@CurtSibling we now have 5. I haven't played this before. Do we need a 6 and 7 or...? What is your recommendation?
STUCK IN ISOLATION DAY 10... NOW 11... PLEASE LET ME JOIN YOUR GAME! Have been playing this game since I was 10 in 1996 and it's the only time killer that will effectively distract me from the horrible horrible news out there.
I have the Windows 10 compatible version of MGE and Hamachi... how are you guys connecting? Do I need different software?
I am on the Hamachi network --
Name: CIV2 MGE
It would be most fun with all the civs slots filled, but the big three(Empire, Confederation, Pentecostals) are the main ones.
The other civs are all minor, but with good potential for growth, and a good chance of winning.
I'm actually going to sit it out, as my commission work is too heavy right now, but I will be around to advise if needed.
This scenario is for ToT, and also needs the ToTPP patch (minimum v0.13) If you can run a hotseat game in ToT, then I see no reason why you can't dive on in.
@CurtSibling Too bad. Well, we really need to make a decision about rail movement rates, at a minimum. I recommend X6. Thoughts?
Sounds OK to me. Shall we start with the 4 of us tomorrow?
Works for me. If Curt isn't playing can we push forward with the latest ToTPP version? I'd prefer not to have to reinstall but will if I must.
If possible I would also like to use the latest ToTPP v0.15 version as I´m currently using it.
Unfortunatelly I have to say that this is my first multiplayer game, so I don´t know what I have to do.
Is there anything I must aware of?
With Curt out, it seems 3 of us are running v0.15. What about you Gareth?
@civ2units, once we sort out who is playing which faction, start a multi-player game, select Hot Seat - 4 players (for now), select open game, then play your turn when you're up, save the game, and post it here. Respectful trash talk is encouraged.
Pretty certain I have 0.15. How do I check?
And much the same as Sebastian, I haven't played multiplayer in a long time.
There is no way to know, other than by looking a what features are available. The only way that I know of is to install the one you want, overriding the currently loaded version.
Check the "about" menu tab in ToTPP launch screen.
v0.15 it is. Thanks Ciaran. I appear to have pretty much everything selected in the launcher; anything I should deselect?
You guys should all make sure you all have the same patches selected for the game - Someone should post the list.
It will save a lot of crap down the line.
Ok, this sounds easy, even for me.
Attached are my unselected patches:
- MoveUnit event
- Native transport
- Build transporter
Features / Modifications
- Enable throne room
- City/unit overview
- Transform requires tech
- Override health bars
- Navigable rivers
- Leonardo's workshop settings
- City sprites
- City view
- Mouse wheel support
- Civilopedia improvement icons
- Combat animation
- Terrain overlays
- DirectShow video
- DirectShow sound
- DirectShow music
- Move debug
- Debug scripts
All other patches are selected
I have them all selected, except for 'DirectShowMusic' and the two debug patches at the end of the list. However, most features that modify the actual game require a line in 'Cosmic2' to be activated.. I suggest we just add a line to the Rules txt. for the features we agree on. So far, that's just getting rid of unlimited rail movement. Anything else? NoStackKills?
Nostack kills is essential to this one...!
