I have several but many have completely different firmwares, whether they're Linux based, VxWorks, etc.  Mine are a bit older.  Maybe post a screenshot of your particular port forwarding screen?

Re: 3.6.12 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
So you filled out the sixth and seventh rows something like:

Freespace (1) | 7117 | 7117 | Both | 192.168.1.<your computer's IP> | X
Freespace (2) | 7808 | 7808 | Both | 192.168.1.<your computer's IP> | X

Then hit Save Settings, and it didn't change anything?

Dunno if it would help, but there is an updated firmware it seems, 2.0.03.  I wouldn't do that unless you're desperate though, don't want to brick your router.

Oh hey that worked. See, I didn't know what exactly to enter in those fields. Thanks dude! Pretty sure I can host now.

Re: 3.6.12 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
Hello. I got Freespace 2 some months ago and got the whole shabang (FSO installer, wxlauncher and even compiled my own fs2_open build since I use Linux Mint Debian). So I can't wait to play some matches online.

I have some question though.

1. I have the multiplayer voice pack and validated missions in a mod folder called "multimissions". Do I put the content of the official Volition patch into that folder?
2. (linux build related): how can I make my online account data persisent in the game? I have to enter my name and pw everytime I wanna join the servers.
3. Do I get stats, also when I play with the media vps enabled?

Thanks in advance.

Multi missions and voice pack are the exception to the "don't put GPS in the root folder" rule.  Those and the volition patch should all be in your Freespace 2 folder.

Please file a mantis bug for the pxo account info issue, I saw it happening on OSX but thought it was just me until now.

How do I file a Mantis bug and what does the format look like?

Head to the Mantis page here; you'll have to register an account, which should be (theoretically) simple enough.  Once you're set there, you'll be able to file a bug report, which has a bunch of different information categories you can fill in.  Just give as much detail as you're able; you shouldn't need a whole lot to start off for this one, since it's a basic "this info isn't saving" issue.

 
Re: 3.6.12 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
Will do. Thanks Mongoose. :-)

Re: 3.6.12 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
Ok, I've commented on #2750.  After a little more testing on my end, I realized it's wxLauncher eating the info saved to the fs2_open.ini file, not FS2_Open itself.  So we'll be closing the Mantis bug and opening a bug on wxL's bug tracker.  Thanks for reporting it though, I needed to be sure my OS X problem was the same as what you were describing, and I didn't have time to follow up on the problem until today anyway :)

@Chief: Yes. I've read your reply and tested your workaround on my end and it worked. So it really is a wxlauncher bug.

Siechtum, I posted in the Mantis ticket about a patch I made that's in the wxLauncher bug report about this bug. Could you test the patch?

You'll need to check out wxLauncher from trunk if you haven't already. The readme has the instructions on how to do it. The LMDE/Debian repos probably have a Mercurial client you can use.

You can then apply the patch by moving it to your wxLauncher folder and running this command:

Code: [Select]
hg patch --no-commit fix_fs2openini_updating.patch

Once you've tested it, could you post your results in the wxLauncher bug report if you have a Google account, or here if you don't have a Google account?

Thanks.

I downloaded the latest source for wxlauncher and compiled it again. The bug is gone for me. :-)

I hope there's a couple around, they'll be excited about my current side project maybe ;)

I'm still around, Gladi is probably the only other SW vet that flies, though BD has set his system up so he can fly too now I think... ;x

Hi, I'm new to FS2 and just got the game from GOG.

I want to play online and followed the instructions correctly I think, in PXO there is only 1 channel called Eleh. Does that sound like I've done everything right?

When are people online?

Thanks  :)

 
Re: 3.6.18 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
If you got on to the lobby you're most of the way there, final check would probably be to make sure you're using both the right version of the EXE (either the most current nightly, or the most current stable release, realistically) and that you definitely have port 7808 open if you want to host or host on stand alones servers (meaning; joining a server with 0 players to 'start' a game).

Playing times are a tiny bit random, you may find games in the week, you may not. You will most probably find games on the EU evening-early morning time period, and most especially on fridays and saturdays.
I've been ridiculously busy with real life(tm) the last couple months so I haven't been around enough to even know the true answer to that question right now, but multi is at the quietest it's been since I returned to these forums (4 years?), hoping there will be new life at some point, you may be able to muster people up to play with via a forum thread or on #hard-light on irc. There are people out there who want to play at least semi-regularly, trust me.

Re: 3.6.18 Multiplayer Setup, Schedule, and other Info V0.9 CURRENT AS OF Aug 19TH
I'm still getting used to hard-light myself, and I'd be interested in multiplayer as well. IRL I'm working on my Computer Engineering degree so I'll be on and off during the week possibly. When Summer hits I'll try to get on all the time :)
