Hi,

I am trying to play cross platform multiplayer with a friend and need direct connect to be able to play but it keeps failing when I try to activate it. Same issue for my friend who has the game on steam.

Hey, there was a problem recently with NAT Punchthrough servers for Steam and GOG which was described just like this. I'd say email supportbg3@larian.com about it, but give it another shot tomorrow. It may not be the same so email anyway, if nothing but to alert support about it being worth checking again.

Same here last Sunday. Me and two friends couldn't directly connect anymore the way we'd always connect for the last two years. We finally had to setup an ad hoc VPN to play via LAN. All in all, it cost us an hour before we could play. If it really was Larians fault – not cool, not cool at all.

Strangely, even direct IP connection did not work, although I opened the TCP ports 23243-23262 to the hosting PC in my router and disabled the PCs Firewall. Alas, DOS2 doesn't give any usable error messages except for "connection failed" on the joining side. Or is there a log or something with more explicit output?
