Hello there fellow Generals
Me and my friends (lets call them Friend A and friend B) bought the ultimate edition of CnC on Origin, we installed GenTool.
Yesterday I played with friend A, and it worked just fine - was able to connect to online services and we played some custom games.
Today I played with friend B and it worked completely fine aswell.
Later that day we wanted to play all three together, but that didnt quite work - after some testing we noticed that Friend A and B cant connect to each other (it said "waiting for probe response" and then the error "cant connect to other players".
So - for me it worked just fine, but Friend A and B cant establish connections somehow.
We did some research about these kinds of issues and tried the following
-running it as admin
-compat mode for win xp sp3
-changed firewall settings / turned firewall off
-changed FirewallPortOverride = 16000 in options
-changed the IP adress in options to our actual IPv4 Address
-deleted the "GameSpyIPAdress" line in options
so now we're running out of ideas since we cant find any other fixes. We read about problems with CnC online when 2 people are using the same router - and - both of my friends are using a fritzbox (i dont know if that may actually be a problem)
I read about some fixes including changing Ports and stuff, but we all have none to minimal knowledge about ports so we didnt try a lot there
Anyway, I hope the problem is understandable to you guys somehow, not a native english speaker
