    Why can i not create network games from one PC to another???

    It simply says "connection timed out" when I try to join a game.

    It's driving me crazy...

    I am using a router, but I tried a direct connection with a cross cable, and that didn't work.

    (I also opened all the necessary ports)

    Understood.......

    The router or firewall ports can be a real problem for Direct Connect

    I had the same issue and we tried everything to find out what was blocking it....Anti-Virus , Spy-ware protection....we never did find-out or get it working...well Online we did just passworded the game.

    Anyway we are now playing together Direct Connect only because my friend changed ISP provider.
