Multiplayer problems [SOLVED]
We're trying to play a game here, but akin to Civ 4's OOS error we get disconnected or can't even load the game. Is this something that anyone else has experienced? Troubleshooting network is a huge hassle and I'm trying to limit the options here.

Edit: Some people have solved this by turning off Hamachi (or any other VPN). For those of you who don't have Hamachi (and the following solved it for me) you can try turning off file and printer sharing.

For Win 7: Start menu - Control panel - Network and internet - Network and sharing center - Ine the left hand menu choose "Change adapter settings" and then remove adapters not in use.

Then in the same window right click your active internet connection (might have to click it twice) and go to the networking tab (perhaps the only tab). File and printer sharing should be number three on the list. Untick the box.
Then go back to the Network and internet window - Choose homegroup and sharing options - Click on Change advanced sharing settings - The second options should be Turn off file and printer sharing.

Edit 2: If the problem persists try reloading the next latest autosave. Seems like the latest save is somewhat corrupted, storing the wrong settings or something.

Good luck!

I can't even start a multiplayer game - it disconnects my friend as soon as he joins.

Try to shutdown hamachi, it worked for me and my friend =)
I updated the OP, hopefully this will work for others. And goddamnit, 2K Games should really fix this, they have known about this for quite some time.
