I've spoken to Karoo's tech support. The person I spoke to wasn't one hundred percent sure, but as far as he knew they don't muck around trying to block certain transfers, etc. So, I still feel none the wiser. We can log on to specified game servers, but we can't bring up the list server. I don't wa...

SUCCESS!!!

Pythonian.com works beautifully. So why are we having problems with the list server?

We're in the UK. We were connecting through Tiscali. Now it's Karoo---a local monopoly in the area, i.e. there is no alternative!

Mmm, worth trying, but in the past the laptop scenario is: bz attempts to start then almost immediately crashes in a blaze of screen pyrotechnics leaving me staring at my desktop again! Hence BZ isn't currently installed on the laptop, but I'll have a go later.

Unfortunately the laptop doesn't have a 3D graphics card :(

Perhaps you are right, except that everything else to do with working online is working fine! If you are able to make a more detailed suggestion about what to do that would be good.

This is ethernet over powerline, and the router gets switched off at least once a day. Thanks for the thought though. :D

Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think it's a firewall issue. BZ has been running on this machine for two or three years; with this router and network setup for a year, and the only thing that had changed when this problem started was our location and ISP. Also, I would expect the fresh instal...

Thanks, folks, for having a go at this. My boys are heartbroken at the moment. BZ is one of their favourites (and mine). > 1: How far did you move? Did you just move a few miles away, or to the other side of the country? > 2: During the process, did you have to change ISPs? The simple answer to both...

Progress?

Yes, no problem constitution. I can bring up that link. I've had a chance to run bz with debugging switched on. Here is the relevant part: * About to connect() to my.bzflag.org port 3182 (#0) * Trying 192.168.1.71... * Connection refused * couldn't connect to host * Expire cleared * Closing connecti...

Thanks for the suggestion, but no joy.

I've tried changing the relevant config line to read: 'set list http://my.bzflag.org:81/db' but it makes no difference and bzflag then simply resets the line to its former state.

Cheers.

Can't find list server

Hello, we'd appreciate some advice here. We've just moved house. Until then Bzflag was running fine. Now, although our broadband connection is up and running, whenever we try find a server nothing happens. The game simply prints 'Can't talk with list server' (I've now changed this to what it actuall...
