I set up multiplayer Hexen using the same network. Compy hosts, Lappy joins. Compy works fine. Person in Lappy cannot move or shoot or do anything. Lappy hosts, Compy joins. Compy cannot move or shoot or do anything. It could be the networking or is it a bug in vavoom? If it is not a bug could anyone tell me how to fix that? Compy is windows 2000 and Lappy is windows XP. Compy is connected to wireless hub which is then connected to modem which is then connected to phone jack. Lappy uses the wireless signal from the hub. Must be the firewall. I also had the flashing items and monsters just like the certain someone said. At the second level when I go to the first portal to guardian of ice, or maybe well into the game, I get an error that says that there is a segmentation violation. How do I or you fix that?

I believe networking fixes are the next major item on Janis' to do list.

thanks. Finally someone who is willing to make hexen work. Unlike some other ports, skulltag, cough cough that tweak up doom and not work on hexen when it is almost not even completely done. Why don't they just scrap the idea and stick with doom and not start working on hexen at all? Jeeze

I think Skulltag got Hexen support only because it's based on ZDoom.

The flashing monsters and items is still irritating me. How do I or you fix that. Zdoom is pretty good but I want a game that can do multiplayer over internet where I can join an existing server and also the Zdoom I have does not have multiplayer and Vavoom is the close to heretic hexen multiplayer I can get. After you fix or tell me how to fix the bug with the flashing items and monsters.

If you haven't already, you must build VIS data usung glVIS utility, this should reduce flashing. Otherwise it's Vavoom's internal network limitations and currently there's nothing you can do right now.

Probably this bug is not applicable anymore since networking has been changed significantly. But anyways after fixing some problems everything should work now.
