i tried to play A2 online with one of my friends and it said that my game is incompatible, even though we both bought our copies at the same time, and they came with 1.1 patch in the disc. i presume that adding new ships makes the game something different and therefor wont work when you play someone
From what I understand, all players must have the exact same mods, right down to the smallest file. Otherwise, their could arise some problems, such as how is player 1's version suppose to display the scimitar class that only player 8 has, since his/her computer doesn't have any of the files needed, such as the sod and odf to tell the ships were to shoot at. This is only a guess, but I'm pretty sure that this is accurate. I can't remember where I heard it, but I do remember reading about this on a site, or a collection of info. from multiple sites that support this.
so it would work if i copied all my files onto his game?
If my guess is right, then yes it would work. But as I said, this is only a guess, so don't quote me on it, although it should.
the game needs everything to be the same.. everything.. down to the models used. i once thought that if i kept the odfs the same but changed the models i could play online but i was wrong. everything has to be the same or the game is see it at differant and none playable. so he'd have to have the same thing as you. like how people play fleet ops online.. iits modded.. but you have to have fleet ops to play you know what im saying? so if you copyed your files and sent them to him you should both be able to play "make sure he has a working a2 and an a2 cd" sorry just didnt wanna get in troble for that one
oh he does as they are the same, with patches but he hasnt modded, andd i have, t wouldnet really matter because e likes being the klingons and i mod the feds so the games would work
something u might wannd do if your hd is big enough.. is to install a2 in two diff places like i did.. so that u can have a modded one and an unmodded one so u can still play online but keep ur fav ships
