How to get Multiplayer to work?????

Post by Ziegg » Sun Jun 29, 2014 3:14 am

Hello,

I have been trying for some time to get SotS2 MP to work with me and two friends. We have tried thusfar.
1) Tuungle, Hamachi, OpenVPN
2) Turning off Windows Firewall
3) Standard in game direct connect
4) Proper port forwarding of 35000 (to UDP), 35001 (to UDP), and 27015 (to UCP/TCP)

Nothing seems to work and Google is not rendering any helpful threads on other sites or this one that offer any information that either works or dates from after the switch from Gamespy match making.

Please assist,
A desperate fan

Hi there.

Since you go about Gamespy I asume you mean SOTS 1 - not SOTS 2 in which subforum you are.
As such open the steam ports for that game wont do any good.

I advice to read here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=38765

SotS2 did use GameSpy for some time before switching to Steam matchmaking.

Ziegg - have you tried disabling all firewalls and virus scanners completely? I've seen cases with friends where Virus checkers or some firewall programs will block hosting ability.
