Multiplayer Schedule + How To Get Started in FS2 Multiplayer - Read this first!
If you want to get started using FS2NetD, you will need to read this. You only need to forward your ports to host, not to join games.

YOU CANNOT JOIN WHILE A GAME IS IN PROGRESS!

DO NOT PLAY WITH 3.6.8Z MEDIAVPS IF YOU WANT TO SAVE STATS!

If you are using a 3.6.10 build you need to be using either an XT build, one dated 6/17/08 or after or use this config file

3.6.10 also does not store stats if the 3.6.10 MediaVPs are used


If you are going to be hosting a game with a 3.6.10 build please post what build you are using.  Although the host and client don't need to be running the same build why chance it. 

When you are done, your settings should look something like this.

If you want to host first read this.

This will let you test your UDP port forwarding.

This tool Enables you to see which games are being played. Both files must be in the same folder!

If you have a low end PC, or just want to play with friends, this utility is useful for IP (direct link) games.
Network: FSOPEN
Password: galatea

You can see your rankings and what games are going on here.

You need the multiplayer mission pack to play or host. 

If you want to use a mod or conversion such as Inferno or BtRL notify me by PM.

I think it would easier if we just used the first post of the existing thread for this. I will update it. I wanted to merge the topics and put this post at the top, but it seems that it can only sort the posts according to their times.

Could you actually make this the topic, as I'm doing most of the organizing. (Although you and jr2 have helped a lot) I would like to be able to edit the calendar.

Fine. I suppose VC hasn't been in the other thread for a while now anyway, so I'll switch the discussion over to here. I brought it in line with what's in the other thread, but you'll need to maintain the schedule.

My game is starting a bit late, should be up now.

EDIT: When I try to "Join as observer" I get a debug error.

Indeed. At one point I actually had nine people in the game. :yes: I think we got some people outside of this forum too.

Not sure if I'll have time to play tomorrow, but I will be there for at least the Wednesday and Saturday games.

How many of you are available to play after 3:00 AM GMT, by the way? I find it more convenient to play/host after that point, but I'm thinking we'll end up getting less people than the 10:00 PM time (which also accomodates Europeans to some degree).

Flying a bomber on insanity-level is equal to signing your death sentence. :D

But overall, it was quite enjoyable, albeit flawed by several cases of "hacked files", so no stats could be saved. What brings me straight to the point: I fear i have no opportunity to get rid of that: I tried every solution i came across in the according topic, and even my logfile shows that the checksums of the tables are identical - everything should be fine, yet it isn't.

So i'd suggest you to add a hint to my game on sunday, that stats won't be saved for known reasons. Maybe i should make this into a pure newbie-game anyway - i felt a bit overwhelmed yesterday by the sheer difficulty level.

Made some changes to reflect what you said, among others.

By "logfile" did you also check tvalid.cfg?

It saves stats as long as you don't have hacked tables, so only you would be affected by that.

Did you use Turey's installer? If not, you probably have old media-vps.

This sounds interesting. Might drop by for tonight's game and give you another target to shoot at if I'm still up and about when people start logging on, which unless my calculations are off should be soon-ish :)

You can join us tonight if you're free. I will be starting at the same time I did on Monday. If we get that many people again, we can try some of the tougher missions and get their medals.

On a side note, everyone should get the multiplayer mission pack in here if you haven't already. This will speed things up for everyone and reduce the possibility of xfer disconnects.
