with the latest patch we implemented an option that allows players to change the game´s default port, for cases in which two players behind the same router had problems connecting simultaneously.
This is the respective entry from the patchnotes:
Added the option to change the game’s default port if a router does not separate two connections correctly:
- Add these lines to your “Options.ini” file (C:\Documents and Settings\YourName\My Documents\Settlers7\Options.ini)
DefaultPort = 9205
The default value is 9103 - anything else should do
As this is a router specific issue we were not able to reproduce it. Therefor your feedback in this matter would be highly appreciated.
So if you are/were one of the players with such a problem, let us know if it helped you out.
