I would have joined, but it's probably better you're not online now, since my old PC with EOC on it is running on my little 17' monitor. (I plan to use it as a standalone dedicated MP server soon)

I just set up my new XP-Machine yesterday and haven't got EOC installed on it yet.

btw, Tarcoon, I'm thinking of settin up a seperate User account on XP specially for EOC because of the "." and "," issue on the Mainland European version of XP. Did you try that when you were having issues with MP?

Good idea - but I have no problems with the "." and "," settings for EoC. I leave these settings all the time.
(Hhm - and have/had some trouble while booting... ?)

The MP-problems may be caused in my mods folder handling.
I rename the folder depending on the game I want to play.
The folders are called xxx-mods and yyy-mods and so on and I activate a folder per deleting the xxx- from its name. The game is able to handle this, but I'm not sure if it works with MP.
The game crashed back to desktop everytime I've tried to start a server.

I thought about creating more maindirectories - maybe a better solution to switch between different settings.

MP only needs the folder EpicOnlb in your main directory. MP will run even if you don't have the cargo handling mods in your current mods folder (you just can't select trade cargo or return trades to your SP game if they aren't activated). Switching names on the mods folder has no effect, I use that method too.
Must be something else?

I've tried that on Win98 and ME. I could install to another directory, but couldn't patch that install. The Patch installer said it's already patched. Might work on XP though ?

What about patching the maindirectory and simple copy it a few times , rename them after installing the different mods and switch between them?

By the way, I'm not able to host a server anymore - the game crashes all the time.
It's a good reason to reinstall the game and try that copy-stuff.

Having a seperate user for EoC may be useful too.
