-WORK IN PROGRESS- Working internet games in vanilla I76!

Drop this DLL in your game folder and ensure port 21157 is forwarded to all clients playing the game. Only one router per IP address is supported currently, but I plan to fix this. Also, only vanilla I76 is guaranteed to work. Gold -may- work, but I make no promises!

To play: Enter the host's external IP address in the "join game/internet" screen. Remember: only ONE client per router! Anything else screws things up royally, until I get that fixed.

Enjoy!

Hey I'm seeing a few views on this, anyone care to post whether this worked for them or not? I'm always interested in hearing feedback, positive or negative.

Anyone not registered interested in seeing my post please follow the instructions on "...READ ME..." board.

Thanks!

Once the "final" release is done, the unregistered will have access to the DLL and instructions in question.

Anyone reading, just wanted to let you know that an updated version has been released and is ready for download (consider this a BETA). Lightfoot, this is the version I sent you a while back :)
