I tried to play with GameRanger and Hamachi with one friend, but we can't manage to play together.

We both have windows 10, we installed the Visual C++ 2015, and put the 2 dll file in the folder.

The game works very well in single player.

But when we try to connect each other with Game Ranger, the game launches but we can't join a game, with TCP/IP the IP adress is always uncorrect, and with Direct Connect the game crashes. Both our firewall are desctivated.

Do you know if there is a solution to this problem ? Do you experiences it as well ?

Thanks in advance.

I've had luck using Hamachi and TCP/IP multiplayer game. You need to ensure you use the Hamachi IP address of whoever is hosting.
Thanks for your answer.

We tried with Hamachi, with the Hamachi IP adress like 25.XX.XXX.XXX.

But its not working, we can ping each other (with both our firewall desactivated). But when we try in the game (Network, TCP/IP) we always have the same error :
Error in IP Adress, please try again.

I can't find where is the problem...

The error message comes from a failed call to the inet_addr function, which translates the input IP address from a string to a valid internal IP representation.

Sorry, not much more I can add. The 25.xx.xxx.xxx IP format for Hamachi works fine for me in Windows 10. Not sure why inet_addr would fail for you.

Hi this is also a request for a reposting of the filedropper files if possible. I use autohotkey to help with my keyboard to be able to play Heroes 2 but dosbox seems to throw fits if I use autohotkey on the Dos Heroes 2, while the windows Heroes 2 only will run in windowed mode.

Thanks

Awesome, thank you so much!
Hitting F4 toggled it to fullscreen, at first the mouse cursor didn't display even with a restart, but then setting it to run as admin and in compatibility mode for Windows 7 (running windows 10) and the cursor popped up. It works perfect!
Is it any possible way to save this game and load it afterwards in multiplayer?
I have the windows version and playing multiplayer thru gameranger.
I can find only the "save game" option during the game, but dunno how to load it when we want to continue the game another day.

Thanks for any ideas.

I don't know about gameranger, but back in the day you'd do it simply by selecting Load from the main menu, then Multiplayer.
