An active DW multiplayer community in 2016!

Do you play Dangerous Waters? Do you want to meet others who also play Dangerous Waters?

Create an account (optional) and join this discord server! CLOSED: we have a new discord server, see page 4 of this thread for more info!
Currently we have about 3 regular members. The most common mod used is Reinforce Alert v1.40. Please ask if you need help installing the mod.

My current goal is to guarantee a game every weekend. Join and say hi anytime! Someone may want to play.

Only rule: Don't be a jerk.

I would like to join! But, you need to look into giving the "share" link either a longer expire time or an infinite expire time.

rentacow 09-04-2016 01:13 PM

I thought it was permanent, sorry about that!

Edit: The permanent link is the same, it really ought to work. Try this one instead: CLOSED

FPSchazly 09-04-2016 03:47 PM

My apologies, I was not logged into Discord in my web browser, which seems to have been the issue. I am now in!

rentacow 09-04-2016 09:49 PM

Glad to hear it Charlie, welcome aboard. To be honest I thought Discord would give you a temporary username as I tried to set it up so that making an account is not mandatory. I will look into it...

New message traffic received!
Meeting time to play will be on Saturday September 10th at 4:00 PM eastern time (21:00 CET). You can see a countdown clock here

To join the game server you will need to download and install Tunngle.
Download Tunngle here.
After installing Tunngle some further setup will be required to connect successfully. Please join the Discord server and ask if you need help. (see below)

Reinforce Alert v1.40
will be used. Found here:

Mission will be decided before we play!

Meeting place for voice and text chat will be the Discord server, found at this link: CLOSED

Be sure to show up early for a test mission if you want to make sure everything is working smoothly.

I hope to see you there! :subsim:

FPSchazly 09-08-2016 10:27 PM

I shall try and make it! My Tunngle wasn't working the other day, though, and not sure why... :doh: I shall have to look into it.

For Tunngle with Windows 8 there are a few things you can do to help your chances of it working properly:

Disable non-essential network interfaces by right-clicking on the start button and going to Network Connections. You can right-click on each one and select "Disable".

After that, press the "Alt" key and you will see some options appear at the top. Click "Advanced" and then "Advanced Settings..."

Make sure Tunngle is at the top using the green up and down arrows.

Almost done! Now open dangerouswaters.ini in notepad and scroll down. Look near the bottom for .AdapterName "Tunngle"

Windows 10 note: adapters.txt may see Tunngle as something else (ie Ethernet 4). Bottom line is it has to see the adapter with the Tunngle IP address, they start with 7.

>> Make sure to restart Tunngle so you don't break anything :haha: <<

Keep Tunngle running and connected to the Dangerous Waters lobby when you start the game initially
To check what adapder DW is using, host a game yourself and check near the bottom in the chat box at the game lobby.

User @diegotiger from the discord server:

Tunngle renames the adapter when installed
that's where some people get confused
In windows 10, the adapter can be renamed like the other windows but the adapter directly isn't changed in name so like a nickname
So it appears as Tunngle there but windows reads it as Ethernet 6 for me and for other is may be ethernet 3 or 5 depending on how many adapters are considered local and the sorts
I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the automatic adapter priority that windows 10 has compared to the older OSs

^^ Big Image. What you should not see.

Once everything is matched up, you should be able to play.
We'll see you out there! :yeah: :arrgh!: :salute:

FPSchazly 09-09-2016 07:28 AM

Running Windows 7 and already had a look at all that! I'll keep you posted.

rentacow 09-12-2016 03:09 PM

We had a great turnout on Saturday the 10th. Thank you everyone who showed up! Unfortunately due to some technical issues we were not able to start until about 2 hours after the scheduled time and even then had some technical issues.

I have decided to rent a VPS through and will be testing out the ability to host a game with that, for next time. A VPS should allow players to connect without having to use Tunngle, not to mention the high speed, high throughput internet connection! Stay tuned!

Once again, I will be making another post later this week when I have an idea if hosting via a VPS is going to be possible. Expect the game to be about the same time as before.

FPSchazly 09-13-2016 04:59 PM

I would recommend people to show up earlier if you can in order to test their configuration. I was the one that had a lot (all) to do with the two hour delay last week :haha: but I now have a fix for my issue that could potentially help others out.

rentacow 09-17-2016 01:13 AM

I will be around this Saturday most of the day to help people test configurations and hopefully play a few games. Stop on by and say hello!

After contacting technical support (Props to them. Really fast response and definitely knew their stuff!) it seems like a huge pain in the butt and more expensive than I had anticipated to host Dangerous Waters over a VPS. I will have to consider other options. The good news is that with proper port forwarding, and considering the risks of having open ports, almost anyone can host without having to use a VLAN client.

OK See you there!

I'm a bit curious. I haven't played a simulator online in any form since Longbow 2 in late 1999 or so. I think DW would make for a fun multiplayer experience. Not sure if RA will work. My old laptop is a bit wonky. I'm on LwAmi 3.11 for now.

rentacow 09-17-2016 12:44 PM

Only one way to find out. Drop by the discord and we can test it out.

bottomcrawler 09-18-2016 02:47 PM

I'll have to attempt to install RA first. Since getting LwAmi installed took a lot of time and effort (got so many errors it's not funny), RA will probably be worse, squared!
