Joining a multi game loaded game on a different pc
« on: January 01, 2015, 01:45:22 AM »
I'm trying to join a loaded multiplayer game I started on my laptop, but now want to play on my pc, but it just tells me that the game is allready in progress. Is there some UUID file somewhere I need to copy over ?

Iirc you need to:

1) On the computer running your save, press escape
2) click Manage Players
3) Open the slot you want to be able to join
4) Click Apply
5) On the computer you want to join from, make sure you're using a profile with the same name as the player name in the open slot (if the slot hasn't had a player in it previously and just shows ???, then your profile name can be whatever)
6) Join the game


At least, I think that will let you do what you're asking :)  If you're trying to transfer host then you'll need to save, stop the game, and restart it on the machine you want to host.
