hi again.
thanks for your rapidity.
here's my ip:
choose the time & the date you wish to play,you can find me anywhen(i'm jobless actually...)so i've got plenty of time.
i don't know if there is a chat during the game, so if somethething goes wrong during the play we can stay in touch through this forum.what do you think?

You might want to consider exchanging your ip adresses via the private message system as that's a bit safer :)

I also believe - as far as I remember - that you can also play IG via gamespy.

Do you have to play 1 vs 1 via IP? or are there any servers. can u have matches bigger than 1vs 1 ?

26th Sep 2006, 11:16
from the panel control "multiplayer"of the game you can select until
4 players .
the server appears to be gamespy(installed automatically with ig):scratch: ,but i couldn't get through.

Hi sorry for not getting back to you on sunday but my cpu fan decided to call it quits and die.
I am on my mates comp at the moment mine should be back up and running on thursday so we can arrange to get a game going and we can make it a 3 player if the other member wants to join us .

26th Sep 2006, 12:43
completely agree.
the more we are the best it is(or something like that,you know my english is not at the top).:nut:
just one thing,i never played online,as such before our first encounter i will need some tips.
here how i intend to run a multiplayer session,tell me if it mistaken.
1:at the choosen date & time open connexion.
2:run ig.
3:go to the multiplayer panel.
4:click "internet" (at the right of "lan" button).
5:insert the ip(in that case your).
at this point ig should do the rest.

that sounds about right mate if we set it for some time this week.

Hi mate are you ok for sunday night about 5 pm my computer is working again now thankfully.
Let me know if this time is ok with you if not we can change it to suit you .

28th Sep 2006, 14:51

but do you mean:
sunday 1st october 17h00 in the afternoon.
or the night between sunday 1st & monday 2nd at 05h00.

Hi mate sorry about this but i forgot its my nieces birthday on sunday and she is 18 and i have been invited for abit of a do at my sisters house at 17:30 can we bring the game forward to about 1300 hrs if that is ok with you.
My memory is getting stupid i would forget my own head if it was not screwed on :lol: .
I hope this is ok or we can make it another day,the only reason i remembered is my sister rang me this morning and asked me what i was getting her for her birthday on sunday and she told me not to forget (which i did).

29th Sep 2006, 14:36
it's no trouble for me.
i've got the same problem with my memory,maybe i need an upgrade.
about sunday it's 13h00 in the early morning,isn't it?
i must check my time zone,13h00 for you means 12h00 for me,if you live in the UK as i guess.
anyway i'm stuck to my comp. all the day,so one hour more is not a big difference.
see you on the battle field.

Hi mate i am not sure of the time difference as i am not sure which country you are from i am from the uk, and i meant 1300 hrs in the afternoon if that is ok.

29th Sep 2006, 18:09
13h00, sunday,i make a note of it.
i won't miss.
by the way,i'm from italy.:eek:

You guys might find this useful:


Although I believe Italy is gmt +1 and England gmt so that shouldn't be too hard to figure out ;)

***news flash***

i've just give a look to the manual instruction and you know what ?we are all wrong.
in order to play online one of us must be the host and set a game,the other player join.
on the multiplayer panel on the right side choose the name of the game ,a password ,the number of player,then press create a game and wait incomers player.:eek:

oh that changes it a little if you want i can set up a game and then you can join or you set one up and i will join.
Either way i dont think it really matters who set one up as long as we get to play.

As we are both sat at the computer why not do a trial run to see if we can get it right.

1st Oct 2006, 20:05
i've been to the game spy arena,http://arena.gamespy.com/,and they do exactly the same we do here,i mean you can take dates with another player.
and to keep the score you must take a screenshot to proove your victory.
not very confortable.

if you are good at ig then join in with our online game you wont be dissapointed dr breem is a fantastic tactician who will make you think about your strategy and tactics, which is what this fantastic game is all about.
For those of you interested both myself and dr breem are trying to get a regular game going so that we can all enjoy this game and fight against real people and not just the computer.
