I think the OT forum is the most popular.

That's basically the problem, topics are made alot in the OT forum so when you've made a topic informing an event, sometimes it gets ignored and pushed down. Here, the activity isn't as strong yet someone will see this topic and I don't think it'll go anywhere for abit. ;)

ARGH, for some reason I can't access adventure-eu... I don't think I've ever been able to either. Except for cached versions from google that is... anyone have the same problem ?

That's right  :D Haha, well obviously I'm not actually him, just a big fan.

And yeah, I tried a whole bunch of other browsers (even weird ones like Lynx under linux!). I'm starting to think it's my ISP, cause it doesn't work on my laptop nor my roommate's computer either  :\

Charter? Nope... I'm using Natel. It's very strange though, everytime I try to access the site, it just times out during the look-up.. To my knowledge, this is the only site I've ever had problems accessing. I also tried pinging it, but no luck.

I  was able to access adventure-eu at work yesterday, so it must be an ISP-specific problem, I'm not sure. I'll try to access one more time at home when I get there, but this is def. something that should be reported to adventure-eu, as ISP-wide problems are pretty urgent to get fixed heh...

Yes! I agree... and now I'm 100% sure it's a DNS server problem (that is, some ISPs just can't find the IP address corresponding to the www.adventure-eu.com url).

Benji, in a command prompt window, try this:

nslookup www.adventure-eu.com
(which should normally yield some result, but in my case it did not and probably won't either in your case)

then,
nslookup 70.84.212.66
or
ping 70.84.212.66
(this IP is the IP corresponding to adventure-eu, which I got from a friend who can access it and do an "nslookup" or "ping" on it).

For me when using the ping/nslookup on 70.84.212.66 it worked fine, which means in theory I should be able to access the site (I tried typing in http://70.84.212.66/ in my browser window, but that didn't work - although  that seems to work for some websites). I think the only way to fix the problem is through contacting one's ISP and they would have to update/fix their DNS table on their DNS server. That is, I'm fairly sure adventure-eu can't fix our problem  :\

Sorry to hear that you guys can't access the site. You are missing out on a great teaser for Al Emmo.

Who all heard the narrator's introduction of the characters? I thought it was great. John Bell is very talented.

You can workaround the problem by adding the following lines to your HOSTS file:

Code:
70.84.212.66 adventure-eu.com
70.84.212.66 www.adventure-eu.com


Where this file is found depends on your OS - for Windows XP, it's in C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC. The file is plain text, so you can just use Notepad.

Note that this should only be used as a temporary measure until the problem is resolved for your ISP. Remove the lines every once in a while to see if it's working again, then re-add them if they don't. If it stops working with these lines, the server has changed IP addresses, and you need to get the new one and put in place of 70.84.212.66.

That teaser reminded me to the old Sierra games in dialogue style.

Wow! That did the trick, Pidgeot. Still, I don't understand why I couldn't have just typed the http://IP in my browser (maybe because that IP hosts multiple sites?). Anyway, thanks a lot I'm off to do some reading  :D

That's exactly why - multiple sites may be hosted at that server, and it will have no way of knowing where you're trying to go just based on the IP.
