Online play is such a pain due to no auto-port-forwarding. And other things.

Contact Aspyr support and let them know all the issues you're encountering. They may be able to provide you with assistance or pass them along for investigation for a patch.

This what i sent to Aspyr:


G5
1.6Ghz
1.25memory
Radeon 9800
10.3.3
Latest OpenGL drivers
Cable


I dont have access to my router. Im on a University's Network which blocks some ports.

* Ingame Map file-transfer does not work * Everyone has this problem.

Hosting/Join online via thru Gameranger is sporadic. Sometimes works sometimes doesnt.

Game crashes in heat of battle due to Out of Syncronization occasionally.

Vehicles tracks leave white graphic glitches occasionally.

Some maps have random graphic glitches near edges of map.

5 out 6 players only see eachother in online waiting room. Sometimes people just do see eachother and cant see typing in waiting room. This has happened to other players. Its limiting almost all game rooms to 5-6 players.

Game crashes when i change res from low to very high offline. example: 800 x 600 to 1600 x 1200.

Also,

If im looking at one section of map then switch to a section with units on it...

The units look as tho they are fireing. The tanks have a flame effect coming out of tank for a split second then it is fine. Its a split second only and usually happens when they are just made from Factory or Arms dealers. This happens occasionally but game burps for .7 secs or so.

Also,

Ive seen my Infanty get stuck at the exit of barracks a few times. They jus keep walking but are stuck on the outside wall of barracks.

Bah! Does no one care that this game is ultra buggy?

The ingame filetransfer for when you want to play a differnt map besides the few that came with the game does not work!!!

BUGGY BUGGY BUGGY!!!

Tons of other things are bugged also!

I dont think there is a patch coming and if there is one, they wont fix the Ingame file transfer for maps.

BAH!

Of course we care if the game is having problems, but as Brad said above, contact Aspyr technical support and let them know what the problems are. And don't forget to include a system profile and any crash logs which may be appropriate.

By going through their support system it's going to be much easier to determine the scope of problems and any common factors between them.

I have contacted them.

Will there be no working Ingame-Map-transfer?

Will there be no Map editors?

Will all games always be limited to 6 players and not 8?

Will there never be a auto-port-opening patch?

Dont mean to seem mean but im jus pissed. =)

But by posting 8 posts more or less in row in the same forum topic on the same issues won't do anything but getting the rest of us pissed at you. Please calm down, I'm sure i5works and Aspyr wants the game bug free as well. Patches don't happen in a day though.

Some bugs? Many bugs.

Saw 5 other big bugs in last few days....my fav is tho the Bomb Truck with a disguise, crashed 6+ people i saw today and does it everytime online.

It takes literally 20mins just to find a game on gameranger which works fine.

They advertised 8 players online. But only 6 is possible.

You guys should see the amounts of Tee'd off players on gameranger.

I think it is a very very poor port with not enough beta/bug crushing

So you say, and have done too many times already. Opinion noted, now shut it.

it took me some days before I could finally play online good.
it seems when you have " : " in your name it makes it unable for others to join when you are in the game and I needed to open some ports wich is difficult if you dont know how to do it. When finally I was playing the game crashed after I used a bombtruck...

STOP SPAMMING!!!

I mean it, keep it up and you won't be able to post at all. You've said this 10 times to much already, now shut your big mouth or we'll shut it for you. Spamming won't take you anywhere or solve anything.

Are you sure it may not check your internet and see how many players you can handle? And emoticon spam isn't much better...

Btw I just tried making a game on GameRanger and it allowed me to make one with 8 players.

I thought the problem was that only 5 or so people could see each other, but whatever. It would be nice to have some sort of confirmation from i5works about known bugs plus an ETA and info on patch development.

i5works is likely too busy actualy coding to provide this information. Just be patient, I'm sure they're working on it.
