Hi there!
Yeah, very creative of you to find such alternative ways to win the missions. I really enjoyed watching it. Great work!

I don't really get it. I cannot launch any Pods, because the Vessels are not in orbit of any planet. But if I write any orbit command, then it responds with Vessel X is already orbiting that planet. Did I miss something?

Sentimental journey :)

Yet still the guide is pure gold!

Yeah, the worst rated part of Machines is the AI... I keep my fingers crossed that you can accomplish something meaningful following this tutorial! Never hesitate to ask for help. Maybe I can help you with simple C++ algorithms.

@Radler I don't know UE, there could be a problem with backward compability.

But yeah, to be honest, I read it like it was 4.1.8 - hence my comment :D

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

What about suggestions from this topic http://wiredforwar.org/topic/107/multiplayer-setup-problems/3? What's more I'm from Poland too, so we can get in touch and try it out together as I own the original discs too and have played some multiplayer games.

You could also try searching for possible solutions here: http://forums.wiredforwar.org/index.php?board=29.0. For example one that I've found says:

  • Yesterday I tried to play with Automatic, but we couldn't find each others game. Then we set the Hamachi Network to a Home network, instead of public network. Then he was able to join my game.

@Warharvest_
you can play the music in the background with a music player of your choice :) just get the soundtrack from here: Machines OST.

I have the original discs and still the music won't play.

This is what I've managed to achieve:
mach1920x1080_fix.png

using some enhanced terrain textures and FullHD.
texture2.zip

@Warharvest_
I would recommend shooting the image again. Just set the in-game resolution to full hd. Then you could use the clear map image map.BMP

I suggest you take care of the models' resolution too. You can use my enhanced textures and additionally enlarge the volcanic tiles. They can be found under \Acclaim Entertainment\Machines\models\planet\multidog\texture4.

Good luck with that :)

@Springpaw this has nothing to do, that Wireshark is a default program to launch the vidcard.cap file.

@Warharvest_ Oh sorry there. I've uploaded a non latest version of my models. Yes I have a fix for that one and some other problems like reaper's auto cannon pink background. The fix is simple - smaller resolution of selected models :)

Please use the models attached texture4_current.zip.

You can also try the https://www.gameranger.com/ software. It supports Machines.

Another suggestion is to use the https://www.gameranger.com/ with which I was able to play Machines online.

@M123 @JRL101
Back in 2011 I enlarged (using some quality-assuring algorithms) all the texture4 files. This includes all the machines, buildings and weapons. The effect is pretty cool if you ask me. You can see for yourself:

hq_models_2.png

Just download the zip and extract it to your Machines/models/texture4 and texture2 folders.

@GTheBlack @mb
I have those files - downloaded yesterday from the old forums (it worked somehow, but is not available anymore).

Check these files here:
map_making.zip

The zip consists of all software needed to follow the http://wiredforwar.wikia.com/wiki/Map_making_tutorial.

I've just added a comment to the article, if you could support me I would be very grateful.

Good to see something's happening in Machines Community :)
