So, me and a friend of mine wanted to try Empire at war and Forces of corruption for the computer. There seems to be a few bugs and things not working properly with windows 7, but the main game itself seems to work fine, the problem is the LAN. When we both go into LAN, we cannot see each other in the lobby or each others games. I have tried googling for this and found fixes for making the game run which all of them I tried, but did not solve our problem. Someone mentioned in one of the threads that on his XP machines, they could see each other fine, but they could not see the Windows 7 machine in the lobby. Right now I have the game running in xp sp3 for it to be able to actually launch, and my friend is running XP SP3. I have tried all of the ram patches and mp lobby updates and what not and nothing seems to be working. We can play LAN together with every other game except this one. Does anyone have any ideas what else it could be or possible solutions, or am I better off dual booting or installing xp in a virtual machine?
