My problem

Postby Haggis on Thu Aug 11, 2011 3:15 pm

Hey all! Ive just recently pre-ordered the 'Special Edition' of DD after playing v0.21 to death but im having trouble accessing the Beta, it just hangs on this screen:

Ive tried with both of my browsers (IE9 and FireFox 6.0) and they both get stuck at exactly the same point.

Any ideas?

Are you behind any firewalls or servers that might be blocking your game's connection to the net? If not, then there might be issues with your savegame, but I doubt that seeing as you said you haven't managed to play at all yet. Is your account email address the same as the one you used to register on the forum?

Yeah mate, my email is the same and there is every chance my Proxy Server is killing the connection. I'm currently working in Antarctica until December and my only internet connection available is through my employers satellite connection which is ridiculously filtered.

Ack! That's probably it... I can see if I can find out which ports Unity needs to have open to play the game for you, then maybe you might be able to connect if you can wrangle the social engineering required to get those ports opened.

Are you the player that had the alpha "shipped" to them in Antarctica? (Also, which base, resupply via Cape Town?) If not, there's always the alpha to tide you over until we've got the full ready as a download.

I didn't get the Alpha shipped. I'm down here with the Australians and we get Resupplied from Hobart in Tasmania. I downloaded the Alpha fine a few weeks ago after a recommendation from a friend and have become addicted! Haha! I was going to wait until you had a retail of the newer version out but then I got impatient and thought I would do my bit with helping out and bought the special edition of the full game and was looking forward to playing the Beta!

No dramas though, I will continue playing the Alpha as our ID department are unbelievably stubborn and wont listen to requests for ports to be opened and wait for a downloadable Beta or the full game to be released!

Keep up the fantastic work!
