how do i get a race to work in multiplayer like the dominion and breen do?
What, just "in multiplayer"? In my experience, as long as each player's copy of the game is EXACTLY the same, it just works. Just install a blank copy onto each machine, then install whatever you like on all of them in the same order... eg: A2 + patch + Newest Upgrade Project (parts a through g) + Physics Project In that order, on every players machine. EDIT: I assume, of course, that you are on about A2...
i was under that impression also but the race i made wont work.
it is for armada 2. i can play all the races in single player but when i go to play on line they show up but wont work. when i click on it it just goes to a stock race.
i changed the race file but which gui files do you mean?
I think there is a gui file for the selection screen. Don't quote me on it but it was my understanding that this is were you imput the race for use in IA games.
It sounds like you've got it in the right place, but the button is linked to a stock race rather than your new one. Then again, I could be completely wrong and the game is capable of just picking a stock race when it can't find your new one... Does it pick the same one every time? What was the max number of races again?
I think you thought not multiplayer but instant action.
You have to write an AIP for the new race to build ships and stations.
i wrote the aip. it works in instant action but when i go to play online it wont even select it. it goes to a dif race. im not sure if it picks the same race each time.
