Have a question? Ask here! Have an answer for a question? Post here! Some of you may be aware that I have been unable to play on the servers much lately due to University, so I have decided to start an Empire wide FAQ thread which will enable me to do something for the community whilst still focusing on Universtiy . There will be 5 posts here, as people ask questions, and give answers I'll add them to the relevant sections. Post 1: Connection Issues & General QuestionsPost 2: Forum QuestionsPost 3: Game Related QuestionsPost 4: In-Game Related QuestionsPost 5: FactsISSUES CONNECTING:Can't connect to minecraft.net: Notch's Login server is down or having issues. You can keep trying again or try later. (EmpireMinecraft has no way of solving this for you)User Not Premium: This is something that happens if you clicked play offline or Notch's server somehow set you to offline mode because of a bug or glitch or maybe he rebooted the server. The best thing to do here is to exit your client and try again a reboot can't hurt or delete your bin folder and try again. If your using a illegal client don't bother trying to play here. (EmpireMinecraft has no way of solving this for you)Disconnected by Server Failed to Verify Username: Just like all the rest of the silly errors this one is basically having issues trying to verify your user name just like the user not premium and also something we have no control over. (EmpireMinecraft has no way of solving this for you)Internal client error: java.net.ConnectException: Connection timed out: connect This is another Notch one this usually means that our server can't connect Notch's Server at all. Almost like his server was shutdown or rebooting or worse. (EmpireMinecraft has no way of solving this for you)Disconnected by Server Took too long to log in This is like the error above but usually means Notch's Server is online and running but it's under heavy attack or to many connections and it's so laggy that our server just can't contact it. (EmpireMinecraft has no way of solving this for you)Failed to connect the server Connection refused: connect This means the server you are trying to connect to is offline or that you are not able to connect because a firewall, router or even a certain network is not letting you connect to our server. Due to Justin's awesomeness, this error hardly pops up, he prefers to keep this one from showing at a minimum Internal client error: java.net.UnknownHostException: http://www.minecraft.net This means you are trying to connect to the Server 1.2_01 with a 1.1_02 client. Delete the bin folder in%appdata%/.minecraft/binPost 1: General QuestionsQuestion: What is this thread for?Answer: In an attempt to alleviate stress and confusing by player and moderator alike, I believe an Empire wide FAQ is a terrific idea!Question: I have a question, is there a format I should ask it in?Answer: I would suggest asking each individual question with "Question:" at the beginning.
