  1. "What version of Project Reality is this? " A joke ?
  2. The pre-requirement for installing the updates is to have the original BMS 4.33 U1 SETUP FOLDER (which you have) available (never delete this). This is the one with the blue coloured setup.exe The folder is not your actual game folder that you use to start BMS itself. It is the folder wherever you downloaded and extracted the main BMS 4.33 U1 base installer. Download all the updates (2,3,4 and 5) into a folder then run each one. It will ask you where the SETUP FOLDER is. Running the updates (1 at a time) MODIFYS the base setup file. When all 4 updates have been run then the blue setup file can be run to update you bms installation with the updates of your choice. Some of the updates are only officially available as torrent downloads. Simple and safe process actually though people have uploaded them to cloud storage if you look. The above is largely copy/paste from various sources.
  3. Welcome Steve and do not delay trying out multiplayer you can do no harm. At least not on the VG public server where personally I would rather take time out to assist a nube than fly another KTO mission so help is available from the off if you require it. I was not aware of an "all in one update" but I have been lazy reading on the forums. U5 (update 5) is the latest version I believe. Did you ever see the 2 official videos ?

    Does anybody understand this ? I sure do not. So can you or can you not ? The router displays only a single ip to the net/world and falcon online multiplayer needs a unique ip per connection (I thought all game servers did) so how can 2 or more players using the same router join the server ? My world is turned upside down. Anyone confirmed 2 or more players on bms server through 1 router ? Would be useful to view 2D map on my 2nd pc whilst in 3D on 1st. Qualified IT guys please explain. I think maybe I misread original question. Never was intention to meet together online at vg server ?

    Never heard of That Kav but if you say so. Not in this country.

    You can`t both connect to the VG bms server or any other server on the net when using the same external ip which is what you seem to be saying. In previous falcon it was a simple matter to play together on a LAN connection offline. Not sure bms is quite as friendly with that option. Maybe I misunderstand. Anyway there is no benefit to you connecting online for a 1 v 1 game.
  7. BMS Re Start Notification

  8. BMS Re Start Notification

    Always seem to post in the nearest main screen topic (Hijack) so from now will be here and maybe I can remember where I left it next time Campaign restarted day 1.
  9. Newbie

    Good variety :-) I used to have a passion for prop sims but everyone ran rings round me :-D
  10. Newbie

    Someone ( =VG= Kavalenko ) finally mentioned flight sims which was referred to in the OP. I would be interested Vertigo to hear a little detail of the flight sim center you run. What sim/sims are they ?
  11. BMS Re Start Notification

    Air bases down and a mass of red forces in Seoul so restart day 1.
  12. BMS Re Start Notification

    By request...... Day 1 :-)
  13. BMS Re Start Notification

    No sign of any issues. Working fine.
  14. BMS Re Start Notification

    Day 1. Lets try harder
  15. Milky Way

    Well as long as you dont feel you have to be a `pro` to use it and the learning process might be faster if you can ask/get answers whilst in the sim. Cya when we cya
  16. Milky Way

    Have not seen you on the server yet Milky Way, or at least not under that name. Let us know what your pilot name is if different and will look out for you
  17. BMS Re Start Notification

    Took a vote with regulars and now Day 1 (was very quiet at day 16)
  18. Need help, PC died.

    All what Semler said. Something as simple as a connected usb device can stop normal boot with (in my own experience) no visual errors.
  19. BMS Re Start Notification

    Seoul captured. Re started
  20. BMS Re Start Notification

    Day 1 re start.
  21. The bms information page needs some update on this setting but already the server is set to 1500 minimum. Whilst this is the minimum it is also requested that it is THE setting used. Players who still have the 2048 set should have no problem connecting but perceived wisdom is that all players should have same BW setting regardless if their upload ability could support higher. This lower number should allow more people to meet minimum. If you know players that may not see this please pass this change to them.
  22. Hello everyone...

    Welcome and so what games/sims currently interest you ? I think the subject of Discord has been brought up before. Maybe it could dilute the `normal` meeting place of the VG TS channels. I use discord and it has its place but if using a VG game server TS has to be king perhaps. Not my say
  23. All being well I should get to incorporate Update 5 (multi play crash fixes) later this evening and restart to Day 1 by 0600 zulu 17-3-18 latest. Thanks to SemlerPDX for allowing this in his absence. He might have to fix it if i break something.
  24. BMS server update during next 12 Hrs

    Up and running now.
