auto update fails on startup

Post by soap » 26 Jul 2005, 09:09

Everytime i start my CVS-version of Manaworld the automatic update system gives me the following error:

Code: Select all

The update process is incomplete.
It is strongly recommended that you try again later
couldn't connect to host
I can play the game, but it doesn't update on startup.

What can i do?

Well no updates are available at the moment, so no worries, and the update system is still under development. It could be cool if you could paste the log file, at least the part regarding the updater.

It didn't even started to download updates it seems, I suggest you keep trying since manaworld.org has been very slow these days and maybe you're getting a timeout. If you're still experiencing problems, we'll try to debug it more.

I think it's simply that that file doesn't exist. You probably have an old value for "updatehost" in your config.xml (and you can fix it by removing it). Everybody who has tried earlier CVS versions will have this problem. We should solve this however, or it'll be a problem each time we want to change the location. Probably we'll solve this with the new server that will tell the client the updatehost on connecting.

The specific line in my config.xml says:

Code: Select all

 <option name="updatehost" value="http://themanaworld.org/"/>
Do i have to change it? If it is so, which value do i have to choose?

EDIT
I tried to start manaworld in the linux-console. At the start it shows me one error:

Code: Select all

curl error 22 : The requested URL returned error: 404
/EDIT

My other problem the last two days was, that i had and still have a very slow connection in gameplaying... i.e. if i try to attack a monster it takes more than three seconds that the monster is hurt. I see it to late if they are to near and so on.
If i use F5 to sit down, 3-5 seconds are passing and then my character sits down.

It's unpossible to play the game with that connection..
Last week it was very fast.. :/

Code: Select all

<option name="updatehost" value="http://themanaworld.org/files"/>
or as Bjorn suggested, just delete your config.xml

About it being slow well it's possible, try to ping it and see if it's really because of the slow connection.

I deleted the config.xml. It now shows this updatehost:

Code: Select all

 <option name="updatehost" value="http://themanaworld.org/files"/>
but it doesn't update.

To the connection speed:
ping to animesites.de gives me:

I think the speed is ok.. but gaming is sometimes to slow.. still now.. :(

Hmm the update process has got a timeout of 15 seconds, so it can't be a timeout because you get a ping a lot lower than 15 s. I'm puzzled. Maybe posting the log again could help.

About the game being slow, you're the only one experiencing it? Maybe it's only because the server needs a reboot...
