Account confusion

Post by Null » Tue Feb 24, 2009 3:06 am

Ok so , i've been playing for a few weeks now, and im really enjoying the game but i have encountered a problem.

i HAD been playing on a windows OS due to issues with my main computer. Now that its fixed i have trouble with the log in screen when i enter the game.

It tells me my password is wrong, but this cant be because it still works when i go back to my windows version of the game.

Are linux and windows seperate worlds or ?? i just want to access my current char, not make a new one .

No, all operating systems use the same server: server.themanaworld.org

Please make sure that this is what the "host:" field reads when you log in.

Also make sure that you didn't accidently install the client for the unfinished new server (0.1.0) instead of the version for the current official server (0.0.28.1).

version is 0.0.26 or w.e .

And its got the correct info in that area also ,server.themanaworld.org or w/e .

It kept telling me the password was wrong, which it isnt , so i tried to register and it worked but its got none of my char data just empty char slots.

so explain how it is i can have two seperate accounts with the same user name and password ?, as long as im on linux i cannot access my character only make a new one so either i go back to stupid windows , or start over.

Your linux and your windows system are connecting to different servers. This is the only possible explanation.

Well , i just went onto my laptop which runs windows as i've previously mentioned.

the info in the Server box was not server.themanaworld.org as it was on my home computer which runs on linux.

Instead on the laptop , the Server box had this " 81.161.192.4." could that be the problem ?

That's the same server. In the upper left corner of the login screen, what do they both say?

Glad it's working for you. The hair thing is because 0.0.26 can't handle all the hair styles we're using. You might want to update it.

well its only partially working, linux has just been a thorn in my side this last month.

I'll just stick with the laptop for now, as it is im having mega lag problems with the game on this computer anyways. ill just wait till i buy a new tower.

thanx for the assistance, but to be honest even if i did have to make a new char from scratch i wouldnt care that much ....anythings better than having nothing to play but Tibia ^^

Are you sure about the account name? No "secret" spaces etc?
