I cannot agree with Bo on this. I've been playtesting beta NetPlay, Barbarossa scenario with one of the other playtesters for quite some time.
Lately the developer has been fixing bugs with Solitaire that would also be bugs in NetPlay. That has taken a lot of focus off NetPlay, but compared to release, a huge amount of progress has been made. There are definitely still issues with the naval portion of the game, but they have minimal effect on Barbarossa.
Also if you considered the bug list upon release versus now, the number of bug fixes has been prodigious.
I'm also involved in a multiplayer game using public version 1.3.3, Hot Seat mode and Teamviewer. We are in Nov/Dec 41.
Actually the question was is the internet play now stable? This is why I asked could we open the beta testing for all posters and let them be the judge of where we are and see if the players think it is stable or even improving.
You happen to forget paul I see every comment on the so called netplay beta testing, and the comments have not been positive. And forget teamviewer as I am talking about MWIF the game as sold by Matrix not an outside entity like teamviewer that circumvents the actual game.
You seem to be enjoying MWIF through teamviewer and that is a good thing, for you, but most of us other players do not seem to be enjoying any form of net play.
Beta testing is already open to all players willing to install the public beta. If people want to do some beta testing of Netplay Barbarossa, more power to them. If they don't - that's fine too.
Gee, where in the world would the negativity on the beta side be coming from, Bo?
Teamviewer does not circumvent the game, it facilitates the game.
1- I did not know that they the general public could actually test netplay Barbarossa with Steve's every so often fixes so I stand corrected.
2- The beta testing negativity is coming from me loud and clear without malice or prejudice, I was watching very closely comments from you and bommerrang about how Barbarossa was doing lately and it did not seem to be going well. Remember my comment "OUCH"
3- I truly know nothing about teamviewer paul, but this I know it is not part and parcel of Matrix's MWIF.
