It seems that Magicka: Wizards War uses random ports from my own testing. I tested it several times, and the result showed that it listened on port 15303, 15582, 16167, 17393, 17521 respectively in the tests. It also used port 54254, 64594, 56102, 55128, 58629 for UDP respectively in the tests. Therefore I suspect that this game will listen on a range ...
As this is happening across two different computers, I suggest it might be a ports issue. Make sure the ports for the games you want to play are open. This site is a good place to start if you don't know what to do, and this page is useful in working out which ports each game requires. Alternatively, it could possibly be a firewall issue if both your ...
It's an unfortunate side effect of certain games...I think Uncharted Vita used to do it or something. As far as I can tell, it's simply the game disabling network features for...some reason, and there's nothing you can do to keep it from happening. I thought this was a bug or something that was fixed since I haven't seen it in months, but I guess devs can ...
Does the WiiU Setup panel complain that it can't connect? Or does it seem to consider itself connected yet programs will complain that they can't access other sites? That is, the WiiU's Setup page shows a connection between WiiU and 'network device', but then fails between 'network device' and 'internet'? If the former, I have no ideas. But if the ...
There is a good possibility you are receiving the strict NAT type because of your service provider. I used to have strict NAT on everything I played and when I moved and got a new provider with no changes everything says open NAT now.
This is anecdotal evidence, but when playing Pokémon with some friends, those using local play showed as offline while I was connected to the internet, I suspect the 3DS uses a single antenna and some kind of ad-hoc network for local play. That would make it impossible to connect to both a normal wi-fi network and the local play network at once
Unfortunately, Road Rash for the PC doesn't natively support internet play. Like many games of its time period, the only officially-supported multiplayer configurations are LAN (TCP/IP or IPX) and 1-on-1 modem play. However, as is the case with many LAN-only games, it's possible to play Road Rash over the internet using a LAN emulator. In fact, it's still ...
This used to be happened to me too. It turns out I had a bad router, which cannot handle too much connection session. Even though softwares like Skype don't take up a lot of bandwidth, it may require a lot of connection sessions.(I don't know how to explain, it's like passing a 1000g ball to a person, or passing 10 of 100g ball to 10 person.) If your router ...
Yes the "unpacking launcher" just means that the launcher is starting up. It happens every time.
