Did this die?

I was seriously into netrek 17 years ago. With the release of Rocket League, I went goggling for netrek
hockey, which led me here. It seems that I missed the revival by two months.

Any chance any clue-but-rust games will happen any time soon? I miss people complaining about Tywong.

Game?

Have we lost momentum _already_?

Shouldn't someone be calling a game for the first Sunday of this month
on pickled?

Sorry guys I wasn't able to make it on Sunday but I'll try next time.  I'll see if I can drag a couple of friends  join as well. 

Hopefully, we can keep this going.

Thanks to everyone who showed up for our monthly netrek game. We had 5x5
for 90 minutes. We had 2 newbies there and I think they had a lot of fun.
Next game will be Sunday June 7 at 6pm EST.

I would like to see this event become a weekly event rather than monthly
if we can continue to get some people in for t.
 
Nimret, do you think you can reach out to the RCE folks and see if any
of them would be interested?

I was one of the newbies! (iggyvolz) :D
I was only able to stay for about half an hour... I had almost no clue what
I was doing. I just found a ship from the other team, went to Warp 11
(Warp 12 is broken on MacTrek for some reason) to get close, and then
engaged.
 
Sorry I disconnected multiple times... MacTrek has a few bugs where it
crashes on death, one especially when you die when cloaked.

Sadly I'm pretty sure the MacTrek client is no longer being actively
maintained/developed.
 
Some tips for newbies: don't worry so much about trying to kill the enemy
ships, dogfighting takes times to master. You can be helpful by calling
enemy carriers and escorting your carrier (has armies).

gg. It has been a *long* time since I tried to play seriously. Apparently I have an account on pickled, but I don't remember the password!
 
I kind of sucked, and didn't watch the message board well enough, and my team lost, but I took a few planets and nailed a few carriers. So that was something.

No comment. With my patches to the client, there's no easy way I can
identify you. ;-)

I'm the maintainer.
 
If you're willing, talk to me off-list about this. You are probably
lacking something that I may recognise.
 
Debian has a package, which is fairly modern day, and may be useful
for understanding the dependencies.
 
Gentoo is the IKEA flat pack of operating systems, and my guess is
there's a screw missing.

Anybody here?  Stumbled upon this game on the RIT Computer Science House.  Not one to turn down a challenge, I installed the client on my Mac (I couldn't get it to compile), and I compiled the server code on a fresh Elementary OS [Ubuntu fork with a better UI] (okay so I tried to compile it for a few hours, it didn't work, then I'm like "oh look there's an apt-get package :D").  So many 32-bit libraries!!!
 
Do people still play this or will I be reduced to hoping there's another soul in the world who plays this thing?  And if so, are the servers still up?

Hi Jeremy,
 
Sadly netrek has been nonexistent for well over a year now. We are trying
to revive it by holding a monthly pickup game. We just had our first game
today. Maybe you can make the next game. Go to www.netrek.org and download
a client.

You were making a telnet request, not an http request.

Yes, pickled doesn't respond to http request.  No reason to.

Yes, continuum did respond to http request, because of a feature
being tried out years ago.  No reason to keep it, so I've turned it
off.
