I've got an LDA server up and running with the Master Server.

As early as tomorrow night, I'd like to shut down the old Master Server....if everyone running dedicated servers would change over to the new address.

****For those running dedicated servers, the new Master Server address is: 206.222.78.139
****

Jim,

Do players have to change their "C:\Program Files\Tread Marks 1.5\config.cfg" file's 'MasterAddress = ' line to be the new address (i.e., 206.222.78.139 [currently it's 216.101.212.117]), or will Tread Marks go to www.treadmarks.com and find the new one when it determines that it cannot contact the old one?

Again, I'm talking players, not dedicated servers.


Thanks,

The game should find the new Master Server without any changes.

Looks like the switch has been made.

Server hosts, update your pointers please.

For those using the Master Client, just type in the new IP, and you're good to go. It gets saved for future use.

I can't change my servers until after midnight tonight.
But I will as soon as I can!

Looking forward to a more stable MS.

BTW, will you make a note on the TM main page and server list page? I prolly won't matter if the regular game picks it up automatically.

Yeah......its a offical change over.It will auto look for the new master in the game,however,TM master client needs to be changed and I think we should all do what Swisher said and change the master IP in the TM directory so you don't have to go through all of that finding server stuff.Maybe LDA can correct the IP in the next patch?If there is going to be a next patch
