[C&C Generals Zero Hour] - Unable to connect to other players.

connection issues unable to connect forwarded ports firewall disabled

Using the launcher won't be helping you much.    You should unhook (if hooked) and uninstall the C&C:Online launcher and install GenTool.  When you have done that, you just launch the game from its ordinary shortcut. 

 

Also try installing this; TFD Unofficial Patch

Hello, today i wanted to play some ZH with my friends, however i could not connect to the players when the connection screen popped up in the game room.

 

It told me i was Unable to connect to other players, however last time i played was yesterday, and everything worked perfectly.

 

My ports are forwarded - 6667 TCP and 4321 UDP, generals.exe is added to the firewall exception list (HOWEVER im not even using it, its disabled.), added firewall exception port in the generals options, Send Delay checkbox is checked (tested without checking it, still doesn't work. And i was refreshing NAT everytime i changed something).

 

I really hope that this is a server problem. However, when i've seen guys from my buddy list playing games, i started to question my internet connection.

Also, my gentool is installed and updated to the latest release. My internet connection is wired.

 

Disabling DMZ won't do anything. And it worked even with DMZ enabled.

 

Here's the NAT TEST log:

NAT negotiation works with your router and connection.

MAYBE its a server issue, but i don't know, so i posted it here.
The servers were lagging as frog last night, however today they're most likely fixed and work smooth, so i want to convince myself in my internet connection.  :sleepys:

Seems like reinstalling TFD and patching it to newest version made the trick. Much thanks!
