Multiplayer (Hseat, PBEM, TcpIP) opponent seeking plus guide

Post by firepowerjohan » Wed Jun 20, 2007 11:30 am

This topic is for seeking opponents in multiplayer and also I am posting a brief guide on how to use Multiplayer options in Commander Europe at War.

Also should be mentioned there is a ladder for Commander Europe at War here:
http://www.slitherine.com/ladder/ceaw
All you need to do is to register at Slitherine forum, play a multiplayer game vs a opponent and report your result on the ladder page. Highly recommended for those who wish to compete in CEaW :)



From main menu select "New Multiplayer" and then pick your preferred game typ (Hotseat, PBEM, TcpIP).


Hotseat:
You just make your turn and then your buddy makes his turn, same computer and same screen. Every end of turn game is auto saved in the data/hotseat folder

PBEM:
When you have done your turn and pressed "End Turn" button it will save and throw you back to main menu. The save can then be found in the data/pbem folder from where the game is installed.

Send it to your opponent. Your opponent will place the save in his PBEM folder and from main menu pick "Load Multiplayer", "PBEM". There he clicks the scenario button (the one that says 1939) and picks that save and makes his turn and then send the save back to you.

TcpIP:
For TcpIP, one player is HOST and other player is CLIENT.

HOST ONLY should do this first:
i) "New Multiplayer"
ii) "TcpIP"
iii) click the "tick/v" button
iv) click "Host" button
v) wait for client!!!

CLIENT ONLY should do this now:
i) "New Multiplayer"
ii) "TcpIP"
iii) click the "tick/v" button
iv) click the empty IP Address field below the Join button and enter the IP adress of the HOST there and press <ENTER>. Host need to find out his IP prior to this of course. Host will see his IP below the Host button but if it starts 192 something then he is under a network showing only internal IP. In such case you need to do http://www.whatismyip.com
v) click the "Join" button


If you done this correctly the circle in the top of the menu will start spinning and depending on connection after some minute(s) game auto start. Not that you do not use the "tick/v" button in that last meny game and map auto start once both have connected.

If you see the circle spinning for just soe second followed by it ending (or returning to main menu) or if you never see it start spinning you have either done these procedures wrong or you have a networking problem with routers or firewalls.

Commander uses port 6770 and 6771 so if you have firewall problems then allowing those ports can solve problems connecting.

Every time someone ends turn, game is auto saved in the doceument/CEAW/data/tcpip folder or docuemet/CEAW Fastplay/data/tcpip foldder if you platy the fast play version of the game.

In TcpIP, both players need the same setup so they cannot use different mods with edited scripts.

Press <ENTER> to chat in TcpIP

I'm editing this old post because I've started playing again and would like to have some games as the Axis. I have the BJR 1.12 mod installed.

Please be in touch if you'd like to play: jackkeefer66@gmail.com.

I want to try to see if I can host games with TCP/IP via a router. I have used port forwarding for my router for ports 6770 and 6771, but need to test it to see if port forwarding fixed the problem I have. Please send me an email if you're interested in trying: borgerb@online.no

Then I will setup the game at a time convenient for both of us and we can try to connect to each other and maybe play. :wink:

Where are all the online players??

Post by Axisgeneral » Mon Aug 06, 2007 12:47 pm

I take it there are very few people up for a TCP/IP game?

This is such an awesome game and a shame there isnt a bigger community.

Suggestion is to rename this threas to Multiplayer Contact List or something like that. At first glance it just seems to be a guide/advice and not a list of players.

I think most people are playing PBEM because it's more convenient.

Axis I added you to my MSN but I never see you online. If you are around I am looking for another TCP/IP opponent. I find the PBEM too slow.

Looking for PBEM opponent(s). Email to scott.glover@rhul.ac.uk if you're interested or just send me the first turn as Axis. Willing to play either side, any option configuration, but prefer all options on exc. random research. Moderate skill level - perform alright vs. AI with moderate advantage to AI.

Looking for opponent to play either side by PBEM. One turn/day so we can play our side every two days.

I'm looking for an opponent to play a PBM game. I'd rather play Axis. While I do not mind playing against an advanced player (the best way to learn) I must say I am quite new to the game. I play till the end regardless of how it fares and expect the same. I should be able to do 1-2 turns each day.

If anyone's interested PM me or email at mikolajwitkowski AT yahoo.pl

Post by maximax » Sat Dec 29, 2007 1:38 pm

I'm new to this game, which I have on my Mac, and have been playing the AI. I'm looking for online games - can I play people who use PCs?

I am looking for a good opponent for a PBEM game.

Anyway, if you are interested email me at : suprematie@videotron.ca
