When I log into multiplayer there are no people in the lobby. What's wrong?

Its because the UBI server has some serious issues with players not being able to connect or getting disconnected. Most groups that play SH4 ( like ours) use a LAN connection like Hamachi.
Another problem is that players have trouble opening their ports in their routers and not shutting off or making exceptions in their firewall and virus protection.
Join a multi-player group and you will be up and sinking enemy ships in no time.

As far as my experience goes, the "U-Boat Missions"-addon downgrades multiplayer. I own the addon, but after installing and playing it online I recognized bad lags and ingame-disconnects. Also, the random mission generator would cause an immediate disconnect after starting the game.
Since I'm only using SH4 with v1.4, multiplayer is lagfree and almost free of DCs, and the mission generator works just fine. But I guess most players still use U-Boat Missions in combination with Hamachi.

they redid the game engine for v1.5 and that is probably what makes the difference.
multi-player for sh4 is something i hear people have many complaints about not finding servers or other players and i get the impression its just not a muli-player friendly game.
Yes, PaulH513 is right, to play with
Sh4 is better to use LAN with Hamachi is but stable that Ubi. Otherwise you must open the ports in router and Firewall of Window.
