Hi All

I finally bought the full version of Mech4, I have followed all the instructions for both directx7 an directx8 and it will not launch online for me.

a, I can get the server listing from in-game

b, In setting up the connection type, I select LAN, an DSL( Is this correct for ISAS, we have ADSL)

c, I select use zone listing for servers as I don't know any server IP's(Problem here ?)

d, It attempts to join the game, but I get a message, "cannot join server, either due to network problems or the server may be gone"

e, I tried to use the zone, an when the host launches, the game boots up, then collapses and completely exits the game

I would be grate full for any help as I am totaly lost here


Cheers All

Hi All

Does Mechw4 use dirextplay from DX7 or DX8

I am asking because the game demands DX8 to be installed


Cheers

This game is like many others DirectPlay (Probably DX8).. and won't run behind ISA server.

The disgussions around this is ENDLESS.. and nobody have an answer. I've tried a lot, but i gave up

Does anyone know of some "insider" guru from MS that actually know anything about this? Anywhere you ask MS, you get the links to the default "directplay" pages, wich does NOT work.

I think this may be something that is possible to set up on the firewall client, but i've testet everything i think it is.. and a little bit more, but it does not work.

I am trying this with Operation FlashPoint, and can connect to the server (lists what games are being played), but the moment i try to connect, it just times out. I do not get any "denied" connections in the logs.. it just does not seem like it is able to connect at all..

I've said this before : Maybe the DX8 DirectPlay is started as a separate process (even though you are not able to list it in the process list), and it is this process that is trying to connect to the server.. but then the Firewall client is set up all wrong, and the Dplay just times out? It's the only "believable" thing i can think of.. Anyone share my thoughts about this?

I just posted a message that tells you how to get Mech4 working. I tested it with the ZoneMatch stuff and I tested it joining the server via direct IP. ZoneMatch is the best easyest way to get online I think..
