should the main server fail, use the tracker. that way we can keep games going even if the servers on the fritz.
I can no longer sit back and allow communist infiltration, communist indoctrination, communist subversion, and the international communist conspiracy to sap and impurify all of our precious bodily fluids.

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
I think we had four people at one point today but the server apparently couldn't handle that and was going crazy until one person left. Which is a pity, as I was looking forward to a CTF or Entropy 2v2 game. Maybe we can try having someone else host next time.

I'm a moron for asking this at this point, but which of you were Nick and Default? I never managed to guess while we were playing. :p

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
It seemed to be having this problem where some players suddenly couldn't move at all every now and then and were getting randomly disconnected until Default (whoever that was) was dropped for good. Although it was very smooth later on with only two players.

I'll try to get on somewhat earlier today; maybe I can catch some more of you on there.

Yeah, there is some major bugginess.

It seems to all stem from the countdown not beginning for some peole when the reactor blows.

Yeah, I was Nick.  It was some great action last night when we had 3 active players. Hope to get some more action later today.   :D

Oh, and if anyone has trouble with font being messed up ingame, I find that pressing F1 and escape fixes it.  If that fails, press F2 and change resolution.

Good call. It tends to crash every now and then, and I'm not always there to re-initialize, so a backup server is a good idea.

Ah, I see. :D I'll get on again tonight; should be fun.

It looks like there is a server option to disable the reactor altogether. It might be worth trying that and imposing a time limit on the game instead (15 or 20 minutes maybe), so everyone switches maps at the same time.

I'll try hosting a game tonight and will post the IP and port later.  I'm guessing I'll start up the game around 10 or 11pm (EST)

...hopefully I can figure out how to do it correctly; I'm completely new to this sort of stuff.  :sigh:

v1.5.122 up have a new built-in tracker provided by KoolBear from the DescentBB, so playing UDP via tracker is an option again. ;)

Ok, I am going to start up a udp/ip game now, hopefully I do it correctly...
IP is 192.168.0.101, port 28342.

If by 10pm Eastern Time nobody is able to join or find the game, please let me know here and maybe we can work it out.  Like I said I'm only guessing as to what to do.  :nervous:

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 mu
I guess it's a bit late now, but I couldn't find anything with that address or on the tracker. Anyone still up for a game?

Re: semi-sub-offitial hlp super happy descent 2 multiplayer action!
I'll try again right now.  I'll leave it going until 1:30am, at which point I'll give up if nobody comes.

Edit:  I do have a question about how to setup a udp/ip game:  I've set it for up to 8 players, and when I go to the screen where it says "select players" or something like that, and there are 8 boxes with me being X'ed in the first box.  It seems impossible to check any of the boxes, and if I just press enter it says something like "Warning: You must have at least 2 people for a netgame" and it starts the game with just myself.  Am I doing something wrong, or does this not matter and others will join when they come?

Whoohoo!  Got it to work!  :) :D :)   
We had another good night of playing, hopefully more are to come.

Oh yeah, I wish to thank the folks who set this up, Ulala for running the game so much so that others can enjoy playing it, and the others for playing so that I could finally get to play with real Descent fans.  Thank you! :)
