Red face My friend can't connect or host games??

Hi, my friend who lives in New Jersey can't connect to my friends and I who live in California. Whenever he hosts a game and we join, or when we host a game and he joins, whoever is the joiner has their game crash.

This doesn't happen for any other game, except for Magicka. Magicka worked if we used Hamachi though, Alien Swarm doesn't work period.

the problem lies in ur network setup and router config. what u need is to do a port forward, on the router serving the host, and then make clients connect directly to host's public ip.

that's all info i can provide. hopefully u will manage it.

I had this issue when I was logged in on two hosts, one of which was Linux, and the other was Windows. When I shut down Steam on both of them, and opened it on Windows, it corrected the issue.

Some people have this issue if they do not remove the "LAN discovery" under "Options" -> "Multiplayer".

Hope this helps.
