Wagic multi player? Or other good multi player besides MTGO?

Postby Schwanke » Sun Oct 10, 2010 9:30 pm

Anyone know if you can do multi player Wagic or is it strictly play against the machine?

Lookin for ways to play Magic with my wife but we have several major problems:

1) We currently live in two different countries lol. Australia and USA.
2) We're broke :D
3) Her internet is wierd and we have never been able to get multiplayer games that require an IP to IP connection to work right. We think her ADSL router is doing some firewalling but their tech support wont confirm or deny thats the problem. :P

We signed up for mtgo but of course you have to buy your cards there and personally I dont see a point in paying for digital cards except for it being a wotc scheme to make more money lol. We're gunna play with the default cards for a while and see how that goes. Maybe break down and buy some special cards or build decks or something if we get really bored of the defaults. All this requires money and see #2.

With the internet games like the ones that annoy wotc violating their monopoly on mtgo games we would have to find one that somehow works with our ISP issues between us. For our solutions we have been using GameRanger which does the network handling for you. We've played the various Age of Empires no problem, could probably play anything on their list but I didnt recognize any mtg or even pokemon style games on their list even though they have hundreds. Maybe if I suggest one they might add it.

So my question after all that drabble is does wagic possibly fit this? Can we play each other or only the computer? They seemed to find a legit way to get past wotc by not including the art but of course im sure there is someway to install the art.

Any other suggestions on a multiplayer mtg or even pokemon, since im sure some people on here play both, that might fit our bill?

Thanks!

Sorry, Wagic is only against the Computer right now.

You could try using Online PlayTable
http://www.onlineplaytable.com/

http://www.slightlymagic.net/wiki/Onlin ... able_-_OPT

What is Online PlayTable?

Online PlayTable is clearly the most sophisticated program for Online Card Gaming to date, and it is still in development. Just look at the feature list and you will be convinced:
Full Magic: The Gathering support up to Zendikar
Support of HQ card pictures
Multiplayer duels with up to 6 players
Draft Games with up to 8 players including custom Cubes and full pictures
Team-Multiplayer duels (2HG, Emperor)
Full support for Momir Basic
Sealed Deck Generator
100% stability (no random disconnects)
Replay function
Automatic dice roll and simultaneous mulligans
and much more.


Just like most Magic programs you will have to download the card images. You can use the ones from Magic Workstation in OPT.

I believe magicworkstation.com is also a good and cheap choice.

Workstation is pretty good. It has a bigger community but hasn't really been worked on for a long time. It also costs money. OPT is aiming to fill the void as a replacement to MTGO for people who aren't rich :P Once it advances a little further they will probably have their own official, public server.

An alternative to Magic Workstation, what is neat about it,
that you can have multiple Game Engines installed, and easily switch between them.

The game and set file links need to be updated, as they were brought up to v2.0 as of yesterday. Card sets run up through SoM now.

Only just downloading it. No idea how it works, but the interface is clean and pretty straightforward. Looking forward to building a deck or two and trying out against someone other than my roommate. :p

Is there anyway to get octgn to enforce rules? Or is it totally open control? My wife has no experience and I only have basic experience in running a game. I run it with my mom in real life but its easier when your physically holding cards instead of trying to guess and find interface entries to figure out how to do something you just do in real life.

Unless there is a way to enforce rules like MTGO does this probably isnt for us for atleast another year lol. :D

There aren't many magic programs with rules enforcement. It's not multiplayer but you can either play Forge (http://mtgrares.blogspot.com/)
or Wagic the Homebrew (http://wololo.net/wagic/download/) for rules enforcement.

Hi guys. Good info and links.
I haven't and don't intend to have a Forum Rule which disallows mentioning other competitor software (like MWS and WotC forums does). Feel free to share your experience over the Rule Enforced and Free Played multiplayers for Magic. I am also interested in developing such for MTG Studio but the Cease & Desist letters of Wizards have always kept my intentions just in the area of Alpha testing and not-releasing mine rule enforcing engine.

Thank you keeping the good tone and non-advertisement containing replies.
