So I played Borderlands, and it was awesome, I thoroughly enjoyed the game. I saw the steam summer sale for Borderlands 2 and jumped on the chance to play this awesome looking sequel. Well apparently so did my friends.
My real situation is that when I tried to connect to my friend's game, either through the main menu or through an invitation I would be sent to the loading screen, then the game would stop loading and I would end up on the main menu. I'm wondering why can't I connect to his game, or why can't I fully load into his game. If it makes a difference he's on a mac and I'm using a PC, but we both bought through steam. Is there a level cap I don't know about? I'm level 8 and he's level 3. I hope someone here can make sense of my situation. And sorry for this huge wall of text.
From what I recall, Aspyr Media works on updating the Mac version, so if the PC one is updated, you can't play with each other until Mac users receive their own equivalent patch. Not sure if anyone else he's/you've tried joining were Mac or PC users. --- Backloggery: http://www.backloggery.com/phanir || 3DS FC: 1418-6781-7928 Unofficial Indie Game Reviewer: http://indieadventure.co.uk/author/phanir/
There was a hotfix released on the 9th of July. If the Mac version didn't receive the same hotfix, then you won't be able to connect to someone running a PC if you're on a Mac and vice versa. --- Intel Core i7-3770K Ivy Bridge 4.5GHz | 8GB Samsung RAM DDR3 1600 (11-11-11-28) | SLi eVGA GTX 670 4GB VRAM 1006/1084/6008 | ASUS 27" Monitor @ 2560X1440
Thank you guys so much for the quick feedback. And it's a real bummer that I can't play with my friend just yet, but hopefully the cross platform problem will be fixed soon. Thanks again for the responses!
