    I don't have any at this moment. I wouldn't be of any help telling you things that you already know such as "it looks unstable".

    I have reported the incidents. That's the best I can do. The cause should soon be identified and the problem fixed.

    How hard can it be to run a lobby server?

    Code:
    10 run lobby.exe
    20 in case of General Failure, go to 10
    Something like that :) ?

    SimBin = phaaaael.

    Even the notorious rFactor matchmaker has never been down anywhere near this long.

    Maybe it changed something for the lobby server? Maybe it needs to be manually restarted. Now lets pray its not an official holiday in Sweden like here in the Netherlands, otherwise its bye bye racing for today :(

    Major setback in sinbim games, now i have to entertain myself in rFactor!
    - Wouldn't it have been better, if they actually had an actual update ready when they "updated" the lobbies monday?!

    Code:
    10 run lobby.exe
    20 in case of General Failure, go to lunch
    that's more like it. :thumb:


    Arcoording to their post they are switchin out the hardware, so maybe not so simple, but I think 8hrs in simbin land = 8 days in the real world.

    Actually it is:
    Code:
    10 run lobby.exe
    20 in case of General Failure, go hide for 4 - 10 days

    I'd imagine even once the server comes back up it'll take a little time for the games to start appearing ... bit by bit I guess.
