Server list not refreshing

Post by Sparco » Fri Feb 20, 2009 3:18 am

When I launch bz, and select Find Server all the servers load fine, but when I join a server play for a little while, disconnect, and try and join a different one, the server list stays the same as last time. Same number of players observers etc. Does anyone know how I can fix that?

What I do is do the / to search type something random then hit enter and delete what you typed.

Check your setting at Options > Cache Settings > Server List Cache. If it's not already, set it to "Off / Backup Mode".

If that is already set that way, you might have a caching proxy either on your network or somewhere at your ISP. You can try using port 81 instead of 80 by following the directions on our wiki:

I had my Server list cache set to 5 Minutes. It works fine now. Thanks for the help.
