I don't know. He got Oblivion to connect two PC's together. All I need from him is his networking skills and a chain of miracles.
It's a long shot, but at worst it'll fail.
Speaking of highlander, hardcode and fujiwara: Have they worked on M&B Multi themselves, or are they just overall modding deities?
If they've worked on a multiplayer mod, then maybe their notes would be useful. I could see where they hit a wall, and maybe...I don't know. Find someone who knows how to code and someone who knows how to network.
