    Hey forum, I'm looking for a server where WTP is played online or for online buddies to play against, I'm loving the game but the AI is way too weak even at max difficulty. Anyone interested get in touch!

    Hey bud, I'm on the latest version, and play on GMT time zone. How do we set up a game?

    One person hosts a game using direct IP connection, opens the ports in the router (look up civ4 ports). The other person connects to said IP address.

    If you use Steam and use the version without direct IP connection, you might be able to get it working by editing the ini file to make the game start in WTP. Apparently there is a steam feature to find other players, but I never used it.

    I recommend setting up communication outside of the game. I have good experience using skype for coop gameplay. Part of the problem with the ingame communication is that it's disabled when you talk with the king or similar.

    You should all use the latest version because the difference between releases is almost exclusively bugfixes. In fact only the newest version is without known issues for multiplayer. If you manage to desync the game with 2.7.1.1, let me know, preferably with a savegame, which desyncs when you press end turn. There shouldn't be any desync bugs left.

    I think the question is if it's 1 or 2 plot DLL files. You need to use the same version.
