None.

I just checked the firewall settings and Drakan is allowed free reign to the internet.

I'm just not sure what's going on.

But it's probably WindowsXP related!

I tried it again and eventually I gave up because it didn't work.

For some reason, I was unable to connect to another computer (join a game).

Or when I hosted a game, it didn't appear on Gamespy Arcade.

I'm thinking I need to do more work before I can actually host a game.

Okay, done that. Now I need a volunteer to see if it works. The problem with Drakan is once it starts, I can't access any windows software until I exit the game. So I can't send a chat message with the IP. And I can't get the IP until I host the game. Does anyone know how to control which levels the...

This is the line:

set MasterServerList "master.mplayer.com:27900,master.gamespy.com:27900"

I don't really know if it works, because I need someone to be on the other end to let me know if it does.

The only time I tried it with someone else, they didn't see my game appear.

My youtube is the same as the one here.

How do you "host" a game?

I recently tried to host a multiplayer game from my computer.

Although I went through all the steps, it appeared not to work.

Is there anything I need to know to make it happen?

I was just reviewing the schedule.

Are these games going to happen?

I'm suffering Drakan withdrawals.

Do you just play the same maps with different characters?

I'm in that place with Zoe right now.

I would have thought they'd start in different places and meet later.

Are there multiplayer servers for SBOD?

Since Drakan has at least three permanent servers, I asked Gamespy Comrade to "scan" for Severance servers.

I didn't find any.

Is this game played multiplayer?

I've got a copy of the game.

However, since I'm not that good at it, I'm unlikely to provide spectacular videos.

If it's something simple, then I could probably accomodate you.

I had noticed that certain enemies are subject to "friendly" fire. They soften each other up so the kill is easier. It's weird, but the last one of the "super orcs" I met I accidentally (I intended to select a stronger weapon) attacked with a low-level weapon. Zoe took 50% damage (probably less, con...

I'm not really used to FPS, seeing as I can't stand them. My only reference for a similar game is Drakan: Ancients' Gates. In this game, when locked on, you could spin around an enemy while slicing at them until they fell down. Since I'm limited to a certain number of blows depending on which weapon...

My review of Severance

Now, given that this is a Severance fan forum, what I'm about to say will not go down well! I haven't gone very far into the game, but I'm not really having much fun. Since this game was a contemporary of Drakan and mentioned on a Drakan forum, I thought this would be fun to play. But I'm already to...

I have a copy of Severance!

I finally managed to get a copy of this game!

I haven't done much yet. I'm somewhere in the first Zoe level, underground.

And how does the bow work? I can't seem to hit anything with it!

Do people still play this game multiplayer?
