Lag is a noticeable delay between the time something is initiated and the time when it happens. For example, pressing an "attack" button and finding that the attack doesn't happen until a second later. Latency is sometimes used to mean the same thing as lag, but in networking it's generally used interchangeably with ping time: the amount of time it takes ...
EDIT: This no longer works This function was removed by the dev and this is now broken. I will keep it here for reference. The dev has also added a new game mode, Party. With that you can connect with your friends. At the moment it only works with FFA rules. Of course if you want to play Any of the other modes, again you can connect to the server via the ...
Pretend we have a sheet of paper with lots of holes. Those holes are ports. Minecraft wants to use Port Number 25565. You allow it. So you stick a pin through that hole. When you shut a server down properly, it tells the hole to disconnect Minecraft's pin from the ports. When you don't, the server is no longer online, but the pin's still connected. (For ...
A currently running process is listening on port 25565 and will not give it up to the new instance of your server. In your situation, it's likely the process that's "clogging" the port is (part of) a previous instance of your server that wasn't shut down properly. In Windows XP, run the command prompt with Win+R>cmd. Then run the command netstat -ano to ...
You probably don't hit his hitbox. This can be caused by you (not hitting hitbox) or your internet (lag). If bleeds when you hit him on your pc and not on server (lag) or when you shoot his model, but not his hitbox. Image courtesy Blankooie.
The easiest way to go here is to use Steam's in-home Streaming Feature. It is specifically build to play games remotely from one computer in a home network while it is run on another. This also works with other games that are not native to Steam. It would solve all your problems at once. You only need to install Steam on your Linux Computer.
Steam Link is essentially streaming rendered gameplay and user input back and forth between multiple devices. This will require a reasonable amount of network bandwidth but more importantly, stable and low latency. It's not likely that you'll experience bandwidth related issues as a result of using power line networking so we'll concentrate on latency. ...
You can use the Chrome plugin for it. You just type the IP address out in the Start GUI.
You posted seven hours ago, so the immediate problem may have been resolved by the reboot suggested in another answer. However, as a more fine-tuned solution, you might find this answer valuable: How to close TCP and UDP ports via windows command line. Rebooting the entire machine will end all processes, freeing all ports used by those processes, and that ...
I would suggest using Evolve or Tunngle instead of Hamachi. I use Tunngle to host and play with my friend. These are more reliable ways of setting up virtual LANs. Just get in one room with person you want to play!
If the game is crashing the network, it is possible that the drivers are out of date OR the software used in the game is conflicting with his native drivers and causing a crash. My PC crashes a certain program whenever I plug my headphones in, as an example. Things to try would include: Updating drivers for the networking device = check the manufacturers ...
A few things: Did you friend publish the world to LAN? He can do that via the /publish command Don't connect through the server list. Just go into your Multiplayer tab and scroll down. You should see his world there. Do you have different mods? Make sure your mods that you have currently installed are the exact same. Make sure that you are playing on the ...
If you have access to your router or Firewall you can forward the Port: 25565 so they can connect to your router and get dirrected to your Server if they connect with the Port. If you dont have a router you have to manage this on your Intern Computer Firewall. If you dont have access to your router there is no other way than using Hamachi or a Public ...
There is no way to "boost", "improve" your network, if a software claims that it can, be suspicious !
This could be caused by client vs server hitreg issues. In this video you can see that sometimes (especially when you play with 100+ ping) csgo server and client hitboxes will differ, this causes your client to think you hit the opponent and display blood, while the server doesn't think you hit the opponent and in turn you get blood but no damage (and also ...
I had this error before when trying to play with my friend. Try this method: Assuming that you have a computer running Windows: 1: Press Windows Key + R to open the run dialogue 2: Type in "cmd" to open up the command prompt 3: In the cmd, type "ipconfig" 4: This should bring up a list of addresses. The address you want is the IPv4 address 5: Lastly, ...
My friend and I had the exact same problem when playing! To solve it for us, he (the server owner) just set the max number of players to 8, instead of 2 as it originally was, and that allowed us both to leave and join without issue. Hope this works for you as well!
I have found that this particular task isn't possible with the PS3 version. If your friend was on a completely different domain, For instances you have 2 internet lines going to your house it would work, but for some reason it does not work using the same domain.
The pokemon X/Y game had several updates, what you need to do is go to the Eshop and download the updates. Nintendo 3DS games don't updates their games on its own unlike other consoles and PC and that is probably the cause of your connection error. I had the exact problem with the first update.
