    Exclamation Need Moosock/GET extension help! Mind Twister's online scoreboard has stopped working

    I built Mind Twister using the MooSock extension to communicate with my website and deliver high scores. Unfortunately, the feature has stopped working and the server is returning a 500 Internal Server Error.

    Games I've built using the GET object seem to still be working, so I believe my webhost has changed some settings that stop it working with Moosock. An obvious solution is to convert the game to using the GET object, however before I invest many many hours in this, I'm wondering if I can tweak the settings of MooSock to get it working again.

    The settings I use to send and receive are:

    connect mindtwister.achronism.com on port 80
    send text line "GET url"
    send text line "FROM MindTwisterGame"
    send text line "User-Agent: HTTP-Tool/1.0"
    send text line ""
    send text line "listen on port 80"

    I'm curious if I could change the port or the User-Agent settings or perhaps if anyone has any insight into the changes the server would have made.

    I thought this was a GET request?

    GET <url> http/1.1
    Host: www.example.com
    Blank Line
    Blank Line

    The other problem is that most servers now use chunked sending, which is why Get object works and MooSock may not...

    I've tried that variation with no success, it's probably the chunked sending that's the problem.

    This has always worked for me:

    set alterable string website to "www.yoursite.com"

    connect to string$( "website" )" at port 80

    send text "GET " + "http://" + string$( "website" ) + "/directory" + "/script.php" + " HTTP/1.0" + string$( "LF" ) + "From: mehere@now.com" + string$( "LF" ) + "User-Agent: HTTPTool/1.0" + string$( "LF" ) + string$( "LF" )


    string$("LF") is set to ""

    I notice you send a text line, but I have traditionally just sent text


    But the Get object is much faster than Moosock. And it works with flash, and Moosock doesn't.

    Thanks cimic. This still didn't work so I decided to just rip out Moosock and put in the Get extension. That's the only thing that solved the problem as it was most likely the chunk sending that LB talked about.
