Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I have a 10 mb+ down connection. Will you need to do port forwarding in 3.6.10, because I am not entirely sure that I can do this with my SpeedStream 6520 Aliant Telecom modem.

You will have to forward the ports (to host, not connect) if you use a firewall and/or router, it's universal for all games.

BloodEagle, do you have your port forwarded?  I forgot which one, I'm not at my home computer, but it's a UDP port.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
My internet connection has been acting a bit flaky with certain sites ever since my router took a power surge a few days ago (still mostly works, but some output ports are dead). I might run into trouble hosting this time, but then again it may work fine. I should have a replacement next week.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
:D You could always run a direct connection to your cable/DSL modem.  Oh, and invenst in a $30 Surge protector for your computer & router etc... they are well worth it.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I have it on a UPS with surge protection. The problem is that the modem is on the other side of the room, and even though it has its own surge protector, the cable line itself is not protected. The UPS has connections for the coaxial cable but the cable doesn't reach that far. There was a heavy storm here a few nights ago and the router has been acting up ever since, so a surge is the most likely explanation.

Hrm... why not move the modem?  Just get a joiner & a coax extension.

The cable wouldn't reach it and I was too lazy to go out and buy an extender when I was setting it up. :nervous:

I have the correct port (7808) forwarded for both the UDP and TCP protocols.

Also, according to my router, I receive downstream speeds of 3552 kilobits (3.4 megabits) per second.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
So, are we going to use 3.6.9 official or the BtRL version?

I don't have BtRL, but if you guys want me to use it, I'll download it.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I don't have it either at the moment. Is there a link to the exe only?

If a lot of you are going to play I recommend using the BtRL executable instead of 3.6.9 Official.  That way the host can use -cap_object_update 0 instead of having to scream at everyone else to pick low object updates.

There's your answer.

It's not a "multiplayer battle-night" if only 2 people are on.  :hopping:
