Vac protected and Internet adapters
Dungeon Defenders is Vac protected, right? Do other vac protected games have the same issue with Internet adapters? I don't play any other vac protected games, does anyone know?

I've never heard of such thing. I've been playing ganes that use VAC servers since 2007 and I never had a problem with them.
What do you even mean by "Internet adapters"?

Internet adapters for VirtualBox and the like. They cause a "Failed to create game" message when you try to create a game, public or private. It's a known issue with Dungeon Defenders.

Just out of curiosity, why would you run the game from a virtual machine, do they even render Direct3D games?

I'm not running the game in a virtual machine. The drivers for VirtualBox's Internet adapters mess with the game, so I always have to disable them before playing. Sorry if I wasn't clear on that.:gearthumbsup:

Oh, I see. It has been so long since I used a VM that I forgot that the VM needs to install its drivers on the host machine as well. But it's weird that it impacts on the host's connection, that shouldn't happen.
I use a VPN application that also installs virtual internet adapters (and drivers too), but it never really affected any VAC game I played. I can also disable these adapters at any time I want and only use actual physical adapters, can't you do the same?

I just disable them before starting the game and everything works fine. I was just curious if other games had the same quirk.
Other games, VAC enabled do not have this issue. I've played plenty of VAC games such as TF2, CS:Source, CS:GO, CS1.6, etc. with the VMWare network adapter enabled.
There was no issue in connecting to VAC secured servers/lobbies etc.

This issue I've only seen with DD. Possibly due to some engine(UnReal Engine 3) limitations. Dunno for sure though.
