***** IMPORTANT: SERVER MOVE *****

I will move D2X-XL to a different server during the next few weeks. I don't know how this will all turn out, particularly regarding the forum content, but I am rather confident right now.

You may experience a brief unavailability of descent2.de when the DNS entries are updated.

Well, the move has been done, and all has worked out quite well. There is one forum related quirk left, and that is that you need to re-login every time you load the forum main page. This might be due to my currently using the IP address in the forum link. I hope I will have my domains point to my new server soon, and that this will cure the problem.

I do like the simplicity of this forum now.

I wasn't really all to crazy about some of the animated icons.

Hi,

go to "Admin Control Pannel" > General > Server Configuration > Cookie settings > set the "Cookie Domain" to the right adress (even IP-Adress).

Yep, that did the trick. Thanks. :)

Umm ... any chances to get the 3D cockpit done? Specs are in the related thread.

In case anyone has the problems I did: clearing all cookies from descent2.de from your browser should allow you to log in again. Should only be necessary once.

Arbeitet aus diesem Grunde auch der Tracker nicht :?: Wär ja grausam ein WE ohne ein online D2X Match :rant:

Oh, good reminder!

The tracker has a new IP address: 87.106.88.224

You can make a tracker entry in d2x.ini to tell D2X-XL the new address. To do that add the following lines to d2x.ini:

-num_trackers 1
-tracker1 87.106.88.224:9424

This is described on the tracker page of this website. ;)

Wie "auf meiner HP"? Ich kann mich nicht erinnern, irgendwo eine reale Tracker-IP gepostet zu haben. Oder?
