I remember a few weeks ago one of the OF patches nerfed the ability to play across a network on custom maps. Do I have this right, and is this still the case? Has the developer acknowledged the problem?
Also, though this is not quit on topic for this forum, is there any trick to installing the original COH if one installed OF first?
ATM it seems thats .sga maps don't work online anymore, but .sgb maps do. But i don't play online, and it really doesn't affect me, so i don't know for sure. I you want to find out, then why don't you try it? If you want to know if they work online, then i assume you play online. As for a trick for installing CoH as a seperate game, so you have CoH and OF installed at the same time, try installing them to totally different drives, i don't think CoH would check for a currently installed copy of OF, and it should detect there being a CoH on there, so to a different drive partition might work. Otherwise there is a nifty bit of software out ATM that can convert your OF install from v2.xxx back to v1.71 and forth, which makes it easier than having two installs on the one computer.
I have similar problems. I cannot play -dev maps or SGA maps on multiplayer or lan. Other players see game but the Join button is greyed out. Can anyone else play multiplayer SGB or SGA maps over lan and/or internet? [email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/email]
Well using the CoH Launcher, i can play mods over LAN as well as .sgb maps (-dev enabled) and .sga maps. Online though it seems that .sga maps and mods that've been archived can only be played, and that's with or without the launcher.
