how do i use magic dosbox to create an ipx server/client configuration?
or at least how do I make it connect via emulated modem to a second android phone?
Ive seen the options in the game profile I created but I dont understand them.
I am playing heroes of might and magic which uses these two multiplayer connection options. This is not the only game that needs this so if anyone knows how to do this or can redirect me to the right sources that would be great.
Thanks.16. May 2018 at 5:42 #5968
Look at this
Link above sets all in expert settings, but you can do all in magic dosbox game profile – you pick server or client, dont forget enable it.
It is easy. I think port must be on android 2000 and higher, less value is reserved for system. You must be connected to LAN, then you create server on first device, start game and check your ipadress in advanced settings (from general settings inside game). That ipadress you set on second device
This creates tunnel between two devices, but you must set yet the ipx in the game – server and client16. May 2018 at 6:11 #5969
Ok, so basically I cant use my wifi as a kind of medium (ie: no emulated ethernet connection via wifi)… I assume there is no real way to connect to my lan network without some kind of miniUSB to ethernet adapter for my phone.
Well, thank you very much! You have been a great help… Now I just need to find the right adapter.16. May 2018 at 6:15 #5970
IPX in dosbox is independent, does not matter how you connect your device in LAN16. May 2018 at 6:19 #5971
I understand, I was just hoping for some kind of way to make dosbox think I am connected to a LAN network but simply be connected to a second phone with something like wifiDirect. It sure would simplify multiplayer experiences.16. May 2018 at 6:29 #5972
Hm, I think I don’t understand…setup in magic dosbox is easy, but you still must set which device is server and which devices are clients. This is necessary setup which game needs, game needs to know what is server and what is client, else it cannot work.17. May 2018 at 21:51 #5988
Yes, I agree that the ipx setup in dosbox is easy. Now that you explained it I understand how to do it… but the problem is that for me to use the ipx network I still need a physical network connection to an ethernet or whatever. I dont have ethernet on my phone so I cant use the ipx settings. This is why I wish I had some kind of emulated ethernet that uses wifidirect to connect my two phones. If you know of any way to make wifi direct work as an ethernet network connection then that would solve my problem… and be awesome. The server and client settings wont help me if I dont have an ethernet… unless im confused?? Will the ipx work through the internet (or wifi)??
