Hey everyone I need some help. i'm trying to play SWB II with my little brother via LAN connection. We have the IP addresses matching and have the right crossover lan cable but still no luck. What are we supposed to do? Thanks for help in advance!
I am playing EAW with the 1.05 patch (not Forces of Corruption) on Windows XP SP3. I've played the single player for a while, now I'd like to try out some of the custom maps I have downloaded. I was hoping I would get to play against the computer AI on these maps, like in the single player campaign. I go to start a LAN game, I select a map (in this case, a 2 player map). For the second player, I select Computer AI. But the "Start Game" button is always greyed (grayed?) out. I have checked all the network settings and read all the faqs. I have the windows firewall disabled, and my router not only supports upnp, but I've also port forwarded the EAW ports (both tcp and udp) to my system. Can I not play a multiplayer game with just the computer and only 1 human? Am I trying to do something that's impossible or is there some problem with my setup?
