Most of you don't know me or won't remember me as I have been gone for some time. I think it's been something like a year since I last played RoR or even came to these forums. I'm sure some of my old friends are around still though.

I just wanted to post to say hi to everyone and let the oldtimers know that I have started playing again and to look for me if they want a game. I cant play anywhere near as good as I use to so it wont be a good game, and I don't play near as much as I use to, but if you see sarmis_mano on I may have some time to play.

Mmm, I think I've seen you around on the forums before. Welcome back! Anyway, hope to see you on the Zone these days too. Not that I play very much nowadays though...

Hey Phill! surprised to see me?
I think you were around when i still posted Duan.
Whats up Blitz, I'd be up for a game, but knowing you you'd crush me pretty fast nowadays.

I think I remember you too Centurion... or maybe thats CenturionZ_1.

Does Combat Villager (AKA Ace)still post?

Haven't seen Ace around for quite some time, but I'm only half hearted in my lurking.

Ace doesn't post anymore. Augy came back and posted after we caught up online.

Blitz may beat you but as I recall once you clean off the rust you will once again be a force to be reckoned with. As DX has become better than I ever have been in a very short space of time I'd like to see you two go head to head - I reckon you'd be evenly matched.

Mano - yes, it is great to see you again. Grab me on MSN, ICQ is too much of a pain in the arse.

Centurion is not centy z, who is staff here now. You may remember centurion as global chimp?

I think it'll take some time for me to clean off the rust. I'd bet most of the people here can beat me pretty easily as I am now. I remember both Centy and CentyZ, but what about SBE? I remember he played a bit, is he still around?

I'll get MSN up and running and see if i can find ya. Do you play on the zone Phill?

Mano, if you think that you've lost your touch with the game, playing me would prove you wrong. I not only lost my touch, I didn't start with one in the first place before dropping playing the game.

As always, I intone: Lost the AoE CD, only have RoR; can't play.

Mano, I added you to my MSN list. Hopefully we can get a game going soon. Haven't been playing for a week now, and that's quite enough to pull my level down. Oh, and Phill, you flatter me.

Anyway, I'm stuck at home with a severe case of diarrhoea today. I'm taking the day off from school. Quite a good excuse to play some RoR too.

Well, it seems i may become one of the forumers that can't play. Today I tried to play a game with Duan but I couldn't get a connection, I tried to get a game with other people and the same thing happened. Since I never had this problem before on dial-up I think it may be my new DSL. If thats the case I guess I'll just hang around here and chat with the other forumers.

My friend, here's help for your "Firewall & NAT vs. Multiplayer Gaming" troubles!...

In what regards AoE / Ror, there is only DirectPlay involved.

You must open (manually) in your Firewall a number of ports.

Here is what to do:

Go to this article:

If you are playing Rise of Nations or other games:

Look in:

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=fh;EN-US;gmsnetw

Hope this has helped to bring you back (not that you'll play with me, I suck seriously, so no way ) but there are still so many good players around, that you'll certainly enjoy it very much!

Leo

Mmm... the links aren't working for me here, Max.

Anyway, yes, Mano. Max is correct. Your problem is exactly the same one Blitz had for over a month last time. We couldn't get a game going at all until he bought a modem to use instead of his DSL connecton. After that somehow he got the people working on his building connection to get the firewall ports open. I'm quite positive that you'll be playing with us frequently soon.

I can't direct connect either, but that's because of my router...

Hey! You're right about the links... HOWEVER!
I went to the Ensemble site and I picked up a support link directly from their Web site !... That's how I got to that MS page.

Maybe you want to try the Ensemble site and get to the stuff through there....

Sorry for not having checked the links independently, but I just placed in my reply a plain "copy/paste" of the actual link on top of IE....
Go figure why it won't work when called directly...

That MSN article has been removed I guess. I checked my router settings and here are the ports you need to have open to play on the Zone:

80
443
6667
28000-29100
2300-2400
47624

These were taken right off of the MSN site and it got me up and going playing with my router.

Hope this helps!
