Multiplayer Issues

1. If you have activated your Personal Firewall (which is coming with SP2 on Windows XP) or other firewall software, you might encounter connection problems when starting in multiplayer mode for the first time. Your firewall software might block the game when connecting to other game servers or might block other players to connect to the server you've just created.

Therefore when running the game in multiplayer mode for the first time, be sure you allow the game to use the connection it needs by unblocking it from the firewall settings. Pay attention that in case your game is running in full screen, you will not be able to see the dialog box which the "Personal Firewall" is popping up right after entering in multiplayer sessions list, so you need to use the Alt+Tab keys to switch to this dialog box.

2. During multiplayer, even if the Silent Hunter III version 1.0 is compatible with the Silent Hunter III version 1.1, we highly recommend to play the game with the same server version.
