Update #4, the multiplayer patch, is now available for download at - http://www.cyberlore.com/Majesty/downloads/MajestyUpdate4.exe

This update is ONLY for Windows users. It specifically addresses the problem that arose when The Zone stopped supporting Majesty multiplayer. With this patch you'll be able to play Majesty on GameSpy Arcade without having the Zone software installed.

For I'm the sovereign let your powers pry
You're weak and fraile like you always were
My powers will demolish you like a fire and fur

Woooohooo!!!!!!!!

Jumping up and down, dancing in circles, throwing my arms around an imaginary Jay and hugging the stuffing out of him.

Does anyone get the idea I am happy?

Played must first game of Majesty multi-player in like forever...............

The patch did some magic.

Jay, since the messenger gets all the grief I figured I would give him all the credit. Thanks

Goldy

P.S. I was using my NAT Router, too. But it was set as a DMZ host. Still can't figure out how to configure without DMZ. Another puzzle to solve.........

P.P.S Okay where is Twylah? Gotta dig her out of Zeus land. I am ready to play!.........

I'm really happy that the patch worked for you, Goldy. I was afraid that you were going to end up with one of those strange, computer-specific problems that's hard to track down.

Goldy,

I'm not in Zeus-land anymore... I've entered the land of Heroes of Might & Magic III. I bought the two latest Expansions for Steven last week and have been spending obscene amounts of time learning the game... aside from a day (yesterday) spent at Six Flags riding rollercoasters.

HUGE SIGH!

I spoke to soon it appears. Immediately after downloading and installing the patch I was able to join and play a game with a guy named PickleDick last night.

Today, I attempted to join games with both River_Relic and Wag_the_Cat. I got the same old problem. Aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrggggghhh!

It seems that it was random chance my game worked last night either that or there are certain players I cannot connect with.

I was able to play a game with River_Relic after I disconnected my router and hosted. Hosting a game seems to be the only thing that works consistantly.

Hey Goldy, that router is the problem, Gamespy doesn't really support that kinda equipment, I have problems when ever I use it, and have to disconnect mine whenever I play Majesty or Unreal. Be sure to also close any firewall programs like ZoneAlarm and such.

FFDream,

The first game I played the other evening with Pickle to completion was through the NAT Router. I joined his game and it worked THAT TIME.

The next day after being unable to join a game (the old problem had returned), I immediately disconnected the Router. I played half a dozen games with as many different people. In each case, I attempted to join their game first(the Router was still disconnected). I was able to host everyone that I had attempted to join, however.

Since, the Router worked that time (an anomolous event apparently) and since I have attempted dozens of games over the last couple of months to no avail (without Router) I know that this is not a Router issue.

Goldy

P.S. Additionally, I consider that the limitation that firewall users cannot host games to be a major deficiency. My son plays games on three other servers where he is able to host and play games through the Router. The hosting limitation for firewall users prevents two gamers with firewalls from playing any games together. I am sorry to disagree with you but I call it the way I see it. The reality is that broadband usage is increasing and is the optimal connection these days for online games. Add that to the fact that its is downright foolish to run a PC with an always on connection that has no firewall protection, I would judge that GameSpy is the problem, not the NAT Router or any firewall.

I have a NAT Router which has similar problems at GSA as firewalls.
