Had a great time with 3 ships, 15 people!

edited August 14 in EmptyEpsilon
I just wanted to say thank you to the Empty Epsilon devs for making this game. I hosted 13 people at my house (two more remoted in) to play a few rounds on three ships. We had no issues with all 18 computers running the game. We have done this with Artemis in the past, and only had some lag issues over there. On EE, no lag or network issues at all. We did have a game crash when running the "Waves" scenario, but other than that it ran smoothly. Thank you!


My setup:
Server (i3-4130, 8gb RAM, Gigabit)
3 TPLink MR-3020 Wifi Hotspots (one per ship) in AP mode
13 Windows laptops on local network
2 Windows desktops on local network
2 Windows laptops connected in via the internet (with live video chat the entire time)
1 Android (Fire 7... worked oddly well!)

  • On the PC that crashed, did it produce a crash log file? It should have a .RPT next to the .exe containing information about the crash.
  • I reiterate my thanks, too. Several of us played within the last few days. We fielded three ships the first game and two ships the second game. The majority of the players were local over the LAN and about 5 of us joined via the internet. We ran a slightly modified basic scenario with the host (k9Lego or cohort) tweaking the experience with the GM console.

    In looking at the .RPT file, I don't see any crash data from that event (nothing was logged for that day). The only thing I found logged in my .RPT file is the exact same error that happened 5 different times.
