View Full Version : Ghost++ (non GUI version) help

5th August 2009, 03:36 AM

Upon attempting to enter my own server I get this error.
The big mystery here though is, just yesterday I was hosting with outside players and lan players. What made this error happen? My configs are the same, my lan IP is the same, my router still has my ports opened, my anti-virus (even though with it on yesterday working fine) is turned off. I can't figure out what's wrong.
Edit - More info: I attempt to join my server through the server list, not by typing in the name. And even after trying to join, and failing. It still shows up in the server list.

Are you using ghost ++ ?

Yeah. Not to be rude, but it is in the thread title. Unless I am mistaken and Ghost++ is only the GUI version. I've checked my logs and nothing appears to be out of the ordinary.

EDIT: Sorry, double posted.

I guess I'm retarted :D

You need a loopback adapter: http://eurobattle.net/showthread.php?t=77303

I'll give it a go, I don't understand why it worked yesterday with online and lan players though. Does everyone in my local area network need it? (Loopback that is). If you say "no" then I have a different problem that needing Loopback.

EDIT: Solved - Upon restarting my computer (finished what I've been downloading all day!) it works perfectly again. I guess this really should have been the first thing I tried. But I couldn't as I was downloading. Seems I did not need Loopback. Thanks for the help though.

In simple words, loopback (try to translate "loop" and "back" :) ) is just an addon adapter to allow you to connect to yourself if your router/modem cant handle it.
