still not working

I tried three times and i still get the same message:

Address Not Found

Firefox can't find the server at mmfail.co.cc.

The browser could not find the host server for the provided address.

* Did you make a mistake when typing the domain? (e.g. "ww.mozilla.org" instead of "www.mozilla.org")
* Are you certain this domain address exists? Its registration may have expired.
* Are you unable to browse other sites? Check your network connection and DNS server settings.
* Is your computer or network protected by a firewall or proxy? Incorrect settings can interfere with Web browsing.

Any ideas why?

Thanks

This game is nice. Thanks for developing it.
Some things...

  • help.html missing
  • The Mana World 0.0.28.1 has been released

I dont have time to check on it more, but I'll post it later.

EDIT:Found out that I had some time...

  • I think

    ;Copyright (C) 2004-2008 John T. Haller

    that should be

    ;Copyright (C) 2004-2009 John T. Haller
  • From what I've heard, this
    TMWPortable.INI CONFIGURATION
    =================================

    should be

    TMWPortable.INI CONFIGURATION
    =============================
  • Update the Installer to 0.12

That's all I found, but there is probably more. Sorry for all those tags, but It looks kinda dirty without them

I'll try it

I'll use it on a limited account to see if it works.

EDIT:
I attempted at school (limited account, behind proxy server) and it crashed. It couldn't connect to the server, and items.xml couldn't load. I'd try without the proxy server if i could, but alas i cannot. Sad And I was hoping it'd work...

Seems the proxy prevents from connecting.
It probably didn't really crash, but it you cannot loggout and such yet, so instead of returning to the login screen it quit.

Development Test 3 has been released.
The app should now comply to all standards, help.html has been added and the newest installer (0.12.4) has been used.
Also, I haven't heard about a single bug yet.... I find it hard to believe there are no bugs at all, so I'd like to request anyone finding bugs to please post them here. Thanks for testing guys Biggrin

I just tested it and it works fine for me.... the server might have had some issues, I really don't know. Please try again, I hope it works for you this time.

Edit: I decided to add a mirror for it, so hopefully issues like this should be prevented from now on. Biggrin

Um... Broken?

Mirror one is most likely broken. It's saying the file size is about 200 bytes. Just bringing this to attention.

I think its the fact that he

I think its the fact that he lives in the Netherlands and so the server can't work in the U.S. (or something like that, I really have no idea). I've had that same problem too. Others say its worked though (in case you haven't read the posts). Luckily, there's mirror 2.

Actually, the first server is

Actually, the first server is not in the Netherlands, while the second one is. Besides, that shouldn't really matter. I'll contact the first servers host though to see what the problem might be.

Edit: I found the issue, I messed something up while uploading. Sorry guys, my apologies for the inconvenience.

The second mirror I assume? And it wasn't exactly while uploading, but the file permissions, so it might have been something I messed up later, I'm not sure.

RT Member OliverK, reporting with test reuslts:
The Mana World Portable Notes

  1. why do the user have to agree to the GNU V2? This isn't done (to my knowledge) with any of the other apps.
  2. has supprt for the INI options such as Settings Dir, Program Dir. AFAIK this ins't a problem as far as the specs are concerned, but this is extra code that is going to be needed in the future
  3. shouldn't need the No ini portion. Read with defualts should handle it, adjust rest of code accordingly
  4. Personal feeling note: try not to use GoTo's while coding. Bad form, or so they say
  5. help file should have the general things PortableApps issues in it.
    title for help file will need to be changed upon release, just set it up as if it was released.
  6. why the readme in app\? Notepad++ doesn't have it, get rid of it Biggrin
    The appinfo.ini Publisher=Michon van Dooren & http://themanaworld.org/about.php should just say "& the Mana world team" or something akin
  7. The homepage in the appinfo.ini should list the link on portableapps.com
  8. Another personal note: Should probably warn about needing to register Biggrin
  9. before release, load up as many of the updates as possible, please Biggrin

That's all for today. I haven't regshoted yet to make sure all else functions, but I assume from talking to you that it shouldn't be a problem.

1. I'm not really sure about

1. I'm not really sure about why I added that, but you're right, I haven't seen any app with it. Will be fixed in Dev Test 4.

2. I don't understand what you mean with this part, could you explain yourself in more detail please?

3. That was left over from a older version, it will be removed in Dev Test 4.

4. NSIS is all about GOTO's, unfortunately. I hate em, but I have to live with em Sad I'll take a look to see if I have any unneeded ones though, as part of a general code cleanup.

5. What should I change the title to, Pre-Release 1?

6a. Copied it from FFP, I see most apps don't have it so I might as well remove it.... doesn't hurt though. I'll see if I'll remove it for Dev Test 4.

6b. Will take a look at that.

7. That would be http://www.PortableApps.com/TMWPortable right? Changed it for Dev Test 4.

8. I'll add it to the notes.

9. The updates change so this might not be a good idea. For people who want to save the updates on their USB, it will only be a bit of downloading the first run anyway, and they will be sure of having the most recent updates.

About Number 2: The ini

About Number 2: The ini includes support for things that I've heard are no longer needed. Don't worry about it unless someone complains.

Number 4: Yeah, unfortanately I couldn't see any good way to fo it either. Maybe its just me. Don't worry to much.

Number 9: I don't know the game or the code, this is something the more experienced will have to handle, it was, after all, only a suggestion.

The FAQ and Walkthrough links in your OP are both dead Sad

Thanks again for this and I hope you continue to update this as the game is developed.

The port TMW uses is probably

The port TMW uses is probably blocked, I'm not sure how to circumvent this. Using a proxy will most likely work, but I never tried it.... as far as I know there are no settings in TMW for it, editing the proxy settings for IE will affect TMW too, if I remember correct. Keep in mind that the person who created the block will probably not be happy with people circumventing it.

Not planning on playing this

Not planning on playing this at work just wanted to test if the game would run on a limited account and it does. Just there is a possible issue with proxys. However this is a base app issue I guess. I can't wait to see this go official Smile

I'm guessing this means TMW is on the cusp of becoming pre-release?
