    Thank's alot! I'm not new to FFH2, just to its multiplayer aspect. I did play three interesting MP games via direct connection with a friend, but was hoping to join the wider FFH-MP community.

    Regarding your last sentence: Is Hamachi not relevant any more to FFH2-MP? If it's still relevant then I would love to know how it works, and possibly join some games. If, alternatively, you guys moved to GR or Gamespy, then I suppose the same question is still relevant, but to them instead.

    Hoping to hear from you soon, and thank's again!

    alrighty then. Well, I hear that some people are still able to use hamachi for MP, and basically that is setting up an Artificial "direct connect".

    As of late, there has been more success with Game Ranger and the 'comes with it' Gamespy.

    I'd probably like to play/ start a game within the next 24 hours ;)

    you don't have to download Gamespy .... just Gameranger.

    When I say Gamespy, I mean Civ4 (Internet) which is powered by Gamespy

    When you say Friday ... does that mean you don't have any plans for Christmas Eve? Or is that not really an issue for ya.

    Err... you mean from within the game, via the normal multiplayer option? I remember when I installed the game I had the option of installing GS, and I didn't. Do I have to reinstall the game?

    Well, Im playing from Israel (Jewish so Christmas eve is not really an issue), but Im generally free over thursdays - Saturdays. Im on GMT + 1. Other than that, I might be available on some sundays, tuesday's and wednesday's (now that the semester's allmost gone) from about 14:00 PM my time (I think it's 7 hours back east coast) for a few hours.

    Does that work out?

    I'd be up for some multiplayer on Friday, Christmas Eve. I'm going to need some help getting it to run though. The last time I joined one of the Saturday games, but Gamespy didn't like my installation.

    Yes, I mean from within the game. And no, you didn't need to install Gamespy when you installed the game ... that was just some extra stuff. Everything Gamespy offers from within the game is no strings attached.

    @McWill, yea, usually gameRanger is our best bet anyways ... but Civ 4 multiplayer is nice too as a back-up, just cause its always there.

    So what's involved with using GameRanger. I never heard of it before.

    Hi!

    So should I download game-ranger and simply chose each option whenever comfortable?

    Hmm, I may be able to join. Give us a time and time zone and we'll see. Busy for my christmas eve, but chances are i'll be sleeping it off christmas day which will be when you lot are playing...

    Gameranger is good, I highly recommend since my Civ4 in-game multi doesn't work (too many routers). As a backup I can use Hamachi.
