Ah, to be the font of all things naive. 'Tis I.

I seem to be misunderstanding how to type a server address into the multplayer field.

I've done this successfully before. So.. darnit.

For example: I've tried typing in these versions of addresses; mpserver02:5000.flightgear.org, mpserver02.flightgear.org, and EVEN (most recently) mpserver02.flightgear.org:5000

One of these has worked for me in the past. Or so I think.

Would a fellow simmer respond with a proper address, so I can resume my fiery crashes?

Cheers to all of you,

Gravy

you should just enter the address i.e. mpserver12.flightgear.org no port number
and don't use mpserver02 because it overloaded so pilots on it sudenly popup and disappear

Thank you very much for your time.
~And I thought my fgrun was just moody.


I see you have a 'liveries' link there. Time to go look that up and see what it means.


Cheers,
