Cannot Play Game

Post by eddy999999 » 16 Feb 2008, 04:50

I downloaded and installed the game today, but when I start it up, it says

Updating... news.txt (0%)

After a while, it says

The update process is incomplete. It is strongly recommended that you try again later. Callback aborted

The Play button also becomes active, but when I click it, I get the error:

ItemDB: Could not find items.xml!

What do I do?

Just try later or download the updates manually.

Anyway updates download should hardly fail, are you maybe behind a proxy or this sort of stuff?

I get the same problem, i downloaded it yesterday night and tried it today, it began as Updating... news.txt (0%) and then after a while it jumped to about halfway and did exactly as eddy said, with the can't find items.xml and all.

EDIT: This was posted in FEBRUARY and there hasn't been a solution yet?

EDIT2: How stupid of me! After my years of playing moparscape, I should have realised... my firewall -.-

Did you manage to compile tmw under msys? If not then I guess this one does not belong to windows support.

Anyway can you browse to http://updates.themanaworld.org/news.txt ?

If so are you maybe behind a proxy/nat?

##3 Strange stones appeared and pass cleared
##3 15/04/2008

##0 In other news: The pass to the southeast of the

##3 Fast attack bug fixed, gameplay changes
##3 07/04/2008

##0 This weekend a fix was applied for the bug that
##0 allowed you to attack with light-speed with
##0 several weapons. We understand this changes
##0 gameplay quite a bit, and as a result the game
##0 will probably need to be adjusted. The existence
##0 of this bug has effectively prevented us from
##0 ever being able to balance the gameplay
##0 properly.

##0 Please stay with us and allow us some time to
##0 make the necessary adjustments. Suggestions are
##0 welcome!

##3 The Mana World 0.0.24 released

##0 new quests, new items and a lot of little
##0 surprises. Enjoy!

##3 The Mana World 0.0.23 released
##3 04/06/2007

##0 was also made.

##3 Soulless characters deleted and money cut
##3 21/01/2007

##0 A long time ago we have allowed characteres to
##0 sell their soul in order to gain additional
##0 powers. They were explicitly warned that they
##0 would be eventually deleted. This time has now
##0 come.

##0 In addition, we have cut the fortune of
##0 anybody who had more than 10.000 GP.

##0 while to play again.
##0 Of course the next event will be delayed
##0 a bit. In the meanwhile feel free to

Maybe your browser is using a proxy that the client doesn't know about? In that case you'd have to make sure to set appropriate proxy environment variables.

(of course this post doesn't apply to Windows)
