xx Last day of the year and .. server! UGGG

I been beating my head on the wall from Sunday to now... We can't get into the server at all. Odd thing though, others CAN! Go figure. I'll go into the details of what the problem is later in this post but first here is what we are gonna do for this venge day.

I'm hosting the dining room as normal. That is the evil bot driven server that admins (and players can vote) can set up to their liking and change maps and such. "The peoples server" if you will. That is all well and fine for you guys. I am also hosting a server called "We cant get in..." This is a non dedicated server just like I use in tournaments. For some odd reason, that server works FINE. Spiff and I tested it out a few nights ago. Don't know why it works but it does. So here is whats up, you can either play in the dining room normally or hang out with us in our own private server. lol. I can still talk to you guys in the dining room so when we are up I'll shout at ya. When we leave (go mia -whatever) you can return to the dining room where you can take control of the server in all its uber awesomeness.



And now the problems! angry


Nothing changed at all, ever. I never updated, changed any programs or changed settings in the router for this to happen. All I know is last Wednesday it worked fine. We could connect to server then on Sunday I rebooted the computer, scanned, defragged blah blah blah (all normal procedure) and found out we couldn't even SEE the server. I assumed that NO ONE could see the server and began doing high tech stuff. You know, like jiggling the wires and unplugging the router. rolleyes After this normal session I started the server again and we could see it this time! But... we couldn't connect! "Cannot connect to server, server may have quit or having network problems" At this time my jaw hit the floor as I found out it was filling up with people! They could get in! We couldn't! I said then I would work for 30 minutes or so and see if I could fix it before giving up. (Was our 7 year wedding anniversary.. didn't want to spend too much time worrying about the dumb thing when it worked for you guys) I figured it was some dumb and simple problem and gave up. I thought I would have it fixed before Wednesday.... Well... that tiny simple dumb problem is a lot worse than I thought. I've since re-wrote my ports in the router,checked various logs of bans (wasn't any) and firewall protocols... nothing adds up! I have 2 installs of Venge, on for the dedicated server and one I play with. The one I play with has the mekpaks on it and I only host with that version when I host a tournament. NOT SET UP FOR DEDICATED. Well this version wont connect to our server at all! But when I host with it... it works! shocked Only other thing I can think of noting is that when in the lobby for zone (which there is none, duh) where I can see the server, I always see 2 servers. One called "TCP" where I can see it is on the same LAN as us and we can get in that way. And we also see the IP version (I keep it in there so I can tell if our ip changes and server doesn't show up) The IP server shows up now.... BUT NOT THE TCP ONE! After tonight I am going to back up some files and do a system restore. If that doesn't work then I guess all format the damn drive and start all over again.

Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hey Chris....In the server window when you go to multiplayer, set up a new connection...Select "new" then go to next...Then select Lan...hit next...select "modem" for connection type....select "56k" for connection speed...(WPPC server and game paly runs best at this speed)...on the next screen select the "server name" box and it will open another field that you type in the server name.....type in : wppc.servegame.org and hit next...name the connection WPPC...You should be able to connect to the wppc server then....We get on about 9pm est but sometimes it may be a little bit later, but a good crew will show up..That should work but if it doesnt, type in the ip in the field that you have wppc.servegame.org...that ip is:
68.118.95.172

Hey man! <S>

Tried all that too, and for the record. The Current server IP is:
24.159.156.243

If your not going to use the wppc.servegame.org addy.
Works fine for everyone else!
BAH! lipsrsealed

does anyone at least play half life 2 deathmatch?
how about enemy territory quake wars? <---FUN!!!
i also play the new wolfenstein, but the multiplayer part has bombed out big time with so many and as well as i have team fortress 2, but havent been playing much of that lately.
i still tried to see what i could so with connecting to the venge server and still no luck.
well for steam and quake wars if anyone has at least those, my ID is tatude1972 so add me as a friend on those.
but i am surprised that no one from mektek has come up with a solution to continue playing venge and black knight like mercs, for it would be a good idea since they are all M4 games.

MekTek is planning to convert all the Veng/BK campaigns in MP4 I believe. The Vengeance game engine is one that cannot be converted or changed. Has something to do with C-dilla. They cannot do anything with Veng except transfer the campaign.
The new mekpaks are featureing a change in Mercs so that all mechs and weapons can be used in the campaign. Also, they are doing away with the "correct CD in drive," thing. The games will be a ready to play download with no CD. Download and install with their new MTX downloader/installer. Works beautifully.

Server is up but your ports are not open yet. I just did mine to see if it would work (got sick of writing the whole ip list thing)

So is anyone around and can anyone even see the server? cry
