With the recent update the ports the game is using to communicate on have changed. Previously they were 9000 to 9036 via UDP, now they are 5000 to 5036.
If you previously configured the 9000 range in your firewalls and internet security apps, your router or modem's port forwarding and/or port triggering please update these to the 5000 through 5036 range instead.
If you configured 'userspecifiedport' within your userpreferences.ini file (in Documents > InfiniteCrisis) also update that setting.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled forums.
