Post by Wacho » Tue Jun 27, 2006 9:30 pm

Just tried logging on to GCCG and couldn't connect.  Anyone else having problems?

Yeah, same happened to me and Valmor the other day.  GCCG crashed and when we eventually logged back on, our game was lost to the ether.  Note to self - save regularly.

I find myself loosing the connection a lot more often than I used to. I used to stay logged on for days at a time but recently I more often than not find the connection closed when I get back to my pc some 10 to 20 hours later. So far I thought it was my own internet connection acting up, but it could also be the connection at the server's end.

Anyways: /savegame is the magic word ;)

I was on last night for a while but it went down and I tried getting back on, but no luck.  Not sure what's going on today.

I spoke with Rich.  He had a power surge last night due to lightning.  He said he'll get it back up asap.

I just dug this up again after quite a few years away, I was happy to see GCCG still existed. There's only one person in my area who plays ME, and it's just about my favorite card game, so I'd love to use this to learn to play again but...

"Fetching module list [2] http://www.derangedmonkey.com/bmin/available.xml"

That fails every time I try to download the cards using the Install batch files (windows system)

Any advice?

That's my file server.  I host that particular connection, I'll take a look into it in the morning.

victrix, are you trying a new install, or upgrading a very old one?

I'm wondering about that, as the gccg_package manager gets to that module list just fine from here. There has however been a problem with fetching those lists a good while back (see elsewhere on these boards).

This was resolved by the end of January (2006). If your install predates that, it is probably simplest to download the latest version from the website and reinstall. Before you do, make a backup copy of the .gccg folder (note the '.' at the start). You will need the password file from there to get back into your account and might want to keep decks too.
