Now we're Steam friends :drink:. No worries. I've got a lot of preparation to do tonight anyway. I'll be at a dance festival from tomorrow afternoon until Sunday night and then I'll be exhausted. Maybe sometime next week. Perhaps we can round up a host by then. Do we have to open ports to connect directly via an exchange of IP addresses?

Yeeah, I've tried that before and it doesn't work without port forwarding.
Most of the games I play are on LAN with my brother and a friend so it hasn't been a big deal for me. Descent is the only online gaming community I can stand for more than two minutes anyway. :D

Let's see if we can find a willing host then. Damn, I sound like an alien don't I? Yeah my experiences with the various members of the Descent community have been overwhelmingly positive. We've got a lot of good people.

Due to my recent server migration, the tracker IP address has changed. Please use 82.165.136.196 for the "official" D2X-XL tracker. You can set it in config/d2x.ini. The tracker's port address has not changed, as it does not depend on the server, but is built into the tracker itself.

Cool! Thanks for the info. I assume that the new tracker will be included by default in the .ini file downloaded with future releases?

Yes, it will. I already changed the code accordingly to add it as default tracker.

Hi Diedel, I just installed a fresh copy of D2X-XL and the d2x.ini contains these two tracker IPs:

-num_trackers 2
-tracker1 87.106.88.224:9424
-tracker2 66.199.187.57:9424

Which differ from the one in this thread, so I added it to the list so that it looks like this:

-num_trackers 3
-tracker1 87.106.88.224:9424
-tracker2 66.199.187.57:9424
-tracker3 82.165.136.196:9424

Neither Yoshimitsu and I can find any trackers in-game though. Oddly enough, if we ping the 82.165.136.196 address we get a response! Could the server be up but the tracker program isn't running anymore?
