Just got TAD, master serg now but wnat to play fp.

When I launch fanpatch, it all gives me CRC mismatches for games. Then when i switch back to ES 1.01, they all work. Why is this? It can'[t be that no fanpatch users are online right...

Fan patch games can be difficult to come by at your skill level. You'll begin to see a lot more of them once 2nd/1st lieutenant or higher.

Yep, I'll be on on occupation, but no one at our rank really uses it.

If you are reading this, I'm just wasting your time.

If I am correct, I believe valckarie is Lieutenant Colonel on Nilla. So yeah, just get your rank a little higher.

So how come I can't even see them? Shouldn't I be able to see some CRC Mistmatches on normal 1.01?

Opening your eyes helps.

Otherwise, if you can't see them, none are being hosted.

u SEE crc-mismatches in 1.01a. Maybe u don't have the warchiefs expansion combined with TAD. Most of the games allow warchiefs -civs.

And the real pros never do games that have WC -civs disabled.

Pretty much ALL people in FP use TWC + TAD combination. So if u don't have twc, u can't see any CRC-mismatches when playing normally on 1.01a.

I am master sergeant as well.
I use ES patch more than fan patch but only because it is damned hard getting a game.
I will add you to friends list though and keep an eye out for you and other master sergeants like I always do.

Time of day usually is key too. Early in the afternoon, it's mostly kiddies getting out of school and coming home to log in and play. Later in the evening, people start coming home from work and logging on. This is on the assumption that the higher ranks are typically more mature ppl who have jobs and/or go to college. By midnight most of these have retired and then it's prime time for the west-coast Americans and the Asian kids to get online.

So if you're logging on at 20:00 GMT you will see mostly USA school age kiddoes starting to log on, but if you wait until 00:00 GMT or even 01:00 you will start to see a large influx of East Coast Americans logging on as they come home from work. The quality of your opponents will start to rise at midnight GMT and continue to go up as the Americans go to sleep and the Asian/Australians start to log in.

The percentage of Fan Patch games should climb with the increased traffic of mature skill players.

Actually, we're not legislative. If you have questions or comments about the application of the CoC, each mod has a public email.
