European IP players community

  • I'm new to this forum but i don't see any new IP games being played recently, and don't feel like a turn per day is a sane pace for the game like this. So i want to publish a small community of gamers that play multiplayer SMACX some evenings/weekends (UTC+2/3).

    We used to play for about ~5 hours per week avg for the last several months. We use N2N VPN as a transport layer for SMAC, XMPP (Jabber) to arrange a game and chat about it, and Mumble sometimes for voice chatting in game.

    Find us there: xmpp:smac@conference.bitcheese.net

  • My advice is to be patient and check back once a month or so - we get several people a year looking for IP games, but never at the same time...

  • Since I have bronchitis godknowswhyinjuly, this weekend will be probably the only one I can actually play IP for a long time. Are you there, L29Ah? And I'm sorry but can't talk too much these days, so I can say 'hello' via headphones at most and then switch to keyboard.

    What's that strange address you posted?

  • I barely follow Russian letters and understand words only insofar as they're similar to Polish. But I guess it's no rocket science to set up a chat room and a game (IIRC, Hamachi and Skype was all we needed).

    Lemme know if you have time Saturday or Sunday.

    Yeah, you only need Jabber and n2n and we speak English.
    2-3 players will have time Sat and Sun, I presume.

  • Hmm, n2n page is not there:

    http://www.ntop.org/products/n2n/

    And my Firefox warns me against following this link due to insecure connection:

    https://register.jabber.org/

    Any less shady software we could use? I can't think of any single reason against Skype, really. ;)

    I use n2n from svn: https://svn.ntop.org/svn/ntop/trunk/n2n/n2n_v2
    It sucks indeed, and we're going to move to openvpn soon.

    You can use any of the lots of free xmpp servers there. Most of them are accessible for registration from within a xmpp client. bitcheese.net, for instance.

  • Gentlemen, I just checked those three links, first gives me a 404 error, too, and my browser SWEARS the other two have infectious net herpes.

    -As much as I want some IP to happen, I can't encourage anyone to go to any of the sites linked thus far.  You see how it looks, right? 
    Skype is indeed user-friendly as Kirov points out...

  • All right, I admit we are using some obscure means of communication :)

    I can think of few reasons not to use skype, like it being proprietary, known to violate user privacy, not having sane logs, etc.

    How about IRC? all you need to do is to go here https://webchat.quakenet.org/ (certificate not expited), think of a nickname, type #smac in "channels" and press "Join chat".

    Best way to install n2n on windows is that https://sourceforge.net/projects/n2nedgegui/. You can join IRC and we will help you set it up in realtime.

    The happy life is thought to be one of excellence.. now an excellent life requires exertion, and does not consist of amusement. If Eudaimonia, or happiness, is activity in accordance with excellence, it is reasonable that it should in accordance with the highest excellence, and this will be that of the best thing in us.
