    Hello,

    With EAW1.28c we implemented the possibility to play with seasonal setups and up to 4 different plane sets.

    Though for now we didnt release new plane sets, but iam working on them!

    If the player have the correct setup loaded, all players will see the same season and plane set, fitting to the hosts settings.

    To achieve this we implemented that the current date and plane set number of the host get transmitted to the clients.

    Then EAW load the related season and plane set, if available.

    As result we will have more graphical variation and once we got the plane sets ready, we can choose out of up to 120 planes, without the need to load something new.

    Greetings,

    Knegel

    It comes even better!!


    We just test a "server.exe".

    This exe make us able to join a already running multiplayer game.

    Currently we allow max 16 players, but we could open it for up to 256 player, though i doubt the game still would run lag free.

    The GameRanger guys was so nice to adjust GameRanger to support our new features!!

    So now we can play with max 16 people and we can join and leave a steady running "mayhem"(FFA) game by will.

    We are working on a team setup, where axis planes take off from one base and allieds from a other close base.

    The player can choose between one and the other nation and different planes. :)

    I hope to have this ready till christmas!

    Greetings,
