$135.50 Left to Reach our Goal!

Every year we run a fundraiser to cover the cots of the server for the next year. This last year we had to upgrade servers due to an attack and the costs are a little higher, but as you can all tell it is much faster and much more reliable.  VERY IMPORTANT even though myZIP is reduced to 1MB you can still download courses and libraries by clicking on the course or library name on the Download Tab.  We need to raise $2,500 in order to increase everyone's myZIP size back to 30 MB and for those who have donated in the past once we reach our goal your myZIP file size will be increased back to 1GB. Members who made a donation of $5 or more in the last 30 days have already had their's increased. We recommend a donation of $25 however every dollar counts, however to increase your MyZip size you need to make a donation of $5 USD or more. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU ARE LOGGED IN BEFORE MAKING A CONTRIBUTION.

It seems that lately, whenever I try to create a game in the Lobby I get a an error stating" Couldnt create a game, the name might already be in use". What name? And how do I solve the problem?

Hiya PDemery,

A lot of people are receiving that message lately, especially Windows 10 users.
Sometimes people can t host a game, but they can join other games.
Not sure how to solve that problem, i will put it also in the shoutbox, hopefully someone will know a solution for that.

Are you talking about in Game Ranger? Once Game Ranger takes you into the game, you can change the lobby name to whatever you want. Try that.

Thanks for the response, Gordo, but I don't use Game Rangers anymore. It kept bouncing back to desktop when more than 2 players played in the same game.
We use Hamachi now (four players meeting every Wednesday morning) and have had no real problems with it.
I did try creating a new ani (PC Player)to try to solve my problem, but still received the same error message. Weired. Anyone else experience this? As it stands now, I cannot set up a new game. Has to be someone else, unless I completely uninstall TW and reinstall,and not quite ready to go through all that yet :-)

I had that happen years ago. I seem to remember it being some kind of conflict with a port issue. The more tech savvy people would know better.

Also, look at this post.

I believe I had that problem(I think) I had several libraries that I could not UNINSTALL. I messaged Gunpower61/Pat. Got the Registry Keys for said libraries. Went into the registry, deleted them. Reinstalled them. Things seemed to work fine, since. Not sure this will help with the problem. But check and see if you have libraries that will not uninstall. A word of caution...going into really not advised.
