Post by MACINTOSH » Tue Nov 24, 2015 8:15 pm

Hello. I'm Macintosh, a new member.

My guess is that the server is offline. Make sure it is online first. Then check to see if the problem is a difference in YS Flight versions (2011 vs 2015). Also make sure you have the correct map.

When you visit the server list, you can check the red "Offline" box to hide the servers that are offline.

Ok from what I understand is that OP tried to connect to "play.ysfhq.org" thinking it is the main server.

Well from what I know is that there is no "play.ysfhq.org" server.

If you want to know what servers are online click the server list link at the top of the page or click here

There is. It's the official HQ server. It is offline most of the times I check the list.
