Hey everyone, I've been having some issues with multiplayer and I'm sure there's something simple that I'm missing. The biggest issues are CTDs that happen namely when:

1. A player throws anything - a rock, a grenade, etc.
2. A player tries to equip a gas mask

We've also had a few map issues where when we try and play on a specific sector, it hangs at the insertion map and doesn't let anyone place their mercs.

The first way we tried installing was just the current 1.13 release one-click install. Then we tried the 1.13 release, plus the update.

When both of those failed to solve the issue, we tried the SVN route, but we get hung up at this part of the installation: https://81.169.133.124/source/ja2_v1.13_data/GameDir

That URL just times out.

Is there any advice you can give us? We're really dying to get this set up and working properly! Thanks in advance!!

Well for starters, I was able to successfully throw a stun grenade the first time I tried, and it worked like a charm. Unfortunately successive times, including just dropping an item on the ground, have resulted in CTDs - so it IS possible to throw a 'nade. We just haven't been able to since. I also remember seeing some patch notes that stated the throw bug was fixed at some point, which leads me to believe we've installed the game incorrectly (one of the reasons why I'm posting here).

As to why use a gasmask? Well, it's simple - when my friends fire mustard gas rounds at me, I want to be able to protect myself, and vice-versa. Since the gas masks have caused CTDs, we've been forced to agree not to use tear/mustard gas on each other.

Basically, the more tactical options, the better. When my friend fortifies a building, the natural instinct is to hurl something unpleasant in it to force him to fall back, or alternatively kill/injure his mercs.

Oh that's fantastic! Do you plan to fix it in an upcoming patch?
