@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.

My game client is now booting up as in offline as well. I am running it through the gog galaxy client. How do i get online, I don't see any button to click other than switch account or update profile (which changes the emblem and colors)? If I say to swotch accounts it asks if I want to log off, how am I logged in if it says I am offline.

I suggest turning in a bug report in the BATTLETECH Bug Report subforum. I don’t recall experiencing the situation you describe and I’ve never used go. Sorry about that. :bow:

Good luck and good gaming... eventually!

I had the same issue, when I logged into anther machine, using Steam and then switched back to my main nachine, game client (steam) was offline, but in BT I was still listed as online, and was confused why I’m still online. I guess that is related to being a paradox account not related to the game client.
What worked for me was switch accounts (log off) and login with the paradox account again

hopefully it helps

Yeah that worked for me as well. I'm guessing I got that error because I hadn't played the game for a couple of years.

I have two PCs here with two different steam accounts, both owning battletech. I have not been able to play a single multiplayer match so far.
Fiddling with ports/firewall made no difference.

The only chance to play multiplayer is having Paradox fix the bugs in the network code.
But they won't do it. So in conclusion, there is no way to play battletech in multiplayer. What a shame.

What is even more annoying is, that I am 100% sure that we, the community - given the chance - would be able to fix it in no time.
