It was never my intention to tell you what you should do with your

However, as for the networking problem and your capacity to troubleshoot
specifically, I recall explaining in some thread what was wrong with
your early 3.2 private servers solution (I had to fix the same issues in
our 3.1.20 hack). However, instead of a rather simple fix you preferred
to do much more work and returned to unreriable P2P mode. Seriously, I
know next to nothing about programming and networking, but I somehow
managed to get my private server hack working properly with but a simple
modification, while at the same time whoever maintains that part decided
to code a lot only to arrive with new bugs and problems. That alone is
enough reason for me to stick to my modified 3.1.20 rather than update
to 3.2. I figured out that when I need something, I'm better off doing
it myself than waiting for someone probably better qualified to fix my
issue for me, at least as long as it's something I can actually do on my

Years ago, I started using VASSAL because it was the closest thing to
what I needed that was available at the time. Still, I'm using it for

with the project.
