Multiplayer Freezes

PostThu May 26, 2016 12:21 am

Every time I try connecting to my friends server using direct connect, my game freezes, then goes back to the multiplayer screen.

EDIT: is there a port I have to forward or what?

Your friend needs to port forward the port 12345 (trust me, it's legit)

I can forward ports.. But just don't ask for a walkthrough because every router model is different woth how they handle it. You'd do better looking at a guide for your specific router

Thank you so much.
Also, I can try to help for port forwarding in a different thread.

EDIT: Never mind. Port forwarding did NOT solve the issue. It still freezes the game for a brief second, then returns back to the multiplayer menu. Help!

We were both using my Steam account so starting it up didn't allow the other player to see it.

EDIT: I figured it out. Somewhat. I completely forgot about localhost (or 127.0.0.1) and that seemed to connect. However, upon joining the world, the host game freezes at sending world (0%)

EDIT2: Never mind, using the loopback address only works on the same PC. Otherwise, using none of the IP address (one given by game, my actual public IP, and loopback) work. Me hosting it, he can't connect (I'm port-forwarded, firewall off, etc) I've tried every setting, just doesn't seem to work.

EDIT3: Apparently retrying my actual IP works. The IP the game gives you does NOT work.
