Have been booting up the other online games, so far so good (with the exception of a lack of players unfortuatly)

Edit; so cool, I still have my old AFO savefile with 50+ online games played, during the attract mode it showed old leaderboards. Will upload it later, perhaps it features fellow dc-talk members :)


Yeah its suppose to be included in Dreampi 1.6 :)

I have been able to connect from day one but now all of the sudden it doesnt work and just disconnects and says that the server is unavailable. I tried the iptables patch but it doesnt help.

I had the same issue, double check to make sure you aren't mistyping anything. I made that mistake too.

you were right. thanks
i didn't add the two dashes in the IP tables command before the word destination

what is weird is that i never needed this before and have been playing with just dmz on for the dreamcast IP. every other game works fine without anything else required.

Hi,
I cannot connect to the AOF server because I always get following message: Experiencing communication problems....

I added the AFO IPTables in Dreampi 1.5. Do you know what the problem is?

Thx in advance,

That issue occurs when the DC (your router) doesn't accept UDP port 7980. Check if you have
configured your router correctly.

@Shuouma: Thx. But unfortunately my modem/router "is seeing" only the IP address of the Raspberry Pi. I know the Dreamcast IP address (x.x.x.98) but my modem/router not;(
