Game T reset

Because of the crash, the game had an unwanted outcome, so we're resetting tonight.

Win10 Updates installed and back up again.

While we've gotten TWGS to run on Win10, its not the best environment for this game.  I have updates set to NOT auto update, so whenever there are any available I have to choose when to update, and I first close down TWGS when no one is online.

When updates are available, I do not get a notification, not from Windows anyhow.  It's you the players who let me know that TWGS isn't working.  That's my first indication that updates need to be installed.

Currently game P is closed and I'm the only one in it.  I've changed it to unlim time just to monitor TWGS to see if I can catch these problems before the rest of you.

In the mean time, I want to thank everyone who's notified me of problems with TWGS.  I keep on top of it as best I can.

Game K deleted

Star Killer asked that I delete game K.  He's going to do some more work on his edit.

Every sysop wants to have a "signature" edit, mine is on games P & T.

Sorry for the "loopy" server today booting you from the menu I'm told.  I did reboot and checked for further updates.  Should be all set to go, please let me know if you have any further issues.

SK saves the day! New server is here!

Star Killer is very generous and purchased a refurb'd Dell for me to run the TWGS on.  I've been uninstalling unnecessary stuff, updates and restarts.  Tomorrow I'll install TWGS and do some testing.  Plan on opening all games this Saturday 8 pm est.

This new machine is so nice and quiet!

With regret, I must shut down the server

The power supply is failing and I don't have a spare.  Can't let the "magic smoke" out of the box, so I'm going to shut down before that happens.

I'm saving games, but don't anticipate getting back up and running any time soon or ever...

It's been fun!  Thanks to all my loyal players, I hope you enjoyed this old game.  I know I have.

Please head over to Star Killer's server, he hosts good games.
