Good. Then all we have to do is figure out what time. what day and over what connector. The best time for me would be around friday anytime past 6. But we have to do it over lan because that is basicelly the only thing that works for me. Post and tell me if this is good for you. If not then give me the day time and what server. thanks.

Nobody's on GSA because it doesn't work with Majesty 1.3. Every time I try to load a game there it crashes.

Is there a way to get Majesty to connect automatically on launch to a given IP address? If there's some command line argument (perhaps some kind soul from Cyberlore could supply) it wouldn't be too tough to set up a web page where people could list games and click to join. No way to show when a game had started, but at least it would be a way to get some games going.

Carch,

I've played hundreds of games on GSA using Majesty 1.3... and my husband has played even more than that.

What your missing is the files from MSN Zone that are required to allow Majesty to work with GSA.

Go to www.zone.com and try to get into *any* multiplayer game there. The Zone will allow you to download a pack of files. Once you've completed the download, reboot your computer and head for GSA. Majesty 1.3 should work just fine after that.

Thanks... I noticed that procedure in another thread and tried it. It did in fact work for me (well, at least I was able to host a game by myself... there wasn't anyone else around to join).

It's pretty non-obvious, though. If I wasn't a forum freak, I probably would have given up on Majesty multiplayer fairly quickly. Cyberlore might want to put a note explaining what's up with multiplayer in the Majesty FAQ or somewhere else useful. If there's some specific missing DLL or something, it should be made available for download.

Of course, it's probably some licensing nightmare--some Microsoft owned software that can't be redistributed by Gamespy or Cyberlore/Hasbro/Whoever owns this thing now.

Wonder why the Zone dropped Majesty? Is Zone support dependent on some fees from a publisher?

If it were easier to find players, there might be more multiplayer games going on, and if there was a way to set up games ourselves without using the zone or gamespy, it'd be even easier. There must be some sort of settings (environment variables, command line arguments, something) that launch Majesty directly into multiplayer mode. I'd love to know what they are.

Also, I wasn't able to create a game until I'd downloaded the full 10 MB thing from the zone. Not very fun at modem speeds, especially since I'm only using it for one game (and not even a Zone game).
