Post  remus on Sun Mar 05, 2017 12:39 pm

Hi all
Have been wanting for a while to participate in a multiplayer game with the KS mod but have hesitated for a couple of reasons.I haven't played a HITS game against an opponent although I have played it in Sandbox and enjoyed it. The other reason more importantly is that I am located in Western Australia and am wondering if this would be a problem with lag seeing as most of the players are UK and US based. As I am retired the varying times that the games are scheduled for are not necessarily a problem for me. I do play with two other members of SOW who live in Australia ,usually on a Sunday evening, but on average about once every six weeks.

Please let me know what you think as I would be keen to play on a regular basis.

Hi Remus, good to see you here.

Our usual time slot is 19:00 GMT, and our games plus pre-battle planning and post-battle frothing take about 3 or 3.5 hours total. What time of day is that for you?

Hi Mr Digby

I am eight hours ahead of GMT. That makes it 3 a.m. for me. That isn't necessarily a problem although sometimes I might want to sleep. My sleep patterns are pretty erratic anyway so I can find time to sleep as needed. Have you played any games with people from Australia and if so was there a lag problem? If it isn't too bad I might try to catch a game sometime soon.

We did have an Australian player some years ago and his connection was fine. No problems at all that I recall. And yes, he had to play at about that time as well. Later he moved to the UK with his work so that fixed that problem. He's no longer active in our group though, so there's no first hand info we/he could give you.

Our usual days for MP games are Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

There's talk just starting up of an earlier time slot to play ACW games which would be 3 hours earlier. Its looking like we might settle on Thursdays for that but its not been confirmed yet.

I'll get myself organised and keep checking the posts and get a game in the next few days.

Sounds good. There will be a game Wednesday at 19:00 GMT. If you'd prefer to relax a bit and get the hang of things we could do a co-op vs AI, those tend to be less intense than PvP.

I will try my very best to make the game on Wednesday. Do I have to sign up via the Improptu games thread to confirm this? I have set up my computer on the basis of the game setup thread, is there any other information that I should be aware of? Should I come earlier than the 19.00 time?

Looking forward to a Hits experience

No, we don't do sign ups. Just make sure you have the latest versions of the 3 mods installed and activated. We have been working on the mod recently so there may be some extra files but we will send you these on the day.

Just turn up in TS about 15 mins beforehand.
