Hello, I am hoping I can be helped.

I have recently installed a Good Old Games version of Baldur's Gate: Tales of the Sword Coast. The problem I seem to be having is this: When I start or join a multiplayer game for Baldur's Gate on Gameranger, the game starts normally for all involved, but when I get to the character arbitration screen my name does not appear anywhere. My name does not appear in the player list for select player slots either. Yet the game tells the other players I have joined the game, but shortly afterwards it drops me, although I am still in the character arbitration screen.

I was hoping someone knows what the problem is and how to fix it.

I have the same version of the game as everyone else I'm trying to play with.
I have re-installed the game.
I have added the AsyncEnumeration=1 line into the Baldur.ini file.
I have made a new GameRanger profile.
I can play Multiplayer alone with no problems.
I have turned my firewall on and off, and added exceptions for Baldur's Gate and GameRanger.
I have tried port forwarding, but my ISP does not allow me to do so.
Finally, I have searched the internet for a solution, yet have found none.

Bump because I find it ridiculous how this issue has not been addressed and solved anywhere else, pretty frustrating since multiplayer was the whole reason I got the game in the first place.
I have the same problem as you, my friend and me have both the GOG Baldurs Version and we can't playing with Hamachi.

I've tried all that you do and still nothing :(
Have you tried to play in windows mode instead of full screen mode?
This might create some problems in multi-player sessions!

Yep, Ive tried windowed mode too. Strangely enough when my friend hosts he sees my name pop up in the char arbitration screen when I join but he does not see his own, and we cant communicate with each other via ingame chat. On my end I still see no names at all.
UPDATE: Figured out my problem, was selecting "baldurs gate" instead of Tales of the sword coast in gameranger. Works flawlessly now.
