The email address is: support [at] slitherine.co.uk
You can get you ip address from an online tool like: https://whatismyipaddress.com/
The client version number is the build version of the client used

I'm curious what the ip address has to do with finding out why some games have been rendered unplayable by Slitherene's latest update to the PBEM system.
Are certain regions blocked from accessing your new PBEM system?

Thanks for reply
BUT
client is build / version number of the client used, so no not serial number
"hi zakblood. client is build? Version number of client used?"
In other words no idea and then
The client version number is the build version of the client used?
What are these and where do I find them
Know the email address and IP address, I am using a HP desktop pc (Windows Vista Home Premium) and a Dell laptop (Windows 10)

+ we need an IP because most players are not seeing these issues and it allows us to look at the logs and compare your experience to what is happening on the server.

+ the client version number is usually shown on the title screen, or the options screen, inside the game. It of course varies with each game. You can generally see the version number shown on the My Page download page for a title (assume you are using the latest version).

Cheers

You'd better be right about "most players not seeing these issues" or else you'll be on a rough ride the next days.

Hi Support
Still cannot login to the Server using BA
Error message is "The Server has been unable to validate your details" Please contact Support forums.

Using Windows 10. Was working fine until the server changeover.
I have emailed Support with the game and IP details but there is still no change and I cannot log in

Is it related to uploading the turn to the server?
