Would Buy if we could stay connected :-)

Post by Ghastly » Fri Mar 03, 2006 8:21 pm

Icy and I love Backgammon .... Is there something wrong with us or server...
Neither of us can stay connected ... we have NO PROBLEMS with any of the other Games ...

Any Ideas ... Please advise.

Have High Speed Shaw CABLE and great speed normally.

Thanks :?

I had that in the beginning. What I had to do was to allow the firewall access to the game.
Hope this helps.

Ghastly try going off enhanced mode if that is what you are using right now for your Video settings and see if that helps.

That is a high ping and not what you should be getting with cable. Can you connect to one of the other sites at the same time and what is your ping in relationship to BG?

That sounds frustrating... especially since you don't have problems with the other games.

Not sure if Unicron's prior post will help, it helped me when I had problems on my last computer. Maybe you already tried this? If not, I hope it helps.

Good Luck!

Thank you Dusty ;-) and Becky :-)

If I run Euchre, Hearts, Spades all together ,,, I have no problems with ping .. connection etc ... That is why logging onto BG is so frustating :(

I have checked all firewall setting ...just to be sure ... :(

Logging on takes forever .... just been logged on and ping was 6000 + .. it did drop to 2700+ ms .... but will never paly at that speed just disconnects ...

I keep hoping someone has a answer :)

Thank you both again :)

I have problems with running other programs while backgammoning that i dont have while spading, hearting or euchreing..

For instance, when listening to my mp3 files on my media player, it catches and hangs on a song, or it freezes up. I just dont have those problems with the other games.

At this point Ghastly I would recommend unistalling the game, REBOOT, and reinstalling the game. The reason for the reboot is this clears the program from the PC where it has no chance to overwrite itself with the existing problems. MAKE sure you have your key which you can obtain through the help menu PRIOR to anything. Another thing to try is a defrag on the harddrive after the fresh install (may even want to try this before).
