FYI, Test Server's store appears to be completely down at this time, and has been since this morning.

Fantastic tool.  Spent about an hour and a half getting all my characters just on Pinnacle downloaded.

To the codewiz behind this...  You are beyond category.

Are you able to ping cityofheroes.com from a command line?

Hmm... How about tracert cityofheroes.com?  Does it at least make it out to the internet before it dies?

Sounds like something kicked in and started blocking outgoing traffic.  You can still get to other places, though?

Seems almost like your anti-virus/web/firewall saw something it didn't like and automatically blocked CoH from getting out.  I'm not sure what else to look at.

Anyone else have any ideas?

Mmm.... question. I know Sentinel can't render any graphics, but are there any utilities that can? Now that I know where the Architect files are, I'd be interested in editing them while I wait for whatever happens to CoH to complete.

Not sure what it is you're looking for... a CoH asset renderer, maybe? Nemerle said something about being able to convert *.geo files, but getting constructed characters/costumes out of memory would be something else.

Perhaps someone has a way of bypassing the latest NCSoft launcher to test if 3D Ripper DX can snag things out of CoH? I haven't figured a way of connecting to the game server without going through the client since the "-project coh" (cohtest/cohbeta) command line was disabled.

Guys, I feel like the Doctor in the library...

Spanky the Loveclown has been saved!

I honestly can't thank you enough for this.  Even if nothing else happens, I always still have him as a slightly different collection of 1s and 0s.

May you live long and prosper.

Si

I guess so; I don't really know what they would be called. Yeah, I was thinking of something that could form a model of a character from memory...

Setting Sentinel+ to run as administrator worked.

Given that the XML format of the output from Sentinel+ is well-formed, would it be possible to write a convertor that read an XML file from Sentinel+ and either output an mxd file for Mid's Hero Designer or another text format that Mid's could import?

If it's not just one computer, there's something else in the way.  My first guess was a routing issue somewhere out on the internet, but if everything else is getting out and the CoH related traffic isn't even able to leave your house, that doesn't add up.  The fact that your phone can't reach the CoH website really doesn't make any sense.

Is anyone else you know in the area able to access any of the CoH websites?

Possibly relevant question: Where in the world are you?  I mean, geographically?  I don't need your address, but I'm wondering if they're shutting down access to certain countries or something.  I highly doubt that and I don't want to start any rumors, but I'm just curious.

Also, what is the output when you run the tracert command as Eabrace mentioned above?  I don't just mean the final no reply message, but do you see any replies from any routers in the chain?

Regarding the phone, I also suspect that what might be happening is that his Internet router might have some firewall on it that's blocking all traffic from his house to NCsoft.  His phone would be affected if, when he's at home, he's connected via WiFi instead of 3G or 4G.  Try turning the WiFi off on your phone and then getting to the forums or www.cityofheroes.com.  If that works, then it's probably your Internet router.  I can't help you with that (well, I could, but I'm killer busy right now), but try getting into your router configuration, normally via a link such as this one, and looking at your firewall configuration on it.
