The sword and the faith

My fellow MMembers,
Due to the port issues a lot of us seem to be having, I have talked to Corbo and decided that it would be in the best interest of mod night to try using Hamachi.

For those of you not familiar, Hamachi is a virtual LAN client that will allow us to use SC's LAN (UDP) function to play games up to 8 players without lag or issue no matter the ports. This will allow mod nights to return to their former attendance and glory. However, this will not work if we do not all get together and make it work. I know a lot of us are busy with school/life/things less important than mod night, but I am sorely sick and tired of missing mod night due to ports, and even more so watching how inactive it has been. I am going to make every effort to make mod nights fun and awesome again but I cannot do this alone.

Here is what I need from you:
-Get Hamachi. https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi/vpn.asp?lang=en
-Install Hamachi, and make sure to check the box saying Disable Vulnerable Windows Services. Otherwise anyone on the network can go into your files. After Hamachi is installed, you want to click the second button on the bottom left and select join an existing network.
Network: Mod Night 1
Pass: Mod Night 1
After doing so you should see other mod nighters listed there.

Next, you have to set Hamachi to the first network to be used when SC goes to find games on the LAN. This is different for XP and Vista users.
On XP:
Network Connections
Advanced
Advanced Settings
You should see Hamachi, Local Area Network, and possibly Wireless Network Connection all in a box. Using the arrows on the side of said box, move Hamachi to the top of the list.

On Vista:
For Vista: Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center, then, on the left side panel, click on 'Manage Network Connections'. Now press Alt, click on Advanced > Advanced Settings and put Hamachi at the top of the list.

After that, everything should be set up and you should be able to play just fine. You may need to restart Hamachi, SC, and your computer in order for the changes to take effect. If anyone notices anything I missed, please feel free to say something.

Well hamachi is still the same program on Vista as it is Xp so you dont have to worry about that.

However to get to the area where you make HAmachi above lan, you start with the Network and Sharing center bs, then go to manage Network connections (Should be where you see the hamachi, your lan, your wireless, etc) and it runs the same way as the XP instructions.

Also, I suggest setting this up ASAP guys. You'll always be in the network when you start hamachi, and it can be used at any time, even for other non-mod night things.

I've never been able to get Hamachi to work properly for any game, but if you can help me make it work, I'm all for it.

Lord of the Locker Room

You guys didn't try using hamachi before? What...!?

...

Well, that explains quite a lot.

There's no reason hamachi should ever crash your computer. Be sure to have hamachi running and everyone on before actually starting Starcraft, too.



Show them your butt, and when you do, slap it so it creates a sound akin to a chorus of screaming spider monkeys flogging a chime with cacti. Only then can you find your destiny at the tip of the shaft.

You play LAN (UDP), and you can see the LAN games created by other users.



None.

This. You select it instead of Battle.net at the multiplayer screen.

You should be able to do it fine. Install hamachi and report any errors and I'll try to help.

Edit: I only see Kevin, Flyinghat, and ForTheSwarm in the network right now.

Mod Night is tonight guys, get on it!

Edit:
Mod Night 2 / Mod Night 2
Mod Night 3 / Mod Night 3
Created as back up networks just in case. We shouldn't need to use them.

The three ways to play mods on Mod Night:

1. Secret the allience, yo.
2. Mass shit, bonus points if the unit sucks. Moar points if its a turtle.
3. ACTUALLY PLAY THE MOD! ZOMG! AMAZING IDEA, NO?

Suicidal Insanity shouted: Since scmdraft used to not have any trigger editor besides plugins, and classic trigedit originally was a plugin, there is a lot of classic trigedit UI state in the trigger data holder. And I am now splitting all of that up into real UI and real data, to support multiple classic trigedit windows =)
oooh, multiple windows will be good

Jack shouted: Is scmdraft on github/ever going to be open source?
not on github and probably won't ever be. Starcraft strangely uses the player's CD key in order to create the in-game text. since scmdraft also uses the in-game text, there is code in there that harvests the cd key out of your SC install

i dont think so. Windy landings like that are far more common than you think. Just youtube. There are a lot more scary looking things like that. Also on fucking 747s and those things weight tons unlike this aircraft
