Unable to connect two iPads in BG:EE - keeps chrashing

HansHans Member Posts: 3
We bought a copy of BG:EE, and downloaded it for my kids iPads. We created a multiplayergame, but when the other iPad tries to join, the joining iPads chrashes to desktop.
Any clue whats wrong.
BTW we're using up-to-date iPad2's - and running BG:EE v1,3

    There are a couple of things you could try.

    1. Waiting at character arbitration and having the client join before the save is loaded on the host.
    2. Trying with and without a password. n.b. if it works without a password you'll probably need to go back into the arbitration screen and turn off listen to join requests so nobody else joins. Or go into the advanced settings and try connecting over tcpip which would avoid the Beamdog matchmaker part.

    There are two BG:EE issues raised for multiplayer on iPad (#9596 and #10389) so it may be the case that you can't get multiplayer to work on iPad until these are resolved.

    Thanks for the answer, unfortunately it didn't solve our troubles.

    I'll try to find those numbers you are referring to.

    Kind regards

    The numbers are internal trackers, I put them here so we can track back if required but you won't have access to them.

    Sorry to hear you are no further forward.

    Could the reason be us playing with the same Apple ID and the system not allowing that?
