Re: Can't Sign In - copy of Myth is too old

I think it was a minor bug fix, not sure. I typically like to bump version numbers regardless but in this case I believe the other folks felt that it was minor so a build number change was enough. But yeah, just redownload the latest and apply and it should work.

Re: Game recordings not posting

This should now be fixed - replays should again be available for download from the web site soon after a game is played, including games played while the downloads weren't work.

Did the problem happen after making router config changes to allow you to host? If so, have you tried reverting them to see if that fixes it as an additional data point?
