Default Install Problem

Been reading about this app for a bit and decided to try it out. But the installer stops when attempting to contact www.chaoscraft.net/eqj/EQJ.application. Appears the domain is not responding.

Any ideas why?

I just started playing with this last night, it'd be awesome if not for the hanging. It's definitely related to the leaderboard server; using TCPView, I found that the program is only unresponsive while trying to contact 70.173.98.65:13002 (TCP). If I rightclick -> close connection, it starts responding again right away.. unfortunately, it's still pretty much unusable as the program tries to connect again every 30 seconds or so.

Aye it connected to his server for update information,I have no clue why its gone quiet or anything,which is a shame as it was very handy once you did the manual input to update the info from your char.
Donno if he ran into some legal issues or something but it went dead after June 03rd update and hasn't posted anything since.

Well, I came up with a really, really, really, REALLY ugly workaround for anyone who wants to continue using this while the server is down. Not going into painstaking detail here, please know what you're doing if you're going to attempt this.

Requirements:
Windows Powershell (I'm using the version included with 7 Pro, don't know anything about the older ones.)
wKillcx v1.0.1 (Utility for searching for and closing TCP connections from the command line, v1.0.0 has a bug that renders it useless for this workaround)

Make sure wkillcx.exe is in C:\ or somewhere else in your PATH variable.

Create a batch file C:\killeqj.bat with the following contents, the line is repeated since EQJ tries to connect twice:
Code:
wkillcx 70.173.98.65:13002
wkillcx 70.173.98.65:13002
Next create a text file with the following and save it as C:\killeqj.ps1
Code:
$i=0
Do{.\killeqj.bat; Start-Sleep -m 500}
while ($i=1)
Now, open Powershell (must have admin rights for this) and type cd\ to change the directory to C:\, then enter the following command:
Code:
.\killeqj.ps1
This will search for and close any connections to the offending server twice every half-second, pretty much eliminating the hanging. On my system there was no noticable slowdown or resource usage, wkillcx is written in assembly so it's pretty efficient.. but if there's a noticable slowdown, adjust the number after Start-Sleep to the desired number of milliseconds between repeats. It will loop endlessly and can be minimized to the background while you work, to stop the loop just press CTRL+C in the powershell window. You can start this script running at any point, doesn't matter if EQJ is running already or not.

Just tried it... This sudden silence is sounding fishy to me. I wish the installer had created a Restore point
