2. restart computer

3. If Windows, go to Start -> Run and type “ipconfig /flushdns” (no quotes) – it may fix

Many apologies for the stupid problems. I’ve posted a summary in Announcments on the forum.

The Simutrans Forum just moved to a new server

potatoserverOur forum was moved to a new server. From now on, Isaac – one of our forum admins – will be hosting our forum on his servers.

The forum has been moved back to Isaac’s servers. This was done with only a couple of hours of downtime.

Technically, for now, you will notice that “simutrans.info” is the domain — all requests sent to forum.simutrans.com will be automatically forwarded to simutrans.info – this is what allows us to make the transfer seamless (with the exception of the necessary downtime to copy files and the database, but that was done at a time when activity on the forum was very minimal).

The remaining sites of  Simutrans are still on their original servers.
