fuyuki os : windows vista Business SP2
boojum and toshi had same experience with me.
They could login the server, but no response.
boojum os :windows7/Home Premium/SP1/64bit
toshi os: windows7 Home Premium
and I tested it on windows xp sp3 32 bit.
It showed the message "Checking server settings.." permanently.
I could not login the server.
fuyuki logged in,setup a 5 pt match, I joined him, we played out the match and he won. I am assuming he has the same language settings as everyone else in Japan ie Japanese so we can rule that out as the source of the issues. Someone the other day created a user name with a peroid (.) that caused problmes but i dont see that issue with anyone currently registerd. (make sure nobody used that in password too) I would very much like to have all Japanese players join and play as many super japanese backgammon players but what can i do. As you can see on my toplist tab there is players with thousands experience points and many countries represented.
I can suggest something, ask your friend fuyuki to log in with your username password to see if he can do it. If so then somehow we have to try to find difference from your systems to his systems
