Multiplayer problem

Postby simonr » Sat Nov 11, 2000 7:00 am

OK, This is probably just me being thick, but how on earth do you get Multiplayer games to work?

I have done a Recommenede install and I want to play all of the Chrs myself. But I cannot get any of the ooptions (IPX, TCP/IP etc) to work. Could someone give me some guidance please.

Thanks

Do you have the above mentioned protocols installed on your machine??

You need them (well, at least ONE of them) to get the game running in multiplayer.

You also need to put a Name of game and Name of character

And maybe, just maybe read the manual? Image

Did you? Image

It was more of a book than a manual, really. Besides, I only browsed it ... but then again, the engine was relatively the same as in BG 1 ...

Well we've got a saying here. I you do not know how it works, play around with it. If it still does not work , or works even less, then RFM.

Yeah,

Read
the

Manual

So basicly it should be RtFM, but RFM sounds better.

During my help-desk day's that was basicly the thing you _wanted_ to say to customers but could not. Image
