We are trying to play on Mineplex from one public IP addres under 2 different Minecraft accounts from two different PCs behing home router. Still after many tries, sugestions form this question, selecting the same lobby etc., cannot see each other.

When as a Player1 I try the /PARTY Player2 command, it says

You cannot party with yourself

Still it is showing at the top screen Welcome Player1 to the Mineplex network. The other PC has correctly Welcome Player2 to the Mineplex network. We choose the same lobby (e.g. 15), still in minigames we see completely different numbers of servers.

Should I login anew or something like that, or the single public IP is the problem?

  • What is the question? Are you asking about partying or minigames?

  • I see, I thought it is connected, just we wanted to play together and no way, though everyrhing seemed setup ok Jan 31, 2016 at 6:15
  • We want both party and play minigames together, the non-functional PARTY command could be a clue as per what is wrong, on both computers has Mineplex been played as Player1 before. Jan 31, 2016 at 9:39

I don't think your IP is a problem. However, you could try using a VPN service like TunnelBear or Betternet to get another IP adress. Really weird that this is happening to you, I can play Minecraft with others in the same house just fine. Are you absolutely sure you are not typing /party invite [your own name]? Also, make sure you are both using eu.mineplex.com or us.mineplex.com If really nothing works try reinstalling Minecraft.
