  • Dperr_Unavailable??

    Hi,

    I've been trying to play multiplayer on my home network. I have a Linksys router, and two computers are hooked up to it.

    Anyways, I trying going to IPX, and then host, but whenever I do, it says that it recieved an error -- 'dperr_unavailabe'? I have no clue as to what this means. It mentions something about needing above direct x 5 (which I know I have on both comps.)

    Both computers are on the complete install, yet when it asks if I want to install DX (after the error) it says it cannot detect the SMAC in the drive. THe weird thing is that the CD is in the drive.

    I really want to play multiplayer on my LAN. Can anybody help me out? :doitnow:

    -Thanks in advance !

    (EDIT:: I also made a number of ports open for Civ 3..this should work I think.)

        Well if you insist... I know something but not how to solve that problem. Sorry.

        That was an easy +1, not that I need them anymore, but whatever.

          Just Some Guesses
          • Are you able to play the game solo on each PC separately?
          • Is DirectX "broken" on one of them and needs to be reinstalled?
          • Is the DirectX version number identical on both PCs?
          • Have you installed the most recent multiplayer patch on both PCs?

            Thankyou all for the replies!

            I solved the problem though.. seems I don't have to do IPX after all.

            It was TC/IP all along. Thanks for the considerition, though.
