Some help please
« on: April 10, 2007, 09:37:54 PM »
I have two seperate computers with two different IP addresses that I want to play this game on. I registered my account on my other computer and played on there for most of the day. Now I come on this one, download the game, enter my account name and password into the multi-player options. And when i try to get on, it says log in failed. Can anyone help me?

Actually FS2NetD is down at the moment (or was 20 minutes ago at least) so it's probably just that.

Ohh. I hope so. Because I'd like to play on both computers. Is there any reason I shouldn't be able to use the same account with 2 different computers?

You can use the same account as long as you don't try to use them at the same time.

What I'm less certain is whether both accounts can have the same pilot or if you have to have a different named pilot on each PC.

But if I had different named pilots for each PC, wouldnt that have 2 different pilots my stats are going towards, depending on which PC I'm on, or will it all go towards my account?

(Sorry for the noobish questions)

Can anyone else not log in or see any games at this time? Please let me know so I'll know if it's a problem with me or if the server is still down.

Pretty sure it's the server still down. If you sign into the IRC I'm sure you can set up some Direct IP games with someone there.
If you want your bugs fixed and features added, you gotta get us coders! See the help wanted thread if you want to help out!

I'd need to look up the code but I do know for certain that rankings are done by account not by pilot name so I'd guess they all go into the same pool regardless of the name of the pilot.

Thanks for your assistance but the problem was that the servers were down. (Which they are right now) I can get on the same account regardless of my computer.
