- I had to shut down my server for good, so now the multiplayer feature is only available when my desktop is online (~10 hours a day). See my website for more info.
- Connection problems: The game connects through TCP port 10997 and 10998, you NEED to have these ports forwarded for it to work. Read more about port forwarding on portforward.com.
- LAG, only TCP connection is available in Ff/Moz so I can't guarantee high speeds. I have tried a lot to make it less anoying, but I can't fix LAG itself.
- On first startup you will be asked if you want to add a PONG! toolbar button to your navigation. You can always do this manualy in the View/Toolbars/Customize menu later.
- Strange things can happen if your Ff/Moz profile is corrupted, or an installation went wrong. Please always try to reinstall the extension first, or install it on a clean Ff profile. Read more here: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Profile
- Some themes make certain items invisible. Try customizing the PONG! color scheme so it will work on your theme. Otherwise just use Ff default theme.
- Other problems, just mail me, please! I can't do anything if you just post a 0 star rating, with the text "It does not work!". Mail me, and I'll most likely get it fixed soon.
