Imperium Galactica II - Multiplayer Server RELEASE
Hello,

We're announcing the release of the communication server software suite, please find the archive on the address below. The CS will allow anyone to set up their own IG2 hub for players to connect to and play multiplayer matches through. Each server can exist on its own, and doesn't even require internet access should you decide to host for a lan party. If you only plan to play the game and not host it, skip the next paragraph.

INSTALLING THE SERVER:
Download the server package from http://ds.nordicgames.at/imperiumgalactica/ig2_server_release_1_0.zip and follow the instructions in the included "ig2_server_readme.txt". Please note that it requires downloading further software, and a certain level of familiarity with the operating system. The server should be able to receive connections on TCP port 1611 (or the number you changed it to).

CONFIGURING THE GAME:
In the game folder, edit the "ig2.settings" file, remove the "//" from the line containing the server_address" field, and modify the default ip address to the address of the server you'd like to play on. Do the same with the port number in case the server maintainer changed it from its default 1611.

The server comes as-is, with no support and at the same time the project will receive no further development resources assigned to it.

A quick test has confirmed that this release adds working LAN multiplayer to Imperium Galactica 2. I was able to successfully start a space battle, and finish it, with no sync errors. Will further test with actual gameplay. Thank you very much vrbalazs and THQ Nordic!

Thx in advance.

If your friend is trying to connect to you via the internet, you need to forward the relevant port (TCP 1611 if you haven't changed it) to the host from your router/firewall. Also, make sure you give your friend your WAN ip address (so not 192.168... and such, go to whatsmyip.org and whatever that says). Being put behind a NAT by your service provider could also be a problem.

Be praised IGJesus :D
stil have no idea how to play with friends
Hello guyz,

I don't know anything about code, but the run.bat is a bit weird and did not work for me, just open it with a text editor, change all the lines to:
nodejs\node.exe server.js

and enjoy :)
(keep following the readme of course)
@The Developers:
Do you have any solutions about lags ? Even in LAN it is lagging like hell :/
