I didn't use my active worlds account since quite a while. Now I
downloaded 2.2 and renewed my membership. But none of the graphic files
succeed in downloading. Just the little pyramids everywhere. And the
download window shows that it is starting to download everything in
sight, lots of zip files zipping by, but apparently nothing succeeding.

I'm on a 192k/s DSL line and connectivity is no problem. But, like
probably most DSL connections, my machine is not going to have a reverse
IP. Would that be the problem? That the server rejects connections it
can't get a reverse mapping for?

Have you cleaned out your Activeworlds cache?&nbsp; If not, then go to
the activeworlds folder and delete the cache folder.
<p>Hope that helps.

If your ISP is using DHCP, then you do have an *assigned* IP. You may
want to check with your ISP. Now all object downloads are through HTTP
so if your web browser works, then you don't have a problem.

Might be a coincidence, but we had the same problem recently -- several
weeks ago graphics stopped downloading in all worlds visited.&nbsp; Nothing
else had happened to tie in with this on our end -- cache is routinely
cleaned and kept under control (we a long-time AW users), no corrupt objects
were present anywhere.&nbsp; And -- no amount of cache cleaning, world
deleting or other modifying the AW files solved it.
<p>In the end I had to uninstall AW and download a fresh copy of the browser
:(
