Toy Racer Online, can't connect

Post by niZ »

Hey all,
So I'm using a DreamPi to play online. It works flawlessly with every game I play except Toy Racer. I cannot get online. I made sure the Dreamcast is in DMZ. It just doesn't want to connect(it goes almost immediately to "Disconnecting"), I tried so many different rips(TOSEC, GDI, CDI) and all the same result. Any ideas?

Looks like the server crashed. Just started it up again so it should work now.

Thanks for fixing it. Unfortunately it still will not connect.
Here's what I get:

I've been trying to connect for about two weeks ever since I got the DreamPi. Not sure what the issue is.

Ah ok, that's probably a configuration issue then. I think Toy Racer might not see ISP configuration from some browsers. Not sure what you used to configure it but you might try XDP web browser.

This was the problem. I used Quake to configure the ISP settings before. I loaded up XDP web browser and configured the settings within Planet Web 2.6 and now it connects! So awesome, thank you so much for the help pcwzrd13. :D
