Failed to connect via LAN

#1SaberslashPosted 9/20/2012 9:45:48 PM
I was wondering if anyone else was having this issue, or if anyone can help me fix it.

I get Torchlight 2 installed on my computer and my wife's computer. I make a LAN game, and at first we could not connect to each other at all. We try all manner of rebooting steam/Torchlight 2 and finally she can connect to me.

Now she cannot connect to me at all. Just keeps saying connection failed again. But now I can connect to her LAN game for some reason..... Computers are literally feet apart, both connected to a router just a few feet away. Not wireless.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you need to be part of the same homegroup.

As far as I know we are both part of the same home group.

What is confusing to me is last night after fighting with it she could finally connect to me, then after a break she couldn't so I had to connect to her, and now we can't connect to each other at all...

Wow, okay, I forgot that I had upgraded her computer recently, and I guess it got her off the home group. After I re-added her computer, I was able to instantly access my LAN game. Thank you so much for this assistance. Sorry about my last post, I was booting up her computer at the time and hadn't checked yet.

As long as it still works tonight when we try to play again, awesome. Thanks again.

do you need to buy this game multiple times to play over LAN?

^no. At least not for the runic version. I imagine you might with the steam version.
