I have Warcraft II on GOG and wanted to play online now that this game is out on battle.net but I get this message:
“Your Internet connection is either very poor or is not processing UDP packets through port 6112. You will be able to chat but will not be able to play games. Contact your Internet service provider or your system administrator for assistance with opening this port.”
War2 needs port forwarding setup on port 6112 UDP for your computer. Each router is different on how to do this.
FYI - upon login, check your Channel in War2 IRC lobby. It seems to put you in a random channel #. I tend to go to the ‘Classic Games’ channel. Streamer Trogallart and community hang out in channel ‘Op Trogallart’ on the weekends for EU.
No, that is Battlenet. GoG and Bliz’s WC2 connect to the same Battlenet: Blizzard’s Battlenet. If you want the individual gateways, you’ll have to use the old CD install. But be warned, that will split the playerbase up which will result in very few players to play with. That’s why the “Global” gateway was created for the modern version.
the war2bne from the blizz laucnher is exactly the same game/server as gog version for those that asked, confirmed.
we been dealing with split player bases for decades now. but thats why you gave me one month ban and deleted my posts. suggesting the largest base with the most support and updates. i mean gog/blizz shoulda just contracted war2 out to be done well. but we dont talk about gateways and warcraft2 beyound v2.02 anymore do we =]
i had an issue that made port 6112 not an option for me. perhaps its happening here aswell (which would be a fatal flaw for the gog/blizz server) when guys forward and open the port and still have issue. the only change to my system between playing and being unable to play was installing warcraft 3 reforged. also others i have run into on the server cant join each others games. (the ol latency issue)which was the closed 6112 port)
the solve to my issue is impossible for the blizz/gog servers. so if its the same case i feel bad for ya
perhaps something is going on that cannot be solved by simple port forward etc…
these arent even actual blizz employees these mvp tech supports from what im told.
we dont even know if a single employee is tasked with working on the game.
looking at old gog forum posts it even seemed some of the updates were limited as if they didnt have proper employee support.
ill be back, im lookign into these issues with people smarter and more experienced.
dont ban me again bro, im not advertising!@ =]
