From: Living in the fair city of Melbourne, Australia
I'll be up for MP in New Year (after the patch). I'm in Brussels (one hour ahead of UK, same as Barcelona, I think) Quite a few of us interested now, it seems. We surely should be able to do a nice AAR.
Hamachi, Bletchley? Don't even know what it is. Do we need it? Stephen and I seemed to be able to play without any special software no probs (well, there were probs as to which of us could host etc, and I had to do the port forwarding thing on my router - but all solveable).
Wow, this message has been waiting here for quite some time, phoenix.
I moved to OZ back in June 2012... time flies So now my TZ is somewhat more inconvenient, I'm afraid
Regarding Hamachi, it's basically a VPN emulator. It's mostly designed for multiplayer games with more than two players (say, Europa Universalis and the like) but it's quite convenient when your ISP keeps changing your IP. On the other hand, over the last year I saw I've seen an increasing number of reports on the Internets about Hamachi interferring with some games. So I'd advise to stay away from it, for the time being.
