(I posted this on general chatter tonight but realize this is the place for it)
[Edit by Rick - I've deleted the other post.]

Well, it happened again...

The LDA main server is down. It was down for most if not all of this weekend.

I sure would like to know how we can get this server back up again when it goes down, and up quickly.

The only real fun way to play TM is via multiplayer. When the main server is down for a game community this small, most of us end up doing something else.

Since this has been happening frequently, I am begining to become concerned. Concerned that the future of this game is at risk.

This isn't the most popular game, but there are people here who keep the game alive, and encourage play by newbies who get on the server. The best way to keep people playing, both newbies and sages alike, is to give them an easy to find, reliable, accessible location where most of the people who are also playing online are concentrated.

We all love the 6-player-plus-AI-free frag fests.

Lets find a way to get the server back up quickly, or in the absence of that, acknowledge that the LDA server is an unreliable meeting place and establish a second place for people to meet when LDA is down.

I like playing with you guys. That is why I play online.

These are my thoughts.

Dinochrome is fun but LDA is the foundation of the game

Ok Robo, I down loaded your public server files, put them in my junk folder for now.
Per your inst. I should install them in my addon folder correct?

If folder is full, I shall install another game TM, do you change the director for this such as TM-2......I hope it's not to much of a dumb question ? :?

Should I d/l other servers or do I have them all ?




Live free or die !
