The time is 6 PM (and the password shn) - by the second do you mean the second of July or the second game? The games are on the first and third :)

It would be the best if we could all agree when we will all be able to play. We could also change the day, if that would do any good... :)

 

I have one question only... You wrote 18:00 GMT. Do you mean 18:00 in London, or 19:00 in London? :) After reading something about these about timezones, London, and United Kingdom is GMT during winter, and GMT+1 during summer. I'm asking this only because, I don't want us to misunderstand each other, just like it happened to us in my event. By my fault... :D

18:00 In London. But...

 

It would be the best if we could all agree when we will all be able to play.

 

You're right, it is a bit unfair of me doing that. When would be best for you two to play?

July 3 fits me nicely. Today and tomorrow I won't be able to play, but I wall be able to play the day later. I hope it will fit Bradley as well, but if not, we could try to figure something out.

 

It's not unfair - like you said to me: it's your event. :) Only here are few of us who want to play the game at the moment, and I hope we can manage to find a time when we can all play together.

 

Off topic, is there autosave in Stronghold 2 as well?

 

Also, I'd like to play a map where we can build whole castle - where the keep is not next to the edge of the map. I have no other wishes. :)

Unfortunately not, there is no auto save. Something I've wished for a long time was there but isn't. :(

 

Check out @bradley0095's file paths and passages - we'll be playing that so that may fit your needs :)

This is the one that we use most of the time in multiplayer as it's probably the best suited map (in my opinion). I haven't come across a map that's as good for playing multiplayer - but I haven't tried Lord Vetka's Arden map yet.

Sounds like a plan :)

If you wouldn't mind, that sounds amazing - and if it's a three or four player it could be good to play with when we have only a few players per map.

Great, so we have a deal! :)

That sounds great! :) Also, if you could create another version of "paths and passages" in which keeps are at least a bit further from the edge, that would be great too. It is the fact that we can do it ourselves, but as we want to play a multiplayer game, I believe it would be the best for one of us to do - and you are the creator of original map. :)

 

I really like the idea of map where one can be attacked from all sides. :)

For a very quick map it's very good, loads better than some of the built in ones :)

 

In fact, that's better than some of mine and I have to spend several hours on them.

Well, you can have your chance now!

 

Arden is in the Kingmaker downloads, please give it a try.

 

I was kind of hoping someone would try "A Four Way Mix"...

 

I would maybe get into a game, but my time zone is across the world, my morning is your evening.

If there's a time which works better for you let us know and I'll see if we can re-arrange the game for then (or closer to that time)

 

How about we try out the Arden map then? - The only issue is that there would be a maximum of three (I think) players on the map.

I'd be happier if we played one of Vetkas maps. :) I don't matter so much about balance, the maps are more ore less balanced, and that is enouh for me. In fact, I like the idea of playing unbalance map - it makes the game only more interesting. :)

 

If Vetka could join us, and play with us, that would be even better. :)

It looks like I could play in the morning.

 

My time right now is 7:30 AM, Novi Sad time is 4:30 PM.

 

I could arrange to play in the morning, so any time between 9:00 AM and on would be good, you would have to let me know ahead of time.

 

I'm still playing with version 1.3.1 and Arden is made with 1.3.1, would that be a problem?

The map wouldn't be a problem, but it would be easier if you could upgrade your version for simplicity so we all have the same version - it stops bugs appearing (like for example when I modified my game and my stockpile had a second floor viewable by all players :) )

 

I haven't tried playing SH2 with different versions now that multiplayer is on GameRanger, but it may work. You can find the patch updates here in case you decide to update:

http://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/25-patch-1-4-update/

http://www.strongholdnation.co.uk/downloads/file/12-patch-1-4-1-update/

 

How about we keep it for the same time, at 6pm UK time, 7pm Novi Sad & 9 AM for you?
