i have been trying ever since i got the game to log on and it has NEVER worked it always says... either there is a temporary network outage or the server is not yet fully functional. Please wait a moment before reconnecting!
And i can't get it to go away! The only virus protecter i use is XoftSpy+XoftSpy413_95. Are they affecting my game?

You need to reinstall - we did a major overhaul of our code, and changed server IP addresses about 5 months ago.

Hello,

I am trying to connect to Viridian, but for some reason I can only connect 1 out of 20 times and when I do get on, it is very lagged. I had to add the resolved DNS into my host file before I can even ping the server and I get high pings of between 400 - 1000. It was working fine three days ago but since that day, it has not worked on any of my computers. I do not have any firewalls or anything blocking it. Any suggestions??

Very much appreciated for any replies.

Thank You

Can you run a traceroute please? Thanks - that'll pin down where the packets get dropped and the ping times suddenly jump.

This is very odd, from the looks of it, it's failing in between the colo router and our server, which is Not Supposed To Happen (tm). Can you try again, and see if the same behavior repeats itself? Thanks.

Any ideas?? That is the strangest part, I dont know why this is happening on all the computers I tried it on. I even went and installed new java 1.5.0.04. No dropped packets to the server. It is just slow when I do anything. Thought maybe it was java applet.
Im very confused / lost now to my problem. LOL

Okay, that's odd. I'm positive the connectivity between the colo router and midnight is fine, it might be some sort of packet routing ghost in the system (in which case you should try again in a few hours to a day), or it might be that something is specifically blocking only Midnight, and nothing else (common culprits would be internet blocking/"productivity enforcement" software which blocks game sites and servers).

Here, in the meanwhile, I'll get you instructions for using the Puzzle Pirates proxy I run.

Thanks Liz for the patch. Have left a couple of days, and uninstalled and re-installed lots of time. Still cannot get on Midnight without the patch you sent me. Very frustrating as I am unable to go anywhere without walking there. (my boots are wearing out) and cant see pirate or crew info.

Doyou have anything else you can send me to patch this up. Hope you can help me.

At this point, I'm sure that it's a safe bet that midnight.puzzlepirates.com is being blocked by your computer or somewhere on your network - are you sure that there isn't "productivity enforcement" webfiltering software somewhere?

This is so unfair! My cousine came to my house so i let him play on my account. When i came back there was a guy talking to me and saying i had been swaring ( obviously my cousine) and i got off with a warning.
But i disconnected and when i tried to log in it said i was banned!!! so unfair man!
I have a question if youg et banned do you get banned for life or only for a period of time?

If you feel that you were unfairly banned, please send an e-mail to banpleading@puzzlepirates.com - this is not an appropriate place to plead your case.

You have internet filtering/blocking software on your computer that is preventing you from playing. Do you know if your computer is running any of the following?

Windows Firewall
Norton Internet Security
... (list to be continued, have to quickly look something up)

We're having problems with Viridian and Ice, please bear with us. We're working as hard as we can to bring them back up and to full speed.

Maybe Viridian needs a bigger server to hold the 2 k people that are on it everyday?
So you dont have to wait to log on it.
