On the very first page when he gives the download link there is also a link for a patch. I think you just replace the exe file on the unzip folder and run it. That is what I did. so hopefully this version won't have the bugs I had. It might be an old patch, I just never used it or knew how to install it. I hope I have the most recent version now!

I have been up on the server playing again and I would love others to join me. I won't rob you and I ask you don't rob me.

Now, I have been so frustrated with the mining issue, having coal or gold and not being able to mine it and not knowing why. So I asked Jeremy and he said the digging and the mining has to be aadjacent to a tunnel tile. So even if there is dirt on either side of your goald you still can't  mine it until there is a tunnel next to it. Now, I did not know this and so this is for anyone else who didn't know it and thought it was a bug.

Not a bug, just clever!

Hi
I have the same question. how is the development of this game?
greetings and thanks.

Thanks and hope to hear about updates soon but still enjoying the game

I am hopeful like you all are about the updates and don't know anything, however, it is stil tons of fun to play, updates or not! I am logged in with some food, however, I'd like a cotton seed or something.

I know there aren't many folks on there but a couple log in and now when I try and log in I get a connecting to server message that just does not go away. I was connected for a long while then later I was getting "wrong protocol"  message. It is now connecting but nothing happens. Anyone else getting this?
It is sort of frustrating!
My chickens need fed, what if my livestock dies? Just kidding, but seriously I would like to be able to connect again and not sure what is up.

I didn't log in this month but I have a suggestion! If we could some how turn off the automatic start over each month it would be cool to just build cities and steam factories and have another plot and just build our own little worlds!
I get so far, maybe a few days into my next plot and then I have to start over so essentially doing tha same things over and over when I could have a coupld of different plots. I love this game. It is the best and my favorite of all of them, and Aprone is a brilliant creator! What a talent he shares with us.

HI, finally got my gamer account back up so wanted to give this a try.
I log in ok. it says i am connected but does nothing. i press esc and only option basically is single player game. I go thru and select my perks and such then i am on a plot of land. Problem is when i do anything it does not register. I can send 2 people to be collecting grass and it does not show anyone under tasks and after 30 seconds, one minute, 2 minutes, nada. it still shows both workers not available and still nothing is listed under tasks. did I miss something?

when i press control grave is it supposed to bring an online list of available items i can buy? if so i get nothing there also.

thanks Aprone for all you do. Hope you and your family is doing well. TC

hey all, I just stumbled on this thread. Not sure if anyone's looking at it. But I thought I'd ask, a couple questions.
1. is the game still running and working?
2. How does the patch thing work? Do I replace the exe file of the zip with the patch?
3. Is there a certain day I should start playing? I've gone through several of the posts, obviously not all 260, but several and people talking about different plots and different days.
4. I noticed that castaways 1, also has multiplayer. Is anyone on that one as well?
5. I'm looking on the thread and seeing a lot of connection issues. has that been solved, or being worked on?
6. If I run in to the same problem, how should I fix it?
I'm sorry if these questions were already asked and answered. As I said, I didn't read all 260 posts. Thanks!!!
P.s Aprone, if you are reading this, I didn't see castaways2 on your main page. Just a fyi. I can download it off the first post you posted regarding the game, provided that link is still working.

hey guys, it's me again.
For anyone looking at this thread, I think I figured out most of the questions I asked on my previous post.
Only now, my question is, is there like a walk through or something for this game?
I connected to the server, and it was like way way way different from castaways 1, where you're given some people and you can make them do things.
I was kind of expecting that, but I guess not?
Anyways, just curious if there are any walk throughs.

@SilverMoon: I've only just started playing this too. There's two sources of information that I know of. The first I found was the readme. That's got a general getting started bit of advice in there. It doesn't go too far though. The second I've found is in the main menu, there's an About the game section, that has lots of little topics with information inside. It's a bit like a Civilopedia for Castaways 2.

Hope this helps!

Anyone having trouble connecting to Castaways 2?
It says I am connecting but lags out.
