What do you do?

Well that's the strange thing. I show a ping on a few of the games and they are low. But most of the games I see show no ping at all.

I haven't changed my router settings from when I used to play, still have the proper ports open, etc. I checked them all. I thought maybe it was because of Vista but I tried an XP comp and had the same issue.

I join a game, no problem. But if I try to click in or change colors or do anything while in the game I hear the sound of the checkbox but it doesn't click in.

If I sit there and wait it eventually boots me back to the lobby and says the host has left the game. If I try to click in and then leave the game and go back to the lobby, RoN stops responding and I have to shut it down.

And of course I can't find anything like this on any of the tech support forums cause really no one posts there anymore cause it's an old game now. Smile

Have you changed your video card?
Install the newest driver to it, for directx too.
If it doesnt help reinstall the game.

Can you start the game in single player?

What do you do?

No, I haven't changed the videocard. I have a Geforce 9600 GTS.

I can start the game in single player with no problems and no crashes.

And like I say, it did exactly the same thing on my XP computer. It used to work fine on this computer and also on my laptop but now it doesn't.

Everything works except connecting with people in the game screen. I can't host a game, but I never could before anyway.

It seems to be a nework/router problem but I can't figure it out since I haven't changed the port settings at all. I even tried it on DMZ. Turned off antivirus. Shut off firewall, etc.

And of course I can play other multiplayer games without problems. RoN is just so picky Sad

Can you remove the router from the network?
Try to play without router.
If it works, the router is the problem Smile

One idea:

If the port-settings of the router are still the same, are the ports open for the correct IP?

I mean, maybe your IP changed and so the ports are not open for the new IP.

Re: What do you do?

Yo too you all guys ! ! !

Nice to hear you again...

I'm most defenetly playing ron in same amount like i did when i got it...

And still playing only standard, damn nomad is too slow and takes too much time...

I have also recruited a new GAD player, my cousin, if you see him in lobby he is inter and has nick GAD_hellAXE. Soo we are 2 now, making sure that GAD still lives Wink We play team games together as often as we can, mostly on the evenings.

It would be really nice too see you all back playing. I still remember those epic 4vs4 games, when i was still nooby and my teammates had to save my sorry ass... Biggrin

I can with a great level of certainty say that i will play ron online as long as it will be alive (or until a decent successor comes - RoN 2)...

And for the end only 1 thing:

152 Dirol

Yes, you lose speed so quickly, especially concerning the initial steps (scout, farms, villie scouts, library research) Biggrin

Does this ever happen to you: You are watching a movie or something and you hear a quote from one of ron taunts and you burst into laugh because you remebered how much you used to spam that taunt and everyone else are starring at you like you are crazy?
It's so funny sometimes Biggrin .
I watched Animal house again like 3 weeks ago and when one guy screams FOOD FIGHT! i remembered how much i used to spam that taunt.....ah good times Lol
Anyway don't mind me, i'm crazy

Re: What do you do?

Yeah. The most recent one I had is the "You have beautiful eyes" in Ice age I when I watched the movie with my wife. I was like wtf this taunt came from here!

The other day I was shopping in a local grocery store. Then here came the song "Wow, I feel good...." //213 rofl.

Smile

Hi all again!

Hi all again!

What are you doing, that is the question still. I am sitting in my laywer´s office and thinking about old times. And i find it strange that i do that, because if have 2 kids, my loving wife and a lot do to. But yet i think about the old days of RoN, or playing computer in general.

It seems to me that the things we spend time with in our youth or as young adults somehow influences our personality a lot. I still feel like i am 24. I wish to play RoN, swim in the nearby lake, spend time with friends,... things i used to to then.

Now i hardly ever take the time and i regret it. But then i wonder if i just do something wrong in not taking the time or if it is just normal that things change. I mean: Is working and making money more important than doing the things we like? Will we ever take the time to do them or will it be too late when we stop working?

Oh man, this sounds like midlife-crisis although i am only 35....

What do you think?

I have similar feelings,

I have similar feelings, Galahad.  I've got 4 young kids, a wife, and a mortgage to support, so they come first.  It's rare that a day goes by, though, that I'm not thinking about RoN in some way.

I've got RoN on Steam now and I'm dying to dig into the multiplayer, but even when I have the time, I feel too scare to, like I'll embarrass myself. Bad

Galahad, what can I say. You have pretty much described my own situation as well. There is not a single sentence that I would not agree to (even the lawyer's office stuff is the same Wink ). It is great to see that other people feel the same.

I have taken the time to play a couple of matches with RoN EE and it was really fun. But this is not "proper" gaming but just a hasty couple of minutes now and then, always being prepared to have to run when duty calls again.

@Bonky: I fond out that I am playing even worse now than I did when I played RoN for the first time ever 10 years ago -even get kicked out of staging rooms because of my n00bishness. So what? It's still fun and that's what counts after all. So don't let this be the reason why you don't play. The more noobs there are out there like us, the less they can ignore us!! Wink
