BOTF multiseat configuration and solutions...

Post by roarke »

BOTF multiseat configuration and solutions can be applied like i try in Warzone 2100 ? Well, two mouse pointers on a multiseat system without a program will remain a work in progress... But a Botf multiseat with 2 opened Botf games opened on the same computer can be done ? Read please the below Warzone 2100 topic i made :

But of course, now i'm installing Userful Multiplier in Ubuntu (it will become of course a new Edubuntu in a new partition). Gonna see if that works. In windows, Botf cannot run in multiple instances, someone could do it, i think...

Playing BotF with two empires at the same time is quit interesting. I Hope there'll be a way without external programs in the near future.

BOTF MP with only one computer

Post by Odo »

One simple solution, today tested in Windows 7. The idea is, that you can actually open BOTF one time per user account in Windows.

1. Creature a second User Account, if you don't already have one.
2. Start first trek.exe, create a MP game via TCP/IP.
3. Change User Account (the first BOTF runs in the background of the first user account).
4. Start trek.exe, join your MP via TCP/IP.

That's it! Now you can play MP, for example Team Play with only one computer. Just switch between the different user accounts while playing.
