Not sure if it's minbot, or the game in general, or what, but a lot of us seem to be having on-and-off join issues these days. For a little while, rebooting routers seemed to do the trick. Now I'm not able to join most of the time, though.

If anyone's interested in trouble-shooting and/or spinning up another bot for testing purposes, that'd be great. I'm also happy to fund a bot longer-term if that turns out to be useful - I got some funds, but no tech skillz.

AMEN (/AMIN)! Min and I -- OK, OK, Min -- figured it out (and I just threw crap at a wall like a deranged monkey), but the point is: it's a DNS problem!

You can still join games manually using the address, like so:

winbolo://64.62.173.16:[#####]

Where ##### = the game number spawned, e.g. if you mapped like this

Der: minbot map test
Minbot: winbolo/minhiriath.xen.prgmr.com:30823 - Contest.map - Strict

... you'd copy/paste this into your address bar:

winbolo://64.62.173.16:30823

So for now at least, that's the solution! Very Happy

I changed his ip address today, and updated the dns. So you will need to use 71.19.155.163 instead for the ip address.

Hopefully the problem will be solved soon.

Thanks, Min

Too ways to do it - one is shown above. Or: winbolo://71.19.155.163:##### (replace #####s with game number) in your browser address bar.
