"Player sent bad command", game frozen

I was playing my first 3v4 (humans vs. AI) game with wargus, and about halfway through the game, it locked up for everyone. We were able to click things, and access the menus, but the gameplay stopped. Every several seconds, the message box would say "Ben sent bad command" (Ben is one of the 3 human...

Re: Wargus: How to play online

I was very much hoping to play this game with family over Christmas break. Does any one know how to get multiplayer running? I can see that a lot of time went into making this game, it would be a shame if it is dead at this point.

Re: Wargus: How to play online

Oh, I see. I just tried that but it still closes itself after about 1sec. It seems like adding "-p " + anything causes it to close almost immediately after opening.

I uninstalled and re-installed but still no luck.

I tried "-e" which opens it to the editor submenu. That worked.

Any other ideas?

Re: Wargus: How to play online

I just tried "wargus.exe -p 4242 > stderr.txt" but the stderr.txt remains blank after the game closes itself. Is there a way to have it log everything it does so I can see what the crash is? Sorry, I have a bit of programming knowledge but not much.

Re: Wargus: How to play online

Thanks for the assistance Yukiko. Unfortunately it still closes immediately. Here's a video of what happens: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8sYrqeJPlQ&feature=youtu.be I know people have put years of work into this software, so I'm hoping that at this point it's not dead, and that someone can help...

Re: Wargus: How to play online

I really appreciate the help. When I launch with what's in the attached image, the application starts and some yellow text flashes quickly at the bottom (I think it's loading assets), and then it immediately crashes. Any ideas? Also... I was only doing this as a test for trying to play on a LAN or o...

Re: Wargus: How to play online

Thanks! Can you (or anyone else) be specific about how to do that? Where do I put "-p", and should I specify a port? What would that look like typed out?

Re: Wargus: How to play online

I've simplified it down to trying to run two instances of the game on one machine, and hosting in one instance and connecting to local host on the other. Still no dice.

Re: Wargus: How to play online

I've made a slight bit of progress. I'm using two machines on my local network to test things out. I'm using their local IP addresses to connect (i.e. 192.168.10.100 & 192.168.10.101). When either machine hosts, it can see the second machine trying to join ("machine2 Preparing"), but the second mach...

Wargus: How to play online

I'm totally new to Stratagus, having just discovered it. I've downloaded Wargus but I can't seem to figure out how to play online with a friend. Can we use the "metaserver" to supply each other's IP addresses and ports? I've searched for documentation on this but haven't been able to find anything. ...
