    Crusader Kings II

    I've been wanting to play some Crusader Kings II on multiplayer? There was a thread for this but it seems to have died out.

    I mostly play with CK2+ and all the DLC's except for the Aztec one, but we can figure out what to use when playing.

    Anyway, anyone interested?

    Sorry, I only play that in LAN with a good friend and collegue of mine. But it is interesting to note: only the host needs to have the DLCs for all players involved to be able to play them. Found that out yesterday, only after buying all expansions for me and my LAN account.

    Heya, both me and my girlfriend play the game from time to time and I think we would be up for some online sessions with you. We're actually staying away from home for the next week but perhaps we could try a game sometime in the week after next? We're both still a bit green with the game so don't expect too much from us, but it would be fun all the same.

    My steam id is 'Naetharu' if you want to add me?

    I think the most important expansion is the rome one, as it adds standing armies. All the others just let you play more rulers with different playstyles.

    So what time should we setup to play and who wants to host it. Being on a uni connection I don't think I will be able to host it.

    Once I get my PC back, I'm in. And in a few months I'll be re-establishing my T1 connection, so I could host for everything. Massive bandwidth for everyone!! And by then I shall be free all of the time. If anyone is still interested, that is.

    Yea sounds great TheIronSky now we just need to consolidate all the people who are interested and find a time that works out for most of the people interested.

    Its a blast. Its sometimes hard to help out a fellow player, as you still need casus belli and relationship values are still important, but generally, you can devise tactics to help them out regardless.

    Bah, for the life of me I can't seem to connect to the metaserver. I'm on a mac. I've got 1630 to 1641 port forwarded for my static IP. I made sure the metaserver has my password set. It looks like my firewall shouldn't be causing any issues either so I have no idea what else could be causing the problem... any ideas?

    Does anybody have any interest in picking this back up? I've never played CK2 multiplayer before, but I'll bet it's a blast!

    Not played CK2 too much but would certainly be very interested in joining in with a game should one get going.

    The core changes of the DLCs get patched into the main game for all owners of CK2. So things like the Old Gods pillaging and pagan kingdoms will exist in-game for all players, even if they do not own the Old Gods DLC. What buying the DLC allows you to do is actually play as those added components (trading empires, pagan kingdoms, Islamic kingdoms etc.)

    It's been broken for as long as I can remember, your best bet is to use direct IP connection with whoever you want to play with.

    Some advice for internet MP: don't set the speed of the game higher than x2 or you will risk a desynchronisation. If a desynch occurs, all players will need to restart the game before trying to reconnect to the host or you will get an error message.
