There are ways this could happen under expected conditions. If the client sends a keep alive just after receiving the timeout message, the tineout will reset, then when it reaches 60 seconds again, it'll repeat the message. I can reproduce this output easily. Is there any chance that your client is resetting the timeout when it gets to between 60 and 30 seconds remaining?

No Bot, or trigger running. My client has never 'helped' me out in the past.. I mean, if it's helping me stay connected all of a sudden, I think my computer has a very sick sense of humour. :lol:

Ok, so the next question I have is, how long did it go between displaying the timeout message? And do you know how long the inactivity timeout was set to? It would be shown on the General Info block of the * output from the startup menu.

Are you sure it's not your client, LoneStar? SWATH has keepalives on by default. In fact, I don't know how to turn them off.

The only keepalive in Swath that I know of is if you have the Auto-Helper turned on. Unclick the light bulb and it will turn the helper mode off.

Just use "telnet runawayproton.dyndns.org 223" select a game and wait at the "Enter you choice:" prompt.

I've noticed that entering that prompt without doing anything will kick me back into the Games Menu --as expected. However. If you look at highscores, or perhaps the Game Settings, this phenomenon will occur only a few times. If, you enter a game (and in my case leave game from the Citadel), and wait at the "Enter you choice:" prompt, it will give the inactivity warning several times.

I did exactly as described, Logged in to server, picked a game letter check high score and sat there. After 3 minutes I get the 1 minute warning, then 30 seconds... 10 seconds and dropped to main menu.

Looks like RP took all the games down.

I was in the Spaceball Edit, if that makes any difference. I repeated the 'glitch' several times. Maybe the server like me more than you, who knows
