Thanks! Let me know how it works for you.Very interesting read. Someone has been rewarded for the time invested. Shall try this weekend. Kudos!
This might be a little more difficult to solve. I did some quick tests and it appears that this problem can show up when multiple NATs are involved. I'm behind router and without any port forwarding rules applied, I can connect to AT's server just fine without disconnecting after 30 seconds. But, if I try the same thing from the VMware virtual machine which is behind another NAT, I can connect but get kicked after 30 seconds unless I set port forwarding in VMware networking settings for Drakan's client port 27910. Really odd, port forwarding is usually required only for hosting/running the server.UCyborg, thank you for your work. I never realized the cut FOV when playing with widescreen was a bug... The game certainly looks different now
And I can now confirm the patch worked perfectly well, as I could join AT's server with or without Hamachi.
The only pesky bug that remains - and that you might be able to consult me on - is the 30-sec disconnect caused by the closed ports. No, that can't be fixed on my part, and I don't have a firewall - it's just that I'm behind NAT, so I can only play Drakan from home via Hamachi, unless I change my ISP.
But the thing is, Drakan is the only game where I actually experienced such connection problems. Is there any possible fix to it, what do you think?
