The server for IM is the same one that runs the forum, so there shouldn't be a problem there.  Basically the issue is on the client side-- the Visual Basic 6 FTP controls are really really bugged.

If the error you get is that it can't disconnect, try letting it run for a bit anyway and see if you don't get a few bots going to and from.

Having the same problem with DB 2.43.1L, crashes when I try to connect to IM. Didn't use to have any problems as far as I recall... probably need to delete some corrupt file or something...
But last I checked I couldn't find anyone on IM for a while, so haven't been in a rush to figure out whats wrong.

Try deleting the "Sharing" directory (I think that's the one), and see if it recreates it.  I think there's a bug where if the folders are half created or something it will crash.

Anybody on IM, have you seen my HSLiteSammeh? How is it doing?

In my sim it was dominating until I introduced FruitFliesv0.21, it's still putting up a good fight though.

That post you're relying to is very old... it was about old IM.

Is anyone still running it now? (2+ years later)

If not, can anyone direct me to some interesting threads about what eventually happened? I'd love to hear about the mutation results of such a large sim.

We never really got anything solid out of it. I am planning to try again once we re-work the IM to be p2p.

This is a nice looking history; and some is humorous.

Nice find Tilthanseco.
That system worked pretty well, why did we abandon it?

so is this internet mode like a massive world where many species of bots come and compete?  :huh:
