What is the most reliable multiplayer option for Majesty Gold Edition HD?
For the past couple of days, I've been searching around different forums trying to find a reliable multiplayer solution for Majesty Gold HD, since both me and a friend picked it up on Steam when it came out.
There's lots of threads with Hamachi server listings and people talking about connecting via gamespy, but the only thing I've gotten to work was Tunngle - and even that only works about 1/3 of the time. We tried Hamachi and couldn't get that to work (despite setting the appropriate adapter priority), we then tried Gameranger, but noticed it didn't recognize the HD edition - so that was out, we then tried Gamespy Comrade (the free version), but couldn't even figure out how to join one another's game, and then we finally got it working on Tunngle.
Is there a general consensus on what multiplayer option works most reliably that I should give another chance? Tunngle is OK for now, but it's far from an optimal solution.
Edit: Just to give more detail, we're both running 64-bit Win 7, and have disabled the windows firewall as well as any antivirus programs which might have been gunking up the connection. We've also forwarded the appropriate Tunngle port, but haven't opened any others because we've found no documentation for Majesty or Hamachi ports that needed to be opened.

Multiplayer was not changed between Majesty Gold and Majesty Gold HD. People have used Hamachi VPN in the past. We have also asked Gameranger to add support for Majesty Gold HD.
A player noted on another forum that to play on Gameranger, he renamed the executable from "MajestyHD.exe" to "Majesty.exe", pointed Gameranger to the renamed file, and it worked for him.
Majesty 2 multitplayer no more available.
I try to play majesty 2 this morning and it say me : "internet multiplayer is not longer available for majesty 2"
Majesty 2 is the only rts with indirect gameplay , its a very good and rich game, uncommon and fun.
And many of players still buy it , and give you MONEY for play the small campaigns AND MULTIPLAYER.
So PUT THE SERVERS ON , and make a better multiplayer version now, its really a shame that we can't play on internet with friends. If its not done i will post on all forum that majesty and paradox games are unefficient on multiplayers , and i will say to everybody that its really a shame for your society.
