Hi Guys

Has anyone had much success in getting a network game going? Me and a few friends used to have them regularly up until about 2012 and decided to start one last night but couldn't get beyond the same date each time we tried - even when we created a new game and did it again.

I think this is one piece of the game I've never managed to have function properly in recent years and wondered if anyone had any hints, tips or ideas as to how to set up and get things working? Or better yet, let me know if it does work or you're having the same problems!

Thanks

After some 12 years, the current circumstances have led to a group of old friends starting a network game again. It's only been a couple of days but we're moving without any issues, other than the odd disconnection due to shitty internet. Thing is, we had to play the game completely vanilla, i.e. without any editor data files and the real name fix as it was proving tremendously long to connect with the host. Other than that, pretty smoothly I have to say.

That's one of the things I tried, removed all of the editor files etc and we just kept getting stuck. Not sure what's happened there. I was so excited about it too. Do you think there's anything else that could clash? Surely not graphics?

Will everyone else need to be vanilla too or just the host? (me)
We're playing fine with no issues. Have you got it sorted?

Im using the real name fix too
Do we know how many managers can legitimately be on a server before it becomes unplayable? Or does that depend on the quality of each persons internet/computer?

Would love to get an actual online game going of say a 16-team league or a 20- team league, but I imagine this is practically impossible to play.

Yeah managed to get it sorted with all of us on Vanilla versions of the game
