Anyone else having issues with joining a game lobby? I am using Wine 2.12+Win7 settings.

When I try joining a game lobby I am stuck in the joining screen (... "press ESC if you don't join after 15 seconds"). I can perfectly refresh and see the list of games.

Any hints appreciated.

Got to have it working! My problem was: 'No games matching those parameters' in the lobby. I found the solution here:

and here

It's working now!

I can play single player against the computer but can't play on multiplayer mode. I basically can't see anybody on the multiplayer lobby... I can create a game and am the only player playing in that game. Anybody has had the same problem and know how to fix this? I'd really like to play agains other human players!

Does anyone have the issue where multiplayer works but every other game? I'll get into a game and then it Steam Crashes, but it only happens every other game

Hi, although AOE II HD launches fine and i can play multiplayer. I am having a latency issue where every game i play i usually end up having the turtle icon next to my score or having 200 more ping that people playing with me on the same room (he plays with windows). Has anyone had this problem and/or knows how to solve it?

Thx in advance
