@Prussian Havoc - I have passed your tip onto my Wife so she needn't suffer so much next time.

@Therrinian - that's correct, I'm going to test some of the other things (like does reliability of connection improve using Hamachi) and whatever I find, I'll post it to here. However, it is really important to rule-out the things that have not effect on your ability to play this game in multiplayer - most notably the error messages. You also need to understand that firewall rules or not, you *will* have issues and the take-home message there is restart both clients and try again, it works very well.

So far we have only attempted three games:

2 worked absolutely fine
1 launched and disconnected partway through

But previously (if you've read all of my struggles) I had one launch and then disconnect partway through and none fully work out of over fifty game attempts.

Work around seems to be working 2/2 so far no disconnects.
There was a firewall rule already in place to allow Battletech traffic but as you noticed it did not seem to be enough
