    Windows 10 wins!

    Ever since I upgraded my Windows to 10, BBM stopped recognizing played matches and updated rosters.
    Google did not yield any sensible results, so I am asking if our great community members here heard anything about how to resolve it?

    You updated a computer that already had BBM installed?

    In case there's problems with the registry entries, have you tried uninstalling Blood Bowl and BBM, then reinstalling BB and finally reinstalling BBM?

    (You could try just reinstalling BBM first if you haven't already done so. ;)

    Ah, forgot to mention that the reinstall fixed the issues.
    Thanks for the link, Ghastley!

    Slight necro of this thread: There have been several reports over at the OCC about issues with BBM and Windows 10 since the new year. It appears that a particular Windows update is the culprit, namely KB 3132372. So, if you are using Windows 10 and you have problems with BBM, you might want to try uninstalling that particular Windows update.

    That will teach BBM how to exploit Windows security holes!!

    But seriously, great find. I was going to look for a fix tonight and bam! Thanks, Borke!
    (now you all know what OS I am running :rolleyes:)

    Cheers, can confirm that I had the same problem on Windows 10 and uninstalling KB 3132372 solved it. Hardly seems like a permanent solution, though...

    Yeah. If the BBM progammer still cared about the state of his program he could update it to work.

    As is I'll probably start phasing myself out of leagues using BBM. I can work around it by uploading from my old computer, but it is less bother to have to do it less often.

    Slightly off-topic: The BBM site seems to be down and I can't start the program anymore for that reason, does anyone have more information on that?

    The most likely explanation is that he (SuperJC) stopped paying for his site since he doesn't really play. He stopped paying for the database itself a while ago IIRC and it is kept elsewhere, but the program checks with his own site every time it starts up and that doesn't exist anymore.

    Or maybe something else. Dunno, really.

    Can anyone confirm this? I am about to kick off my league next Monday, and we rely heavily on BB Manager.

    Who is running the DB now, then?

    The NAS box running www.jcmag.fr is still online though, so the domain is not lost, that much I know.

    Can someone please direct me to some solid info or a quote from SuperJC, before I start pestering him? :)

    Mailing him to ask would seem to be the best way to get proper information, tbh.

    The OCC league assumes things should start working on Monday, because it'll be a new month and new dataplan by then. Fingers crossed, I suppose.

    Thanks, Nikolai. I have his address, but I'm guessing he gets enough mail as it is, what with the manual league references and all. I may go ahead and mail him if it's not up by sometime next week though.

    So, do you guys have an update? Or is there an alternative at least for the dice log analysis?

    BBM doesn't work for anyone right now. It has been down for a week or two and is likely dead.

    I have an update from SuperJC (mail):
    So the gist of it is:
    Write a nice mail to the hosting lady, and create a mailstorm.
    Hopefully she will get something done about it if enough people ask.
    Spread to your leagues!
