Can't play - server down?! Sat, 18 December 2010 07:49
Have been able to play M44 online in the past but just tried now and couldn't get any of the buttons to work (not even quit!). reboot and Reloaded m44 again and same thing. Anyone else having the same issue?

Think M44 online needs some sort of message to indicate as such. Since when you hit that play button, you can't do anything. Think that is related to the hitting that button and it is still trying to connect. Did sit there for like 15 minutes w/o any message saying anything.

I experienced the same about a week ago but thought it was my computer. Especially because it was resolved after rebooting ...

Oh, good. I'm not going crazy, and I don't have to close all my windows and reboot.

Same over here. I was worried that it was a malfunction by me, but now I hear it's global, I'm not so worried anymore. I hope it is a small technical mishap at DoW and that they can easilly fix it.

Had this problem two hours ago - reported it as a bug.
Play button - eventually - told me my login and password were incorrect and then showed an empty lobby and no GI in my account.

I could - however - view my correct service record.

Server appears to be back now.

Yes, the server froze at 6AM CET. When the server freeze it is not restarted automatically because we need to conserve evidence of the issue if we want to be able to resolve the problem in the next version.
I captured the evidence around 8:45AM CET, and restarted the server which is up since 9AM CET.

Sorry for the inconvenience,

It sure would be nice to indicate on the client end about some sort of message - like in TTR.

And also seems on the client end, one cannot exit the program gracefully (one has to use Task Manager to kill it - at least for Windows Vista). So thus be nice to have some sort of timeout feature that allows the user to exit the program gracefully.

Thanks

Quit in XP worked fine... Must be a vista related bug?

Same problem here right now! I was playing in Sword Beach, and the game crash, after that, couldn't get any of the buttons to work (not even quit!)
Maybe Server down!

The same has happened to me? I was in the middle of a battle, but I thought it has been a problem with my connection. Should we report a individual bug?

It's December 19th. 11.22 here in UK and the server seems to be down.

DoW needs to have some sort of mechanism that reports when this happens.

I think the server is down again presently. I was in the middle of a game and now cannot command any units. Sad

Yes. None of the buttons work on the main menu. My brother-in-law is also experiencing it now too where he lives.

Yup. Out of business here too. In the middle of a battle. exited. No players in lobby. Left program, came back, couln't get any menu functions to work.

It is a beta. Hopefully issues can be fixed, terrific online gaming.

I confirm that we had a server crash during the night, and restarted the server this morning around 8:30 AM French Time.
