Cant enter the game on pc


First here are the minimum requirements needed to run it:
  • Windows XP
  • Pentium III 800 or AMD Athlon 700 MHz processor or faster
  • 256 MB of RAM
  • 1.1 GB free Hard Disk space
  • 8X CD-ROM drive or faster
  • 32 MB DirectX 8.1 compatible 3D Video Card (64 MB recommended)
  • DirectX 8.1 compatible Sound Card
  • DirectX 8.1 or higher
  • 56 Kbps or better Internet connection or LAN multiplayer


My guess is you are trying to run it on vista or windows 7 though and since this game came out in 2001 it's a pretty old game and if you are trying to run it on Vista and Windows 7 you will encounter problems. Download a copy of Dosbox or Virtualbox and use it to run your games. They work very well for older games..

The free hidden and dangerous (1) gives errormessage: 'failed to host session' and 'failed to initialize network connection' when trying to start a coop LAN-game. When trying to start a coop LAN-game in...


Since windows 7 you cant Host a game anymore! The only chance to host and play Hidden & Dangerous Deluxe under Windows 7 is to install VMWare Player and then install WinXP on it (VERY EASY AND FAST, you need a WinXP CD or a ISO file). Then you have to activate Direct3D under the settings of VMWare and it installs automatically VMWare Tools. After this you can install H&D Deluxe on the VM and play the game in full resolution and full speed (fps) without any error!

This helps if you have problems with hosting a game under Win7 with these errors:

Hosten einer Sitzung fehlgeschlagen
failed to initialize network connection

Can i play the cricket 07 on the LAN


Steps:
1. Both you and your friend must download Hamachi. www.hamachi.cc
2. Once done downloading, run the set-up and get in a connection with each other.
3. One person open up Cricket and make an LAN game with yourself.
4. Other person open up the server window and attempt to add a new IP. The IP you enter is the one of your friend which you can find off of Hamachi. It should look like 5.xx.xx.xx.
5. When added, a new game should be in your favorites/whatever tab where IPs are added and then click to join the game.
I've done this... But not with Cricket '07. Counter-Strike 1.6 =D. It's uber fun especially with AMXX mod and a bunch of fun plugins. Hope this works for you.

Hi. i have fsx and accelleration and when i try to connect to people i cant. do people i want to connect to also have to have sp2 or accelleration?


It is always advisable for everyone to have the accelleration pack installed. You need to have a broadboand connection for connecting to other people, and set the right server up for Microsoft to give you the connection.

It says :"you have been disconnected from online servers"


There can be particular issues related
to playing through a router or firewall,
including sharing your internet
connection via another PC. In order to
join or host a Conflict: Global Storm
game from behind a firewall you must
open the following ports (inbound and
outbound):

UDP ports 4658, 6500, 10010,
13139, 27900

TCP ports 4658, 6667, 28910,
29900, 29901, 29920

To host a game from behind a router
with NAT (Network Address
Translation), or a firewall, you will
need to enable ‘port forwarding’ on
the following ports to route data to the
IP address of your PC;

UDP ports 4658, 6500

TCP port 4658

If you continue to have problems
connecting to servers or creating
them, try bypassing your router or
firewall by connecting your PC directly
to your broadband connection.

Do not use ALT+TAB and do not enter Windows when multiplayer is running. It will kill the connection to GameSpy servers which are needed for connecting to any internet server.

If the game uses serial codes to install or use the game, you need to have purchased 2 copies. Then you can either connect them with your (i'm assuming is a lan) cable. OR Download hamachi (you should use version 1.0.1.5) and create a network. Hamachi is a program that creates a virtual lan cable. You can download it here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_hamachi/2114/
