Help with playing

Postby LadyLord on Mon Oct 22, 2018 9:23 pm

Okay, guys... so it's been YEARS since I played. And I can't seem to get Java to work. I downloaded it, etc etc.. but it still doesn't want to open. Any thoughts?

The java plugin doesn't work in most modern browsers (chrome, firefox). Try it with internet explorer.

You might be better off with using Putty instead. It's a telnet client program that's fairly easy to use.

Even after all these years, you really do hate me. :hrmph:
Didn't work, btw.

Downloading now. I'm not a totally techtard, but hopefully I will be able to figure it out.

It didn't. I can't figure out how to use Putty.

In the hostname, put: lord.nuklear.org
In the port, put: 10240
in connection type right below, select telnet, then click "connect" :)

Well, that seems to have worked, except I can't remember my password to login through Putty. Which I do not get. At. All. I remembered it with NO problem when I came back to the site last week. Now it's like my brain has letters and whatnot all confused. It's either that or the fact the cursor doesn't move across the screen while entering my password like it does my username. I don't remember if it ever did that or not. But anyway, I've tried I know at least 20 different combinations. Even tried changing my password. It's okay, though.. I sent tmo a message on Facebook. He'll get to me when he can.

Meanwhile, 'tilo, if you're out there, can you help me?

The cursor doesn't move in the password field. It should be the same password as your forum account.

That's what I thought I remembered, but I wasn't sure. And I still can't remember the password correctly and tmo hasn't gotten back to me, so I'm in limbo until it happens. :whistles:
