I meant wait until this whole "Battle-night" thing gets noticed, not just your game!  :p

Have you actually tried playing with it set to dial-up? The connection I'm on right now isn't dial-up, but it needs to be set to it to work.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Thanks, but I seem to have figured it out, had to load the launcher and change the settings from there from dial up to cable.

Booted up, and now I'm in the lobby.. all alone.

Oh well, I belive I needed to download mutliplayer missions anyways.

Did you set your firewall/AV to allow traffic on port 7808?

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
That went pretty well. It was good to play this again after so many years. :yes:

I don't understand why the official Volition missions aren't validated though. That makes no sense at all and seems like a rather serious problem.

I dont belive zonealarm basic allows me to specify ports to open, but I have set freespace 2 to have open access to whatever ports it may need, hope that does the trick.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
That's unlikely to work, but it's certainly worth a try. If it doesn't and you're on XP, then I'd suggest turning off ZoneAlarm in favour of the XP firewall when you feel like playing multi, as that at least does allow specific ports to be opened.

I actually switched from ZA to Sunbelt Kerio for this very reason.

Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Well that was cool.  :cool:

Sorry to 'ultima21', whoever that was, during that co-op mission. You had more shivans on you then flies on cow crap!

 
Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
Theres a game going on?

Doh, been messing around with Wing commander and Btrl demo's.

(Which btw are mind blowing)

Hmmm, lemme fire up FS2 and see if anyone is there. (Assuming my firewall is acting like it should)

 
Re: Multiplayer battle-nights!
I assumed I had added port 7808 to windows firewall but when I loaded up FS2 there were no games listed, tried again with no firewall (zone alarm and windows firewall off) and still no games showing.

So either no one is on (1027pm est) or one of my settings is still off.

Doh

@Pathwarden:
Opening the ports is mainly for hosting. By the way, are you using a router? If so, you need to enter your router's (home) IP address into a web browser. The IP by default is usually 192.168.1.1
