Some MP setup questions

Post by Dewbacca » Mon Jun 17, 2013 10:37 am

I have several questions... I'll try to put them in an order so they can be answered easily. I've studied the "How to" sections here and am having a couple of issues not covered there.

1) When in warzone hitting the launch link, it opens 1.0.2 vanilla... if the game were something else, say, BOP, how would I cue that .exe?

2) Is it normal that various port testing utilities show various ports open or closed. Let me explain... I went into my router and did as the manufacturer instructed to open the ports on the router. First review from one site says some opened, some didn't, try another site, it says one or two of the previously open ones are now closed and one of the ports that failed to open, is now open.

Using the DX test from the Warzone client yet ANOTHER PORT that was open is now closed, with another one that was closed open. I cannot get consistent readings from one day to the next. TODAY the results are :
47624 FAILED!!!
2300 Passed.
2301 Passed.
2302 Passed.
2303 Passed.
2305 Passed.
2350 Passed.
2400 Passed.

The 47624 port is one that has consistently opened... has reported open on several different tests, and HAS NOT BEEN CHANGED, but today, it's closed. Router shows it opened...

I'm really at a loss here. I'm no whiz at this, but I've opened ports for several games and never had this issue before.

this is normal that DX port test is bugged if you keep running test without closing window it will pass some of the time.

if all firewalls are set correctly now, you should be good to go.

Ahh I understand on the Other games... I'll mess with that a bit, thank you.

I'm very disappointed and simultaneously impressed that this game is so buggy and difficult to connect over the internet and you folks still persevere. Kudos to you all!

Thanks to Thunder, got in Warzone and it launched and played... another step taken! Now to get practice with turn timers!
