hey guys, since a few weeks i can't join games anymore and other people can't join my games anymore (in the internet lobby).

in the window "Join Game" in the box "IP Address of Host:" it starts with ::ffff: and then the IP Adress. what's with those "ffff"? has
anyone else seen something similar? i can't remember what has been there before, but "ffff" just doesn't seem to be right.

thanks in advance and keep up the great work!

Does direct connect work?

if it starts with ::ffff: - it's an ipv6 address. do you have ipv6 enabled?

Well, was just asking about the direct connect thingy as last time I played the other guy was not able to connect via lobby - but
direct connect was working fine.

yes, direct connect works fine, just having issues with the lobby connection.

and it might be worth mentioning that the issue appears both ways, when others try to join my game and also when i try to join the game
of someone else.

i am using IPv4 all the way through btw.

I think I can imagine why (we switched the lobby server to an ipv6 capable mode)

it seems it will get a "wrong" ipv4 client ip addresses then. Will look into it.

Edit: this should be fixed now

I have the same problem. Please, help!

We have a problem with Lobby.
I can create a game, but my friend cannot join to my game: connection failed.
We tried both of iPv: 4 and 6. No results.
Please, help))

Hi Gadyuckin,

did the player who hosts open either a port (which the client player then used, default 3665 tcp) or did you enable upnp forwarding?
Both are router configuration, with which we can not help but you'll find help for most mofels by simply searching for your router name + the words "port forwarding".

In some cases the firewall is blocking, so you may also check that.

Hope that helps

Well, same ideas as written above - did you try them?
