So, I'm trying the beta DEMO (0.56g) because a special friend of mine asked me to. I really like the person, so I'd instantly hop off a bridge if she told me to. She mentioned this game and she wanted to try networking. I can port-forward, however she's thoroughly locked out of her gateway. I port-forwarded 6000, like it tells me to. She can't do anything but we figure since I'm the host, it should be fine. Maybe it's the distance (I'm in middle of Canada on a bad connection, and she's far end of the States), but we cannot seem to connect to eachother. The game pauses indefinitely trying to connect to me when my port IS forwarded, and gives a generic message saying it's the wrong IP if I don't port-forward. What ideas do people have? Is it necessary for both sides to port-forward, now? Can I avoid using Hamachi? I'd rather not because it does some not-fun things to my connection.
