Can't Connect. All Servers "appear To Be Dead" Please help
Posted 28 October 2006 - 04:29 PM
I update my server list with http://corpo.free.fr/server.met.
I've tried selecting several servers from the server list. All get the same message:
10/28/2006 6:20:32 PM: Byte Devils (220.127.116.11:3306) appears to be dead.
10/28/2006 6:22:18 PM: DonkeyServer No2 (18.104.22.168:4242) appears to be dead.
10/28/2006 6:22:43 PM: DonkeyServer No1 (22.214.171.124:8899) appears to be dead.
10/28/2006 6:24:23 PM: The Cherry Popper (126.96.36.199:8118) appears to be dead.
10/28/2006 6:25:42 PM: MacroPirate (188.8.131.52:6789) appears to be dead.
and so on...
Does anyone have any ideas?

To get a clean server list without fake servers, do the following:
In Options > Server, disable the options "Update server list when connecting to a server" and "Update server list when client connects".
Go to the Servers screen.
Delete all servers from your server list.
Add this URL to the "Update server.met from URL" field in the Servers screen and click the Update button: http://www.gruk.org/server.met.gz
