So I just want to host a game so me and my friend can have a simple duel fight and fool around. We want nothing more but when I create a game he says he can't see it. How do I create a game which we can both be in ? Thanks

It looks really complex. Is there no easy way ?

You could also get Hamachi which simulates a LAN network over the net. Simply download it, install it, make a group and set a password, tell your friend to install it too and give him the group name and password.

You and him will then be in a Hamachi group together, tell your friend to copy your Hamachi IP (Tell him to right click on your name and click Copy Address)

Now, simply go into the game and create a normal server like you did when you first tried, tell your friend to come into the game and type /connect AddressHere:21000 or :29070

For example:

/connect 5.195.177.100:21000 or /connect 5.195.177.100:29070

The reason for the two ports is because in my experience some people can't connect to my Hamachi server through 21000 but only through 29070 and vice versa.

I hope that makes sense.

You don't need Hamachi to connect to a server via IP. In fact, you're better off without Hamachi, it's a great big gateway for bruteforce attacks.

In basic terms, your friend doesn't have to see your game on the list. He can use the above /connect method, all you have to do is give him your IP address. You can find this by using the What Is My IP? site - give them that IP address displayed, and tell them to attempt to fix the two port codes on the end as SiLink says.

The full command is: /connect xx.xxx.xx.xxx:21000 Obviously, replace the x symbols with your IP address, and change the 21000 to 29070 if 21000 doesn't work. It's either one or the other, which one depends on how you start your game up.

Using Hamachi is just making a simple issue more complex than it needs to be, as well as compromising your system's security. It's a client that creates a virtual network, but a virtual network is still a network, and thus it's just as vulnerable as any other network if not handled with the utmost delicacy.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

This is what I wanted to know people. Thanks This works to where you are joining the game it says "Connection Attempt 1" and then the numbers keep going up. What am I doing wrong ?

Check that the ports are unblocked with your firewall and/or router, and ensure that Jedi Academy Multiplayer has "server" or "data send" permissions (or whatever else it might be called) if your firewall requires it.

The most likely issue is that the connection is being blocked by something on the host's end.
