Multiplayer

Post by JohnMcCarthy1 » Sun Jul 02, 2017 1:41 am

I am guessing that because it's been such a long time and there is still no sign of "Live" Multiplayer or intentions of implementation, that it will never be apart of OoB:wwII. I would like to ask what is the reason for it not being apart of the game? is it considered a waste of development time? is it too difficult to implement? or is it something with server upkeep/cost/difficulty? i'm not angry and I hope i don't come off as such, but I am just curious why something so commonly seen in most of all modern games has been omitted from this game which in all other respects is pretty good.
I still would like to know why there is no "live" multiplayer for this great game.

You are a fan of the popular Big John McCarthy referee?

No, this name, which isn't my real name is an old inside joke from 6th grade. I had no idea who "Big John McCarthy" was until I started using this as my in-game/online name a couple of years ago, and MMA isn't my thing.

Usually a couple of multiplier scenarios are published along with a new campaign.

There are a number of multiplier custom scenarios here, check under 'Stickies'.

Playing multiplayer official senarios is covered in the manual.
For custom scenarios you need to download and copy the scenario to the My Games etc Scenarios folder.

I think, this scenario (battle about new brittain) is broken. After pressing hour glass game isnt loaded on server. Nothing happen.

I say I am a bit let down that we don't get new lists for use in multiplayer. For example, buying winter war should let you play against other countries in that year, and get for access to the Finns, buying morning Sun should get you Nationalist Chinese to fight in multiplayer. Would like to see that happen.

Game should be better secured for multiplayer games. Now player can go out to desktop and loaded turn again.
