Playing multiplayer
« on: July 22, 2011, 03:38:45 am »
So, sorry if this sounds ignorant but, how do I play multiplayer? I want to play multiplayer using a WLAN connection with another person that is connected to the same wireless router that I have.

Just input his IP Address? If nothing works, use Hamachi.

Have you ever had a game running in GameRanger? When I try to play someone's name is usually in italics and it fails.

Was he using Hamachi? It is also an alternate peer-peer gaming.

Yeah, that's what I know now =P I thought Hamachi was used a way of IM'ing... Never even heard of the word 'VLAN' until some weeks ago =P

WLAN is about the worst invention since turnitin.com. Most of them do not allow custom port forwarding udp ports. I have WLAN and I cannot play machines on the multiplayer.

1. Don't use gameranger.
2. Make sure you're both in the same hamachi network.
3. Type in the host's hamachi ip in-game.
4. Press "Show Games."
5. Be in the host's lobby.

Hamachi isn't always P2P; it depends on how you set up the network.
Gameranger uses a server to connect lobbies, and also fails all the time
Machines multiplayer is an unstable radioactive compound ready to explode when used to scratch your gaming itch.

SpringRTS is an open source engine made for creating rts games in lua that are fully customizable and compatible with Linux and Windows (Mac to come). It has multiplayer built in. Let's get to work :D

Multiplayer against the machine isn't that fun because they are pretty stupid...
