I use Gameranger to play online games like Age Of Empires 3. The problem that I'm facing is that when a problem in my connection occurs like a momentary disconnection (less than 10 seconds), Gameranger kills the game process. I don't know why it does that. Within that 10 seconds the game would normally reconnect automatically and I could continue playing, but Gameranger doesn't care that and it kills the process.

How can I stop it from doing that?

I had no idea momentaneous was a real word. O_O – Matthew Read Dec 9 '11 at 22:45
@MatthewRead lol, I'm a spanish speaker so I invent new english words occasionally ;D – mjsr Dec 10 '11 at 11:31
Just kill the gameranger process during this delay. If you dont kill him, he will kill you:))) – user16253 Dec 10 '11 at 21:46

Since Gameranger is causing you issues, your best bet is to contact Gameranger support at this link. It appears this is the intended behavior of the application, so your only recourse is to contact them directly if you're unhappy with it.

Thanks, i write in their forum the same question, and apparently is the "normal behaviour". I put a suggestion of making this a seteable option, I hope to be heard. – mjsr Dec 10 '11 at 11:36
... Geez. And people use this piece of software why? – Shadur Dec 10 '11 at 11:45
