Jutland Multiplayer

Post by Saddletank » Sun Aug 29, 2021 7:40 pm

Years ago, long before Stormpowered was a thing, SES had a different forum and a bunch of us played some awesome MP games in that community. I know we used Hamachi to create a virtual LAN and that worked. However I have forgotten what we did and how we did it. There's a group of us over at the International Kriegsspiel Society want to try some Jutland MP again. Two of us both got Hamachi installed, we can create a network and see each others PCs but we cannot connect via the Jutland in-game MP start game/join game system, after using the IP addresses the Hamachi VPN gives us.

Can anyone help with this please?

Hi Saddletank!

Windows 10 completely disables all LAN capability with Direct Play so unfortunately Hamachi will no longer work.

What you will need to do is set up the multiplayer game and then have the other player(s) right click on Jutland in their My Games list, select "Look for an online game of Jutland" and join the game from there.

I hope this helps!

I'm pretty sure that doesn't work. We tried directly looking and connecting to games back when Jutland was released so that would be WinXP I guess. It was simply impossible without Hamachi.

And there are online YT videos and tech pages showing how to connect to other peer games using Hamachi in Win10 so a bit puzzled about this advice.

For example:
