If anyone wonders why there is still no installer ..... I have massive problems with my inet connection and have to share one with my neighbour for now. I cannot upload anything( not anything big) at the moment without getting into trouble with my neighbour ( his line is beeing neerly blocked when I upload ).  :-\ We have to wait

Here is a windows release of the latest megaglest beta!
Please test it!

Whats new?

- much less traffic in network games
- chat before the game starts
- automatic client disconnect messages, if someone leaves the game
...

I have a problem playing MegaGlest on my computer. It just simply won't start. Every time I click on the executable in windows, an error dialog appears saying that Glest couldn't start because of invalid or incorrect settings. The dialog also states that if I reinstall the program, it might fix the error. I tried reinstalling, but it didn't work. I am convinced that it has something to do with how old my computer is (I'm buying a new one soon). The normal Glest executable works though, so why shouldn't the MegaGlest exec work.

Furthermore, my graphics card is nvidia and is so crappy and old that it doesn't support "3d textures" and "shadows". In order to play Glest, I have to disable these two things. Maybe that's why I'm getting the startup error?

Thanks in advance.

I think it has something to do with the glest.ini.
Copy your glest.ini from your working glest to megaglest. And don't use the latest megaglest for windows use version megaglest 3.2.3.

This one?

I guess I'll just try the older version...
The older version is great!
Nice... I miss some stuff in GAE.. but the other better features make up for that.  :)

Copy your glest.ini from your working glest to megaglest. And don't use the latest megaglest for windows use version megaglest 3.2.3.

I don't understand what you mean by this. Does Megaglest have an ini file of its own? What I usually do is install the latest version of Glest (which works perfectly). Then I install MegaGlest which completely ruins the install.

For the record, I am using version 3.2.3
I will post a version of my glest.ini, but later. I'm not using my home computer right now.

How to install megaglest:

-  install glest 3.2.2

- Before you start save glest.exe and xerces-c_2_8.dll form the glest 3.2.2 installation directory to another directory.

Installation:
In the zip-file called:megaglest_3.2.3_win32.zip from here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/megaglest/files/megaglest_3.2.3/megaglest_3.2.3_win32.zip/download
are these three files:
xerces-c_2_8.dll
lua5.1.dll
glest.exe

unpack/copy those to your glest directory.
Now it should work. ( it works here on windows XP service pack 2 )

Please, do not call it 'glest.exe', I refuse to do backup crap, when all you have to do is call it 'megaglest3.2.3.exe'. :-\

Absolutely no luck. It's not working at all. It keeps saying that something is incorrect with configuration. I wouldn't pay to much attention to my problem though. Like I said before, my computer is ancient and will be replaced by another in less than 2 weeks from now (HP is in the process of building it right now).

In case you still choose to pursue this, my video card is an nvidia geforce2 MX (Just go right ahead and laugh. My new computer will have a 1gb ati radeon, though). As I stated previously, this card does not support shadow and 3d textures so I have to disable them. In addition, in order to play the game at a reasonable speed, I have to lower the colorbits and depthbits from 32 to 16. I also have to change the resolution to 800 x 600. All of that work just to get 25 fpm. It's worth it though, because I love this game. It is possible that all of these changes are messing with MegaGlest. Or maybe it is a hardware problem.

Anyway, I can't express how happy I am that I'm getting a new computer. Can you imagine doing anything with a computer that has a 64mb videocard (And I'm a graphic designer/web designer/java programmer  :-[)? Anyway, thanks for help.

Well, if you look back, or in the other topic where they talk about it more, you'll see that nobody has got it working...

Then how could it be stable if nobody has gotten it to work.  I'm relieved to here that I'm not the only one having this problem.  ;D
