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."

yep that would be the error I was getting on both of them

Couldn't find anything wrong on this end, but tests from outside were showing it as down, so I gave the machine a restart. Should be operational again.

Please note, the port list in the first post has changed slightly.

Cool!  Thanx Steve and can we get an updated port list then?

Hi there, sorry to bother you with that, but the game is really lagging in 2347 for 35.27. It's the second time a friend and I are playing and twice it has been lagging like a dead donkey pulled by the tail by a five year old kid.

Are we doing something wrong ??

Thanks for your efforts, for setting up the servers, it's really appreciated :) !

Yeah. best thing to do, if you find an abandoned game is to save it something like Player1Player2_Date.sav and then reset it

That way, if need be, the saved game can be restored, and you can reset the server

As I've noted in the initial post as well, if you need to get ahold of me for server issues or just wanna talk BT Stuff, I've registered #battletech on the espernet IRC network.

you can get there in a browser through http://webchat.esper.net/ and once connected, /join #Battletech

or, if you have an IRC client, the server is irc.esper.net, the port is 5555, 6667, or 7000, or 6697 for SSL

Will be shutting down a couple of the server instances in the near future, in anticipation of shifting the servers to a different machine while I do some maintenance and possibly upgrades.  I've marked the ones slated for shutdown in the first post.  There may be some total downtime involved as well, I'll try to minimize that.

35.28 will probably be added when the main server comes back up. The ports will likely be different at that time, check back here.

I'm getting a bit miffed about not being able to preview maps outside of a tiny minority. Could anyone tell me where I can find all the maps on the server for download?

http://restless.mechadynamics.net/megamek/ is where I put archives of megamek with all the stuff I add to it. You COULD download it and just extract the maps.

Steve, once 0.35.31 comes out upgrade the .30 server quickly. It has several critical bugs in it... especially relating to AeroSpace Fighters and Dropships.

Not really. Basically for the past 2 releases Bee has done them once we get a huge changelog. This has made them a lot closer together than other releases in recent time due to how I've been slamming out code... which I've slowed down some recently because life has been interfering ;)

So we'll see. :)

Alright, well, I'll be keeping a weather eye.  I know bugfixes are important too, but I'm always far more excited about a new upgrade, and more likely to jump on it when it adds features :D Especially ones I've desired for some time. Should have seen my glee when it finally added Hardened Armor.

If by "pretty far" you mean "horrifically", then yes, it's pretty far out of date.

I salvaged some RAM that I'd like to put into the server, so I'd expect some server downtime in the near future. Just trying to decide when I should do it.
