First: Has UBI fixed their software so that hosting behind a router is possible again yet?

Second: Is UBI going to update the Dedicated server so that it is possible to host CoOp games anytime in the future?


I hate that we HAVE to host through UBI, but this I can live with if I could JUST HOST through UBI.

And our squad spends a fair amount of time in CoOps, so the ded server is only half useful, and this is lessened further by the fact that UBI is neccessary to even run the thing.

It may be v1.11 IL2FB, but, if you remember, UBI recently updated their game zone (or whatever it is called) software too. This may be the problem.

I don't think that UBI wants to admit that there is a problem.

I can host in Hyperlobby with no probs, I can host VIA IP no probs. I can't host via UBI. It gives out my internal IP no matter what I have the GAME ZONE settings set to.

I want to use the dedicated server, but can't if no body can join....grrr.

Tinman - I wish you luck getting a response with this. I have been banging my head against the Brickwall that is called Technical support since the day the dedicated server was released on issue 1. Along with the issue that if you do manage to get it registered at UBI it will soon disapear off the list anyway.

I do not really think that the higher echelons of the company give a ****** about the situation. Without these issues being solved the Dedicated Server is a total dead duck officially and they might as well have not wasted their time on it.

Regarding the Dedicated Server... Wildhoney has already written some tools to run the Dedicated Server in a LAN without going through the ubi.com game service.

He is also working on a solution so that the Dedicated Server can be used together with Hyperlobby.
