Hello, I've been having multiplayer issues as well with Panthers In The Fog. My friend purchased the game specifically to play with me and we just gave up on it and I talked him into playing Last Stand Arnhem instead, which we are having much more success with. Basically we were getting constant disconnects after the battle-group screen, at the beginning of the mission setup phase. Sometimes it'd just say the other guy disconnected, other times it'd give some bland crash report. We also experienced mid-battle crashes and disconnects, but I think you should focus on the other crashes/disconnects first.
Basically, one guy would either be stuck at some loading or receiving message, and the host would have a disconnect message. We both really agree, that PITF needs to have a direct connect option without first using the lobby.
Yes we both had the newest update, both using default options, yes we were doing a scenario/campaign (tried multiple ones). I've bought all the CC remakes and multiple copies of most of them and will continue to do so, I'm just disappointed that I talked him into purchasing the game to play with me and we can't even play together without hassle. I doubt he'll want to continue trying PiTF, but I have 2 PCs and can do my own testing between my PCs. Of course watch me not have the same problem.
Is there a debug mode? or some type of crash report file, log, anything? That will help you better debug this problem?
