I downloaded both CD's from here:
Then I installed XP Patch (Select the Machines folder as the place to install) and then downloaded the .dll and placed it it in the Machines folder.
Then had to set some options in the settings menu, because I was seeing pink on places that should be transparant.
AND DONE! GOT IT!
Alright. Today I worked on the GUI and the mechanism of building.
Planning to leave the textures as is, since I can edit them later anyway.
Currently running into some shitty situation with 3Dmodels not being centered which causes them to be built in a location they should not be built. Meh.
Alright, now I want to finish the GUI because it annoys me
What worked for @BeVeRenT- and what he forgot to mention was the IPXwrapper http://www.solemnwarning.net/ipxwrapper/ and hamachi network. This allowed him to choose "IPX CONNECTION FOR DIRECTPLAY" in the multiplayer options.
Glad to hear :)
Try this AntiLag patch and see if the connection is more stable: AntiLag.reg
