If the latest version has a problem, please help me pin-point it.

I just downloaded latest version from the website and was able to join all rooms just fine.

Can you share exactly your Lux version #s and which host they have problems joining?

Could it actually be a problem with older host versions?

running macos 10.15.3
version 6.64 (1) cant join mikeyg his room Rome 2

mikeyg
✱ Connecting to LuxServer at 97.91.144.xxx port 6619... ✱
✱ Connection to remote host lost ✱

I send you a video on whatsapp to.

we got lots of new hosts and some of them i cant join to.
i believe when KCF is running linux i cant join it to.

Older version of lux i can join everything.
Can you already share the older version please?

remember KCF en RogueMonk couldn't join the titan server? after they downloaded this latest version? You updated your titan server and that fixed it. I believe when i have the latest version and people are hosting with an older version or linux, i cant join them. Maybe you can but i and others cant.

I am still getting it from some of the "new" servers popping up. For example, can't join the mikeyg room. Get that same error.

Guys, mikeyg is not running the newest server, and I believe that's causing the problem. I'm pretty sure the real problem is in the room host server, although it shows up when you try and join a bugged host with the newest client. I am now forcing all rooms to be running 6.64 in order to host, and we'll see if this solves it.

There are issues with the older versions, which is why moving back to older versions isn't a good solution. Real solution is verifying the newest version works and getting everyone onto that.

LOL - I just saw my version was outdated too :-) I had 6.59 but using the program's menu to check for update it said: no update available.
So as tip for everybody: download the update manually using the link above Dustin posted. That really seems to fix some problems …

LITTLE SUM-UP:
actual version = 6.64, UPDATE -> Download-Link
if you forgot your Registration code: use this link please and it will be re-send to your email, you used at registration

I updated the version checker so it should let everyone know about the latest 6.64 now. Thanks for pointing that out. It's been quite a while since I did an update!
