Unsure...
« on: March 17, 2016, 07:13:22 PM »
I have not installed or used MX for several years, and was so very happy to see it was still available for download and installation....the only problem is that when I completed the install, and opened the program, it will connect quickly as either Primary or Secondary connection, but will list only about 8 rooms in the Chat list, and only on Secondary connection; also when Search is used, it takes forever to find anything, and when it does find files, it does not list anything close to what I am searching for, most of what it shows is garbled stuff that I cannot even begin to tell what the file is supposed to be called. 

I used MX for several years back in the late 90's and early 2000's, and never had problems. Did I install the wrong patch (community patch that came with the installer), or am I expecting things to be like they were back in good old days?

Please, someone try to answer this post as soon as possible, so I know whether to keep the install, or just wipe it all out for good.

Winmx is under attack from some idiot and has been for years.

They are trying to make a new client but have not got as far as alpha stage yet.

At the going rate it should be released around 3010, if you're lucky  :lol:

Hi ForeverLost, winmx has been under attack for quite awhile now. The attacks mostly affect the search and channel listing. You can read about it here...
http://winmxworld.com/tutorials/wpn_attack_information_.html
http://forum.winmxworld.com/index.php/topic,10932.0.html

Opennap is not affected by these same attacks, you might like to give it a try.... to refresh your memory about opennap, have a read at the link below....
http://www.winmxworld.com/tutorials/opennap.html

You can also download this file http://www.gotnap.com/servers.wsx and use the import button and find the file in the location you saved it to

welcome back to winmx  :)

Thank you for the response.  I remember the attacks from when I used it before, also remember there was always a good response to the attacks. I will give a look to the links you provided to see if it helps. I certainly hope things can be reconfigured in such a way that this awesome program can do what it was originally designed to do. My father, badadi2d,  was so very committed to WinMX back when he was alive, he spent almost all of his last days, weeks, and months signed on to  MX. I got to know many of the people from all parts of the world he was acquainted with in one of the rooms...I think the room was called Movie Realm.
