anyone else having problems with the game? Fri, 28 January 2011 23:12
I've tried loading the beta and been put on the first menu page but when I try to go to expert mode it says expert doesn't exist. I've also been getting dropped out of games with amazing regularity. And sometimes I've gotten an error message when I've tried to log on. Anyone else?

If you haven't paid for a pack that qualifies you to use the EXPERT mode, then you may be dropped for that reason.

Only the purchase of a CAPTAIN or MAJOR pack will give you access to Expert Mode.

I confirm that your account is all fine.

What you describe looks like random difficulties connecting to our server.

Which kind of Internet connection do you have? Are you behind a corporate firewall? When you ping www.daysofwonder.com, do you lose packets?

Hi Yann,

Tonight I wanted to play on line but I was shown 2 times on the players list so nobody could invite me and if I tried to invite somebody the could't find me or respond my invitation.

Can the new version 1.6 be the cause of this problem.

I did first invite a player but when I canceld my call then the problem started.

So I go to sleep now and see what it will give tomorrow.

First, let me say to Yann Thank you for your prompt and useful responses.

My internet connection is DSL. I have a norton firewall but it has never interfered with the game before.

I have no idea how to ping or find out if packets have been lost -- unless it's by an airline.

Thanks, again.

This might be something you've already done, but make sure that you send in a bug report to Days of Wonder using the Bug Report Form so they have the problem on file and can help you directly.

The forum is a fine place to post problems so the rest of us know about an issue, but it's not an efficient place to get a fix...the Bug Report form will get you helped a lot faster!

Good luck! I hope you're able to get back on the battle field soon! Cool

Are you sure you're using the beta16?
