Hello Descent Community!

I have been trying to host a cooperative game of Darkflamewolf's Enemy Within today and someone else tried to join. But they kept getting disconnected and I was wondering if the problem was me and if I could do anything.

My windows firewall is offline
My gameports that Rebirth is referring to are open
My router firewall is offline

Is there anything else I can do or will people always keep getting disconnected when I try to host a game? :(

edit: Oh and I am using the latest DXX Rebirth version (version 0.57.1)

The problem may be related to mismatch of mission versions.
Seeing that you are using Rebirth. There are 2 versions of this mission.
One for XL users (the one you linked to) and a Rebirth version.

Since you are using Rebirth. I would download the mission again, but from this site instead. That is the Rebirth version. You can tell from the size of the download. The XL version is much larger and has lots of custom content specific to XL. ;)

Rebirth doesn't have or use the XL custom stuff.

Also - the link I provided is to an updated version of the mission set. The readme file states that it's ver 1.1.

Well I'm assuming that there is.

The file size is much bigger and has custom folders.

One thing is for sure....in the reader files, it not version 1.1.

I downloaded it and all that's different is it has my soundtrack, and hi-res versions of the cockpit (all in the mods folder). So the mission file is still the same.

The problem may just be that it's still "hard mode".

AF - Then the problem is more then likely the client side.

Maybe they haven't updated Rebirth or the mission file?

Oh, I did replace the mission file with the one you guys linked to but up to now noone joined yet and I didn't have time to try hosting a game for longer again. But I am sure that the problem was that I used an old mission file (probably the hard one, since I noticed changes in the robot placement in the very first level already).

If the problem still persists, I will holler right here. :D
