Hi guys, not sure if this is the right thread..but hey im new here please be nice :)
i signed up for FICS today and well, the java app on the site wasnt working, so i downloaded a client (babaschess) and it when pressing connect it would just keep saying connecting, but never would connect

is the server down or does the internet just hate me? :wall:

try

F11

server

configuration .... <default>

tick remember username and password

click advanced

make sure server is fics not the blitz chess club

you can tick alternate port 23 if port 5000 is not working for you

try the 3 timeseal options external integrated or none

try all that and see
