I posted this in the deadly games thread but i thought this might be a better place to get help
---------------------------------------------------
hey i need some help.
and bad cause im impulsive as a ...i dont know give me an example

anyways... i found a friend who wants to play this game in network multiplay but we have a problem:

if i want to lead or join a game everythings fine... if i lead i get the game setup window and if i join well... nothing happens because nobody is leading a game but it trys.

now:
if my friend trys to lead or join it says: setting up network for a while then it says network problems - try again (or something like that)

his network is fine.. we play magic the gathering and master of orion 2 ALOT... without problems..(well except with MOO2 but you all know why )

we both use XP

the only thing that was different on his system so far is that when i wanted to start the game up the first time on his (laptop) computer it said something about needing the AUTOEXEC.NT file... i copied that into his system32 folder and it worked...
when i restarted his computer it disapeared... so i put it in again and marked it as read only... so it stayed next time...

i read the AUTOEXEC.NT file and it says something about network bla bla... thats why i thought it might have something to do with it.

ok... i know i have problems getting my point across so if any whiz kid computer freak hacker guy wants to help me but needs more info just ask... thanks in advance.

**EDIT**

i installed DosBox on my friends computer and he can now lead or join games
but that doesnt help because i cant use dosbox (im running a P2 400... i know...pathetic)

thought id just tell ya.. its pretty obvios that it has something to do with dos and all

Hmm, this thread is a bit old, so sorry to everybody for digging it up. But I was thinking; seeing as how you got VDMSound to work, did you try that? It has network support, although I've never actually tried using it.

didnt think about that.... ill try it when he comes over again.

I think i could get it running with TCP-COM but i can only get a 30 day trial version of that (for those who would like to try it out...you can play DG over an internet connection with that program).

anybody know about a freeware TCP-COM like program?
