Host Lantency Issue , Same connection high ping
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:05:44 AM »
Hello! So Today i downloaded the game on my PC because we wanted to play warcraft 2 with my friends and my bro i also created a map. But whenever we create a host we can't join to that room.. (my bro' has laptop)   :-\

We tried playing with others separately worked really good no high ping  or things like that .. but when i joined with my brother we couldn't play together bcs some people said our ping is to high maybe bcs of same connection..

P.S I also tried what the forum said about Host Lantency Issue it didn't worked we also have the same OS (win xp)

hiya! there's 2 separate issues to understand here:

1) someone in your group needs to be able to host games by forwarding port 6112 in their router. (this is the correct guide to follow: http://en.war2.ru/hosting) once that's done, other people on the server should be able to join games hosted by that person. if other people on the server (not your friends) still can't join the games then the port forwarding didn't work correctly & we'll need to do additional troubleshooting to fix it. once it's confirmed that hosting is set up correctly you can move on to the next issue.

2) it's common for people on the same connection to be unable to play in the same game together, even if one or both are able to host & play with other people. you can fix this by using a VPN on one of the computers to give it a new IP address which will bypass the problem. also, whoever is able to host games should NOT use the VPN, so if you & your brother are on the same connection and you set up port forwarding for your pc, then your brother needs to be the one to use the VPN. here's a quick guide for using the free VPN tunnelbear: http://en.war2.ru/support/multiple-people-on-same-network-have-high-latency-lag/#vpn

let us know if this helps!

Both of you when you install war2 combat check the box that says random port and problem is solved. This works if you are on the same network.

not always, i've specifically tried this in the past more than once for different people, sometimes it works & sometimes it has no effect

btw i've now tested ProtonVPN and it works great for war2! it's free & unlimited so i'll be updating that guide to use it instead of tunnelbear :thumbsup:

You need to have your routing set up to forward each game port to the appropriate client. Depending on the individual LAN architecture this could happen for you automatically via NAT or may need to be set manually.

Nice :) It works for hosting too?
