Both sides were running Windows 7.
We also tried setting compatibility mode to winXP SP3 and SP2 which made only the host crash on the instant the player joined.

Can you include backtrace or something useful about crash?

Sure. Can you tell me how to extract it?

you have to run it in a debugger

run via:
$gdb <exe-file>
(gdb) run
play, after crash alt+tab to the gdb command window (cmd.exe) and type
(gdb) bt full
This will generate a backtrace that you should attach here.

When running "gdb wargus.exe" it says: "Program exited normally", and there's no stack even while the game is still running.
When running "gdb stratagus.exe" gdb crashes. I'm using mingw's gdb version 7.1.

wargus.exe only start stratagus (using exec) with correct params. But on Windows function exec does not replace current process image (like on POSIX systems), but start new process. So start directly stratagus with params:

"<path_to_gdb>\gdb.exe" --args "<path_to_stratagus>\stratagus.exe" -W -v 1 -d "<path_to_wargus>"

If you have still problem, contact me on email.

Correction: I meant that both players use the 32-bit version.
