What happens when you run it? What exactly do you mean by it won't work?

uhhh... I've tried downloading the "executable installer" like a million times already. It downloads fine, the problem is running the bloody program. I know that nod32 in advanced heuristics reads blocktrix as an infection and blah blah blah. I work around that, and try running btrix070.exe and i get this: C:\Users\...\Desktop\btrix070.exe is not a valid Win32 application. I'm sure I'm doing something wrong. So if you can help me out, please do so. Thanks a lot!
 
 
P.S. Heyy Kelly!! Haha, it's exciting to find you here, babe Happy
Well, see you around.

Got the same problem, "this version of blocktrix has expired" even though I'm using the latest version. This problem seems to come and go, it worked perfectly a couple of days ago.

okay, I think my problem is a compatibily issue. Nobody else seems to have the same problem. I guess it's cuz i'm running it on windows vista. So, strikelight, am I right? and if so, do you think the next blocktrix release can be compatible with vista?
 
I have my doubts tho, cuz i ran blocktrix 0.69 on vista already, and that worked fine. oh well. please help   Smiley

So it seems we can't connect because 0.70 expired?
 
I have no reason to complain about not getting the next beta version out on time, but can we PLEASE drop the hard expiration date thing?  It seems every time one beta version expires, the new one isn't out yet.

There's another thread about this. Change the date on your computer to a few days ago and the problem goes away.  Made me very happy.... about 10 minutes trying to play on the regular Tetrinet client was all I could stand. Tongue

Isn't it time to perhaps release a version of Blocktrix that does not expire? And make future updates optional (as in most other softwares).

Hi! I used to be able to play blocktrix, but recently tried to play and it gave me the message that it had expired. So I went to download/install the NEW .70... and it still says it's expired. Also, when I try to connect to a server it says "Invalid client type/mode. If you use blocktrix, you must select TetriNet mode to play TetriFast." I just want to play tetrinet Sad And I am in Tetrinet mode... help?

Isn't it possible to avoild the update by just removing the row
source Scripts/update.tcl from startup.tcl script?
 
It's just a guess. I'm on vista now and don't have the old 0.69 client. (and the new one won't run at vista)

Spork, scroll up a couple lines. Just backdate your computer to early August and it should be all good. It's lame that you have to do that right now, but it works.

Same here. I've given up on this whole mess. Nobody even has the same problem I'm having.  Sad
I'm sure blocktrix will be filled with people after SL fixes this version, but sometimes I wonder how long blocktrix will last. Not to worry though, I'm sure it still has many more miles to go. Peace!  Smiley

Wow when blocktrix breaks for a long time ppl actually take the effort to join the forums...but it's sorta sad that it takes that much for anyone to actually post!  Hmm...I'm sure it will all be better soon enough.
