Network Games - Save and reconnect?

Post by Thomas G. » Wed Jan 12, 2005 3:49 pm

Hello all,

I had the problem during a network game that I got disconnected from the others by network failure. Immidiately the computer took over. Is there a way to reconnect to the game?

And is there a way to save the game status of a network game and restart the next day?

Thank you,

Thomas

That's something I thought would be very difficult to code so it isn't possible to reconnect a disconnected game. The problems were things like, the other computer would probably reconnect at a different IP address and how long would the server (and the other clients in a game) have to wait before giving up on any reconnection attempts?

Okay, thank's anyway. And let's keep fingers crossed - this did not happen anymore since I wrote the message.

Cheers,

Thomas
