I've been looking everywhere for a good quality bomberman game that I can play with friends. The one I found, Mr Boom, is quite good. I've tested it over my home network, and it works fine. However, when I try to play with my friends over the internet using Tunngle, it lags terribly at the menu screen and then gives up, telling me that I have lost connection. I'm guessing it can't handle the lag, since it was meant for a local area network connection. Is there any way around this?
I've included a zip file for Mr Boom, with dosbox included. You can unzip it anywhere.
I've made conf files and shortcuts to try and make it user friendly. Note that I've made it so that it used port 1222 for ipxnet, since Tunngle blocks most of the ports underneath that.
So as you can probably guess, MRBOOMhostgame is for the host, MRBOOMjoingame is for anyone wanting to join. They'll need to specify an ip address and port 1222.
It'd be great to get this working . 8 player bomberman is awesome
