We´re having problems with Multiplayer
« on: January 23, 2017, 02:19:50 PM »
Hi,
a few friends and i just purchased this game and we started multiplayer over hamachi.
We created a hamachi network and and they joined my multiplayer game. But in every game, it says "waiting for players" after a couple of minutes.
When we restart the game it wont work either. We arent tech buffs so we would really appreciate if you could help us,
because otherwise it really seems like a very fun game.
Please forgive me for my spelling mistakes, as i am not a native english speaker.
Thank you for help in advance.

I would recommend avoiding Hammachi, but the short answer is this. You have to make sure that your ports are open according to the settings page. I think it's 7918. If you are using Windows, you will have to account for the Windows firewall. Or any third-party firewalls. Just try getting a game going with one friend so you can prove that it works and go from there.

The reason I think that it is your firewall is that the problem that Hamachi solves is router port forwarding. It won't solve your PC settings for you.
