Requirements for hosting.

Fri Dec 15, 2017 8:42 pm

Ive been trying to host lobbies which works properly, weird thing is that no one will ever join. Some guy told me he couldnt connect so i thought that maybe most or many people just cant connect. My router doesnt support UPnP so i was wondering if that could be the problem, and if so, what exactly do i have to do to get it working?, like do i have to open certain ports or something?.

Yes. portforward.com (or something like that). By default, the game uses 5730 UDP, I think.

It's possible, sure, but it will be shitty. The best rooms are wired 512k with good internet and, generally speaking, players from at least the same continent not limiting their own uploads.

Go to http://speedtest.net and post your results. Most people can host 512 no problem.
I've resigned. I am no longer involved with SaveMGO.
