go to http://beta.zone.com

Then go to the aoe:ror link which will take you to the zone beta aoe:ror page

Connect to the game room and the downloads will begin. They are very short!

There are some great features you need to check it out

Zone name: _CuC_CaL

The server is not responding, so I could not get through.

What's the deal? Is this competition for the zone. Does it have less lag?

Well forget the age restrictions (who gives a..), I can't even get anywhere near the zone to start with. Nothing responds their side. Maybe they don't like me?

BTW, it seems that you can't download the stuff with netscape, from what I have seen. My netscape won't work with the new zone, and I kow sarmis_Vixen had to D/L MIE in order to use the new zone.

It seems to work with my Navigator, which I use for the express purpose of playing games online 'cause I don't get those stupid ActiveX errors. BTW, I use Communicator 4.06, which is, as far , as I know, is the most recent.


EDIT: My bad, I have 4.61, which is the most recent.

Reality check, simperson: I use Netscape 4.5 and this might not even be the most recent version.

But like Dio said, I actually had to d/l fucking IE to get the zone to work - of course in connection to SEVERAL more software downloads.

I'm not amused. And w/in one game tonite, I got weird psychodelic colors SEVERAL times, a 60's nightmare and I had to alt-tab out every time to correct this. My heartfelt "BLEH" on the "new zone".

Remember, the bug ratio between two releases remains the same, only the bugs themselves change!

i just think its funny that when the zone goes down the grippers come out. ive been playing on the zone for 2 years or so now , and the times theyve been down u can count on one hand. when all is well noone says great job all u zoners who work so hard for us to play games, but if somthing doent work right or heaven forbit we might have to do a bit o work to get somthing working its always the zone bites. well i say kuddos to the zone staff keep up the good work. and if the zone is down well ... go read a book

LOL this is wild but I have to agree with J_e_s_u_s_freak here folks, over all the zone has been pretty darn stable and reliable, but you also have to keep in mind that we all are dealing with Billy Boy of MICROSHAFT and their full functional Bugs ooppss did I say bugs No I Meant Features, that's it Features, that they have with every release of software built and designed by kids for kids, but Billy has us by the ***** and there isn't much we can do about it, where's good ole Netscape when you need it....See ya on the Zone soon...I hope

I am going to defend the zone here...Obviously Microsoft is trying to get rid of netscape, some people (half?) with netscape can get on it.

You forget what the Zone has been doing here, they redesigned the zone gave you tons of new features that are still being debugged and tested it with several dozen people.

Now, take the fact that the new version of the zone hasn't been tested with tons of people on it and is still buggy and add 25,000+ people to it and see what you got? It could of crashed or been too crowded and the people at the Zone decided to close it down temporarily to try to make it to handle more people, who knows?

But honestly, hasn't the zone been good to you most of the time (95% to me).

Vix, did that happen to you to?
I played one game last night or tried, but upon launching RoR, the screen was totally fucked up, the screen was on drugs.
The pictures shaked up and down, moved to the side and blurred. I had to turn off the screen 10 times during 2 mins while there was a BIG lag. Maybe it is my grapichs driver or directx or my screen is getting old or xxx problem

Right now I a really ******!
First they somehow manage to screw with my ror(Since it happened to vix to I am guessing it is their fault), and then I go to the support to get help and they make me go through 5 pages of info filling.
And around this time they tell me they can't help me because I am not a US/US territories/Canada citizen. #$@$@ Microcrap #?$@!!!!

I finallly figured it out yesterday( 1 1/2 hrs getting it to work!!!!!!). I think we all need to get used to it, and then it will be great in a week or so when everything is all worked out.
Oh yeah, and I love that song J_e_s_u_s_Freak

Cruentus, Alt-Tab is a windows hotkey that switches from one window (or task) to another one. When the display gets messed up, switching from one window to another and then back will clear up the display because it has to regenerate it.

I found out that as long as I play 800x600 I am fine, but this applies to my whole comp, during bootup I get the same crap on the BIOS bootup.
Still annoyed but at least I can play. Though I really really hate playing aoe at that screen size.
