I have a Macbook Pro, and my internet connection is a 3 Connect dongle. I have recently purchased the Generals Deluxe edition.
However, I have been unable to play it online after several attempts.
I can get on GameRanger and talk to people in the chatroom, and set up the game and everything (whether I'm hosting or not) as my ping and CPU are very strong, however, during the loading screen, no one else loads except me, every time, and then the game starts, and freezes (on my screen). I have to turn the computer off and on again afterwards.
I force quit all other apps except 3 Connect, Finder and GameRanger, and it still didn't work. I'm guessing this is because for some reason I have trouble connecting to other players because of the dongle or because of some unknown of firewall that operates on a mac outside of my limited knowledge.
Any helpful advice in regards to getting dongle connections working, or at least, any explanation as to why it doesn't work would be very much appreciated.
