybe 200 regular players half of whom play from 2.55.

Now they will all be crying to fix the problem because they can't spend two minutes updating their ET installation.

I will make a 2.55 version of Beginner and we will just have two Beginner servers one on each masterlist. I just got the 2.60 running awesome and the last thing I want to do is mess it all up by running 2.55 inside of it. I am thinking that was what our old provider had done and was probably a big part of why we crashed so much and always had lag. Not sure as I have no way to go check the old servers, plus they were running on linux so the files are all different anyway.

Oh well now we will have less annoying players.

I am running 2.60 on Ubuntu.  I was able to connect and play on Beginner and Minas (on new servers) last night and earlier in the week.

"What message are you getting when you can't connect? Are you on windows or ubuntu? If ubuntu can you try windows?"

I don't get a message, it just kicks me back to the menu.  I'm connecting from the master list, not the menu. 

I'm running the client from Ubuntu 12.04LTS.  I don't have a Windows ET installation but will give it a try later today (my machine is dual-boot with Win7).

I feel a bit foolish now, a reboot fixed the problem.  In my defense, the fact that I could connect to other servers made me think the problem was outside of my system. 

I looked back thru my log from last night and today.  I found a difference in a section of the startup that I see in my logs while connecting.  The first clip below is a successful connection last night and the second is an unsuccessful connection today.  For some reason my system was not finding a library file that it could find a few hours earlier.  Anyways, all is well now.



LAST NIGHT

"I will make a 2.55 version of Beginner and we will just have two Beginner servers one on each masterlist."

Since the true fix is simple, upgrade the client, I hope your fix is a temporary measure.

The problem is that we now have to hack the server some more to make it run on both lists, with God-knows what problems introduced into the currently perfectly-functioning system.

There are at least five different hacks out there to make a dual-listed server accessible by both 2.55 and 2.60 clients, apparently the one we are using only provides dual-masterlisting, so the server appears on both lists, but not actual connectivity for 2.55 clients. So they can see it but not connect.

So it's useless, worse than useless actually, because I thought it was working and I did not focus on this problem BEFORE we shut off the old servers.

ET players have had since 2006 to upgrade to ET 2.60. Half of them are still on 2.55 and refuse to upgrade. Some don't know, most don't care. They are like babies who need the spoon put in their mouth for them to eat.

I think I figured out a workaround. It's a Rube Goldberg machine at its finest but it might work.

Apparently our problems with people not being able to connect if they are using the 2.55 version are already reported by other admins:

http://forum.trackbase.net/archive/index.php/t-1288.html

I like how they don't help the guy fix the problem, they just lock the thread to shut him up.
