I'm not sure, if i'm writeing to the right topic, but I have an issue.
At first, when i started up the multiplayer, it worked fine. Then i disconnected, and when i was trying to connect again BR crashed, it happened for multiple times (i mean the crash) , amd i dont know what i should do.

I downloaded it thinking I would only be able to see LAN servers... I was surprised when I clicked multiplayer and saw a list of servers!  I joined one and it crashed so I guess it really only is LAN right now  :P.

Well i did just exchange a few shots with other players over the internet.
I searched for games and decided to just try to join one.
It does not work always (just nothing happend when you click on join) and crashes a lot if you manage to get into one. But it did work!!!
So far so good!
It was quite some fun.
Hitting small Ships is almost impossible :) but the "dancing" around each other is still funny somhow.
And with other ships you get an idea how fast your ship really goes.

So, good work guys.

Do NOT try with Hamachi unless you're using a really old version.  The new Hamachi's are not made for gaming and will lag your connection like mad.  Use one of the many other VPN services specifically for games to tunnel your LAN through.  ^^  On a side note, I haven't tried the paid for version of Hamachi which lets you turn off encryption/etc, which might be the cause of the lag.

I'll see if I can get around to testing this build online today and post back.

Stupid question but can you recommend any good VPN services? :3

Heh naw, not a stupid question.  By far my favorite VPN for gaming would be Tunngle.  However, Tunngle has networked "rooms" of sorts for specific games and probably wouldn't work with BR (yet).  Until then, there are lots of VPN clients that are set up a lot like Hamachi.  Comodo Unite-http://www.comodo.com/home/email-security/vpn-access.php and Wippien-http://www.wippien.com/ are two popular ones that I personally have used that should work with BR over Lan.  Google "game vpn software" if you want to check out more.

What the heck? The master server is up! I grabbed a game using the browser, joined it, and it threw me into play! IP: 71.202.92.35.

EDIT: Oops. I accidentally tried to load in Thunderbolt, and this is what I got.

I haven't had a chance to try it yet but I didn't read it anywhere in the release notes - to anybody who has played it - was collision detection made better in this release, or do ships still have a giant invisible box around them that push other ships out of the way when you get near?

I managed to connect to the vengeful games server as well via the browser, got in, moved for a minute or two before it lagged out and timed on me.

EDIT: GOT IN! CHATTING!
