I see the server went down for Rival Ball this weekend and cleared a week's worth of player stats. A little disheartening to go from something like 39/17 to 4/4, I must admit.

Anyhow, as it's been years since I used to play this game, I'm just curious if the servers still tend crash on a casual basis, and approximately how frequently it may be expected? I recall there used to be something about weekends, whatever ominous sense of logic (or lack there of) goes into that, heh.

Yeah, the server's still a little unstable, and people haven't been complaining about lost scores, so I've been a little lax in maintenance.

I'll try to remember to reset the server before each weekend to reduce the chances of any downtime or lost scores.

I keep get'n kicked out from the lobby repeatedly today. Had a single game with another player which seemed to run just fine, though; but otherwise it's on and off in the lobby, constantly loosing connection.

I've been doing some network maintenance lately that's been interfering with Rival Ball. I think I've got everything sorted out now, but let me know if you're still getting kicked.

Still having trouble online. Got one game down, then the next one vanished to a black screen while breaking through the first board. I haven't experienced any kick-outs from the server thus far, although it seemed my opponent had some trouble. Also attempted to message you, but didn't get any response.

Yeah, I was fussing with our firewall some more because of your last post.

I think it's all stable now. Once you're connected to another player, the lobby is no longer involved, so if you lose your connection at that point it's a problem between you and them.
