****. I feel like an idiot. I've lost my FS2NetD password. Is there no way I can get it back?

Well... im not sure, and this is probably not it, but i donĀ“t remember having a game-warden account, and used my fs2netd account at it and it worked... might that help you get your password back? i have no idea, but who knows? right? :rolleyes:

Re: Multiplayer Schedule + How To Get Started in FS2 Multiplayer - Read this first!
I would like a little help, if you don't mind.  :)

Having got a broadband connection, I decided to try FSO multiplayer. I followed the instructions on the first post's link to Game Warden, and when I get to the lobby, it looks like this all the time:

EVERY TIME I get the same four channels! Even when I moved the fs2open_pxo.cfg out of the way, I still get the same four. I am using fs2_open_3_6_10r-20081210_r4989.exe with the 3.6.10 MediaVPs. Is this proper behaviour, or have I done something wrong? Argh, I just read the first post again, is it because I am using fs2_open_3_6_10r-20081210_r4989.exe? Which build do you suggest?

Thanks.

That's what you are supposed to be seeing.

Okay, I was just wondering if I was supposed to see the same four channels every time. Thanks.

EDIT: So, for example, if I wanted to join the Saturday night game (Sunday morning here), it would be on one of those channels? (Eleh, Lenele, Wolong or Masad?) Or would a different channel show up?

Unfortunately I'll be too busy.  Xmas decorating contest is being judged Sunday and I'm the raining champ.  Still got a ton of stuff to do.  After Sunday I'll be back playing for a few months.  No schedule for taking them down.   Just needs to be done before spring.   Although if there's a 60 degree day in January I'll skip FS2 to go outside.

at the bottom of the page there is a box marked games , click it there you will be presented with a server list , normally there are 2 freestanding servers ( fubars bar and grill and another for lmediavps , if you see something else there and it says forming in the server line , click it and click join , if  the game is in progress , try joining anyway , we are a polite bunch and will come and get you as such ,





as for the game tonight i should be there ,  if my hangover doesnt get any worse or i try to refeed it that is

So when I got to the screen I would click the Games button (in the very bottom-right corner), disregarding the thing at the top (with Eleh and all that), and I'll get a list of the games that you guys have on?

I don't wish to be a pain here, I just like to be sure on things. I look forward to playing if I'm not too late (I go on after 9 AM at my time which is +10 GMT IIRC).

I wanted to play again 2nite, but for my continuing problems with obtaining Freespace2 retail.

I will keep trying to obtain a copy (GoG wont accept my or my wife's credit card and my 1999 FS2 retail box is 400 miles away in storage). I hope the open community nature of FSO remains in time to come. It is a very unique idea - in the crush of commercialism that is the games market.

Amen - I will stop preaching now

We need to find a way to make new people play in multiplayer... we are too few for it.

I gotta d-load SCP again.

I only kept my data files, everything else deleted.

Took up space and wasn't playing at the time.

I was most active from April to July...then people stopped playing-ish.

So i lost interest.

Now I feel like coming back.

XD

After harassing my router for an hour and reading the instructions I am now multiplayer compatible. Wheee...

I await a session.

Question: Should I bother to haul out my dusty old PC mic or is keyboard communication possible

I'm pretty certain that mic communication isn't available at the moment (correct me if I'm wrong), but during ingame, press 1 to type your message and press ENTER for your message to be seen by everyone.
