Lag problem
« on: September 07, 2023, 08:34:18 AM »
I am having lot of problems playing lately , i can barely join a game , and if im allowed to join i can only handle 2 players , if theres a single watcher i drop off...
the connection is the same i had for 5 years nothing changed , i installed HD version and all problems started , i uninstalled and reinstalled thousands of times and still not works, tried also with normal version 46 , with and without hole punch , also with and without VPN, also tried with mobile hotspot connection and the situation is always the same , i did reset my router , i updated my comp and did everything its required , still not workin , if you're not gonna solve the problem i'm gonna say goodbye

and check if it will have lags too

Not easy to find somebody else computer to download game and test :)

There is no config/patch to fix it? I know is not simple

I should try to get a comp from a friend and try with it,
i had bit lag issue few months ago where i couldnt host and join lobbies with more than 2 players, but it solved itself , maybe after a server refresh? idk
i had little bit lag few days before downloading and installing HD version
Now its the same both HD and normal .exe , so idk really what changed

I attached test program you can use to check if the problem is your internet connection. click on Get, wait a moment and then copy/paste the "NET Type" in here so I can check. Or even better, post a screenshot of the result here

*Edit* File removed, check next post for new download link

"Symmetric" is the worst possible result. It means that either your router is the issue or your internet provider.

With "Symmetric" you will only be able to join games, and only if the host has the port forwarded. Hole punch does not work with "Symmetric" either. You will probably only be able to play 2 player games (unless all players in the game room have the port forwarded, then it would work with more than 2 players too)


If you didn't change your router then the problem is probably your internet provider, they may have changed something and now you don't have a private ip4 address anymore.


Anyways, you can work around the problem with a VPN. This one used to work here, but i'm not sure if it still does: https://hide.me/en/free-vpn

Install the VPN and then run the test program again, it should show a different result then. If it doesn't work, try a different VPN, this one here used to work too some time ago: https://www.hotspotshield.com/de/kostenlose-vpn/


And make sure you also got the hole punch patch installed, you will need it to avoid conflicts

Just tried it with hide.me, but it seems like the test server blocked the VPN. I attached a updated tool, you have to redownload and use this one to test with VPN.

Make sure you never run the test tool and the game at the same time, both use the same port and are interfering with each other.

Download: https://github.com/FunkyFr3sh/Warcraft-II-Port-Test/releases/latest/download/Warcraft.II.Port.Test.exe

Here's how it looks like if it's working (PortRestrictedCone):
