Known problems

Operating system
- If you are using Microsoft Vista(TM) as an operating system, we recommend at least 2 GB of RAM because of the large RAM load

Multi-player game
- In a game with more than 4 participants over the Internet, there may be connection problems even in the lobby
- The 'NOD32 Antivirus Software' should definitely be deactivated during a network game. In general, virus scanners and firewalls may cause problems

Multi-player mode recommendations

If >The Guild 2< is played in a network with an activated firewall, the following ports used by >The Guild 2< must be cleared:

- (TCP/IP, UDP) 2801
- (TCP/IP, UDP) 2816
- (TCP/IP, UDP) 30180

If a game of >The Guild 2< is to be hosted on a computer which connects to the Internet through a router, the following optional(!) additional steps can be taken by experts(!):

- Enable Universal Plug and Play (UPNP) on the router
- Additionally required ports: (TCP/IP, UDP) 15666 (host/server port)
- Entering [HostIP=""] in the Config.ini defines the locally used IP-Interface and the port
