Re: Error Correction Mod Version 2

Heya, I've been pretty much exclusively playing this mod since I discovered it here, and I'm loving it. It's got the basic botf feel, but just... fixed! :D That being said, I've noticed a pair of small problems that I figured I'd bring to your attention. The first is a small graphical bug, where one...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Well, the dark cloud has a silver lining. After finally finishing my reinstall of windows xp, and almost all related drivers and programs, I can now connect via LAN and play botf with both computers. I am unsure if warzone works, but given that the LAN connection does, I can only guess that it would...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Well, that was fun. One of the gents here was very patient with me and decided to help me out with a few test runs (sadly, I can't remember his name exactly... xdx?). Unfortunately, none of them worked. However, in the midst of updating various bits of out-of-date software, my entire xp machine deci...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

ruthless: I haven't tried to connect to another person on warzone, nor have I tried hamachi nor gameranger. I'd be up for trying a wz connection, but not today (Thanksgiving dinner and all). Let me know how you'd like to go about setting up a game, and I'd be down for it. I did try xp compatibility ...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Thunder & Flocke: I appreciate all the help you guys are offering me, trying to fix whatever this problem may be. RE: port forward / open, yea, I just used the wrong terminology there. Sorry for the possible confusion. When I shut down the programs that could prevent connection, I killed the firewal...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Update: I have tried a direct computer-to-computer connection, with both firewalls on (ports forwarded) and off. Each time, same result - either a hang-up or full crash to desktop on one or both machines. At this point, I can only assume that the game hates me for amassing fleets large enough to orb...

Re: Several Questions from a New Player

Heya Jet, I hear you loud & clear regarding this game; it's a classic that stands up well to most modern games that are out there, even with all of its various bugs and imbalances. 100% agreed that souls would be sold for a modern sequel to the game. Now, as for your questions: 1) I have found no be...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

I double-checked all firewall settings on both computers, and I do indeed have all of the correct ports forwarded; I had done this when I thought that eWarzone might be a solution, only missing the outbound ports for the Win7 machine. I just checked them all again to be sure that they all were indee...

Re: Two mod questions

SCT: Thanks for the links in question; I figured that someone would know what I was talking about, and would be able to point me in the right direction. Sadly, I've never worked in hex-editing before; my only experience in coding / modding anything came with Supreme Commander and lua files. Creating...

Re: Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Hey Flocke, thanks for the welcome and quick reply! So, it turns out that I didn't quite have all of my ports forwarded correctly; I forgot about the outbound ports on my Win7 machine. With that out of the way, the computers can now see a created game, regardless of which machine created it. That, i...

Two mod questions

Greetings, all. I've got a pair of questions that I was wondering if they've been modded somehow, and / or how easy they would be to create. I tried to search the forums for these answers before posting this, but as can be expected, there's a LOT of information here for a new member to process, and ...

Difficulty with LAN connectivity

Hello all. Been lurking around in these forums forever (it seems), but only recently have I had a need to post for help from the amazing gurus that populate this site. So I've been playing this game single-player for a good number of years now, and recently had the fix to reinstall and start playing...
