Hello everyone,

I'm having an issue with Game Ranger at the moment. I haven't played Stronghold 2 in quite a while but it did work some time ago. However since I reinstalled it and the game when I join a host there is no issue until the game is started.

It turns on my game but doesn't go past the main menu and doesn't take me into the host itself.

I'd like to note I'm using Windows 10, last time I played Stronghold 2 I was using Windows 7 so that maybe a part of the issue but the game itself runs fine. I can turn it on, play Kingmaker or any of the other modes other than multiplayer.

I found the same issue on the GameRanger board but no one had responded and it had been a while.

Help me Heavengames-community... You're my only hope.

Are you running a Steam version of SH2? IIRC I had the same multiplayer problem with the Steam version, so I ended up reinstalling the game from my old SH Collection disc. For some reason that worked.

Yeah I am using the Steam Version, however it did work on Windows 7 so I wouldn't think that is the issue but it could be.


I managed to get it to work, apparently it required to run Sh2 and GameRanger in compatibility mode w/ Windows XP SP3

I tried so many things and it ended up being that simple

Well, I guess I wouldn't remember to try running GameRanger in compatibility mode as well - at least not at first.

Nice to hear that there is a solution.
