SOLVED (look at end of post, after "SOLVED")
I tried to set up a game between a mac and windows PC (windows 7 64bit). I found out the IPv4 address of the windows PC (cmd, ipconfig) and hosted a game. Then, I
tried to connect with
the mac, using the IPv4 address. It did not work. I also found out the mac's IPv4 address and tried to host with mac and join with windows, but that did not work either.
The port was set to
3665 (the preset one). Settings were set to IPv4. However, I think the connection worked out, as it did not read "Verbindung fehlgeschlagen" (= failed to connect), but
Clientversion" (= wrong client version) instead. I tried the whole thing again with two reinstalled versions of RTTR, watching carefully for the version numbers to be the
same. I did not
open the .bat file in windows, so it would not update to the latest version. It did not work. I tried again, this time opening the .bat file and letting the png0004 etc. (or
something like that)
update. The mac version seemed to search for updates every time it is opened anyway (is that correct?). With both latest versions, it still would not work. I now face the
problem that I'm
running out of ideas. Hopefully, someone can help me.
And last but definitely not least: Thanks for the great job you do! I never played Settlers 2 back in the days, but my brother did. He found this gem you created and got
me hooked. We
have the same operating systems, so we do not face the problems mentioned above. Just hours and hours of fun! :)
I found the problem. Even if I downloaded the 0.8.1 - 8823 Mac-Version from Flosoft's Newspost, when I click on Readme in the Settlers Menu, it would read 0.7.2. The
Mac Version somehow feels the need to "update" to this version. To solve this problem just download a fresh 0.8.1 - 8823, or whatever Version you need. Then disable
the Updater as described by RFM in this Thread: http://www.rttr.info/index.php?com=forum&mod=forum&action=thread&id=803
. Your Settlers II Installation will now
keep it's current version.
