I want to play online :D

Post by Next_Level » Thu May 21, 2009 1:10 pm

Hello there :]
I'm new in the forums and a big fan of Giants.

I always wanted to play Giants multiplayer but it seems tha no one is online (GameSpy & GameRanger) :(
I wonder if you know any direct I.P's that are always online and have active players.

Ok, I found a server in GameSpy with 3 active players, but every time I try to join the game stucks in a black screen with this text:

"Waiting for Host to start game"

Any ideas ?

Also when I hosted a game, 1 player joined my game but I couldn't see him in the player list in-game.

I installed 1.4 and it worked fine. After a while it crashed while I was playing online..
