> > I'm running MF 1.09 under W2K with RA2. It appears to do nothing: no error messages, nothing. The window is named, "Offline FPW FTP". What is the story as to whether it works for WOL or XWIS? The help page isn't. It doesn't appear to start. There was no "installation": it's an executable file. No documentation in MF.zip. Please advise.
> WOL is down and MF doesn't support XWIS.
That's not an answer. I wouldn't have written unless MF didn't work EVER, even when WOL is up. The fact that it was down when I wrote is pure coincidence; I tried it many times when WOL was up. You haven't addressed any of the other points I brought up about MF. Since I've never seen it do anything, is there any indication at all from MF when it is running or connected? How does it indicate that it is filtering? From within RA2, or on its own screen, in which case I can't see it if RA2 is full-screen. As lead design & programmer of MF, you could probably answer these things, or maybe you just don't care anymore.
> Play on XWIS without MF (you won't need it).
Why not? I'm low-ranked, and would rather not get killed in QM by players who outrank me, even if there are only 8 people on line. XWIS players are pretty damn good.
