  • DP +win10 -unable to connect to server?

    just earlier today i shared a copy of my darkplaces setup with a close friend so that i could play coop together with her,

    but when she tries to connect to a server, darkplaces tells her that the engine is
    unable to find a suitable network socket to connect to

    i myself however have no issues whatsoever connecting.
    we were both trying to connect to flanders.quake1.net:26001

    we are both using the same DP build and both our DP setups are 100% identical, as i shared my setup with my friend.

    i have no issues whatsoever connecting, but my friend keeps getting that error whenever she tries connecting to the same servers


    the only difference is that i am using windows7 and my friend is using win10.
    i dunno if there are known issues with win10 and quake?

    .

    anybody might be able to help with this?

    are you curious about what all there is out there in terms of HD content for quake?

    Hi Talisa
    It's just a thought but it might be worth looking at your friend's firewall, assuming she has one, to ensure that the packets are getting through both ways. NetQuake engines sadly can choose from any of a whole range of ports other than the one the server is "advertised" on.

    I use a Windows10 machine to play Quake on most days so it's unlikely to be that. Does she have the same problem on any other euro servers such as bigfoot.servequake.com or damage.servequake.com? Is it the same with other engines such as Qrack or Proquake? Has she tried to run DP with the -ip flag temporarily set to her internal IP address ?

    Hope this helps

      Does her server browser in DarkPlaces work or do nothing? (This could shed some light on the problem if the server browser works --- or if it doesn't).

      I would have her open a DOS window (Windows key + R, then type "cmd". In the window type "ping flanders.quake1.net" without the quotes) and try to ping the server.

      1) If it works from cmd.exe but not DarkPlaces --- it's DarkPlaces somehow (or maybe a firewall or multiple connections).
      2) If she can't ping the server from cmd.exe, something else is going on.
