What to use for Multiplayer?

Post by N3cr0n0mIV » Tue Jun 29, 2010 12:17 am

I was just curious what you guys have been using to play UA online lately. I used Hamachi in the past but I just updated mine to the latest version and it doesn't work. Also the new version appears to be a 14 day free trial unless you want to buy. I logged into X-Fire as well but apparently UA isn't on their games list.

WE'RE SCREWED!!!

Just kidding. I think GameRanger might work. No Metropolis Dawn (last time I checked) though.

Also, from what I can tell of Hamachi, if you verify that you're not using it for commercial purposes, you can keep using it past the 14-day trial. Although the report of it not working isn't comforting...

I haven't played in ages, so this answer is meh.

I logged on to my Hamachi just now to check it out again. The bugger decided to mess up my login and I lost control of my network room. So, the moral of the story, if anyone is going to make another one of those UA rooms, it might be worth filling out all the account and admin recovery forms and such.

We -the french communauty- had forsaken the use of Hamachi. Too many compatibility problems, and way too boring to use.
And yeah brachy, you're right GameRanger is THE shit to use!
Much more practical to use and faster! and as he said, there's a memberlist somewhere on the board... just search forward it!
