Post subject:  TWX Proxy crashes every 15 minutes under Windows 10

I was watching "Halt and Catch Fire" and got inspired to see if anyone still played TW2002 and I was amazed they still do.

Downloaded TWX Proxy 2.03 and got it running after dusting off my brain cells.

But it crashes on me every 15 minutes or so.

So then I tried TWX 2.04, and then 2.11, still same result.

I've played around with the compatibility settings, but it doesn't make any difference, I've tried everything from Win 95 onwards.

Here is the picture of the error popup box: https://imgur.com/5YLIgBc

I'm running Win 10 on a Lenovo Y520 laptop with SyncTerm.

Anyone know anything I could do to fix this?

Thanks in advance

Hey there JimTheSoundman! I'm glad you were inspired, and welcome to the small remnant of TW players.

Here is the last release of TWX that I released (v2.05.73), which definitely addressed that bug: http://classictw.com/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=34737

You can also look for Micro's 2.06.xx version which should also have the fix for that error.

You mentioned version 2.11, but that branch was not maintained, so I suggest ignoring it.

Let me know your results,
+EP+

I've downloaded v2.05.73 and it appears to be working flawlessly, so thanks for that.

Now can anyone point me to a resource for writing a login script? I've tried doing it on my own, but it always says it can't compile it. Thanks in advance.
