hmm I seem to have a little problem with this.. when I pause the game I have to wait maybe 3 seconds to pause the game back again.. this is very annoying.. and what of the multiplayer choices should I pick? serial, IPX , TCP/IP ??

I've never had that problem.

I use TCP\IP

"The Martyr" (excerpt)

There is sobbing of the strong,
And a pall upon the land;
But the People in their weeping
Bare the iron hand:
Beware the People weeping
When they bare the iron hand.

--Herman Melville (written after the assasination of President Abraham Lincoln)

I have the same problem and I use serial. Maybe a change is
in order. I hate that, auto-pause, select target, click...
click....errrr....click....thank you.

Why not transfer your Mp save game into the Sp save folder and play it as a Sp game? Unless you are Mping with other people?

That works? I've never tried it.

Yep, that works. Just copy the save you want from the mpsave-folder and put it in the regular save-folder. Then start up the game as usual and load it as any other saved game in single player.

Don`t know if that helps with that funny pause problem you mentioned, but it`s worth a try.

the problem is it has to braodcast the pause command to the other players. i assume serial is not implemented very efficiently - cos its obsolete and the others dont require much optimisation. tcp/ip is _the_ fastest option from all these, plus its installed on 90% plus of all computers these days. SP is always gonna be better tho. if nothing else heal on rest works.
