Age of empires 1 Gold multiplayer. Cannot detect other games.
« on: October 19, 2012, 02:53:32 pm »

Hey there bay12.

Me and my brother want to play Age of Empires 1: Rise of Rome/Gold edition together.
The problem is that when either one of us creates a game for the other to join, it is not visible in the list of joinable games.
We have tried allowing it to pass the firewall, sticking lan cables directly between our computer and a couple other things, but none have worked.

How do we make this game work?

hmm does this have a tcp option? or are you trying ipx? :D

anyway, try joining by entering the ip adress (set a fixed ip in windows) if the game has an option for it.

or you could try this gameranger program. this works we've used it some time ago.

Yes there is one called tcp/ip. We have been using that. The other two being modem and serial.
We tried using the ip i got from showip.com or some site like that. Didn't work.
I know that gameranger program, i guess we will try that one :) thanks yarr.
