Online play never finds games

Have a question, suggestion, or comment about Aleph One's features and functionality (Lua, MML, the engine itself, etc)? Post such topics here.

Every time I click join new game, i never find anybody online. An earlier post said the server and temporary server were both down, but I don't know if this is still true. Any advice would be useful. I play M3 on a mac, usually about 1-4 o'clock central standard time, and have only found one other person online, who never does anything.

I'm afraid there just aren't many people left who play. Try joining in the evening, maybe more people will be around then.

As TL said, not many people play anymore. Every once in awhile I'll pop in to find a small crowd, however. Usually at night (after 6PM central). I believe the FCAW group still play Marathon on occasion.

FCAW does indeed still play when they're scheduled. Do know that they give FCAW members priority for being gathered.

Your best bet is trying mostly evenings, but also when schools are on break, whether it be for summer or Christmas. An example from this past January....

Thanks for the info, I actually got into my first online match today against one other person. I will try finding games according to what i've been told.

"For Carnage Apply Within." They're from bungie.net and play premeditated games. Pretty creepy if you ask me.
