Nice wall paper. Oh and thanks for posting. Now I'll know what to expect when I install a Firewall.

All it does is try to make a network connection to make sure it can once a network game starts.

OK I'll buy that as my home system has no network or phone line. BUT... I had a mysterious ESOCK error that kept me from playing the demo, until I install the communications option (dial up networking) from my Window 98 CD.
I have about 15GB of other programs that ran just fine. So maybe SE4 could do a better job of program error trapping, notification, and allow the program to run without TCP/IP.


I love this game.
So many ugly women, so little beer.
