Connection failed when tryin to play Links 2003 on Gameranger

Post by Sandy_Trapp »

For the last two weeks, I have not been able to play LInks on Gameranger.
First we use Teamspeak. I lose connection on Teamspeak, then get booted out of the game.
The last week, when the host starts the game, I get "connection" failed. It creates a log txt tile which I sent to "accounts@Gameranger.com" Haven't heard back from them. I have change nothing and can't use a restore function because the last one was for a Windows update about a week ago. There are no other restore points. I'm using Windows 11. Have not had problems prior to this. I even tried enabling the DMZ. I checked the Firewall and both teamspeak and gameranger are allowed.
Anyone else run into this?

It sounds like a network issue rather than a computer or game issue, have you perhaps noticed your internet access in general being shaky lately?

The only thing I can think of is to uninstall the update you got from Microsoft and see if that is the problem.

Hi Sandy.. If you open a browser and Google "What is launch error 58 in Gameranger", it will take you to a page of things you can try. Perhaps you might find something there.

Good luck
