Question about Black Isle Studios Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter for Windows

1 Answer

"cannot connect to gamesession"

Just trying to play a multiplayer on Icewind dale (pc). both pc's have the same copy and updates of the game, and ive tried everything i can think of to try to set up a multiplayer game via direct link and LAN. I have even downloaded a program recommended from a site called "Hamachi" which sets up a VPN. However, with everything i have tried i always receive the same error message " Cannot connect to game server" Even when i try to host a game on IPX setting. I have tried setting the IP on each computer to 192.168.*.* Yet again im met with the same message. Both pc's run windows xp pro 2002 service pack 2. i remember ages ago, it didnt take all this to set up and play multiplayer, so im really stuck as to whats changed.

I don't think the game allows online play with 2 same cd keys...
I'm not allowed to advise you to get another cd key from the net, because that is illegal.
I guess you will need another copy of the game to play multiplayer.

How do I play multiplayer offline?

hello! the problem you seem to be having might occur for various to help you, i will need some more info from you. The multiplayer is usually found with each game, for example, when u play sports resort, after selecting the game, if more than one controller is plugged in (is connected to the wii via wireless) the game asks you how many players would you want in the game. If this does not happen, one of your controllers might be malfunctioning or the game you are trying to play doesnt have offline multiplayer. Please specify which game you are trying to play.
Best regards,

My two girls have dsi,s how do the play with both ds,is on one game

hi there this should help ye out

Playing multiplayer with one Game Card:
Certain Nintendo DS games require only one player have a copy of the game to play multiplayer. Those without a copy of the game will need to download the game information from the player that has the game in their system.

This feature is available on games that have this icon on their packaging:
    To download game information:

  1. Insert the Game Card into the DS Game Card Slot on one system and slide it into place until it clicks. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  2. Tap the screen using the stylus when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. If the host DS system's Startup Mode is set to
    • Automatic. The game's menu will appear.
    • Manual. Tap on the box for the Nintendo DS Card Slot using the stylus to start the game.

  3. Turn on the other Nintendo DS systems. For each of these systems, when the main menu appears, tap on the "DS Download Play" icon on the right, middle side of the screen to display list of available games.

  4. Tap the title of the game to begin the download.

  5. See the individual game's multiplayer instructions for additional game play information.

  • Playing multiplayer with multiple Game Cards
    Games that require each player to have a copy of the Game Card inserted into the Nintendo DS will feature this icon:
    multi_pak.gif Because each individual game title has its own method for setting up multiplayer games, you will need to consult the instruction manual for that particular title.

No hardcopy of disc 2

you can try to contact BLIZZARD, and see if they will send you a replacement disc, but most likely they will not unless you can prove that you baught the game, and even then they will most likely tell you to take it back to the store where you got it.

Does Baldur's Gate II install on an intel mac running 10.5.7?

There's currently no reports of BG2 not working on the new updates of OSX

So it "should" work. Providing your mac is above the original system requirements the game suggests.

I'm pretty sure the only way to connect two PS3s together for multiplayer is to go online and play over the PlayStation Network. Of course, to do things that way, you'd have to have two copies of the games you're wanting to play--one disc for each console. Most games that are multiplayer can played that way on one console, though. You just need two controllers (or more, depending on the game and how many people you're wanting to have play).
