One more update: I just did a new installation (basic stuff only) via Turey's installer, purely for MP-purposes, and it fixed the "hacked tables"-problem. The according hint can be deleted then. :P

I'm going to be running about 10 minutes late, but will start up a game shortly.

[edit] okay, the game will be up momentarily.

We only got three or four people this time, but still had some good games. If anyone is interested, I can host a game on the 25th at the same time (in addition to BloodEagle's game later on) to make up for it. We should get a lot more people on a weekend. I'm actually rather surprised that we got so many on Monday.

Was good fun even with 3-4 players, and I'll certainly be trying to find time for more of these in the future :)

We should have a nice crowd on Saturday, which has been our main game day for the last few weeks. I'll be there at both of the sessions.

To anyone who hosts, make sure you create a new game after every mission. If you don't, two nasty bugs can occur.

All in all it's going great, but we still only have 4 servers. I think the main problem is the portforwarding one, but no one knows that there is a fix.

Yeah, generally it's fixable. Only people who are victims of NAT or in a DMZ should be entirely unable to host. For everyone else who might want to host I'll gladly try to walk them through their firewall problems over IRC.

As for lack of servers, I might be able to host as well (on a Euro-friendly timeslot, like 8-9pm GMT), I just need to take stock of my post-summer work hours first so I can be sure which days I'll be up to it. Will post in the other thread once I get that ironed out. I can say one thing already though - It won't be on fridays :p It's not even 5pm yet and I already feel like crashing in my bed and sleeping for 16 hours straight.

Hi :) . I'll possibly try to join tomorrow morning - if I'm not sleeping that is.
As for timezone, I'm GMT +1, I think (Germany).

Hosting isn't that good on my side, as my PC's rather old and also somewhat unstable currently (so please don't wonder should I suddenly drop out... and eventually even not be able to join again :sigh: ).

Still - nice to see this coordination :) . Already tried playing FSNetD, but usually didn't find too many games... Oh, and stat saving likely won't work for me either way - no idea why :nervous: .

Rogue tables (even ones such as the stars.tbl for lightspeed's nebulae) and/or incompatible mediavps. Safe thing to do is grab the mission vps from the sticky, make a seperate mod directory with just those, and use that as a mod when playing online. That way, all factors other than the data directory are taken out of the equation.

Plus, one or two of the mediavp models are suspected of problems that affect balance (and not in your favour), so it takes care of that issue too.

Hmm.  (Sorry I haven't gotten back to you, cole...)  This week has been rather bad for free time, but I have the weekend off.  So, prolly on Saturday, (EST or GMT -5) I'll be available around 8PM on... but you already have a host for that time slot, so I guess I'll play... :drevil: unless there are too many players; then I could host as well.  ;)  Anyways, I'll check back tomorrow (Saturday).

Cole is going to be away for a few days, so I'll be updating the schedule in the meantime. We will probably be sticking with weekends for now anyway.

Also, I will be moving on September 8 and have no idea what the internet connection there will be like, so I don't know how well I can host after then. I will still be able to use my current connection every now and then (whenever I'm at my parents' house).

One more update: I just did a new installation (basic stuff only) via Turey's installer, purely for MP-purposes, and it fixed the "hacked tables"-problem. The according hint can be deleted then. :P

Okay, done.

Fixed. I tend to mess up on that myself. :p

Just a heads-up, we'll be starting in about 15 minutes.

[edit] Starting now.

That was really fun :) And CP, that mission of yours is crazy. First time I've run out of respawns, though half of those were due to the AI camping the respawn point :p

Something freaky just happened. My computer crashed, for some strange reason. I started it back up and tried to join the game again as observer. FreeSpace crashed on me and it says "FreeSpace has encountered an error and must close blablabla." Then I tried again, and then it said "cannot join because another person is trying to join the game at this time. Try again later". Then, after a while, it said "Join request rejected because identical player is already playing." For the rest of the Sirius blockade mission, it did that for me. Then, after the game had ended and I turned off my Laptop, it said "Online Users: Snail"... :wtf:

And yet we nearly had it. Just gotta be a bit faster at taking out the main turrets on the heavier warships and we keep the corvette alive. 5% more health when the final destroyer jumps in and we got it.

[Edit] Also interesting to note that in the beginning, we actually had more players there than the game supports. And this stuff is only just getting started :)
