View Full Version : Problem on the Zone
11-16-2001, 11:13 PM
I need help. I have been having a big problem on the zone. I can't play any multiplayer games. When i join a game and click in the game wont start it just gives me an error: unable to conect to player 3 or 4 whichever. When i try to host a game it I get there but no one else does. I am running windows ME and am connected on a DSL modem, two computers in my house have it. If anybody knows what I should do, could you please explain in detail what I need to fix this problem. Thanks for your help.

I don' t know much about it but could your router be the problem? One of my friends is unable to host because he uses one.

I've seen this before. I have the same problem. Do you have a linux firewall up? If so, I believe THAT'S your problem.

It's probably a router/firewall problem, I was unable to host games until I turned off the firewall that's built into Windows XP and I can't host at work because of the firewall issue too :(

Yes - your router is what is blocking your connection. Unfortunatly, many LucasArts games have these connectivity problems. Unless you directly connect into your DSL modem, or you set your router to direct ALL incoming ports to your specific computer: you won't be able to host/join MP games :(
I had this problem throughout the ENTIRE beta process and it kept me from crushing people like ChrisC3PO and DJG :)

I have a linksys router on my DSL connection and I can always connect to games on the zone. I hosted a private one in the trial version for me and a friend too.
Zone is dead. Try GameRanger or Voobly.
