The virus. It was free, as you say :) Precisely. ;) I have it as a left over of the days I played a fair bit of CounterStrike or Team Fortress with friends. You'd send someone scouting for a good server with plenty of space and that didn't take it too seriously, then when they found one you'd just ...

Well, at least you didn't pay for it.

No, you're right it's only for the Illuminati, those who now the secrets behind the creation of Multiwnian, only for THOSE who can actually play the game and are master over there minions the mwg's. Like I said it's only for those :P Nah, I got it too, and I lurk on the forums now and then but I'm ...

Taking a turret out depends on where it is really. The easiest way is with a crate item like an airstrike, but if you don't have one you'll need a big bunch of multiwinians in several groups. Keep them out of range and try to move them so each group is at a different side of the turret (preferably i...

Giant Centipedes of Doom

I'm not sure if this was a freak once-off bug or some bizarre feature that came in with the new patch, but I'm wondering what you guys think about it. I was playing Leap of Faith last night, and dropped an Ants nest on one of the islands that got taken over by Evilwinians. A wee while later I spotte...

Create a new topic about your issue in Windows Troubleshooting . Finally got two minutes to fiddle with it earlier and yep, it's the obvious culprit: Windows firewall. Mildly irritated that it didn't even tell me autopatcher was trying to contact the outside world or give me an option to deny or al...

Re: Incompatible Games

So I was wondering whether anyone here knows why there are 4 servers up, all running v1.0.5? I know that for me at least the autopatcher ain't working. It chugs for a minute as normal then just says there's no patch found, and maybe they owners don't realise there's a 1.1 out. I'm gonna see if a re...

I take it the patch installs via the auto-patcher that launches when you run the game, yeah?

Mine doesn't seem to notice it and is happy sitting at v1.05. I'll try reinstalling it....

Just wondering, what kind of videocards do the guys with problems have? I didn't experience any problems on my old 6800XT in Darwinia, an ATI 1900XTX (Darwinia), nor on my newer 8800GT (Multiwinia). I'm on a 2600XT, and ant nests are fine for me. Forest fires, on the other hand, tend to be horrible...

uhh... what? I assume they are descendants of the Darwinians who left on the rocket ship. I mean, someone had to build the UFO or whatever. But then the MWs get harvesters. Maybe the Futurewinian-sized UFO needs an alliance of winians so big it'd never happen now they're all fighting, but each trib...

I was hosting a 4 way Domination last night, and the Futurewinians appeared a few minutes into the game. After flying about for a few minutes though, they just disappeared somewhere: they didn't hit the ground. Is there some sort of minimum number of MWs they have to abduct before they'll land and i...

I've been reliably informed that mine also contains a blue and a green. Are tins soul-proof? Maybe the Greens and Blues killed the rest en-route...?

I'm normally on after 7pm UK time and there aren't many servers about, but if I host a game it takes only a couple of minutes to fill a 4-player map. Hosting seems to be the way to go, I'm guessing there's a fair number of people just waiting to join. Plus, it means I get to up the crate drop rate.....
