mybuzzquiz.com not working

46 Replies 5,846 Views Created 12-11-2012

Hi

 

I just realized that mybuzzquiz.com is not working properly. When i go to the site it forces me to select language and after that redirects directly to buzzthegame.com. Using link to mybuzz redirects me to the same place again.

 

I checked trophy rankings and last trophy for 'Amateur Quiz Writer' was unlocked on 6th Nov 2012 so it was probably available week ago.

Anyone knows if the site is under maintenance? (I hope it's not gone for good)

Ok, here's the most detailed guide i could come up with ;)

Have fun!

 

1) Check if www.mybuzzquiz.com site really not works (maybe they somehow fixed it and you can use it?). If it works just use that one and omit the rest of the guide ;)
2) If it still do not work properly check the following link: http://buzzps3.svo.online.scee.com:10060 If it works there is still hope so proceed to point 3.
3) Go to 'my computer' and open following folder path: C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\
4) In etc folder you should have file named 'hosts'. It don't have any extension but open it with notepad (or any other txt file editor). Add this entry at the end of the file:

217.18.28.57 www.mybuzzquiz.com

and save it. If you're wondering what you just did than in short this says to your apps that 'mybuzzquiz.com' is on that server (which in fact isn't - it's ip of the mentioned site). It has to be done to properly use all redirects from the site
5) Type www.mybuzzquiz.com:10060 to your browser - the site should open
6) Try to log in - it will open typical sony login window. Type your creditentials and push 'sign in'
7) After short while you will get error with message about failed connection. It's partially true as it reidirected you to wrong port but in fact you just got logged in :) Note that site url should end with
something like this:

actions/PSNLogin.do?sessionId=SOME_WEIRD_LOOKING_CHARCTERS

8) Copy the end of the url and create url looking like this http://www.mybuzzquiz.com:10060/actions/PSNLogin.do?sessionId=SOME_WEIRD_LOOKING_CHARACTERS
(just remove 's' from https prefix and add :10060 after site name). Paste it into browser and enter. You'll get another message saying that connection failed :)
9) Now type http://www.mybuzzquiz.com:10060 and go there. You should see mybuzzquiz page again but this time you're logged in (note your name on the top of the page)
10) Download Burp Suite Free edition from http://portswigger.net/burp/download.html
11) Edit your browser connections settings and add proxy there. As proxy address type 127.0.0.1, as port number 8080. If you have any proxy already there than you're kind of screwed. You should
probably search for some proxy that allows another proxy in chain. I couldn't find this option in burp so I won't help you.
12) Run Burp suite (you have to install Java if you don't have it).
13) Select Tab named 'Proxy' and then 'Options' from the tabs below. There should be one proxy listener running on 127.0.0.1 (port 8080). Select it and push edit.
14) Go to 'Request handling tab' and put 10060 to 'redirect to port' field. Push 'Ok'.
15) Go to 'Intercept' tab and set change 'Intercept is on' to 'Intercept is off'
16) Now (finally) on (still) opened buzz site click 'Create Quiz'. It will give you well known flash app where you can create your quiz :).
17) Do as many quizzes as you want and save them.
18) After job is done do some cleanup on your system -> remove proxy on browser, remove added entry in hosts file.

Done.

Have checked this web address as it was not working for us either and this is the message I had when checking if the site was up using Is It Up and clicking on the IP number for mybuzzquiz.com:

 

Under Construction

The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured.

Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.

9) Now type http://www.mybuzzquiz.com:10060 and go there. You should see mybuzzquiz page again but this time you're logged in (note your name on the top of the page)

 

 

Thank you for all this help, it's appreciated that you are trying to keep Buzz alive!

 

I can do the steps up to 8, then at 9 it doesn't log in or show any screen, I just get: "Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to www.mybuzzquiz.com:10060"

 

I have tried with Internet Explorer, but that cannot even get past the first steps...

I tried and I can connect but I keep getting error on this page (instead of getting mybuzz interface).

I tried playing mybuzzquizes from game itself and it doesn't work either (throwing server errors).

You can try again in few days but so far this doesn't look good...

Thanx Zbir_Vladimir for your detailed instructions.

I'm able to create new quizzes but it gives me an error when trying to play an old one...

 

Do you think there is still a chance to get the Master Quiz Writer trophy?

Can someone let me know if you're able to play my buzz quizzes from game itself?

It doesn't work for me now. I'm also not able to add new quizzes using my method, I keep getting error after logging in.

 

I platinumed all buzzes so it's not urgent for me but I'm just wondering if it's something on my side or they just completely turned that off.

Hi, it seems like you guys have problem creating the quizzes, but are you experiencing issues with loading and playing them? I kept getting the message "Error Downloading" and "General Server Error" when I tried to load my quiz via PS3.

they are stabbing the servers with spears in the hope to kill them as we speak now. cant have this buzz crap running anymore... people dont play it and having to host all these insane hugh text files, that take 20mb total of disk space. it is just to much cost for them at the moment. they now only have the site up and running, to lure suckers to buy these 60 dollars buzzers. they havent sold all of them yet.

 

with the site up and running as an advertizer for the unsold buzzers. they now hope people dont notice the none function quiz maker. if people ask question about the broken quiz making (broken by a web admin that tried updated the servers while drunk), they just keep shut and hope you go away.

 

so if your a late adopter or still love playing the buzz game. you will now not beable to play the game as it was ment to be.... but hey as long they got their money its all good.

I just checked and I can create quizzes again.

As for playing I wasn't able to do that 2 weeks ago when I checked last time (got the same message about server error). The only quizzes working for me were those created by me.

I was about to do a quiz for Xmas for the kids to play and now I can't. (Not going to install a proxy server just for this!)

 

What is the problem? The quizes are still accessable in Buzz!

 

I would have thought that T&C's about resonable actions, and being informed about changes come into play here?

 

Anyone out there at Relentless or Sony willing to comment?

 

Alistair.

@alucardrm

Review your proxy settings, it's set up in order to avoid 'undefined' showing up, you probably have something wrong in your configuration

 

@Alistair12

I completly agree with you, that's why I created this thread...

The problem is that site is not working for more than a month and noone probably cares. I posted this topic on two forums (this and Polish one) nearly month ago and still got no valuable reply at all.

I'm glad that at least I was able to find some workaround to use the site.

Maybe there are more important things going on in SCEE as it is the run up to Xmas.

 

Fingers crossed.
