« on: March 13, 2013, 01:14:01 am »
hi, use to use mx awhile back but got new pc and the old mx wouldnt conect at all. so i downloaded the latest and it connects fine.
however, chat stays blank so cant find any rooms or whatever. search is useless. yes i have been browsing forums for answers and have seen that there are issues with search.
getting chat to work so i can find my old rooms to hang out in could help.
Im no tech savy, had to have some help last time i set up old mx.

Hi XTC, sorry to be the bearer of bad news but this is the situation we face atm...

A temporary solution to the chat list issue can be found on that same page.

There is good news however as a group formed and started work when the network protocol attacks began, to build a duplicate MX that gets us past the problem of being unable to update the old client due to the developer disappearing and never passing on his src code.

This is our progress so far and we are still working hard to reach a public beta , atm there is much still to do as the old client has many hundreds of controls and each requires a few lines of in some cases hundreds of lines of code to do something useful, however the main parts of the client are in place and we are tying up ends in most cases.

I hope you bear with us while we do our best to deliver what we hope will be the solution to all the current problems and those creating them

Im guessing the problems still exist. I just recently installed WinMX again after a few years absence and I'm getting the same problem as the other guy. When I do a search, I get 4,000 hits, none of which are related to the search. My search screen looks exactly like the first posters screen shot. Like him, I'm not really tech savvy so I have no idea how to fix this. Maybe there is no fix available, but that's why Im posting. To find out if you guys ever came up with a fix or is it still messed up? Thanks for any help.

Hi Spiderwolf  :)

The advice in my previous post remains the same and we are still working on a "whole network" fix, in the mean time there are two options open to you atm

1) Use the OpenNap side of WinMX to search for files.

2) Visit the chat rooms using the list found here and browse users to see if they have anything you might like.

you need simply to copy the room name from the above list and paste the name it into the box at the top of your winmx channel list page and hit "Join" to visit the selected room.

I hope this helps and rest assured we are doing our best to remove all these extra steps to enjoying the network as you might remember it.
