No you don't need the 3.6.10 files.  3.6.10 will not let you see FS2netD at all right now.

Anyone playing?  I can't see any servers either.

Use the 3.6.9 build.

I am.

EDIT: Figured it out... apparently it's not possible to run multiplayer over a wireless card. :wtf:

Wireless network.  At least mine.  Maybe there's a setting you can change to allow it; I didn't look too closely.

It should work. You may need to mess around with port settings somewhere though. Although wireless networks in general have a fairly high latency and are not ideal for gaming.

They also tend to be prone to network burps, and periodically lose connection for less than a second.  While it wouldn't normally be noticeable, it tends to kill file transfers and I would suspect multiplayer gaming.

@FUBAR-BDHR: 3.6.10 working fine with FS2NetD, it's just that it requires the new server to work and so everyone playing needs to use a 3.6.10 build in order for everybody to play.  The only times that it doesn't work is when no one bothers to tell me that the FS2NetD server stopped responding (crash, hang, etc.) and it goes unnoticed by me until I happen to check on it at some random point.

@Goober5000:  You were definitely logged on to the 3.6.10 server, since you somehow managed to trigger a code bug that created an endless loop issue.  ;)  I think that I managed to fix the bug now, so I guess it was a good thing that it messed up on you.  But it did make the server non-responsive, so give it another try since it really shouldn't matter whether you are running on a wireless card or not (unless it's a firewall issue).

Could have sworn you told me the 3.6.10 build servers would not show up on FS2netD or was that just for the standalone test build you sent me eons ago?

In early test builds there was a situation there, unless you are simply referring to the website.  The website can only list games from one daemon, but for normal builds there are two (one for 3.6.9 and one for 3.6.10).  Until 3.6.10 actually gets released (or usage of 3.6.9 multiplayer drops off, whichever comes first) I'm just leaving the website monitoring the 3.6.9 daemon.  That means active games from 3.6.10 don't show up on the website.  But, 3.6.10 also has the lobby, so you can just get in there and chat if you want while waiting to start up a game  (assuming there aren't any more bugs in that part of the code anyway).

Great I'll have to toss up a standalone or 2 tomorrow and see what happens.  Any particular build I should be using?

Just which ever one works best for you.  There will be a new Xt build this week which does address some bugs in the multiplayer code, but I can't say exactly what day that will get released.

Can you remind us in the recent builds forum so we can grab it? =)

OK there should be a standalone out there running the 10-28t build.  I'd like to know if anyone can see it.  It's on a computer I've never tested FS2 over the internet on.  Hoping I have it configured right.

Sorry, the daemon crashed almost right away.  :(

I restarted it with a new binary, in a debug session, to please try it again.  If it messes up this time then I'll be able to figure out where the bug is and fix it.
