Hey guys.

First of all I'd like to thank you for a superb mod.
This is the most fun I've had in ages.
Though I've come up with a huge problem.
I'm having a lan atm and we are trying to play this mod over lan.
I can see the other guys in the network by just typing there IP for example \\192.168.0.1
But I can't see any servers while in the mod. And they can't see me.
The other 2 guys are on Xp os's . And I'm on Vista.
I was wondering if there is any known compatability issues between Vista and Xp on this mod.
The other 2 guys are currently playing the game over lan. But I can't join them.
I've tried with console commands like " Open 192.168.0.1 " it finds the server but just times out.
Any nifty solution to this problem ?

Cheers.

Does it work with the normal Ut3 gametypes ?
The networking issues are unfortunately out of our hands, that's all part of ut3 :(

Ah ok , that's too bad :/ :P Tried changing the metric value for the Hamachi connection to 10 instead of 1000 etc. But it doesn't work at all.
That's how we solved the Rainbow Six Vegas 2 lan issues. So I thought it would be the same for Ut 3 / The haunted since it has the same engine.
But in the regular Lan menu I can't see their servers nor internet servers (perhaps cause there is so little internet servers up ) and I can't see them in the lan lobby of UT 3 either. So I guess I'll just have to wait for a patch or something :P
Anyways thx for trying to helping me :)

Is your firewall off?
Sometimes your antivirus overrides the firewall and you will have to disable it too.
Make sure each computer has the firewall turned off also

have you changed the maxchildconnections? in the .ini? there's a couple of them, im guessing that could be part of the problem
