AE & GFWL Nightmare


#1

Hi,

I’m Australian and have a AE on pc, my friend, also in Melbourne has AE. My friends region is locked to USA for some reason and he can seem to play online but every time we go to have a match, if I host or he hosts, we get the dreaded ‘Could not join lobby’ ( or something to that effect ). Has anyone had this issue? I bought AE from capcom direct and my friend bought it on steam. we can talk on steam so I don’t think there is any point-to-point problems. If anyone has any ideas on how this may be fixed or if anyone has similar issues please reply.

Thank you.

p.s.
In endless mode I set the region to any, when hosting and when joining.

I’m guessing both of you need to open the ports GFWL uses. When you are logged into GFWL, press the Home key, then click on the “settings” button on the right hand side of the dashboard, and click on “network information”. Under NAT, it will say either Open, Moderate, or Strict. If either of you have anything other than “Open”, then you need to open the following ports:

[LIST]
[]Port forwarding must be enabled on the TCP port 80.
[
]Port forwarding must be enabled on the UDP and TCP port 3074.
[]Port forwarding must be enabled on the UDP port 88
[
]Port forwarding must be enabled on the UDP and TCP port 53
[*]Port forwarding must be enabled on the TCP port 443
[/LIST]
