Do I need to do anything special to get the client to work apart from the tiny bit it asks me for during setup? My internet connections say I'm not using a proxy, so it should need nothing in that area. Upon startup, the client tells me either,
"Error contacting Autohost," or,
"There was a problem checking the stati,"
depending on different things I try to get it working.
I made sure to use the "/" separator for the directories, as described on the info page.
I've tried the full game name, Plain Vanilla 2018.
I use the Stars!Box download.
The client is in c_drive with the Stars! game file.
The game files directory is the PV2018 folder in d_drive.
My game and upload passwords are typed correctly.
It also can't find my player number, and has "null" for Autohost time.
I've tried playing with where I say the game files are, as well as the game name.
Was any of that improper?
Edit: Have now also tried to set game as "Local" instead of "Autohost." It recognizes that the game is on manual generation, finds player 7, but won't launch, poll, or analize, can't read the .x file, and thinks I'm not turned in yet when I am.
Edit2: And now it's working just fine. How strange.
