It works for some people, but mostly the directplay helper error destroys the gameplay. Unfortunately.

Just use Hamachi? Download once and ready to play.

Just a sec while I check the channelname etc...

EDIT: first post up on the thread of 'Multiplayer'. Any of you want a match? Lemme know ;)
Remember when being a Wrath Reaper was badass? Those were the days. . .

Well we were discussing this as a simplified alternative to hamachi, partly because everything has its pros and cons

GameRanger didn't work for me.

See Here:
http://forums.wiredforwar.org/index.php?topic=5285.0

At first we tried with VictimOfTheSystem hosting - didn't work. I'm pretty sure he hadn't opened port UDP 16000 on his router yet, though, but he said that apparently was not nessecary all the time.

Then we tried with me hosting (I have far more control on my network, so I could and did open UDP 16000), and GameRanger would not work with me hosting either!

After a long time, I had the idea to set up my router to DMZ my computer (all previous port forwarding is deactivated and everything goes to that one computer), and I hosted a game again, which also did not work either, despite this being what I had to do for a different game which did work when this went on (Age of Empires II with my half brother, who like VictimOfTheSystem, isn't allowed to change anything on his network - my half-brother didn't have open any ports or anything to me, just enter his game and enter in my IP).

The strange thing was that we tried this exact solution and it didn't work for this game - VictimOfTheSystem opened up Machines and tried to connect to me, but he couldn't despite this being the be all end all solution, if this didn't work then pretty much nothing is left to try.

Contact me and we will set up a game. It seems that only I can make it work, so God bless me ;)
