We're connected right now. We are trying to host a coop game (maybe D1, we will see)

I found it and connected but it said

"waiting for signal from 'Pumo' to enter the mine"

And did nothing.

I could hear you guys shooting robots so I must have gotten through in some form.


Apparently I am missing packets, bugger. Probably because I am so far away

I managed to connect with a bit of persistence.

But on the next level I encountered the same problem: missing packets.

Has anyone run into that error message before? If so what can I do to resolve it?

I have the suspicion that it may be caused by high ping, if the game is hosted in Europe or America I will have latency issues. A game hosted in Australia or New Zealand would be ideal.

OK, let's do the next test (if possible this saturday as i will be available to play):

Try you (yoke) to host the game instead of me so i can try to join to your game.
If i get the same issue as you so it's very probable it's a ping problem like you said.

I will try to get a game hosted in the next hour. Coop on Vertigo like what we had before

If there is anything you think I should know before hosting a game then discuss it here.

I am running the latest version.


A game is running now. (4:21PM Friday GMT +12)

I don't see the game.

I know my ports are open. I have hosted and joined games in the past. So it shouldn't be on my end.

I couldn't see it either.

Hmm, I did not change anything, just had default settings.

I cannot imagine what may be blocking the game.

Is there anything that should be configured/enabled beforehand?

Any specific restrictions on the port?

Do you started the game at port 28342? that's the one i use it and it works, but if you're already using it i can't say much more.

Maybe you should ask to Diedel, he may know more, as i'm not an expert at those network things.
