    I certainly hope so... Why did they remove it anyway? to let people have less fun, so they won't buy the game?

    Yay, got it to work so far. I got a dumb question. Where I get the 1.02 patch at? (I'm using Gold Edtion)

    Hi R'as,

    I am curious.. did you change anything concerning the server? after a couple of weeks not being there, I tried loggin in two days ago. I had to relog in twice because I was kicked twice. so I logged in in total three times.. first time was about 15 tries, second and third about 10.. I thought, wow! that was easy.

    a couple of weeks back I needed over 100 tries for a couple of times, so I'm curious what changed this? it could be coincidence, but it would have to be a lot of coincedence..



    this is positive for my morale though taking 15 minutes to log in is frustrating.. 15 times is no problem at all..

    Drisos,

    I haven't changed anything. The improvement must be on your side.
    Frankly, I have never had your login problems. Usually, it logs in on the 2nd or 3rd try.
    I'd recommend to abort the first try directly after clicking on "Log in".
    Like click "Log In" then click "back" button without waiting. Then try again.

    Imagine you're crouching on a field and calling out for another person. The person will hear your call but won't be able to see you. When you call the second time he'll look closer because he's heard you before and now he'll see you. Something like that.

    Teh fakeserver will be offline for a few hours.
    It shouldn't take longer than 24 hours.
    Sorry for any inconvenience.

    From now on you can reach the fakeserver under:
    shogun-fakeserver.dnsdojo.org

    You need to change your internet.cfg file in the main Shogun folder to this:


    I'll also set up a site for information here.

    Hey,

    dumb question, but this is the current fix for the STW 1.02 MP for the fakeserver right? was checking because I thought there was a newer one out (been a while since I tried to do it). I actually did get into lobby once, no one there but, yeah :-).

    can someone link me to a site that has the STW 1.02 patch (or whatever patch is being use, for my conveince).?

    Hi everyone. I'm new here and have played Shogun Totalwar dozens of times in singleplayer. I've been trying to search for information regarding the registration of the online version. I read most of the posts here, and it helped me a lot, but how do you access the internet.cfs thing? I'm not a computer expert and need a lot of help

    Hello,

    you don't need to register your game. There's no online registration anymore.
    To access the server you only need to edit the internet.cfg file (like described at the top) with a program like notepad, which comes with Windows.

    Baron,

    try "Start" -> "Run" -> type in "notepad".
    It's probably also under Start-menu/Programs/accessory (not sure, translating from German).

    Let's try something different.
    Go to the main folder of Shogun and find the internet.cfg file.
    Right click on it and select "Open with" and select notepad. If notepad is not listed in that menu you can find it with "browse" -> navigate to C:\Windows\notepad.exe.

    The internet.cfg file should then open with notepad.

    If all else fails just download this file: http://www.mizus.com/Ras/Shogun/Internet.cfg
    and put it into your main Shogun folder, overwriting the old one.

    Yes.
    When you've the game installed there's a Shogun folder somewhere on your computer. You'd have to know where since you installed it. The default path is sth like "C:\Programs\Shogun - Total War\.
    That's the folder I mean when I say main Shogun folder.
    Try using the Windows Explorer to make yourself familiar with the folder structure on your computer.

    No, not really. You may have to edit your version to be able to connect to the server. The connection details in the internet.cfg (which can be edited with notepad, see first post) have to be changed.
    If your Multiplayer option is not available in the main game menu, I've posted a fix for that in the STW MP forum.

    Once connected you need to have the same game stats like the other players. Because only so few people play, the best way is to have a friend you can play with or make an appointment here in the forum.

    Ok I think I found the main folder.....but I don't see an internet.cfg file anywhere. The only folders are battles, sounds, voices, etc.

    Hi Baryonyx89, and welcome. The internet.cfg is a file, not a folder. The folders you've described suggest you are in the right place. Now look for the file internet.cfg in the same area where these folders are, and make the edits R'as has described by opening this file with Notepad.

    I figured it out . I typed in "internet.cfg" over the name of my main shogun folder. Then the file was located for me. Thanks for the help Ra and Masamune!!!

    P.S. Why don't i see anyone online right now?

    You're most welcome. Unfortunately, very few players play on the STW fakeserver anymore. There are a handful who would, I believe, but we have trouble getting in. There is a strange problem that affects some of us, where we try to log in and it just hangs up at "Logging in ...." I've never been able to get past this problem on my current computer. Otherwise, I'd be happy to join you for some games.

    As R'as mentioned, the best thing to do is make arrangements to meet players at a specific day and time by posting in the thread that's been created for that purpose, here. Post your interest, and hopefully someone who can access the fakeserver will be along who can join you for some games soon. Good luck.

    I'm glad you figured it out, Baron.

    Masamune, concerning the connection problems try this:
    - Check "Use existing internet connection"
    - Click "Log in"
    - Don't wait but click the "Back" (the dog-ear) button to abort immediately.
    - Click "Log In" again.

    This worked for me but I don't really need it, it just logs in very quick.
