There are 3 multi-ship solutions available that a host can run, however they're not very popular and I haven't run one here for quite a while.

You have the original one called The Killing Floor by Dale Pope.

Another was created by Kenneth Strom called Tactical VCR 2 which was a little better than TKF.

Each of these required modifications to be done by the host when the game was setup and for the player to each have a plugin they used on their side as well.

Most recently a new multi-ship combat solution was created by Stefan Reuther called FLAK which is for PHost, not Tim's VGAP. PHost is similar to Tim's game but different and in may ways more advanced.We run PHost games here as well and ran a test game for FLAK a year or so ago. Stefan is also the Author of PHOST and the PCC player client that can be used with Tim's VGA Planets as well PHost.

havoc I cannot seem to get FLAK working with pcc2 or host...

I am running 64 bit win 7, PHOST and WINPLAN works fine but I know Kenneth Strom called Tactical VCR 2 does not work under 64 bit.. How about The killing floor or FLAK?

how do I config FLAK? can you tell me or point me to setup steps..

I would really appreciate it

Mills,

Those mod's are only going to work in conjunction with a game being hosted with them. There are currently no games here with any of those addons.

As far as 64 bit goes. FLAK will probably work but TKF is the oldest of the 3 and is not going to.

Go here http://phost.de/~stefan/flak/
And follow the flak-user-doc.txt to set it up for your own game.
You can also copy the pconfig.src from the T-FLak game if that will help you.

Not sure if this will work on 64bit. I suggest you use a 32bit VM or DosBox as most of the hosting tools run in 16bit
