Play Online not working?

Postby Lumin » Fri Feb 02, 2018 2:30 am

Tried it with multiple games, both .blorb and .taf, and it just attempts to load forever. Anyone else experiencing this?

If online play is just broken then add that to the list of not-the-greatest-for-attracting-new-people issues with the site...

It's because the play server is still my personal machine, which has crashed recently, I think because of the dodgy Spectre patch which is making my CPU go nuts.

Is it not possible to share the load somehow? Does it only work on a Windows OS?

Campbell, what's the issue with the computer exactly? It's a long shot, but if it was recent and you're using Malwarebytes you might have been hit by the massive memory leak they included with a recent update. It is really really easy to mistake that for your computer abruptly crapping itself. (Ask me how I know... :roll: )

Nah I checked that one. May actually be a fault with the CPU or motherboard. May need to take it to the shop which is a first for me!

And yeah rotter, it only works on Windows running IIS.

It'll still be good having two solutions in the long run, but this will make the rest of the ADRIFT entries playable in time for IFComp, so that's fantastic, this is the best timing possible on that. :bravo:

Somebody should probably go post at the intfiction forum so that they'll know it's available now.

Yes this too, I was trying to say something like that and then gave up amid all the autocorrect fails.

The timing is so good for the IFComp but also a little bit hilarious, I read that first thing at 4am and just started laughing. Maz still deserves to be bought all the beers there are of course for putting so much work in for a community he's not even connected to, and a backup server is going to be important to have for the Adrift Renaissance.

Excellent work in getting the online play working again! Best of all the pictures of the games seem to be working to now!
