internet battling problems
i tried to play X-wing alliance online with a friend but it just wouldnt connect, we were using the two Cd's that i own to play and the game would work but we would fail to connect to eachother. i have never played online before and wish for some assistance as to what to do to make it work.

Are one or both of you behind a router (something like a DSL modem would count as one)?

I am very interested to hear about this as a collegue of mine and I plan to try this as well, and I am very interested to know how it may work. Wildstar will be able to help you i am sure as he is one of our most expert members in all things X wing :)

I'm not sure if a cablemodem (as opposed to DSL) would need to have ports forwarded, but you can definitely ask your ISP's tech support if you need to. If you have to, you'll need to forward TCP 6073 and the UDP range 2300-2400 (if it doesn't give you an option for either TCP or UDP, don't worry...forward those ports anyway).
