Our website DNS provider is experiencing sporadic problems, which is affecting new content downloads, our online server listings, and automatic map downloads.

We are working on resolving this issue, but this may take some time.

Manually installing content

If you receive a "Can't connect to remote server" error in game, then you can manually install the content:

Manually finding games

If the server list is empty or gives an error, you can still direct connect to games manually.

Players are using our IRC channel to organize games via direct connect.

Manually installing maps

The automatic map downloads are not functioning, so the game will produce an exception and close if you attempt to connect to a server running a custom map that you do not have installed.
You can manually install missing maps to the OpenRA/maps/<MOD> directory indicated above.
