Playing Online works ONLY sometimes...

Postby Heather Watson » 24 Sep 2012, 23:32

This is weird and annoying. When I try play online, whether I host or join a game, it works. Other times of the day, it doesnt work. I dont understand why not? =/

I havent noticed a certain time of day that it stops working though, its just random times that it lets me play online and other times it wont let me. Any thoughts?

There is no error message. When I host a game, sometimes NOBODY ever joins my game or even it doesnt say that anyone is viewing my game details. And when I want to join a game, sometimes there is never any green available games for me to join, all red. But sometimes its fine and I can host/join easily... its weird : $

It s because of the ping.
Maybe it's not working when you use other programs on your computer, or when you download some stuff.
If it doens't work, even when there's nothing else than TE2011, it could be from your Internet provider, or someone using your wifi downloading something.
Well, that's my guess :)

It doesnt matter if im using other programs and I dont download stuff when I play the game. yeah there must be some reason... If its to do with my internet than fair enough but Im not so sure it is...

I just know that sometimes, I can't join a match because the PING is too high. So if your internet traffic is busy, your ping will be too high, and no one will be able to join. That's an hypothesis, i guess manutoo will explain.

Heather Watson,
this is either a problem with your network configuration, or an issue with your ISP.
If you use Wifi, try to switch to LAN. And in all cases, forward your 4321 port in your router, if you still didn't do it.
