Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I can't see your game. You might have not forwarded the port correctly.

In any case, I guess if it's just the two of us, we might as well wait for tomorrow or something. It's much more fun when you have at least four people.

[22:29] <sigtau> Hello, #hard-light?  I'm trying to tell a girl she looks really good for someone who doesn't exercise.  How do I word that non-offensively?

I can't see your game. Although the multi.log says something different.

Yeah. That means that somewhere between you requesting an active game packet and the server sending you one someone's firewall/NAT is blocking the response.

The problem is figuring out which one.

I'm going to be out for a while. I can probably play later today, maybe in three hours or so.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
karajorma, if you can put together a readme / walkthrough / whatever, just enough so that I can understand about your "other" version of port forwarding, I'll put in in the wiki... hopefully sometime this week.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Well that's the problem, although my method of doing things is better than PortForward's it's certainly not easier. PF's method is basically the same for every version of Windows, mine is different for every single router.

I don't particularly fancy writing up an explanation on how to do a reservation on every single router in existence. :D It's a pity they didn't though since they already have guides tailored to each router this would have just been one more.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Blast, if i had known earlier, i'd have dropped in two days ago. Please, continue to organize such multiplayer-battles - i'd really like to give it a try. I'm in the european time zone (GMT+1), but since i happen to have semester break right now, i'm relatively flexible in my time scheduling.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
At this point, we're looking to play at 10:00 PM GMT today, which is a little over three hours from now. So let's get some people coming.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I have updated VC's original post to reflect our plans so far.

[edit] On further consideration, it might be easier to switch the multiplayer discussion over to this thread due to the first post, as the merge function here doesn't work very well. I'm going to lock this thread for now. Discussion on this topic should continue in the other thread instead.
