Title: How to set up PXO multiplayer
Post by: PIe on March 18, 2018, 07:58:51 pm
As you may or may not know, Taylor has ported PXO back to retail FS2 (https://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=93473.0).  If you want to get started playing and testing, here's instructions.
Note that it is retail-only, so don't expect the MediaVPs or any mods.  The good news is that you can play on pretty much any computer.
Have fun!

If you plan on playing often, ask MageKing17 to add you to the multi group so that you too can be notified when someone wants to play.
And if I'm not awake, any moderator can grant people roles.

Which launcher do I need to enter the credentials into? Is it the wxLauncher 0.12.0-rc3 or the FS2 Open Launcher 5.5d? Or something else?

The retail launcher, because this here is only based upon retail FS2.

Just use the included launcher (I forget if it's fs2.exe or freespace.exe).

That I have to use the included launcher is what had to be mentioned. Thanks.

Getting multiplayer mode work for FreeSpace 2 ist far to difficult.
