Please rephrase the question in English, so I can understand it. But seriously, I have no idea what you are asking.



If I die today, I'm happy how my life turned out

The question is:

The POD's are with the normal upgrades in the multiplayer mode, so the pods not have the same power, speed and turning when I play with pods fully upgraded from singleplayer mode. Question...

There some way for I use the fullyupgraded pods in the multiplayer mode?

Thank's very mutch.

to play on lan MULTIPLAYER without ipx/spx protocol (windows 7 32/64 bits), download "ipxwrapper": www.solemnwarning.net/ipxwrapper
installation:
1) Copy archives ipxwrapper to game directory
2) Run registry compatible key (directplay-win64 or directplay-win32)
3) Then run "ipxconfig.exe" and select network card

It works windows 7 32/64bits

Hooouu dude,

I can't believe that a single person can make happy a thousand of people in the world with this answer.

However, I've probed this wrapper and work so so, because I found a problem.

The problem is about the browsing LAN sessions.

**PHYSIC SIDE**

I've two physics machines, both with Windows 7 Professional 64bits.

In both machines I've configured the IPXWrapper correctly selecting only the principal network adapter.


PC 1 Win7 64Bits Server IPXWrapper




PC 2 Win7 64Bits Client IPXWrapper




So, into the game and when I select the Multiplayer Menu, the game recognize the emulated protocol and now it can join now, also the second PC can join to this Multiplayer Menu too.




This message don't appear now with the IPXWrapper.




Physic Server Side Multiplayer Menu




Physic Client Side Multiplayer Menu



But if I Host a game the other PC Client don't see the followed hosted session.


Physic Win7 64bits Server Hosting






Physic Win7 64bits Client Joining





**VIRTUAL SIDE**

So, I've investigated a little more and I've installed VMWare 8 with Windows 2000 Pro and Windows XP Pro.
In this point the games are configured without the IPXWrapper by obvious reasons.
After of installing the NWLink/IPX/SPX protocol in Win2k and WinXP the game work fine in the multipayer menu section.


Virtual Win2k IPX Configured




I don't have touched anything into the IPX protocol of Win2k or WinXP O.S.'s, simply I've installed it in both.
Also I've disabled Firewall Windows and Antivirus Firewall in both PC's.
I've full conectivity between VM Win2k and VM WinXP machines.
And I've full conectivity between Host PC and VM Machines.

Virtual WinXP IPX Configured




The 3D environment don't work in VMWare machines because the 3D virtual video card seems don't be compatible with SW Pod Racer, but the researching in this case is about the multiplayer conection, not the playing.
Finally, in both VMware machines I can join in the Multiplayer Menu without problems too.
So, in Win2k virtual machine I've hosted a session and in the other hand with WinXP I've searched the previous created session.


Virtual Win2k Server Hosting






The result: SW Pod Racer work perfectly in this part, so the IPX Wrapper can't emulate correctly the IPX protocol frame.
The Host PC can't see the current session hosted by the Virtual Win2k machine and viceversa.


Virtual WinXP Client Joining








I don't know what part specifically in the frame is the problem, but I think that I've discovered something that can help in the future to fix this problem.

This time it was too close dude, too close.

Views of the VMWare machines


Virtual Win2k Server




Virtual WinXP Client



I hope that one day SW Pod Racer can be played in LAN in all home's in the world.

Sadly, Cataflexia.
