How do I get on multi player with you guys?

Archived from groups: alt.games.operation-flashpoint (More info?)

Hi Noticed that a few of you seem to have online battles on OFP

I would like to join you if poss??

I have tried the multi player option in the game but cannot find any servers
or anything, I can only have LAN battles with my mate over the net via IP
etc.

How can this be overcome.

Thanks

Foxy

    you really need a hosts.txt file

    I will attach mine....

    this file goes in your operation flashpoint folder....

    at the bottom you usually have an option

    Internet/LAN/Remote

    click LAN and one of the servers if up should show itself

    Foxy, before you go jumping boots in first to the server, could you post a
    little more information about yourself please.

    We have had some trouble with people causing problems after discovering the
    server offhand and its something we are going to try to avoid in the future.

    You've got to understand that if you do come in you will be the 'new
    recruit' (no n00bs here, we're a little more grown up than that!) in a very
    close group of friends and gaming buddies and I think its best if you let us
    know a bit beforehand.

    Post up a bit about yourself, like a small 'gamer biography'. Lets read
    what youre all about first.

    A new player charter is required ASAP.

    For the past 3-4 years I have played online with some of these guys, and the
    fresh blood has always been welcome. However, there was always a reason why
    the server wasn't hosted on Gamespy (not least was TJ's 56k!)...

    Prospective new players - please wait. Just a couple of days. A set of
    guidelines is almost ready for publishing which will cover some basic rules.

    Playing on any other basis, without the protection of the rules may result
    in an unexpected kick or ban.

    Hiyas,

    Would that be the same for anyone interested in joining the server? If so,
    I was considering it. A brief "thing" on me and my OpFlaps follows...

    Been playing since it started, primarily co-op games on a private OpFlaps
    server. The server isn't up as often as I would like, or we rarely have
    more than four or five players, so I'd like to move to another friendly
    server to play amongst like-minded individuals.

    I'm 33, married, been computer gaming since the ZX81 (around 1980) and
    played just about everything out there. I prefer co-op games although
    they're very hard to come-by, OpFlash being the very peak of that
    particular gaming sphere.

    I am a follower rather than a leader, am ex-military, and generally just
    love to have fun.

    Any questions?

    Rules?

    RULES?


    What happened to standing your own ground,
    having a personality, having a laugh and
    a joke, not taking things too seriously,
    BECOMING A REGULAR PLAYER? Let them get
    kicked, let them get punted, let them LEARN

    Anyway

    New Troop should be directed AWAY from TJ's boma,
    as it's not really a great intro to online OFP.

    Cos not every server can offer SUCH kameraderie, what
    larks, eh pip, such abandonment, frustration, elation,
    sniper elevation etc across many wide ranging maps.....

    Let the New Troop get used to playing OFP on them thar
    reg-u-lah servers before getting mixed up at TJ's....


    >shakes head and sighs<

    Rules??

    Sounds like you would fit fine there H. Try http://tj-www.kicks-ass.org for all info and needed addons (including Ventrilo instructions and stuff) It's allot to download but really worth it! Mainly the best stuff OFP has to offer sinds its realease a few years ago. Remember though, because of some problems we are working on a kind of "sign in form" so we know a little bit more about the ppl connecting, till that time, just connect and join us on Ventrilo/OFP for a few Coop games and see what you think of those crazy bunch of oldies playing games :-).

    Thanks, I'm interested too. I'm 50 and ex-military. Ex-military band, that is.
    ;) I've been waiting for a military band add-on. You never would guess how
    deadly a saxophone can be in the right hands. ;)

    I've been playing off an on for about a year. I haven't quite memorized all the
    numbered commands but I know enough to be dangerous. I'd like a situation to
    play with some people who like to have fun but not too intense about it. It I
    wanted intense people, I'd learn to play bridge. ;)

    Fanfare of the engeneers in Holland, back in 88. Did the 100th year

    Fun time, no weekends of, but always dinner in the officers-mess. We did 4
    hours of standing straight every day at all kind of military parades all
    over Europe. You won't hear *me* complain :-)

    I used to do a lot of official three piece dinner music gigs in the Officer's
    Club at MacDill AFB in Tampa (where I live now). We did a couple for the US
    Readiness Command (now CENCOM) where the joint chiefs were there and all the
    major Hucka-Muckas. They had the "Red Phone" guarded by two Security Police
    there and the whole nine yards. The more stars on the shoulder the nicer the
    General seemed to be. They always invited us to partake of the goodies during
    our breaks.

    We even had to do a New Year's brunch at a four stars house on base. Man, was
    that an early one after partying the night before. ;)

    AF Band meant a lot of spit and polish and more than enough Mickey mouse to go
    around. Oh yeah, I got my share of base parades too.

    I'll have a go..
    I updated the add-ons page on TJ's recently, so you should be able to get a
    proper install from there.

    First, start with the Sebnam addon.
    What I always do is putting all files from the addons folders into the
    default operationflaspoint/addons folder, NOT in /res/addons since it might
    create double files (and conflicts)
    Forget all the others, just grab the files from /addons and /res/addons in
    the ZIP and put them straight into /addons. ALERT !@! Get the sebnam_1a.pbo
    from the ROOT of the folder too, and put that one too in /addons

    Then BAS. Get all the files, and extract the PBO files in there to /addons

    Install FDF, and the FDF 1.2 update. It will create a neat MOD folder and a
    shortcut to use (I'll sum tham later)

    Install all MFCTI related files (again all into /addons)

    Install WGL , the update and GAYA island. It too will create a MOD folder
    for you. Just use the default settings.

    Install ECP 1.71. It will create a new mod-folder for you. Copy the 3 ECP
    dr-updates into /@ECP/addons, install Dynamic Range into /@ECP/addons.
    Install JAM2.
    Forget the INQ weapons, we don't use them. They are not compatible with DR
    and JAM.

    Last, but not least, get the "various" addons and again extract (or copy)
    them into /addons.

    Then you're ready to rock and roll.

    ** We use different shortcuts for different type of games, since you don't
    use ALL addons at the same time.** , so here is my bunch of shortcuts :

    OFP default (196) : "E:\Operation
    Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE" -nosplash -nomap
    OFP FDF : "E:\Operation
    Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE" -nosplash -mod=finmod -nomap
    OFP Wargames : "E:\Operation
    Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE" -nosplash -mod=WGL -nomap
    OFP ECP : "E:\Operation
    Flashpoint\FLASHPOINTBETA.EXE" -nosplash -mod=@ECP -nomap

    As you can see I use the (old) beta196 executable. You replace it with the
    exe you use, and the folder you install it in. The -nomap makes sure you
    don't have memory-issues (see AL's site for info) and the -nosplash gets rid
    if the intro.

    That's all. Get ventrilo, install it following the setup-instructions on
    TJ's website, and join after 2200 CET. If you still miss stuff I'm happy to
    talk you through the difficult parts...

    Hi Ned,

    Thanks for the writeup, I'll give that a go. Loads to install, but I dare
    say I'll get it working one day.

    Now if you chaps could just let me know when you're accepting new players,
    that's the major obstacle :)

    Looking at your age it won't be a problem. Like I said, get on the ventrilo
    channel and meet us.. From there it's an easy start. The 'rules' are mainly
    setup to avoid children connecting.. Most of us deal with children in
    daytime and want to have a beer with grownups :-)

    A lecture is a process where information is passed from the notebook of the
    lecturer to the notebook of the student without necessarily passing through
    the minds of either.
