I went to Yoda's help desk, but it didn't help me. I am a bona fide idiot. Can someone give my step by step, idiot proof, instructions on how to host an internet game on my computer for my friends? Every time I try, I don't show up on the server search list apparently. Like I said, Yoda's Help Desk didn't answer my question.
You have to open up you're ports from you're firewall or router.
Don't ask me what ones they are, though. I don't know.
i know the ports
The specific UDP ports that Jedi Academy uses are 28060, 28061, 28062, and 28070 through 28081 (inclusive.)
straight from the troubleshooting document
btw are this really an "noob" question?
I just felt stupid for not knowing how to run an MP game for a program I've had for years. I thought that it was just me. Maybe I'm not an idiot after all. I'll have to re-evaluate my life...
