Dear Majesty Personnel and Fans--

It seems to me that the online support for Majesty is practically nonexistant -- there is nowhere available where one can play a multiplayer game over the internet. Surely, Cyberlore should at least provide a chat room where we fanatics can find one another and arrange a game, rather than leaving us to buy that $20 thing from Gamespy with no guarantee of finding anyone there in any case. It is an instance of great remissness as far as I'm concerned; one I hope will soon be rectified.

I believe the program from Gamespy is shareware. The $20 is what it costs to have it register it, after which they send you messages telling you about updates and lets you download the patches free of charge.

Unfortunatly for me the program doesn't run on win95. oh well....

majesty multiplayer is currently in a state of transition - it is no longer supported on the zone, and games.com is still getting around to opening the lobbies.

until then, gamespy arcade is the only place to play. true, not many people know about it, so it is sometimes tough to find a game, but rest assured, when you do find one, it is usually a very challenging game since only the die hard fans know about it.

and gamespy is free, the $20 to register is optional. hope to see ya there

one last thing, both MFO and Majesty-Dragon do have chat rooms...im not sure if anyone has ever been there though

Even an admission on the front page of the majesty site that the multiplayer is currently in transition (with pointers to this board for details) would be a welcome shift.

As it is now, it's just intensely frustrating for PC users to try to get multiplay going. It took me an entire saturday, and I'm not a novice when it comes ot computer games & techie setup thingies (technical term there).

At least the Mac users have the reliable GameRanger service!

Gamespy Arcade is definitely free. I downloaded it from www.gamespyarcade.com, I'm using it, and I haven't paid a penny.

As far as I can tell, the only thing you get for your $20 is the ability to turn off the banners. Big deal. Oh, you also get "discounts" and "free offers" (a.k.a. SPAM... no thank you, Gamespy ;-)

Go to http://www.gamespyarcade.com/download/ and scroll to the BOTTOM of the page for the "Trial Version".

But is multiplayer stability improved in the expansion? I still haven't seen a word on this.

GameSpy Arcade is going to be the default multiplayer service for Majesty from now on. Unfortuantely, there was no time to actually include the software on the expansion CD, but there will be a link to information explaining this and where to get GameSpy Arcade.

I assume you are looking for multimplayer on PC. Majesty for Mac ships with GameRanger an online gaming lobby. It rocks and I use it nightly. Lots of good challanges.

I love my Mac

It wasn't the zones doing it was Hasbro. I think people goofed on this one at Hasbro.
