I don't have that capability. I live in an apartment and I have free internet, albeit through their modem. I either have to figure out Hamachi or I can't use multiplayer from what I've gathered.

ain't it slow to play with a modem? is it even possible/bearable? Hamachi is simple to use, install, then 1. launch hamachi, 2. click network 3. there "join an existing network" or "create an existing network". then you launch games using the hamachi ip or often you don't need to do that but instead you just go to the games LAN games and the game pops up there :D

As a rule I do not use 3rd party software, I even refused to use GR at first. But then BG bundled it with SR, now they are distributing it with a legal purchase, which means they bear some responsibility. Which is why I am using it now.

As far as speed, I have never used anything else other than direct computer to computer connection and it was no slower or faster than GR. It is slow by 21st century standards, especially considering games made 10 - 15 years ago run faster in net MP mode. But you work with the limitations you have and the speed is bearable in MP.

I'll give Hamachi a try. If I figure it out, I'll post a new thread about the game with the guidelines and a country sign up. I'd like to get it going ASAP.

I will have to pass since you will be using hamachi, but I will follow the reports of the game and look forward to them.

I don't know my exact IP though, because it IS an NAT router. We can try direct IP anyways, but Hamachi may be easier if we get additional players.

I'd certainly be up for a Hamachi game, as long as my schedule permits it. A friend of mine plays Hamachi too, although I'm not sure if he's on the BG forums...

I'm good anytime on weekends, while on weekdays I can do after 1700EST on Monday and Wednesday, after 1400 on Tuesday and Thursday, and after 1300 EST on Friday.

Also, when i make the game thread, I'll be using GMT. It makes it easier for everyone.

Ok, he is on BG forums, and I have notified him of the game. I'll get back to you on that once I know more. As for times, anything except Tuesdays and Thursdays after 4:00PM PST works for me generally.
