View Full Version : unwheel broke my regular multiplayer

1st Feb 2004, 12:14 AM
both my roommate and i installed the newest beta, and now if we click to play online/lan, none of the tabs come up beyond "favorites". awesome. the mod is pretty cool; it's a hell of a lot better than unrealspeed, but now i'm gonna have to reinstall the game, which is decidedly uncool. i took all the unwheel files out of the system folder and moved them elsewhere and it still didn't work, so i'm out of ideas.

Hmm, I have never heard of anything even remotely like this before. The current release versaion of UnWheel doesn't make any interface changes, and certanly doesn't add or change anything to do with the mulplayer tabs.

Are you sure you didn't add any other mods or manually change your UT2003 config around the same time and maybe didn't try using the server selection tabs until after UnWheel was installed?

I wish I could help, but I haven't the faintest clue as to what may have caused it, or even if it was UnWheel's fault... Sorry.

yeah, i really don't understand why it wouldn't work either. it did do something a little different today when i tried to play online. on the bottom left it said "connection failed - retrying" which it didn't say last night. doesn't make much sense seeing that my internet works.

another thing that doesn't make any sense is why it would happen to both my roommate and i. we didn't even do the same things to the mod... i installed kball, he didn't. he added the serverpackages stuff, i didn't. maybe the "master server" the game tries to contact when you start searching for online games to join broke?

in any case, we're gonna try a reinstall, and i'll try to put unwheel back on and see what happens.

yeah... multiplayer is working again and i didn't even do anything. pretty random. obviously it wasn't unwheel. the only reason i associated it with unwheel was because the online thing has never stopped working before, and it stopped for both my roommate and i as soon as we installed unwheel. let's just call it a coincidence. :)

That happens to me sometimes too. It definately has nothing to do with UnWheel.

what...? did i misspell something?

Turns2Ashes, no, you didn't misspell anything. What I was commenting on wasn't the artwork, which is nice, but the phrase under it. Carmatic caught it that my comment was for "the vision of achievement blinds the vision of morality", so I just said "Yup:)".

Yup :)
