Hornet Leader II installation down?

Postby blackice » August 19th, 2010, 7:54 am

Hello!

I can not install Hornet Leader II anymore. After starting to load, the installation breaks off with an error message:

"Unable to launch the application"
"Unable to load resource: (http://www.vassalengine.org/ws/VASSAL.jar, 3.0.6)"
"java.io.IOException: missing version response from server"

Unsurprisingly, this happens on completely unrelated machines (Lenovo X61 running Windows XP and iMac running Snow Leopard).
Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated!

I have in parallel emailed DVG and would post any response from them here.

This is a known problem due to the site migration. I'm travelling right
now, so won't have time to fix it before next week.

Thanks for your quick response.

I would be grateful if you could post a short note here once it is fixed and accessible again.

All the best on your travels,

Martin

I haven't had time to do anything about the problem yet. I might
sometime this week.

Hi Joel,

Thanks for looking into this.

However, it looks like we still have the same problem. I did a fresh download of the HLII game and the HLII demo. Here are the error messages.

It would be great if you could find a fix.

Best regards

Thanks for the screenshots.

HLII is using a request scheme different from the other WS requests I've
seen. I added an extra rule to translate the ", "-delimited request to
real filenames on our server. Try now.

Hi Joel,

Unfortunately, no change. I still get identical error messages.

Thanks for keeping at it!

At this point, it's not clear to me what I should try next. Is there
a compelling reason why this module can't be converted to work with
VASSAL 3.1 so that I can simply avoid solving this problem?

Joel, I do not know as it is a commercial module distributed by DVG. I have reached out Dan Verssen and his response was: "Rodney is moving the install files to a different server. We should have things running again in a couple days." That was over a week ago.

I will follow up with Dan, including your suggestion in my message.

Best regards

Was this ever sorted out? I've been wanting to get back into this game for months but have been unable to...

Hi DrTeeth,

Dan at DVG an his crew are having troubles fixing the problem. I understand from Dan that they are on it but don't know how long it will take them. They will post on their website (and hopefully here) once it is resolved.
