New Client
« on: September 22, 2013, 11:35:34 pm »
All,

I am very pleased to announce that the developers have compiled a beta release of the new client - OurMX

A download location has been organised by the community.
www.ourmx.net/OurMX.zip

We are also in the process of setting up a new website to support the new client
www.ourmxworld.net
It is in development at the moment and content is currently being added.

A Forum has been created for bug reports.
http://www.ourmxworld.net/forums/bug-reports
Please check the bug you are reporting has not already been reported.
Please include all relevant information such as operating system, outline what you were doing at the time and a screenshot if possible.

Just a tip for anyone who tries to run this on Windows 8 from your Program Files directory. You need to right click each DLL file and go to Properties and then click the "Unblock" box so that Windows will allow the DLL's to be loaded. You need to do this for every DLL in the folder and also the main executable. This is even if you have UAC set to its lowest setting.

Congrats to all. I downloaded the new client. Can it be installed (win xp) when the old winmx 3.54 is still on the pc? Or should the old be removed? Also, can both clients be active/running at the same time? or should you 'toggle' back and forth. thanks.

Despite trying several times, no search results are showing.
I'm also having lots of problems adding files to library. Any help available ?
Thanks

The important bit to remember is that they need to be on different ports, many folks are mentioning a crash when the cause is simply that the new client cant obtain the free port with its socket creation routine, changing the ports in setup will resolve that issue.

As with winmx if your not getting search results its likely you need to change primary node.

As many of us have uber sized libraries to share there has been a problem with the library "locking up" the client this is because as with the early versions of winmx the files are being hashed as they are scanned  and this is a tad labour intensive. The developers are working on this but for the moment can I suggest smaller batches of files be added at a time and that will keep you working till the library issue is resolved.

Thanks to all those who have posted bug reports and made screenshots to help locate these sometimes obscure issues

Thanks for the advice GS. Working ok now.
It will take time to iron out the niggles with the new client ,but at least we have a working client.. I really appreciate the hard work that the development team undertook to bring this to fruition.
The detractors now seem to be conspicuous by their absence, you know the people i'm referring too

I like to think you have a good idea even if the details are a bit thin on the ground at present Stripes  :)

Stage one is this release and obviously Stage 2 is to get folks happy with using it and demonstrating its stability and useful features etc . Stage 3 is to start the work of swapping some of the network functions about and adding new ones to offer further features and critically to address some of the major protocol holes that currently we can only band aid over, at that stage the network will we hope be able to move in a single mass of users to a new client based network and enjoy some peace and quiet for some years.

As for a time frame I dare not say just yet but I'm sure once the developers have fixed most of the bugs etc the road will become clearer to all of us.

Can anyone help please ??
When using the new client I cannot manage to download and transfer files from either the search function, or from other users lists after browsing. Is there anything I need
to configure.

Thanks

would help if you could be a bit more specific about what you do and what happens.
it does not work alone does not tell much
does the transfer get into the transfer list or not?
if so does the transfer time out ?

Hi Wonderer

The files do not appear on the transfer window when I either use the download button or double click on a users file when using the search function.

Thanks for your help

I could spend a lot of time asking questions and then figuring out a temporary fix for the issue your having Elroyd but can I suggest you hold fire till we fix a few more bugs or just run secondary mode as thats the most bug free section of the client at this time , I owe you a favour for your patience  :)
