I have a provisional 35.23 server up, on 2349 but I haven't had time to do any preset-rules or maps on the instance. I'm still using 35.22 myself.

Thanks. Main draw of this version is the easier to use map setup (Tells you whether it's got maps in that on file or not) and most especially TRO 3085 units

BTW: The port 2346 seems to be malfunctioning at this time

Reset on 2346.

I'm thinking of redoing how I do my personal Megamek Package, but I have a dilemma.

the devs have seen fit to rename files to match the MUL, and for some reason the powers that be chose to name the MUL by IS Reporting Names for Clan Mechs. But all my customs are from the days when MM used the clan names for these mechs.

As far as my customs go, I seem to have 4 options:

1) stop using customs (unlikely)
2) rename all customs to match new naming scheme
3) copy all stock designs into my custom mechfiles zip, renaming them to match the proper names.
4) keep doing what I'm doing, which is just leaving things disorganized and entering mechset.txt info for the old names.

I'm also thinking of simplifying how I do my camos.

For camo files, you have to have the camo in the same place, on all clients. so if everyone has the same .zip full of camos, everyone sees it, or if everyone has the camos loose and uncompressed, everyone sees it. But, currently I have BOTH, for max compatability. I'm thinking of going with just one thing.

Thank you very much for these servers!  It helps my group and I play where we otherwise have lots of connection issues.

If we leave a game that wasn't completely finished, is the '/reset' command all we need to do to clear the board? I wasn't sure how to end a game that didn't actually meet the victory conditions.

Yeah, /reset will clear the board and bring you back to the lobby.

if you ever come to the server and there's an abandoned game there, if you save it as User_User_mmddyy.sav or some other easily identified format before you /reset it, it can then be reloaded if the owners ever want to come back for it.

Always glad to see its getting use :D

Got an additional connection today, so we've got some redundancy available too now. :)

To connect to my dedicated server, enter 'mechadynamics.net' for the server and consult the first post of this thread for the port I'm running the version you want to connect to.

To connect to a server you're running, he would enter your internet ip address. if the ip looks something like 192.168.x.x, 10.0.x.x or 172.16.0.x  then thats your internal IP address, and you'll have to find your external IP, and forward the port you're running MM on, to your internal IP, in your router's control panel

The easiest way to find your external IP would be to go to http://www.whatismyip.com/ which will show it at the top of the page.

For port forwarding, you will need to forward the port to your internal IP (the one that looks like 192.168.x.x, 10.0.x.x or 172.16.0.x).  http://portforward.com/ has guides that show how to set up port forwarding on a lot of different routers.

I go to whatismyip.com if I need to know what my external IP is. You'll need to provide this to your friend

to find your internal IP, hold the windows key and press R.  type 'cmd' into the box that pops up, hit ok.

To forward a port, you need to tell the router what port, and what the internal address of the computer that it should send traffic on that port to, is. The method of doing this varies by model of router.

Servers moved to a new IP for the  next week or so, while my roof is replaced. "mechadynamics.net" should still point there

I hope this isn't too much of a numbskull question, but when using the public server (thanks for the service!) how do you make sure you're playing against your friend? I didn't see any way to set up a game password, or to invite someone to a specific game.

Well, my servers are *JUST* dedicated server instances for vanilla megamek. You and your friend would arrange the game outside of megamek, and plan on meeting on a given port. my servers are open, first-come-first-serve, akin to the tennis courts at a park. if somebody's already using one, you can try another, or wait till one opens up. If all five or six that i have running are full, let me know. if it happens repeatedly, I may open more up. If the game appears to be abandoned, and no one is actually connected, /save the game in the format "player1_player2_mmddyy.sav" in case they want to reload it later, and you can use /reset to clear the abandoned game.

There's no matchmaking or inviting system, and no passwords on my dedicated servers.

No problem! I've tried to get people to gather in a chatroom for arranging battles before, but megamek players seem to have an aversion to IRC or something...

Have you implemented a server for version 35.25 yet? Just curious.

Thanks again for making your server available.

uhmmmmm......ok I know I haven't used MegaMek in quite a while but just tried to log in to Steve's Mechdynamics.net server with MM 34.9 and couldn't get in.  Error message kept popping up!  Is there an updated list of servers cause the last one I see on here is from January of last year.  Thanx!


-Katana

P.S.  Also just tried to connect using 35.26 on the server you posted for it.  Got the same message.  WTF?

As a general tech support rule, when you're reporting an error message, try to report what the error message was.  You didn't actually say what it was at any point.

On checking myself using 35.26 to connect to port 2346, I get this error: "Error: could not connect to server mechadynamics.net:2346."
