Could anyone please explain the puzzling sentence in Max\MAx2 page, claiming that "1.0 version is used due to multiplayer issues", and below explanation is that there are no more Interplay servers around. So how does tha lack of patch solve the problem?..
And is there a way to patch the MAX2 with official patch if I need no multiplayer?
I suspect they mean that with the patch beyond version 1.0 most of the content was probably due to the MP aspects and that without any servers now officially supported this patch data was not needed and could cause confusion and problems.
And though there are not official servers I am sure MP will still function in something like a LAN setup or there might be some independant servers setup for the game
I'm trying to find people to play MAX2 or MAX Reloaded online. Do you still play it? Mail me at diego4779 @ g m a i l . c o m

I dont wanna play the reloaded version online with peeps.

If sum1 can get hamachi and in touch with me I will play the original M.A.X. online via from here with ya.
Wow I have the terrible behavior of posting in forums and not checking up for answers later, it`s just too much stuff going on nowadays....
Well, Stixs, have you managed to ever play the original MAX1 over Hamachi? Could you tell us what sort of magic was involved on that? Because the last time I tried to do this (extensive testing with other people) we could not make the game work properly, it would be terribly slow, like units moving soooo slow on screen, and after 3 or 4 turns the game would crash, even if we didn`t buy any units and didn`t order any construction to happen. Gotta be careful with these types of suppositions and misguiding people dude.
