Apologies for the delayed response.
If you're still experiencing connection issues, these can usually help:
1) Restart your computer - in most cases it'll fix this issue
2) Restart your Internet Modem/Router - turn power off, wait 10 seconds, turn on and restart the game
3) Disable Anti Virus and Firewall - and if that works, re-enable it and set DoF.exe and/or Mithrill.dll as exceptions
If none of those help, please let us know and we will see what else can be done.
We do still care about this game and are working on improvements/expansions.
Making this game is no way to make a quick buck, it took years of working at low/no pay and was only really successful after releasing on Steam through Greenlight, even then we still haven't paid off all the debts/backpay owed. I would have made more money and had a more stable income working at a fast food outlet part time.
