Two of my friends can't connect to the same room in AOM and AOM:Titans. I'm not sure if this issue was solved in another thread; I tried searching for the problem, but I dont really know what to keywords to search for. Despite that, I still looked; if this has been solved already, I apologize. Please post a link to the solution here. About the issue itself: Two of my friends can't connect to the same room in either AOM or AOM:Titans. We updated regular AOM to 1.10 (I think that's the most updated version?). We tried this on both Direct IP and ESO for regular AOM. We also tried Direct IP for Titans (haven't tried on ESO because ESO doesn't update for some reason--but that's another issue that I'm not too concerned about). For all these cases, the same situation occurs. We would all be in the same room (except the two). When one of the two tries to connect, they would get into the room (the pre-game room, where you setup the map size, etc). Then when the other tries to connect, all of us can see that they are "attempting to connect", but inevitably gets out of the room, because they CANT connect. I initially thought they couldn't connect because they probably have the same CDkeys. However, I learned they both bought the game--so they both have AOM unique CDkeys. I know what's wrong and why it's affecting just those two. Please help.

Are they on a network in the same place or are they in different places? It might also be the internet speed problem because one person might have the slowest speed unallowing that person to continue.

I suspected that too...but...heh... They live in different areas; well, at least one lives at home while the other lives in his campus (at his university). The one that lives at home uses the university line though. (I think his college has some sort of ISP service, I guess, that lets people outside of the university to dail up through 56k). They both go to the same university (both as in, the one that lives on campus and the one that lives off campus). Would it matter though? If they have different IP addresses, they should still be able to connect (I'll check again to make sure they both have unique IPs). Heh. We all have pretty fast connections. I have DSL, and so do the others except these two (the dude on campus and the dude off campus). The one on campus uses a T3 while the one off campus uses a 56k LOL...so I guess it's possible that the connection speed could be a factor. (But...I believe my friend on campus actually went home and tried connecting through his 56k with my other friend offcampus; the problem still occured.) Oh...and another thing...The problem is that they just can't go into the same room. They both can get on ESO at the same time (I think)...just not the same room for some reason. I'll make the offcampus friend try using a different ISP instead of the university one, to check if that's a problem. I'll update this if it works...or doesn't work.

If they are both trying to connect from the same line (which they would if they both use the university) ESO won't let them play together - it thinks they are on the same computer.

They aren't on the same line though which is a problem. Instead of all those I thinks up there, could you possible find out the exact information. If all these are exactly correct, I'm guessing they both have a software problem that is directly connecting both of them.

They aren't in the same line, because they live in two different locations. They're both able to go into ESO at the same time...connecting to the same room is the only problem.

I'm guessing they both have a software problem that is directly connecting both of them.

If it is a software problem that is directly connecting both of them, is there a way to fix it? At the very LEAST what information do I need to provide to find out what the problem is exactly?

I'll let them reinstall the game, and see if that fixes anything.

Ah lol...thanks for the help. At least all this could narrow things down to find out exactly what is wrong with these two.

I have exactly the same problem with a friend of mine. Do you know if your two friends solved the problem by reinstalling the game?

I have this same problem with my friend from work. He can connect to a room with three other people but when I try and join the same room, I just sit there and count down. If he leaves the room, then I can join, but he can not get back in. Either of us (as long as the other is not in the room) can actually play the game with the other three people to completion.

We've turned off all firewalls, connected directly to the cable modems to take the routers out of the loop, we've both reinstalled the game, and we both have bought legal copies of the game (different keys).

Whats the deal?!?

It must the eso account then. When registering, there might have been something similar unallowing both people to play. If it's not that problem I can't help you.
