    Can't... connect... to anything...

    Okay so I watched the video tutorials (which are really nice by the way) and I am trying to get the optimized game project to work... So I started up a server, ran the application, entered in a name and hit "enter" and then it just sits there. If I hit enter a few times, it just locks up... like it's trying to do something but can't.

    So I figured maybe it wasn't liking localhost, so I changed it to my IP address.. Same result.

    So I figured maybe my computer just wasn't working the server... I tried both of the public listed servers, and still the same result.

    I'm kind of at a loss as to what I can do next. I would like to use Lacewing but I can't even get a connection so that's kind of going to be a problem.

    Not running any firewalls, and the only other thing I am running is AVG free, but that's not sending out any flags that it might be blocking the app for some reason. I really don't know what else could cause it.

    Re: Can't... connect... to anything...

    So, are you using Lacewing build 17 in that case? Because if you're using 18, a few things have changed (it's a ground-up re-make)

    Also, make an edit box with multiline and vertical autoscroll/vertical scrollbar, and make events for every possible "On ... denied" event and for the On Error event that adds the error message or deny reason to the edit box. What messages are displayed?

    Re: Can't... connect... to anything...

    Okay I set that up, I hit enter to connect to the server.

    Nothing happens.

    I hit enter again and I get this:

    'Already connected' - 'Socket error'

    So I'm not really sure what to do here..

    All it's doing in the events is

    On Connect
    - Set Name to edit box

    On name set
    - Next Frame

    But it doesn't seem to be wanting to jump to the next frame.

    edit: I also tried to get it to do something else (other than going to next frame) and it still just sits there like it doesn't know what to do.

    Did you test for On Name Denied?

    Just tested it. Same thing. Does nothing until I hit enter again and then tells me I'm already connected.

    Also I tried connecting without a server up... and it gives me the same issue!

    Are you plugged into a router? If so, unplug the router and connect straight into the modem with an ethernet cable. If it works then, your problem is port forwarding.

    Re: Can't... connect... to anything...

    Is there a way to fix it if the problem is port forwarding? Without plugging directly into the modem? It's sort of shared between me and my girlfriend so I'd be cutting out her internet if I removed the router from the modem and hooked my computer up directly. =P

    Google portforwarding. Then attempt to set it up correctly.

    But if you're just connecting to your own server then I really doubt that's the problem. What port are you attempting to connect on?

    Could you upload a MFA?

    It's the mfa from DizzyDoo's lacewing video tutorial:

    http://www.box.net/shared/51lomfd84l

    It's using the port 6121
