  • It'll probably take a while for a game to turn up; keep checking back for announcement threads and such.
    I'll surely do.

  • Hi, I'm new to this forum and am just in the process of embarking on a (probably soon-to-be regretted) head-to-head with Kirov.

    I used to be quite a good builder back in the day at 'Poly but haven't played MP for 10-15 years and haven't played SMAC/X for as long. Civ BE got me back into it because SMAC/X knocks it into a cocked hat so far although I'm sure BE will improve over time. But there's nothing quite like SMAC/X ...

    If there are any stalled games out there looking for someone to take over a position (even if it's dire) I'm happy to do it as I'm retired now and have both the time and the internet connection. I'm reliable and on-line pretty much every day so just PM me if there's an opening. I can't promise to be great, but I do honour previous alliances always and never drop out even if the situation is hopeless.

    With regard to new PBEM games, I'm very rusty but a quick learner and hopefully it'll mostly come back to me. I'm a good loser so up for most things (although the rover rush gets a bit old). I really do like team games, for the banter and also to learn how others do things. I'm a good partner for a militarist (you do, after all, need tech to keep all those armies up to date).

    Anyway ... that's me  :)

  • Hello,

    New here. Looking to play against a human opponent. I have no experience in multiplayer games, but against the AI I win all the time since I can reload saved games  :D

    The forum is kind of intimidating right now and it's not really clear to me where to start. A lot of information to take in for now.

    Please let me know if anyone if up to start up a new long-term (PBEM) game.

  • Also looking for a newby / casual player pbem.. I have only played a few sp games, hardest I won was 2nd highest (thinker?), I had a really lucky start though. Trying first transcend atm. So don't expect more challenge then from the AI for now ;)
    Never played anything but the Hive, so it would be good if I could be them and I'm clueless about how to set up a pbem.

    Maeldun, still looking for someone?

  • Hello lifelong player, first time multiplayer LFG.

    up for any kind of Multiplayer but totally confused on how to go about setting it up etc. Is there a guide to this anywhere? To echo above comment, the forum can be a little intimidating (not anything design wise, just a tough community to"break into" with trying to soak up nearly 2 decades of discussion all at once). Any help greatly appreciated.

    Best

    Jack

  • No need to be afraid. I found out most users here are tame and no need to worry.

    If you want to start a MP-Game I'd recommend to post a "Profile" here , read through the other profiles in that thread and write a private message to any person you'd like to play a game with (sometimes people reappear even after looong times when they get a reminder-mail that a private message arrived on the board).

    You can also post a new Thread here if you have specific ideas for a game type you want to play. People will see the thread, read your specifications and reply if they want to join (this way you'll only get those players that check the MP-Forum on a regular basis).

    I'd recommend to do both.

    Oh, I almost forgot. Welcome to AC2 :)

  • Howdy. So I've come back after about 2 years of being inactive on here- (old user was Comrade Crimson) and I've been investigating the potential of playing live multiplayer sessions, specifically with this method found in this link here:

    Does anyone have experience regarding this setup? I've yet to sit down and go through all of it but figure to sit down and try it out at some point, figured to ask if anyone else had gone through this method.

  • I saw this post on reddit https://www.reddit.com/r/4Xgaming/comments/bwhcdz/smacx_ai_growth_mod_version_131_maintenance/ 
    about the new smacx ai growth mod and asked if any has figured out how to play MP via IP lately.

    Last time I tried was a couple of years ago with hamachi / gameranger and I think fiddling around with router settings for hours too from memory, but it failed. Would love to know if there is a sure fire way to play via IP.

    Now it's day and night the irons clang, and like poor galley slaves we toil and toil, and when we die, must fill dishonored graves.

    Seconded, there was a method apparently figured out here- https://pastebin.com/X3br4PvH but I've yet to sit down and figure it.

    I hold a scrap of paper in the darkness and light it. I watch it burn bright and curl, disappearing into nothingness, and the heat burns my fingers. Where has it gone? What has it become? I cannot shake the feeling that I have witnessed a form of transcendence.
