The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

From the cmd prompt, using windows XP, type the following:
Two bits of info are important, the Default Gateway IP address, and the IP address. The Default Gateway is the IP address for your DSL modem, cable modem, etc. The IP address is not your "real" IP, but your NAT that resides behind the "gateway" to the Internet, your modem.
They should look like this:
NAT IP address 192.168.x.x
Default Gateway 192.168.x.x
OK, when you say cmd prompt, do you mean start/run then type ipconfig? if so, all that happens is a small ms dos black screen pops up for half a second and disappears. No info able to be retrieved. What exactly do you mean cmd prompt? I use windows XP
Refer to Step 3, all of the port ranges are listed there. In addition, if you have a dynamic IP from your ISP and it changes, use www.showmyip.com, this will list your public or WAN IP that you can use for direct connections with other players.Sid Meier said:for your instructions for port forwarding my router uses a Trigger port then the type (TCP/UDP) then the range then the type and then enable or not. What are the triggar ports?
Sorry, I didn't answer these earlier, been real busy as of late.De Montbray said:Urgh, I know next to nothing about Computers and the internet, why by god does this game have to be so difficult in that regard?
I'm confused about the step involving configuring routers.... how would one contact one's ISP? is there a method of finding one's password/username some other way?
The problem with a shared connection is just that, its shared. When you buy your DSL or Cable Modem service they give you only a single IP, your router/cable modem/DSL Modem gives you the plethora of NAT IPs behind the firewall. Each machine behind the router can gain access to the Internet, sharing the connection. The reason two PCs behind your modem can not play in the same game is because when the data packets come over the Internet to your modem, the modem can only forward those packets to a single NAT and can't differentiate which NAT should get them, if they are both trying to play in the same game. Hope that helps.Gormigust said:Hi there!
I know you said it's not possible o play on a shared cpnnection, but as you only mentioned it briefly, I thought there might be a little chance left
So : is there any chance? We have 2 players on a shared connection and 1-2 players on seperate IP connections. Is it possible to play if one of the non-shared PCs hosts the game? Or via Valkyrienet maybe?
Thanks for your answer(s).
