Me and a friend of mine have been using your multiplayer function a bunch of times now, and the results are even better than the plain LAN games, even if in the same room. You have my honest compliments for that.

What really grinds my gears though is that the connection to the server falters. Keeping the problem to myself for now - I know for sure that my laptop is more then able to carry this, either as host or join, and my router is perfectly capable with these things. E.G.: I can play Fortnite and League of Legends with smooth ping whatsoever; I can even play Fortnite on my PS4 and download stuff with high priority with μTorrent on my pc simultaneously. Somewhere between my pc and your server something goes amiss.

I've noticed a bunch of players are not even getting response from the support/development team when they open a similar topic, so I hope this topic can be a haven for all those who seek the same solution(s) as I do right now.

Sometimes I can see other players in the lobby, join them, play with them etc. It's all fine. But if I close the game, restart it (without Direct Connect) and check the lobby, it's completely empty again. This is literally a matter of mere minutes. If I restart it again, these people reappear. It's twisting my nuts because I can't find any clues or whereabouts to track down why this goes how it goes.

I haven't found any firm guidelines to the use of your network/server yet. Everything I know so far is pure experience. I'd like to know if I need to do anything special to utilize this SWR.net option. Can you guys make a list of things one has to do in order to make use of this service without any problems? This can vary to settings in Shockwave, in the network adapter or some other configuration setup. Run it completely through. First setup, then certain settings, disable some bothersome programs which might interfere etc. The bigger the list you can come up with, the more people you'll help out.

Here's hoping you guys care enough about the loyal players in your community.

Note: I will not use any third-party programs because that'd be absolutely redundant.
