Beginner server host required

by dellodp » Thu Apr 05, 2012 16:00

Hi I am after joining a minetest server I have version 0.4.dev20120122-1

The Mods I have are as follows:
Bucket
clock_face
growing
add_moreores_tool
mesecons mod
oil
moreiron
moreores
ropes
default
experimental
give_initial_stuff
legacy

Has anyone got a server available that I can join with these specs?

Thankyou

Wheter you can join a server or not only depends on your version. The mods textures are automatically downloaded from the server and the mod itself only runs on the server.

Thanks jeija I didnt know that!

People keep posting about joining their server but no-one seems to be including what version they have.

The assumed version should be a 0.4-devXXXXXXXXXX otherwise, the post should say so.

Generally, unknown versions should be the latest dev.

"Have correct software version and try to connect to a matchable public server version" .. are the issues alike ? ..

I enter the host id and the port number and it tries to connect but time's out everytime I try.

It's becoming slightly annoying and I am thinking of going back to minecraft at this rate!!

YAY........I just managed to join your server but everything around me was purple and green colours and there was no buildings, land etc??

This is frustrating because your map looks amazing!

strange...



after connection press "K" (for free move) then press "SPACE BAR" to get altitude ... to see it is not better ...
But what your describing looks odd ... may be you have an issue with your internet connection ... may be a too low bandwidth ...
