Steam version: Cannot Connect

Postby Snaptroll » Sun Dec 21, 2008 5:16 am

Yes, I've read the Connection Problems sticky

Anyways, I just got this game on steam and fired it up. Steam autopatches so I figure version 1.2.3 is the correct version. I can't join any server online. When I host a game none of my friends can see it. I've tried port forwarding. Doesn't work. I've even opened my DMZ and that doesn't work and if that doesn't work I have no idea what it could be.

Anyone have any ideas?

Hm...let's see. What does your authentication status say? If you enable port forwarding, have you checked the option in preferences? Which firewall are you running? (Did you add MW to the exception/allow list?)

Maybe posting your debug.txt will help as well. Find it in your Multiwinia profile folder, and be sure to edit out your authkey.

Yeah, I've tried connecting with the port forwarding checked on and off. Windows Firewall is turned off. I added multiwinia to Kasperski's exceptions list. I've turned off Kasperski.

Here's my debug:

For some combinations of routers, the one hosting the game has to forward Multiwinia's ports (well, mostly port 4000, UDP) to his PC and enable the "Port Forwarding" option in "Help and Options/Settings/Other Options".

This is pretty much the problem. I just couldn't be bothered to change my router settings, because it's very complicated - and not much fun. Just use the ladder severs, and have a game on them. That way you get ranked to!

You couldn't wait 10 more days and have a round one year bump?
