Im new to online gaming, so I'm not quite sure how to play online.
What programs/patches/mods do I need to install to play online?
Also, how do I fin servers?
There are two things you need to do, depending on the RB version you have.
GOG version (of course, why would you be at these forums :) ): 1.
need to replace baronmmp.exe with this one: http://cid-e196374a237958b4.office.live.com/self.aspx/RBFILES/Baronmmpexe.rar
The reason is GOG modified baronmmp.exe so it would not ask for a CD. Problem is most servers have security running and consider the GOG version as being hacked. The version posted in the link is just baronmmp.exe patched to the latest patch. Now, with this version, you will be asked for the missing CD, click on the upper right cross six times and the game will play. 2.
Open up the mplayer.ini file in Notepad. Under the heading [KNOWNSERVERS]
delete all of the servers listed, none of them exist.
replace what is listed there with just
Server=TCP:126.96.36.199:6001 ; Redux
At the moment of this writting, there are 18 servers running, though all are empty. Evenings in the USA is the best time to find folk flying.
