    Icon2 Multiplayer INFO

    RULES

    I) 12.000 money for each player.
    The mod should be balanced for any amount between 10k and 15k, though some factions might become useless in some cases.

    Money per team, and Max number of units per team that keeps same balance even if different number of players:
    For 1vs1 & 1vs2 == 12.000 each team == Max 20 units each team
    For 2vs2 & 2vs3 == 24.000 each team == Max 40 units each team
    For 3vs3 & 3vs4 == 36.000 each team == Max 60 units each team


    II) MAP SELECTION:
    Better choose a flat map.
    No redline camping allowed.


    III) FACTION SELECTION:
    The person who chooses his faction first is the "defender". The one who chooses later is the "attacker".
    If a player changes his faction, he becomes the "attacker", but I'd suggest not to repick.
    The host who selected the map should allow the other to decide who will attack (=to choose faction later).

    In battle, if no player want to advance, the "attacker" is forced to move until some unit is being attacked. Shooting arrows or catapult fire count as valid attacks.


    IV) ARMY SELECTION
    Suggested rules: 50% infantry

    - Max 5 of the same unit.
    - Min 50% of the army must be infantry (non-cavalry, non-skirmishes, nor monsters).
    For 1vs1 battles I suggest to use 33% (1/3) in stead of 50%.

    - Max 3 Mumaks/Trolls/Fellbeasts/Berserks (in total)
    - Max 2 artillery
    - Max 1 general bodyguard unit (those with horn ability, or hero portrait in unit card)



    GAMERANGER


    PLAYING OVER GAMERANGER

    A global network where you can play clasic games like rome total war in virtual LAN
    Gameranger Download: http://www.gameranger.com/

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    We have found a simpler way to play in gameranger, by creating a fake RomeTW-ALX.exe that includes the path to our mod.
    I used the tool "Advanced .bat to .exe converter v2.75", downloaded from Softpedia, I hope my .exe does not cause troubles.
    It should include only the icon and this code: lotrtw.exe -mod:alexander/lotrtw -nm

    1) Rename your RomeTW-ALX.exe to lotrtw.exe in your RTW main folder
    2) Copy the fake exe from \Mods\lotrtw - GameRanger\RomeTW-ALX.exe
    to your RTW main folder
    3) When gameranger launch the game automatically, select Multiplayer -> LAN games,
    and you should see the other players there.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




    HAMACHI
    PLAYING OVER HAMACHI

    Virtual LAN with limited number of players per room.
    Hamachi Download: http://www.softpedia.com/get/Interne.../Hamachi.shtml

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If you have problems to see the other people into RomeTW (LAN games), you can try this: http://logmeinwiki.com/wiki/Hamachi:Rome:_Total_War

    1. Log on to Hamachi
    2. Disable your primary network, not your hamachi...keep that running.
    (XP: Start > Control Panel > Network Connections)
    (Vista/W7: Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center)
    3. Launch Rome: Total War and go to LAN games.
    4. Alt+Tab out and re-enable your primary network.
    5. Wait until Hamachi connects again.
    6. Alt+Tab back into the game, and you should be able to see available games.

    I have cleaned both nets.
    There are few people connected lately, but I guess there will be more people when we release a new patch.

    I'm afraid the only online players are the same as always, and lately we have hardly played.
    I try to connect on weekends in the evenings.

    Matap, mandame un privado cuando puedas jugar, a ver si nos juntamos unos cuantos el proximo finde. He coincidido con Tranky o Curro de vez en cuando, y tambien he visto gente nueva, pero nunca conseguimos reunirnos 4 al mismo tiempo.
