    Hello, I've been playing Anno 1800 since initial release. My wife and I booted it back up for a multiplayer session and we're both getting the LR05 error. We have not changed ISP, modem/router, computer or connection. I've yet to find anything online about what error LR05 actually means. Can anyone tell me anything other than its "connectivity related" and the cookie cutter try doing x,y,z that has been there since the game released? Looking on Reddit, there is another person having the exact same issue - posted today.

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @gokey27 Also after trying matchmaking it will show "Match Found!" but it will not join the game lobby. It just sits on that screen (no errors or anything).

    @gokey27 Ok, may have found a solution - bottom line, its NOT connectivity related.

    Step 1 - Verify Game Files in the UPlay client. Go to your Games list, click the arrow for More Actions. There will probably be no issues here, but a necessary step.
    Step 2 - Reopen the game, it will reinstall DirectX Runtime.
    Step 3 - Check the game news in the bottom right of the opening menu, if these have a red exclamation point (error) over them go to Step 4.
    Step 4 - Quit UPlay completely and reopen it. For some reason the UPlay client will not discover there is an update until its completely closed out and reopened. Welcome to playing with UPlay.
    Step 5 - Download the game update. You may have to find your game folder again (a step we had to do), just find your game directory (Ubisoft > Anno 1800)
    Step 6 - After downloading the update, reopen the game and they should be able to connect to the game.

    This fixed the error message for my wife - we can now play multiplayer again. Hope this helps someone. Don't go to https://www.ubisoft.com/en-us/help/anno-1800/connectivity-and-performance/article/troubleshooting-connectivity-issues-in-anno-1800-pc/000061883 you'll 100% waste your time. These are troubleshooting problems for connection errors in the 90s.

    Hey @gokey27 , sorry to hear you were having this error when trying to play multiplayer. It isn't one I've come across before myself, but it's great that you've already found a solution. Thanks very much for coming back and relaying it to us - that'll be most helpful for other players running into the same issue.

    Indeed, many of these steps are covered in our troubleshooting guide (not the connectivity one), so we'd certainly recommend the rest of the steps in there too!

    I hope you and your wife have a good time in the 1800s, Gokey 😎
