This is not about central server, but a problem with the account validation. In this case it means RVZT did not answer. Does Zach has any idea, has there been some problems recently in the server?
2. Not being able to connect to P2P Network. This problem is happening more frequently now than ever did according to the people reporting, also for me.
It's a wonder it has even worked this long. The P2P network used (by KadC library) is Overnet. Those old enough may remember eDonkey filesharing network. Overnet was eDonkey's P2P. Due to the nature of P2P networks, the less people using it the harder to join is, and I'd imagine the amount of people using eDonkey nowadays is quite small.
The correct solution would be to start using some other P2P library than KadC. However that's quite a bit effort.
3. The famouse Kadc.ini crashing RV House problem. Which doesn't let you login unless you remove it from RV House/conf but this quick-fix doesn't fix the problem permanently.
As I wrote above, KadC should be replaced. Fixing KadC is probably more effort than it's worth since it should be replaced anyway.
For the time being perhaps it would be best to disable the P2P mode altogether and only use centralized server. But Abc said that some people are having trouble connecting to the centralized server, like it couldn't handle all the people. The centralized server is running on a virtual server that Urnemanden graciously put up when my own server died. Does Urnemanden have any idea why the centralized server wouldn't handle the load now?
