Okay so I want to play co-op with my brother, who is on the same internet connection as me however we keep getting 1-2 connection failed, no matter who hosts, we both have the ultimate collection on origin, and we tried all sorts of fixes on both our computers:

  • Allowing RA3 and CNC online through firewall
  • Removing FirewallPortOverride = 0 from options.ini saving and setting to read only
  • Selecting our own LAN IP addresses in the game's options>network
  • Downloading fixed launchers
  • Turning off antiviruses
  • using static IPs

However after all this we still cannot play together, we can play with other people but we only cannot with each other, it says connection in progress1-2 then connection failed 1-2, we both use windows 7, do we need port forwarding?

I am afraid that that is a know issue with two players on the same network (I believe that it always has been). A possible solution is for one of you to use a VPN to connect. That is so that you have, effectively, different IP addresses. You can google for a free VPN. See this post for some options. You will find different solutions on google, which may suit you better depending on where you are.
