Unable to connect to server: Ubuntu 7.10 (Gutsy), svn 3984

Post by Sanga » 16 Mar 2008, 23:20

I had problems with the .deb package for Ubuntu Gutsy (It crashes intermittently), so I grabbed the latest from SVN and built the program.

configure went fine (had to install a few packages, and build enet from source, but nothing unusual), and make went without any errors.

The problem is that now when I start "tmw", I get to the "Choose your Mana World server" dialog box (the only option is "animesites.de" at port 9601), click the "ok", and then the program gets stuck in the "connecting" dialog box. The status bar keeps filling to the end and resetting, but nothing ever happens (note that the program is *not* hung - I can "cancel" out without any problem. It just doesn't connect).

It's also sucking up a significant amount of CPU while this is happening (about 38%), which doesn't make any sense if it's just waiting on a network connection.

Obviously, something is wrong. But I have not clue where to start troubleshooting this.

Please note that I'm a fairly proficient C/Unix programmer - suggestions beyond the "newbie" level are more than welcome.

Hello.
That server is down.
You can try playing at testing.themanaworld.org.

As you probably guessed from the server name it's meant only for testing the new client (https://themanaworld.svn.sourceforge.ne ... tmw/trunk/).
If you want to actually play the game I suggest that you get the old client from https://themanaworld.svn.sourceforge.ne ... nches/0.0/
and compile & install again.

Thanks for the info - switching to the testing server does get me connected (I suspected it was something simple...)

server.themanaworld.org can also do the trick

server.themanaworld.org and testing.themanaworld.org are the same server. The only difference is that 0.0.x and 0.1 use different protocols (TCP vs UDP) so there isn't any overlap.
