Aha! Okay I'll try without a password... but it seems strange as it is very likely that a LAN game would be passworded!

Yeah thanks - just tried that and I just can't get them to connect. I see the host and the password is accepted then sometimes it does the Attempts count, and sometime it seems to connect but doesn't really :( Also I have to host one of the demo games or else I get the Full version only message on t...

Same key LAN play stopped working

I managed to get two PCs with the same key playing each other on the same LAN this morning, but this afternoon I get the "Duplicate authorisation key" error! It looks like the hosting PC was recognised as being on the same LAN as it was coloured differently (purple instead of green). Am I ...

Same keys on same LAN

It also looks like 2 Multiwinias licensed with the same key can now play each other on the same LAN!

Which is fantastic news!

Are all games available to them - or just the demo ones?

I think it should be totally configuarable by the host... but then I think that about everything.

(I know Icepick's opinoin differs here :? ).

In the mind of an AI

Hey IV,

I'd love to see an in depth blog post into how the CPU players make their decisions.

What algorithms and strategies do they use, how are they weighted etc.

...just an idea,

My suggestions

These have mostly been covered else where but this is my vote. (Talking of which it would be great to have a voting system on this site/forum whereby we each have 100 votes to distribute amongst a list of suggestions) o Recorded games - I'd like to see how the pros do it and I'm sure they'd like to ...

Yeah, its a shame that a single key cant host a LAN game. I was hoping to do that too. I think it makes good business sense to introduce your friends to it and get them hooked so that they buy the game. What would be good is if demo mode games (i.e. keyless) could only connect to a local game for mu...

I guess that, like any online game, one serial cannot be used for multiple installations if they are online at the same time. Yeah, I guessed that might be the case but I don't know what multi-player modes are offered. Can you host a game for a LAN party or can you only join a game on a dedicated (...

One copy - multiple players?

Hi, I know I haven't got long to wait anyway, but impatience is getting the best of me...

I've got two sons and 3 PCs WiFied together - will we be able to play against each other using one purchase of Multiwinia or would we have to purchase 3?

Thanks
