Looking for the final word probably isnt possible, but how about the lastest word? what works and what doesnt?
From all the threads out there, I gather solo play is not a problem. After that theres seems to be several different things said out there basically saying direct connection is a no go but its possible through gamespy.
My friend loaded up CC5 on his vista laptop and we were actually able to play one battle via direct. After that it hasnt worked. Unlike some folks who cant get a tcp/udp multiplayer screen to show, he gets one regularly but there is no completed connecton.
Vista seems to have issues with gamespy. That has been completely unsuccessful. he can navigate but cant see other people in the rooms and also cant be seen.
SO NOW....anyone got any good info that can help?
