Me and my friend are trying to play HOMM6 online together but one of us gets kicked back to windows every time we start a game. This is what happens:
One of us starts a game and the other joins, we get it started and everything goes well. Both are in the game and both are standing with their heros on the map. After about 20 seconds the player who joined the lobby gets game crash and the host wins.
We get a runtime error message from microsoft visual C++ runtime library which says "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information."
I have the deluxe version of the game and my friend has a normal version. This seems to mean we have a different version of the game (we get this message when joining the lobby). Could this be the cause? Both games claim to be up to date.
I'm running on Windows Vista and he's on Windows 7
My version of the game: 1.2.1
His version of the game: 1.1.31785
