Me and my Dad, after much hair-pulling, managed to play C&C3 around summer this year, both of us had Windows 10 computers.
Jump forward to now, when we've both had time to go online again, and we cannot get any of the games to work. We've tried ZH and C&C3 – the only difference, he's upgraded to Win 11, and I've moved house and got a new rig with Win 11 installed.
So we've both got the ultimate collection on Origin, and carefully followed the instructions to patch and load games. We're able to log in into and see the servers of both games, send chat messages, create/join games, but when launching we always get connection errors. (ZH – "Unable to connect to other player(s)")
We're both tried removing firewall and adding exceptions to it, only using windows antivirus, running in admin and compat modes. Just doesn't seem to be a clear reason it isn't working – other than it being a Windows 11 issue.
Does anyone have any experience with this issue?
