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

ZunTzu.zip

Long shot, but here's my link that works from my desktop...

In the past hour I did a system update and a thorough virus/malware check. It was a longshot. It didn't solve the problem, but at least I can rule that out. I also tried turning the internet off and running the app, and there was no difference whatsoever -- the app still tries, unsuccessfully, to call home.

I have been using ZunTzu for I think around six years, and in that time I am sure I have reinstalled it at least a two or three of times. I always got the installer directly from the zuntzu.com site, and I never had a stand-alone version (zuntzu.exe) show itself. Mine has always been the "call-home" version. I have many hundreds of hours invested in this thing, and I have converted a couple of hundred games -- mostly old SPI titles -- for my own amusement. I will really hate to lose all that.

Windows 7 Pro 64 here... and like I said, it still works for me.

That is odd Greg. Maybe it has to do with windows versions? I am running Windows 10 Home 64bit on my PC, Microsoft Surface Go, and a generic 8" tablet. Works fine on all three.

I don't even have an exe file... just a ClickOnce Application Reference (.appref-ms) which brings up version 1.2 of ZunTzu... maybe later versions have this problem.

Mine isn't under Apps... there's a folder ZunTzu_Software from Sept 2013 which has my user.config

Strange...

My executable is "ZunTzu.exe". At a loss here. Like I said below, I use ZT on a Windows tablet not connected to the internet, so how could it possibly work if it must call back to the website? Weird. As an experiment, can you try disconnecting from the net and see if it will load? 

Here is a zip of my "Apps" folder from AppData\Local\Apps from a different hard drive. In this case ZunTzu was the only app installed, so I assume everything in the .zip folder is associated with ZT in someway or other. I had deleted the ICSharpCode stuff from the first .zip thinking it was unrelated:

Apps.zip

Oh. Going back to the tablet I keep offline, I ran that setup file below on said tablet while not connecting to the 'net, and it installed and ran perfectly.

Thank you kindly, sir, for the effort. But no joy. I backed up my apps folder, then copied your contents into it. But my executable (named "ZunTzu.application" -- is that what your executble is called?) still attempts to go to the website: "Downloading http://www.zuntzu.com/download/ZunTzu.application did not succeed." Your apps folder was very similar to the one on my system, structurally. I didn't see any major differences.

Gary,

Here is a copy of my ZunTzu install.....I think. All of this was found in C:\Your Name\AppData\Local\Apps\2.0. I am no authority on the inner workings of Windows, so urge CAUTION here. Be careful not to overwrite any files in the same folder which may be particular to your machine. I deleted some stuff from the .zip which I knew for sure was related to other programs. I left some things that may have a relationship to ZunTzu. Again, I am no wiz at these files found in AppData. At the least, take a look and compare our two installs to see if anything jumps out at you. Good luck and be careful.

Bill

Thanks for the link, Hernan, but this installer does a callback to the site -- which is down. Run the installer and you get this: "An error occurred trying to download 'http://www.zuntzu.com/download/ZunTzu.application'." I would love to find the "stand-alone" version of the app, but in all my years with ZunTzu I have only ever seen this "callback" version.

I'm starting to think that the "ZunTzu will be back online soon..." message really means "Thanks and goodbye." Would love to hear otherwise.
