Hi Hrothgar, all!

I just got an offer of peace from Hrothgar via the ingame diplomacy screen. Also, in the chat window of that screen there was an empty line of chat like "Hrothgar:" but with no actual message following.

I sent a 7 line reply, but after closing and reopening the diplomacy screen everything is gone, including Hrothgars peace offering.

Bug?

Are you two still fighting?  Don't you realize you're just wasting precious time as other civs pass you by?

Well better yet, let me know where you are so my Quechas can move in and show you how to do Ancient era warfare.

Neither my server or router crashed, most likely it's my ISP being weird at certain times of day.  I'll reset the server when I update the pbnotify software, maybe that'll help.

Same here.

I managed to get in briefly some hours ago and had to redo the last turn (3040 BC).

No luck with 3000 BC so far.

I'll reset my router, and everything else again just to make sure, it may mean I'll have a new IP but it's better than these connection issues.

Um....I guessed his password?

Naw, Dreamshadow has told it rightly - he was over at my place the other day when I was doing my turn, and asked if he could use my PC to do his so he didn't have to remember it later.

Plus I was showing off Civ 4 in all its 1920x1200 goodness on my 24" Widescreen LCD panel :)

Do not fear the great Japanese-Indian alliance...it may never actually get off the ground...gotta find each other first, then "negotiations" must occur...maybe at the end of a spear >:)

FYI, the clock on the server is now taking 2-3 seconds for each real second.  Might want to reboot it.

When I finally got it (about 4 hrs. left on the timer) two people had already made their turns and 2 more were logging in at the time.

Unfortunatly, the uptime didn't last all that long. Server is not responding atm.

71.108.133.144

I don't know what the heck is going on with the server.  It's been up for at least a week now with no problems, yet everyone seems to have connection issues.

This may have something to do with the large number of players.  With only 12 hours a turn, it's likely that 1 of those 18 players will be on any given hour and we're encountering connection issues from that.

Or my ISP may have some weirdness at late nights.  Honestly, I've done all I can so far.  Right now I'm just waiting for the next patch so I can see if some faulty network code is the culprit.

Don't worry, Varity almost has me knocked out.  That might help.   Someone else is bound to be fighting by now.  Then you'll probably see a couple civs band together for protection against the aggressors.  You could be down to a dozen players in a few weeks.

As to the server, I noticed it won't let you connect while someone else is establishing their connection.  It would be nice if it kicked out an error message, but it doesn't.

My prediction has come true, your magnificent troops have survived yet another 93+% percent battle. The 2rd in a row, 3rd overall.   :roll:
So I have queued up a couple more axemen and have scheduled the next assault for the end of the coming week.  :lol:

Fortunatly, I can automate this part, so I don't have to log on for the next days.

Lets hope that these intolerable connection problems get fixed by then.

From now on use civturtle.selfip.com.  It's in the e-mails, which unfortunately aren't reaching LE for some reason.

I'm using a service where my router automatically updates that dynamic IP service should its IP change.

I think some non connection issues might be my ISP periodically forcing me to change IPs to prevent me from hosting a server.  Thus making me restart my router to get new DHCP settings.

Hrothgar,

you appear to have sent me another message via the diplomacy screen. As you can see in this unedited(!) screenshot , text just doesn't get through. If you wish to tell me something, I suggest you try email or a forum message instead.

Sorry, I was just doing a quick turn.  I thought a peace treaty was self explanatory, but here,

"Mighty Varity of the Chinese, though we respect your power and tremble before the thunder of your armies, we are both surrounded by fierce and powerful and advanced cultures.  This continued war weakens us both when we should be preparing to face the challenges ahead.  Let us put aside our differences now lost in the dust of time and move forward without bitterness.  We as leaders have a responsibility to our peoples to not let this war crush us both.  I'm sure you see the wisdom in this especially when weighed against the miniscule threat our people pose to your empire."

It's kind of embarrasing to see both of us at the bottom of the civ list.
