Default Anybody play SE4 multiplayer still?

I'm just a novice SE4 player and I've never played against human opponents. Do people here play against each other?
What's the best way to get into an internet game?

Thanks

Well that used to be PBW, but since the demise of the Original PBW, your only real recourse is a PBEM game.

You bet ya! You really need to visit spaceempires.net as it has a lot more being only for Space Empires, III IV & V. It has a range of forums including one for PBW which being dead is replaced by PBEM which means play be email.
I'm running one game using my Skywalker Mod, and if enough people get together someone could start another game, although I have 3 AI's in my game which could be taken over by human players. I think we are only up to turn 2401.1 so early days.
Have a look in those forums, and post a message perhaps. If you want to know anything else just ask...

I'm not really sure that site is going to make it; seems to be repeating all the mistakes of PBW1 that made it so hard to maintain.

Xrati, that site is DEAD in regards to SE 4 games!!!! Whilst SE 5 works, SE 4 games can NOT be played!!!! I have said this before elsewhere. After 2 weeks of messaging and asking why the games fowled up, eg start a game and 6 turns get run in a couple of hours with not a SINGLE upload, I gave up! So did the other game owner who tried and got the same results.
If you want to play SE 4 multiplayer, the ONLY way at the moment is via PBEM which is simple enough.

Damn! I posted an edit, but it didn't take! I just hate repeating myself :-( Skirmisher (I said), you should check out spaceempires.net . If you want to join my game, there are 2 races still available, Amonkrie and Raiders (which are Piundon). Email me for more info if you like at a_roberts@activ8.net.au
