Here's some information on getting H&D2 Multiplayer to worksynchro wrote: ↑Sun Feb 26, 2017 4:01 pmAlso, i hope the MP aspects have had their protocols updated. It used to use TCP/IP. I sincerely that isn't the case anymore. The only games that use TCP/IP are turn based as the download is the only thing that's importamnt and the upload can take as long as it wants... unlike modern third person or first person games.
I was a huge fan of the original and enjoyed the co-op game immensely but the first H&D was riddled with bugs and crashing was the norm, which, though frustrating, still had us struggling to play thru a 4 player co-op game. Some of the best co-op gaming i've ever played was on H&D1 and 2.
Here's how to get Deluxe to work Co-op with modern PCs, you can use GameRanger with it.
The original just seems to work.
It's a shame there isn't a way to run dedicated servers for the original H&D, otherwise I'd be all over that. We'll probably be putting up some MP servers for the site as well - will be looking into that and it's costs
Understandable, don't buy the games if you don't want to guys, especially considering they seem like the same version as retail but I see it as supporting it might actually get us some updates later, a steam release (which will force updates because steam users wont accept broken) or the publisher might realise there is interest in this kind of game. I was told gog.com did do some optimisations but was not told what.jackycola wrote: ↑Sun Feb 26, 2017 3:30 pmI am pretty unhappy with this. When they put it up to sell it and make money, they could at least do some fixes and whatever
if there was at least widescreen and multiplayer and whatever notable bugs fixed, I'd instantly buy it and tell my friends to get it. But like that I'd rather not play it or use the free deluxe edition.
If you're already on gog.com I'd go to the forums and complain about it, might help pressure them into looking into fixing it
I mean we have solutions for MP already, they could implement them. Widescreen support would be great.
