hey peepz... after some years without playing blitzkrieg i wanna play again ! but hows the situation , are there any players around ? from what i understand the STEAM version doesnt support Multiplayer , is that right? otherwise i would pull the trigger and buy the game immediately.
i see theres still the game ranger and open spy option but from what i hear theres nobody online... would really like to battle again
We played 3 maps last night 2v2 on Openspy with no lags crashes or slow down. Just fast paced BK action
It works really well and is much nicer than having to use GR. It is identical to the original Gamespy server, only the name has changed. With Steam and it's glorious functions it easy to arrange games. Why everyone has ignored this and started using GR is a head scratcher.
Anyways, we have arranged a game session for this Saturday the 28th starting at 6pm BST. We are trying to get as many players as possible to join. There is no specific game criteria . It is just a casual meet up for people to arrange and play their beloved Blitzkrieg.
moo In order to load a game in openspy, what ports to open? please.
I've been in the map room, but did not see any loaded, and if users saw the chat room, I spoke to you right?
I spoke to a few new guys tonight as few new people decided to log on. I presume your nick was Wittman?......
It is possible that we were no games running when you looked in the server list. I can host a server for you to join as a test if you like before you start messing with your router. There is a good chance that you will not have to do anything. Most players have been able to join and host games with no problems at all. If you want to add me over at steam, please feel free.
Here is the information from the gamespy install. I do not know if these ports will be the same for Openspy, You will have to seek the advice from the pro's for a definite answer.
"""You might have problems hosting an Internet game or joining one if you are behind a firewall or have some network traffic blocking programs installed on your computer. This section describes what TCP/IP ports are used by Blitzkrieg and GameSpy. If you are having problems connecting to the GameSpy master server or hosting a game, make sure the following ports are open.
Blitzkrieg uses UDP ports 8889 & 9089.
GameSpy uses the following ports (unless specified otherwise, they're TCP):
6667 (IRC) 80 (HTTP) 27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat) 28900 (Master Server List Request) 29900 (GP Connection Manager) 29901 (GP Search Manager) 13139 (Custom UDP Pings) 6500 (incoming, UDP, default roomquery port; can be customized with roomqueryport=<port #> in svc.cfg) """
***Edit*** just found this in another post which explains all............
"When I entered all of these manually into my modem/router it worked. If you have only 8889 and 9089 open you can play but not host on Gamespy or Openspy. The other 8 ports are for Gamespy (and Openspy) functions like querying whether your match is still playing and allowing whispers from the chat lobby to players in game or in game hosting room. I *think* you can host direct IP games with only 8889,9089 open, but I have never verified this."
Warlord: Thanks, Stan. Now, are they included in the original mod file? I was checking the entire IUII thread yesterday, but could not find any download links for additional maps.

Warlord: BTW, it was the subject that caught my attention with this maps; IMHO, they were both passable both visually and in terms of gameplay, but you designer/mappers are way more experienced than me when it comes to Quality Control

kaoz: Warlord: the IUII mod is undergoing a major update for which i'm still going through all the MP units. The last IUII version has an error in it which is why i haven't uploaded it. However, i don't believe there're late war maps in it (yet).

Stanenberg: They are in included in the Mod file I have (from Mats folder). Concering the quality, on the second map for example, the entire terrain is covered by one of the preset fields in the map editor.

Warlord: Lads, hope I'm not pressing a wrong key here, but can someone help me contact Leon? I just sent him an email using an address he posted on the R6 folder of the East Africa Mod, but seems to be unavailable.

Kevin: If I am not mistaken Leon is sadly not anymore among us, Warlord.

Squire James: I thought the same but I wasn't sure if my memory was correct
Aug 14, 2021 16:56:26 GMT 1
Warlord: Thank you both, lads.

vonosten: Leon died a long time ago. As did other great members of this community. They are still missed, and I hope their contributions will live on for a long time!
