I'm trying hard to join using my dreampi, but keep getting an "error joining game message". I've double checked the DMZ setting, set up manual port forwarding, and confirmed my IP using Quake 3, but no luck. Any suggestions? I really liked this game and have never been able to play it online (I've joined alienfront, quake 3 and others with no problem on the dreampi)

Welcome to Starlancer online! :lol: Unfortunately the game is just really buggy when it comes to hosting and joining games. A lot of the time we end up having a couple different games because one or more people can't join a certain game. So yeah, that's pretty much par for the course.

Well that's a bummer. I've hosted a game called "Anomaly ?" That I'll keep up until midnight eastern. If someone could try joining it and let me know how it goes, I'd appreciate it.

I got booted a few times from the games myself. I noticed once im booted from a game due to freezing no one else can join that game. I tried joining your game but it wouldnt let me. I find that if you disconnect for 15 mins then rejoin and refreshes the irc server. If you are free tomorrow evening maybe I can try and help you get on starlancer.

I'll try joining yours. Yup, DMZ to the dreamcast (.98, as shown in Quake3), and works fine with Alienfront etc. I can start the starlancer game fly through asteroids etc.

Saw your game "Test" and tried to join, but got the same error. I think I'll have to call it a night for now and look into using an alternate WAN/router before trying this again (maybe based on LTE). Thank you for the advice and the troubleshooting help though. Hopefully I'll have better luck next game night
