Nordic Games version of Nexus has broken the multiplayer
« on: January 09, 2016, 07:49:42 »
Code: [Select]
***** INPUT ERROR
File: universe\mod_multiplayer\01_amok.mpgame
Line: 23

>>>#styp_mp_multi_frigate<<<

Description: Constant not defined
*****

This is the error nexus throws, either with dat or folders. File looks fine. I've added the file, just incase anyone wants to have a look.

How could you play MP in the first place? I thought that has been broken for ages except when using Hamachi?

Well, it doesn't matter now to me. As trying to set up a server throws this error, whether or not its lan or internet

My hunch is that those ship classes are somehow not defined. At least for that particular error. Might be a bunch more after that one.

You could try to either change the "styp's" this particular map uses to styp classes defined in the tacticstypes config (universe\tactics), or create definitions for the "styp's" in this amok map (and likely all the MP maps after that).
Likely this will work since you can only tinker with the SP tacticstypes. :(

On my end, my desktop doesn't even get as far as throwing a shipclass definition error. It's already on the registry level I got thrown out, but I'm still using the original game with a CD crack to save my disks.

Actually, I just removed those files.

Now it throws this

Code: [Select]
***** ERROR

File: gserver.cpp

Expression: CoCreateInstance(CLSID_DirectPlayVoiceServer, NULL, CLSCTX_INPROC_SERVER, IID_IDirectPlayVoiceServer, (void**)&VServer)

That looks like the message the error log throws me when I try to let Multiplayer work.

Yeah, and I'm sure that one is an easy fix with the .dll supplied in the top topic in this forum. Except that Windows 10 doesn't seem to be interested in registrating it.
