All download links broken. All servers down. Just me?

Post by veyrdite » Sun Apr 03, 2016 12:56 am

About a month ago I rediscovered dday and started playing online. About a week or so ago the only server on my list disappeared. Now 'Update Servers List.exe' finds no servers.

I suspected that I might be running an old version of the game, as the main site lists 'D-Day Normandy 5.0 Installation v02 ' on the download page whilst I have an installer .exe called 'D-Day_Normandy_Install_v01.exe'.

Unfortunately all of the current download links for this version are broken:

Is this the last breath for dday? Please someone tell me it's just me and my computer. Something to do with the network code and wine.

If so, I'm glad I picked up the game when I did. I found only one person online and we had a bit of fun together. Discovered things and maps I never knew about:

Now I play mostly on the map dday1. I put 8 bots on axis and none on the allies, then try to invade. It's fun, and by keeping it up I avoid atleast this one map getting haunted.

I'm too afraid to try some of the other maps now:

Can dday truly be taken away from you?

There is a posting from nightrider about Dirks server, which is the most consistent, having changed it's address. I believe it is in the server forum. There is also a UK and I think an Australian server but most traffic is on Dirks.

Thankyou :) It looks like the server listing system is flakey then.

Has the main download link been down for a while?

Did you look at the alternate link, not under downloads but under the middle picture?

Dirk's is the most popular server and you can usually find people playing during the week between 4 and 6 pm eastern standard time, and all day on the weekend. His new IP address is liberty.souers.org:27910.

Being pedantic @ 56 years old and throwing a grenade, that is not an IP address - it is a URL.

It's just good to see you posting. Have you seen Gen. Pepper lately?
