I can't seem to load descent.cx, including the server list. I'm glad for the Descent Valhalla tracker, it's just I've been so used to always going to descent.cx to get games. Is the site down?

Hmm. Maybe "down" isn't quite the right word, and I probably shouldn't have said that I "couldn't load the page."

Instead, what I get when I go to the site is:

Good news - http://descentvalhalla.com/tracker/ still up!

Of course, you're joining games using Vortex, though, right?

I started using descent.cx when I was on my win98SE box and, for some mysterious reason, Vortex stopped working. I can't for the life of me remember why, maybe something about not updating and being too incompetent to get whatever fix existed, or something. But I got by.

I recently redownloaded and started using Vortex again (before descent.cx apparently expired) and decided I'd just stick with it. After all, it means a lot to be able to easily also join chats full of people who just idle 24/7, right? Occasionally Vortex's auto-download doesn't give me any good links to some missions though and Descent Valhalla usually but not always has these missions.

Shouldn't be much of a problem since the only missions played are Indika, Veins, and Subway Prancer.

Sometimes, if vortex is interrupted during that loading screen it gets thrown all out of whack. What I found is that you can just delete and redownload vortex and it will work again. What I actually did was install vortex, set it up the way I like it, then I copied the folder. If it gets into a non-working state it's as simple as copy and paste. I'm not 100% sure, but I think you can just paste it directly over the existing, that way you don't lose any chat logs or whatever you've saved.

If I remember right, back when I had that problem, simply redownloading it off of slyclan.de and then deleting and reinstalling it didn't fix the problem. I think there was maybe some site that had a different version of it or something, but it's all past stuff now. Not like I had anything important on it anyway.

Damn, again? I hope it comes back up. More choice is better for the community.

Speaking of which..

...it's back. But it doesn't seem to show all the servers.

Too legit to quit?
