Despite the uncertain status of ZunTzu, I still find it to be a very desirable platform for creating electronic versions of games for local and solitaire play. While the ZT website has reappeared in…Continue

Connection problems with ZunTzu

I can't use ZunTzu for online gaming. If I try to be a HOST, it seems there is something wrong, and no one can connect with me. Also if I try to connect with other people, it's rejected as timeout…Continue

Gary Anderson.  I would like a copy of that folder so if you could post it up I would appreciate it.  I'd lilke to get a gaming buddy turned on to Zun Tzu,  but with the website down I am having trouble finding a way to get him the program.  BTW,  does anyone know when the website might be coming back up?  Hopefully it will feature an updated version of Zun Tzu that will allow FTF gaming online like it used to be able to do.

Excellent news Gary!! Glad it worked out for you!

Comment by Gary Anderson on January 12, 2020 at 10:55am

Woo-hoo! Success! I tinkered around with the files provided by Bill Ash and Greg Blanchett and finally found a combination that worked. Basically I dropped Bill's executable into the right place in Greg's Apps folder, and it sprang to life. Best of all, it doesn't call back to the site, so it is a stand-alone. It is not technically installed, but this Apps folder appears to be "portable" -- it will work no matter where the folder resides. So if I just keep a backup of this folder (and trust me, I have backed it up!) I should be okay for the future.

What a relief. Scanning, Photoshopping, and converting my game collection (especially my old out-of-print SPI titles) to ZunTzu mods has become my main pastime, and it was really disheartening to lose that. But thanks to you guys, it's back. Greatly appreciated!

I would be happy to zip up this folder and post it, if anyone wants it. Thanks again to all.

Thanks, Greg, for going to that trouble. Bottom line, unsuccessful but interesting. Your executable (ZunTzu.exe) weighed in at over a megabyte, whereas all the other ZunTzu apps I have tried up to now (including the one I have been using for years until it failed) are in the 4-5 kilobyte range. Yours is my first glimpse of the stand-alone version, which is now like a unicorn or the great white whale for me. Greg's executable did not call home, but it did refuse to run because it couldn't locate certain files. Understandable as it wasn't really installed on my system. It looks like my only hope is: either the ZunTzu website goes back online, or I can somehow find (and I have been looking!) the standalone installer and get ZunTzu properly installed on my system.

Found my exe file embedded in encoded folders under Apps/2.0/Data... in one folder is a library.xml with the following line inside...

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="Windows-1252" standalone="yes"?>

Obviously my Windows number is different than yours, but that might be where mine runs without the site.

ZunTzu.zip

This is my exe... don't know if it will work without all the other files, but thought I'd include it just in case.

Comment by Gary Anderson on January 11, 2020 at 3:59pm

Yeah, I think the main issue is the site being down. I was just unlucky enough to have a version of the app that does the call-home thing. Does anyone know someone affiliated with the site? I'm wondering if it's down for maintenance, or is it down for good (or bad, in my case)?

Internet Explorer & Edge say: "Hmmm...can't reach this page."

Chrome says: "www.zuntzu.com’s server IP address could not be found."

Comment by Greg Blanchett on January 11, 2020 at 3:01pm

Nope, same message Gary was getting "ZunTzu will be back online soon... "

Comment by Mike Charves on January 11, 2020 at 2:59pm
For those of you who have ZT actually working, if you go to http://www.zuntzu.com does the site come up for you? I'm wondering if maybe it's some kind of DNS issue.
Comment by Bill Ash on January 11, 2020 at 2:26pm

Gary,

Have you considered trying to revert your computer back to a previous state using system restore? Maybe not an option if you require your machine for other purposes, but might get ZT running again if you can go back to a point at which it worked.
