Question

Internet spades not working

I am still using Windows XP. Yeah I know but I hate change! Anyway, the Internet Spades game that comes pre-installed on the PC quit working a few days ago. It says it cannot connect with server. Anyone else getting this? Any solutions?

Thanks for your response R Profitt, but how do I do that? The pages you sent me to were all for Windows 7. I am still running XP.

It's more or less the same. The DNS is given in the network properties.

But, for such an old program, it's quite well possible that Microsoft stopped the server it ran on.
