I've got 2 pc's (windows xp) connected with networkcable (ethernet cards). Each has a fixed ip (10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.3). Pinging, the 2 machines 'see' eachother. And games like Knights&Merchants, where you can choose the TCP/IP protocol, work great. But AoM (Titan expansion) only gives 2 possibilities (Internet and Lan/direct IP). Internet obviously doesn't work, and using the Lan/direct IP choice, I can create a game on one, but the other doesn't see it. Not even when i tell it to connect to the other IP. It just times out. Why? And what can I do to get the game going? Thx for your help.
Solved the problem. All I needed to do was updating the game. Works great now :D
