We should have an AoK night at some point, for those who have it. I haven't played in ages, but it'd be interesting. Who's up for it?

...Game-Ranger?

Also, Drah has stated his interest in this. Lets see if we can get a full 8-person game going.

Age of Kings? Afaik it doesn't even have working copy protection so theoretically we could ALL play it. Doesn't help that I'm terrible at RTS' in general but it's still fun.

I'll double-color with anyone that's got a problem with micromanagement.

Depending on when my new modem gets to my house I might be interested in playing some. Just gotta get a copy again.

I'll only play on turbo, though.

It's pretty cheap, I think it's even on GoodOldGames now.

Either way we try not to talk about pirating software here, thanks.

Anyway. I just played a few TC games, I think I remember how to do this. Let's decide on a time and get it all set up, how's this weekend?

Count me for half a person since I'm so abysmally terrible at this game.

I'll play when May hits if you're good for playing with someone who's terrible at the game. My copy is currently uninstalled and a hundred and sixty kilometers away or so and I've got too much work to do until then. I might be able to get a game in on the weekend of the 19th at the earliest?

I likely won't be able to play this weekend either. Unless it's like late late sunday night. But maybe not then either.

Race Benefits for anyone that doesn't remember. Chinese are great all around for faster players, Byzantines and Teutons are the major defensive races, and the Persians are for infantry heavy offensive players.

I had alot of fun when I did the old classic intl AOK theme nights with Emp and those guys back in the day...so if it's convenient for me to play, I'll play. I think I still have my copy around here somewhere.

Are we talking +expansion pack or not?

Yeah, xpack is a must really. And honestly, for those who can't find your copy, just torrent it. You own it and you're allowed a backup.

I would love to play. I play three times a week with my friends at school. The only problem being if I can get past the university firewall.

Something like Hamachi might work with that. Ben, any firewall advice?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gameranger

It looks like a match-making/tracking application for PC and Mac games.

I'm guessing the reason Dimi wants us to use it for AOK is, otherwise, we'd have to go through the browser-based match-making service at MSN Games (does it even work anymore?) which would probably be a gigantic pain in the ass.

A bigger pain in the ass would be getting everyone's network settings set up such that someone could host an IP game over "DirectPlay". Remember, this game was released back in 1999.

But if GameRanger isn't the holy grail that it makes itself out to be , we could all just install Hamachi and play a LAN game.

That being said, let's get this shit going! I just played the Joan of Arc campaign and a few RMs, I'm warmed up enough to get rushed just after Castle.

FUCKING EDIT: Also, it'd be great to get a voice chat going at the same time. Does everyone have Skype?

Thanks PerfectCore.

Though I already provided information on what makes it magical, "So that we can all play together easily without spending hours configuring our routers."

The MSN Gaming Zone has long since abandoned AoK (if it even still exists) so the only way to play is by making sure everyones routers are properly configured, which is 1. a pain in the ass, 2. different for everyone's router, and 3. never ends up working the first time around, and sometimes takes forever before everyone can get it working.

The other way is through Hamachi, but it's less straight forward and i've had problems with it in the past.

Gameranger is made for this purpose, and 80% of people using it are using it to play AoK:TC.

If you want to know all the intricate details, look them up. Otherwise, it's easy, straight forward, and will get us playing in no time. Do it.
