I believe the problem is that something is blocking acces to the port 7171, which is required to access the game.
All that the homepage says is required is --
For the Windows Version you need:
DirectX version 5.0 or later
15 MB free space on your hard disk
A connection to the internet via Windows Sockets
Now, we are allowed to download anything to the C drive, we run on Windows XP, and I dl'ed DirectX 9. So, I guess the problem is my internet connection.
Does anyone know how/if I can/could unblock the access to that 7171 port?
Any suggestions? Im willing to try anything.
