There are two computers in the room I'm in. On one of them, when I open the game, go to BBS levels, and press update, BBS levels appear. On the other computer, they don't. What do I do?

I think one of your computers is connected to the internet and the other isn't. The BBS levels require a bit of internet to show up properly.

That would be my guess. Do the computers it doesn't work on have working internet connections otherwise?

Yes, the computer it doesn't work on does have a working internet connection. On that computer, I can even open up the levels in my browser, but I can't open levels up ingame.

The only other thing I can suggest is that some firewall or other antivirus program is preventing Voxatron from accessing the levels on that computer. Can you either disable or make an exception for Voxatron on your firewall (assuming if you have one), otherwise I don't know what to tell you.

Windows Firewall doesn't even list Voxatron, but I think I know what's wrong. In the index.txt file in the bbs_levels folder, there is a part that says "<title>Website Blocked!</title>". Now, this wouldn't make sense if it wasn't for the fact that a program called Net Nanny is installed on my computer. It looks for sites that have inappropriate things on them and blocks them. So, I think that somehow, Net Nanny is interfering with Voxatron when it tries to pull up levels from the BBS. This is the index.txt file if you want to look at it.

U seem like a technical reparing system guy or something. Thats pretty neat.
