MXit – “PC edition”- MPowerPlayer fix

MPowerPlayer information here -> mxit.defza.com/faqs/emulators-mpowerplayer.

UPDATE:

It has been fixed already!

I contacted MPowerPlayer, and it got fixed 🙂
So, everything back to normal, people 🙂
No changes needed. Just File->Exit and relaunch the player and it should update to the newest version.

Thanks so much — with that I was able to duplicate and fix the problem

Please update to the latest (1199) and you should be all set.

Thanks again,
– Michael

Recently a bug crept into MPowerPlayer…

The problem is with the current version of MPowerplayer – if you say “Always” when it trys to connect with MXit, it can’t connect, MXit will say: “Re-connecting” and then Login / Registration failed: You could not be logged onto the MXit service. Please ensure that your GPRS service is set up and available.

So,
“This application is attempting to access the network. Do you want to allow this application to access the network.”

You must say “yes” everytime…

If you’ve already said “always”, well, I came up with a fix 😀

Well, if you want to know how to logout or use MPowerPlayer on one computer for different MXit users then…
Click here for more info!

At least this bug was good for something: It made me write up how to login with multiple accounts on MXit with MPowerPlayer!

Something I learnt recently: The noisiest wheel gets the most attention.

    help me rietrive it my num is 076*EDIT*

    The ONLY way to retrieve your password for MXit (even on PC) is to send an SMS/TXT from South Africa to 34006 with the word PIN in it.
    The SMS/TXT must come from the number that you want the password for!

    I’ve done EVERYTHING but v5 still doesnt wanna run on my pc!!!!! I’ve saved ALL the files and stuff but every time i wanna use it, it tells me “launch file error”!!!! what should i do to fix this?

    def says:
    Sorry to hear!

    OK, click here -> webstart.mpowerplayer.com
    It should open up the MPowerPlayer program. Does it work?

    Then, click File->Open, and open the MXit V3 .jar, or the MXit v5 .jad from http://www.mxit.co.za/wap

    Hay! Opera Mini doesn’t work on mpowerplayer for some reason, but Opera have their own Opera Mini emulator / simulator that you can use online in your webbrowser. (it’s a java app)

    Hey, I was running mxit on my pc once upon a merry time without hassles. When i initially started mxit on my pc, i clicked always when it prompted about the connection so it tries to connect and log straight in everytime. Now, a little while ago, I changed my pin number from my phone, and now when I try to log onto mxit from my pc, I get the incorrect pin error. I obviously need to put in my new pin, but I don’t know how. I don’t get any such option. How can i rectify this?

    please help me ..iv done everything like uninstalled java n mpwer bt stil my mxit dnt wana work..i select mxit frm the mpwer player app bt all it says is connecting and reconnecting…it doesnt want to alow me in…the other games like bluepulse works bt just mxit doesnt…i installed it on another pc n registered agen then it worked plz help me sort it out on my pc
    ———————–
    Strange.. when it says reconnecting it usually means that it can’t connect to the internet/mxit.
    If it’s at a company or work place, they might have closed the MXit port 9119. That’s why bluepulse works because it’s on another port.

    It’s your login number (usually your cell number) – you can find it in Settings->Profile in MXit!
