RA1024's SERVER IS THE PLACE TO BE !!


Recommended Posts

There was a problem this morning with the machine the emperor server runs on.  It's a problem with the bios that keeps the machine from booting up during a restart.  I've fixed it once but it looks like the bios lost the patch somehow.  I think the server rebooted at some point due to all the storms we've had recently.

humm..  sounds like very coplicated  request . anyway who are you fedaykin i never saw u playing befor . in additon i find that the server is complicated enough as it is now and i recomend that ra should start  minimizing the function just in case he got tierd of all this stress i think  nothing rong with beeing simple speacialy if u are not getting paid for ure time and equipment.

  and a have a request lol.... ;D  ra  can u put a backround to the web??  i recomend gunwound

  to desing it......... it looks ugly with that black and white

fedakyn is an old player spicy....he hasnt played in awhile i think.

the white background is a little hard on the eyes.... maybe RA could do a simple change like making the background black and the font white/yellow.... that would be easier on the eyes.

  well not bad gun. or it can even be like the  dune2k.page

  hey scar i didnt see u replying on that guy  asking for a pager sound inside the game and a deffrent  sound  if the message was from the web..... i mean it sound so complicated

  i just  noticed that the web needs some cover its as simple as putting a desktop backround.

i was even telling ra that we can live without many of those server obtion he just seem to put

a lot of work in it.i mean xwis never added any thing and we were still ok there.

I checked and those nicks are available so you're probably not setup to go the server.

To test it, pull up a dos prompt ( start menu->run->"cmd" or start menu->run->"command").  In the dos prompt type "ping servserv.westwood.com" and press enter. 

If it says "reply from 72.17.137.93 or something similar, you're setup correctly and the problem lies elsewhere.  If it says "reply from 159.153.208.17", you're still pointing to WOL.  If it says "reply from 195.13.63.187" you're pointing to xwis.

If you're not pointing to the correct ip (72.17.137.93) then you'll want to check out Erjin's instructions here http://dune2k.com/forum/index.php?topic=15876.0 and go to step 4.  If you use method A, you'll need to change the ip from 195.13.63.187 to 72.17.137.93 as we don't play on that ip any longer.

Well spotted Ra, its now corrected. So if you do need to repoint your game to the correct server, just follow either Step 4 Method A or B (A is easier ;)).

Something is terribly wrong still!

Look, I post pics of what i'm doing...

Just a thought, because i'm not a 'Puter expert, but I remember something like this happening before, when Olaf required strong passwords. Is your server set up the same, Ra? Do you require strong passwords? Mine works fine, but it's the same Password I used on xwis.
