Hi,

I played Bolo back in the day, great to see it still around.

Being somewhat dim, I can't seem to get an AI opponent running. I can't start a LAN server due to winblows 8, so it says.

Speak slowly and use small words... Wink

Ok,

So here's how I got it to work:

In Windows, open a command prompt
START > RUN
Type: CMD

When the box opens you will need to navigate to your program files and winbolo folder.

If you're unfamiliar with command stuff, you'll probably need to type this, hit enter after each line to activate the command:

cd /
cd Program Files
cd winbolo

from there I use this script to start the LAN server:

winbolods.exe -inbuilt -port 27500 -gametype open -ai yes -mines yes -delay -limit -tracker

This will give you an open game running on your server that is not listed on a tracker. Section 3.3 on this document gives you the list of options to change like maps, trackers, etc.

http://www.winbolo.com/downloads/manual.pdf

From there you can open Winbolo and click LOCAL NETWORK

Then click the Refresh button

Your computer IP Address should show up on the list. It might take a few minutes

When it appears, highlight it and click JOIN

Then double click on your Winbolo icon again to open another session and repeat the process. This time on those games select a Brain to run around and play against you.

I hope this helps, I was actually trying this out myself this past weekend and came across your help post in the process.

Good luck!

Sprctre,

Thanks! I got it up and running. Only brain I could find is Ryan2 and it is deeply retarded. I was hoping to practice a bit before trying a real game.

Still a fun game, Bolo. My other time waster is down so I'll play some more.
