    Summary:
    Multiplayer has been added to Medieval Engineers! You will now be able to play together with your friends and either cooperate on constructing medieval castles or entire cities that you will have to defend from barbarian raids, or form groups and fight against each other. The initial multiplayer version supports all the features that are currently in the game, in both Creative and Survival modes. It is based on our current multiplayer from Space Engineers and it is not the new multiplayer layer - based on Raknet - that we have been working on lately (we still need more time to work on this new version).

    Note:
    the number of AI bots that can be in a multiplayer world is limited per server. New AI bots will spawn in the world only after the dead bots despawn (it will require approx. 30 secs for a dead bot to despawn).

    We have also enabled the option to host multiplayer games on dedicated servers so you can have a more fluid multiplayer experience.
    For more details about the multiplayer and the next steps in the game’s development, read Marek’s latest blog post: http://blog.marekrosa.org/2015/05/medieval-engineers-multiplayer_5.html



    Features:
    - multiplayer mode
    - dedicated server support (dedicated server can be found at: \Steam\steamapps\common\MedievalEngineers\DedicatedServer or DedicatedServer64)
    - dedicated server configuration dialog was improved to be more user friendly (added several new features to maintain config files)
    - added blocking ability to all tools (default: RMB)
    - increased peasant health for better AI survivability
    - added switching your nametag visible/hidden to "O" key
    - new sounds: ambient sounds in the background, tool collisions, impacts

    Fixes:
    - fixed wrong collisions on wooden inverted roof
    - fixed crash when you used manipulation tool on item connected by rope
    - fixed crash when you switched model to deer while a holding tool

    EDIT 05/06/2015: Update 02.015.018
    - fixed crash on clients with projectiles while dead
    - fixed crash in havok
    - fixed crash with mechanical blocks
    - fixed servers not showing in servers tab
    - fixed startup crash at havokWrapper.dll

    Read the post... it isn't. It's the same as current Space Engineers MP.

    Yay, now people can get online and join servers and do nothing together.

    Really Keen you let the whiners get to you so you tack on SE's rushed Multiplayer? You do realise there's now going to be a slew of complaints on how crappy MP is performing.

    Keen really should have added more features before pushing (even pushing SE's) multiplayer on this game, Yeah playing online together is nice and all, but when there's not actually all that much to do yet, it makes it redundant.

    "Exception occured: System.BadImageFormatException: Could not load file or assembly 'HavokWrapper.dll' or one of its dependencies. is not a valid Win32 application. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800700C1)
    File name: 'HavokWrapper.dll' "

    So could someone tell me if the catch blocks work or not, because that was the only thing I was really worried about. This is of course if the multiplayer works.

    im super excited, and will be more so when the server browser works, for now its not showing dedicated servers in the server list, but you can still connect if you know the ip via the steam server browser

    Tbh, I have no issues with the current SE multiplayer. Course I have a virtually unlaggable computer.

    For some reason, since today, the game will not start now. The update broke the game (SE still works fine though)

    Did any of the bug fixes correct the graphic processor issue preventing many folks from running the game? I'd like to return to streaming. :) A good portion of my corporate office is hoping Multiplayer works out so we can enjoy blasting things to bits between clients, heh. Unfortunately our office computers all run Intel processors...

    Have you made a bug report with your issue + logs please? if not, do that in the bug report section of the forums. Thanks a lot for your help!
    if that "graphical issue" is PC that does not support DX11, than sorry - Medieval Engineers have DX 11 in its min. requirments.
