Put all your MP game discussions right here.
If you're having difficulties with GameRanger you should contact GameRanger support. I use the program myself and have never had problems with it.

Every time I try with gameranger tho, doesn't work. if someone else hosts, I get about 5 seconds of black screen then CTD. If I host, the other player gets a CTD. I've tried both with hamachi and with the vpn disabled. what am I doing wrong?
I have to disconnect my router when I use GR. Try connecting directly from modem to the computer.
No but GameRanger is a bitch to deal with when Players cannot connect to their games because they don't support Gamersgate or SteamScott Kevill wrote:As I replied to your other post, you couldn't be more wrong.probyte wrote:GameRanger is just a meeting Point it does not help if you are behind a router It comes not with virtual network bridge like hamachi.
This is still a building site for BG, for multiplayer you need a virtual network bridge.
GameRanger is somthing like Allseeingeye, Gamespy etc. but I can not see any network bridging virtual adapter which is the only way to play Supreme Ruler behind a Router.
Hamachi works but it is painful because of the limitation of the rooms.
GameRanger performs its magic without needing a virtual adapter. ASE, GameSpy, etc. do not even come close.
