    I am thinking of hosting my first game so I have hopefully set up everything right, so right now I have a test game up in noscorev2.

    I am using hamachi since it is easier for me that way, since I have no idea what my IP is and when I try it via whatismyip.com, it does not come up with the correct one, so hamachi would be easier for me.
    https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi2/ to get hamachi and try and see if you contact the game
    The ip is: 5.142.31.72

    So to get on you will need to join my network is classical_hero's Game. The password for the network is ch. To get into the game you will see my ip and you just need to copy that to get into the game.

    Also I need to say what preferences you want for the settings, besides the map.
    This will be an unrestricted game so post your choices of leader. There will be up to twelve players so get in first and hopefully everything will work out.

    The settings are more than likely going to be:
    map: Big and Small
    Size: large
    Speed:normal
    Difficulty: Diety
    Tech Brockering on.
    Huts and random events on.

    Players
    1. classical_hero - Suryavarman II of Persia
    2. bbp - Pericles of Byzantium
    3. macedon - Pacal II of Inca
    4. Hercules90 - Willem of Ottomans
    5. Zane0 - Victoria of England
    6. 2metraninja -
    7. Friendly Fire -
    8. Cull - Willem of Ottomans

    A Big and small map more than likely, but it is open to suggestions. Have you tried to enter the test game?

    I wish to join as William of Ottomans.

    I used to have a simple Hamachi connection but with the upgrade I hardly recognise Hamachi anymore.

    Oh do you mean the full " classical_hero's Game " including Game?

    I was hoping for more people, but we can play with this many people. I have set up a test game, it is in no mod s just start up from scratch. Hopefully everything is set up properly, but if you cannot connect to the game, then please state so and hopefully I can fix the problem.

    I think there might be some people over at Apolyton interested as there was an attempt earlier there to participate in a noscore game.

    Maybe I'll join if I set up hamachi right.

    What are the suggested settings of the game (speed, rules, etc.)?

    So is this going to be PitBoss or straight online?

    I cannot devote the time to massive binge sessions into the middle of the night and I've also not enjoyed huge success in terms of connectivity with hamachi.

    I was part of the 'No-Score' mod trial on Poly and it was not a great success. It's a great idea if you can keep it stable.

    All this said I would like to give it a crack as Byzantium.

    My only preferences are that the map should be Toroidal and that Random Events should be turned off. Whether Large is big enough for 12 players is a moot point as well. A 20 turn start of enforced peace might be a good idea as it is a bit of a downer to be knocked out before you have played more than 5 or 6 turns.

    Well this game is going to be a pitboss so it is for anyone, but I am wondering if there is a chance for a quick start with everyone playing the first turns for perhaps and hour or two.

    Hamachi is very reliable and I have had few issues with it

    Also remember that this an unrestricted game so you can choose what leader you want with Byzantium. There will be a period of peace so that no one can be rushed too early.
