How about a Bloodbath on Halloween?

Postby Wrim » Fri Oct 18, 2013 12:52 am

I'm going to try to host a game on October 31st if I'm able to, let me know if you're up for it!
I'll post the IP on this thread and on the DA Bloodthirsters group and my Twitter and everywhere else.
Let's get Bloody!

Good idea Wrim!

What version are you going to use?

While my internet probably wont work I could give it a try, assuming I could figure out how it is done.

Though my internet works, I'll use the days left to figure out how to run a server.

I think I'm going to use the latest one, whatever that is? But if it's better to use an earlier version I can do that, as long as I get it running. :)

I think the GoG versions might be best. Most available build for most people anyway.

I can host a B2 server if necessary, if we are playing good old Blood just let us know the TCPIP emulator of choice.

I would even be up for some co-op. It's been awhile.

I put a Blood 2 server online as a test.

It is running B2 with Nightmares, GoG version. No mods or extra rez's. The IP is 75.38.210.17

If anyone has a chance, please try to connect to it to make sure I have my firewall setup correctly.
If it works we can play on Halloween if we cant get a Blood game going.

As a lark I tried putting the IP into my copy of Blood II running through WINE...

Nope. :lol:

I took it down soon after ZzardozZ posted, which is probably why you couldn't connect :P

I will put it back online for now and please tell me if you can connect. I'll leave it running for a day or 2.

Works like a charm :)
Would you mind if I told some other Blood fans about your server?
Also, is there a way to check how many fps you get? I'm not getting any lag, just curious.

You can limit FPS on the client but not the server as far as I remember.
And sure, let anyone you like know about it. I have it set for 8 slots max which should be fine for vanilla B2.

Bloody hell, it works! :shock:

Some minor rendering problems and a slight sound delay, but it works!

I guess I should try giving LAN another go with Blood II through WINE as well.

Argh! :banghead:

I'm gonna have to pass my friends. My Internet has been down cause of IRL stuff so I won't be able to join. I'm using a mobile device connected to a close-by WiFi connection to speak with you now. However, I'll be there in spirit and I'll try to post something here on B2's birthday (Oct 30th iirc). You Bloodites have a grand ol' Bloody time though! :guns:

Oh and Wrim, I'm cybermage303 on deviant art btw. You might've known about this first.
