Anno 1404 Venice online multiplayer
« on: March 06, 2019, 11:16:35 AM »
Hi there,

I have installed Anno 1404 Venice via Porting Kit on my Mac. Over all it runs great, but the online multiplayer does not. If I want to connect in profile menu, it says, that servers cannot be connected. But they are online. So my guess is, that the Wrapper is missing internet connection. How can I add this?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Bye,
Nic

Hi!

That's a known issue, haven't been able to fix it yet...Sorry about that. So Multiplayer is at the moment a no go I am afraid.

Hi Gcenx,

first of all thanks for your reply. I am new to this topic, but I think, Engine "WS9Wine1.9.1" is that, what you are asking for. Am I right? Is this helpful?

That’s a very old Wine version, the game might be using ddraw and could cause other issues.
The newer wine versions “should” give multiplayer for most games but ddraw was last useable in wine-3.4.

At the moment I’m not sure what would work properly for your situation.
I’m a little busy now trying to find the bug causing dotnet/vcrun to hang for my custom compiles so I had to pull the recent WineCX builds I was providing as a result.
