Unable to join friends game

#1goatlickPosted 9/28/2013 5:09:30 PM
Hey all. I Just bought the game on Steam, and have been trying for almost 4 hours to play with a friend. It's not working. We have tried opening all ports listed in the many guides that have come up in my google searches.... We both can play fine with randoms, we're just unable to join each others games.

As we were searching for a solution, I noticed quite a few players had this same issue...

Has anybody had a similar issue and figured out a way to resolve it? Thanks.

Same here, There is no fix i guess. I have tried opening ports and everything else, i bought through steam. It just sucks because the reason i bought it was to play with my friend :/
The Outbreak series were the best

Do you have any VPN(virtual private network) running? LogMeIn Hamachi?
If so, try uninstalling them. Worked for a friend of mine.
