Consistent disconnect from one person

Postby Crap_Bag » 13 Mar 2017, 14:02

My friend (Selen) and i consistently disconnect from each other every game. It only occurs between us, we have no problems with anyone else. the disconnect usually happens at about 8 minutes in but it can go longer. We have tried forwarding our ports through our providers and everything we could think of. We aren't on the same network and have both reinstalled supcom and faf. It happens in other games too although it usually lasts longer than faf. I was informed that i need to "create a proxy" between us, i have no idea how to do this. We would really appreciate some help in this matter :)
i have attached my game.log and forever.log file, let me know if you want anything else.

A friend and I have been having what sounds to be the exact same issue and it is really frustrating. Was there any progress made on this problem? Thanks

FAF has problems with ppl being in the same network. I dont wanna bore u with the reason for it but it is known for years. So one of u would probably need to use a vpn(google that it is not that hard). Otherwise FAF is working on a new connectivity called ICE. Once that gets deployed u problem is solved checkout out discord we do regular tests with ICE there.

If you only you and your friend want to play (without others) in same game, you could use the ICE test client:

Join the "ice-testing" channel on FAF Discord and downloaded the lastest Beta ICE client from link posted by "Sandwormsurfer". It is a different server so you cannot see the games from the normal server, but this allows you to reconnect on disconnect and also play in the same LAN and without ipv6 problems and stuff (use game mod "FAF Develop" when creating game, automatic map download may not work).

Automatic map download should work, you can use any game mod, I don't know if the newest server is deployed, so if you get no connection to someone this is likely due to the server not forwarding your ice messages (server bug, not ice related), in that case restart the client. (which isn't necessary using ICE normally)
