Re: How to run a multiplayer server?

"Safely bypassing NAT and firewalls is beyond the scope of this FAQ."

Well, it's a shame that this has to be so complicated. What a waste of time and effort. I have given up. Farewell and happy civing.

Re: How to run a multiplayer server?

Louis, thank you for the most helpful advice I've received as of yet. Our friends keep getting connection errors when they try to join. I cannot quote them verbatim, but something along the lines of, "Failed to connect because the host server took too long to respond or..." something like ...

Re: How to run a multiplayer server?

How can they connect to my game if I don't use the "server" in step one at all? Can I set everything up from the client and have people join me? We had a great time on CivWeb tonight, but there are limitations. Here is what I want to do: I want to play the BigEarth 500x25 scenario and I wa...

Re: How to run a multiplayer server?

If the command prompt is on, it means you started the server. If you mean start the game, you can do that from both the client and the server (I think) by typing /start. Thanks for all your help. If I START the server and THEN load a scenario within the client to edit options and things like that, ...

Re: Possible to Lengthen Game?

Ahem... Or would you like to slow down the calendar too, so that while per-turn research is slower, given turn is also about earlier year? That requires ruleset editing, namely adjusting "Turn_Years" effects. I don't see this in the game options. Is it available by loading the scenario in...

Re: Possible to Lengthen Game?

Great ideas that can be used in conjunction, but then you have 1800 AD with mostly size 3-4 cities or everyone still using medieval units. It would be awesome if there was a Civ 4 like mechanism that let you increase the scale of the game. Umh. I don't quite get what you are after then. You asked h...

Possible to Lengthen Game?

Is there anyway to scale the game up to a more epic scale for larger maps? This would mean more turns and slower research. I find that the game is too short when playing on big maps. For example, it's 1200 AD and CIVS have barely made contact.

Re: How to run a multiplayer server?

How do we start the server when the command prompt screen comes on? How do we know that it's on?

Connection Issues

All,

We were off to a good start tonight when someone lost connection as "C3". When he tried to log back in he was issued "C4" and onward but never could select "Pick a Nation" or join back as his old Civ. Can someone tell us how to remedy this?
