Vassal connection? Tue, 14 April 2009 23:15
I was just playing online and lost the connection to the server. I tried to reconnect w/o success. Anybody else have this problem?

Constantly!
It seems that I am in the middle of a game - and poof. The sad thing is I can't get back into the server, even if I try umpteen times. I usually end up saving the game and hoping for an opportunity to play my opponent again.
I don't know what can be done to remedy this?

How about an amazing new online version of Memoir '44?! Laughing Very Happy

I wonder if DoW is paying Vassal to shut down at random times so people are more excited for the upcoming online version. Rolling Eyes Laughing

The bad thing is I was playing a newbie (he was the Germans in Pegasus Bridge) and I was losing - hope he did not think I bailed out on him Sad

as far as i know, no absolute timing, so vassal is the best choice for online play, of course we all here are hoping for an official version, maybe to make things faster, maybe DoW want to drop the AI module and save it for future development, i guess making things online is much easier Smile

The couple of times I tried to play Vassal, the same thing happened to me and I am on DSL. This is why I haven't even tried again in the last year.

I will say this. I was on Vassal today for 2 1/2 hours playing a breakthrough scenario. And although I had no issues, my opponent had to reboot twice.

Twice today I have lost connection during a game and could not get back before it was over, losing both. In both cases it was the connection to the DOW server, not to the internet. This is very disappointing. DOW, how can we solve this? Thanks!

Tinishubi your issue is not a Vassal Issue. You cannot lose a game on Vassal if you lose connection. You have a Days of Wonder Memoir '44 Online issue. You might want to post in the Online site for their Online Game. Vassal is a FTF game server and each person takes turns but there is no automaton running things if you lose connection.
Also you will note no VASSAL connection issues since 2009.

If Vassal is such an issue. Where is the best place to play online? I want to play but cannot play a game in one sitting. Any advice would be appreciated.

Vassal is in most cases fine. This thread is just old. There is a king of hill -style continuous ladder tournament running, if you are interested.

If you look at all the posts in this forum you will note that all but two of them were posted in 2009 (eight years ago). At that time the Vassal server was probably inadequate for the amount of usage and dropouts were normative. However, this year 2017, in all my playing time I have had no dropouts. In fact, it is a rare problem today. The two posts for 2017 you might want to read more carefully. The person complaining about a Vassal issue was incorrect as they were not playing Vassal, they were having connection issues with the MEMOIR '44 ONLINE server.
So in conclusion Vassal - little to no problems, Memoir '44 Online - some problems.

Zalamence makes a good point about Vassal. Not only are there currently several tournaments going on, but it uses a memory log system, so if you do have a dropout, your game is saved and you can start again from the drop point later.
