Hamachi is a program that makes fake LAN/network connections over the internet. It's quite a simple-use program, which is both for PC and Os X. The os X version (you want to look for HamachiX, or you'll get stuck in technicalities that can give you aches and troubles for the rest of the year) can be quite hard to find, but a little persistence will find it soon enough.
I dunno if there's a Linux version though.

Friends of mine have used Hamachi to play GTA2 together over the internet. Sweet stuff.

Huh. But how would it work? Both people controlling Turner?

Also, awesome. If I remember right, you can download GTA2 for free on Rockstar's site. LET'S GET TOGETHER AND BLOW UP SOME CARS!

Got you, so it makes a link to another pc on the internet look like it's on the LAN. Seems pretty cool. I used to play GTA2 with my friend over my LAN. Good times...

Yesh, that's exactly what it does.

But actually yes, I am also stumped at what this guy means by playing Lugaru multiplayer-wise... Lugaru has no multiplayer o.o
Unless there's someone out there clever enough to make a real clever mod...

Hamachi is cool, but it can't magically add multiplayer to a game that does not already have multiplayer...

It's not possible to mod multiplayer into a game like Lugaru.
But have no fear, we can (most likley) play multiplayer in Overgrowth when that comes out.

It's not impossible to hack multiplayer into Lugaru.

What would be necessary is mapping actions from client X onto AI-controlled character M. So there would be an external program involved that tampers with the memory (drops AI input for M, takes MP input from X, that continuously).

That's very hard to pull off though. Like, VERY hard. Analyzing the memory is hard. Timing the input replacement is hard. Writing good networking code is hard.

But it is possible. The question only is who's up for it.

Exactly!

No. In the time of Lugaru, Wolfire was David working on his own, and the fanbase was absolutely tiny, especially compared to now. David had no obligations and the support he did get was limited, so it's not a surprise that the game didn't get fully completed.
I'm not saying that I know why it wasn't completed, but I do know that whatever reason that was, it's not going to work on Overgrowth.

Overgrowth now has a fanbase way larger, the entirety of it giving loud-mouthed support. David's got a whole team working hard on the project, and they're practically already getting some from it by means of the pre-orders.
If nothing else, it is extremely evident that OG is being taken much more seriously.
The only reason I could imagine could chop off OG's development is Wolfire being bought out by some larger company or something, as happened to Oni, on which Lugaru was ironically inspired.
Realising the history David already has had with these larger companies, I have full trust that this has negligible chances of happening anyway.

I'd gladly pay for OG a second time if I have to for it, but OG will be completed!

it would take a danm lot of hacking and skills too add mp too lugaru xD.. i used too hack parts out of a game called jka (jedi knight acadamy) because the clean mp source codes sucked and they dident include some things the sp did. there were sp source codes too but dident include the juicy stuff either. Man think of the possibilites we would have if there were source codes released for lugaru

However, let us cry together brothers, for this will never happen. As most everyone knows by now, the source code was lost in a harddrive crash. :cry:
