    F#%K NAT Types

    SERIOUSLY. WTF. I'm trying to play ACR online and having nothing but trouble. Whoever is responsible for ACR multiplayer should put a bullet in their head. Same deal with Operation Flashpoint Red River.

    I know I can change my NAT Type but why the f#%k should I. Out of all the online games out that I have played never have I had a problem with any of them.

    Changing your NAT type is pretty easy to do. Shouldn't take more than a few minutes. I have NAT type 2 and don't get any online gaming issues.

    Yeah I had issues with games like Ghostbusters and Red Dead Redemption. I know there are inifinite guides online on how to change it, but all that shit is way over my head. May as well be in a different language. It was only when I moved into a new place and got a differant internet connection that my problem was sorted.

    Try setting up A DMZ, or portforwarding but be aware of the risk first, try googling for more information, It can be pretty complicated for some users.

    I gave up with NAT Types, especially with Unbisoft servers. I can have an open NAT Type while playing MW2, Black Ops, MLB2k11. But if I stick in MW3 or AC: Brotherhood. My Nat Type is strict. And I'll I have done is switched games. I don't even care anymore to be completely honest. I've pretty much grown tired of MP recently anyway.

    Just google how to change your NAT type, I did so and GTA IV online issues were solved.

    To change your NAT Type you need a computer don't you.

    See this is what I don't understand. I had no trouble with Red Dead.
    When my computer is fixed I will be trying to fix it. Then I'll be sending Ubisoft an email saying "F#%K YOU!"

    Some games just use certain ports that some routers block the use of, which makes it hard to communicate.

    Honestly, for the PS3, I just recommend setting up a DMZ local IP for your PS3 and bind it to your PS3's MAC Address (so someone can't just nab it when your PS3 isn't using it).


    If you need help doing so, feel free to PM me.

    As KC1598 stated, you do run risks doing so, but by binding it to your PS3's MAC Address, you are lowering the risk quite a bit (unless they break into your router...be sure to set up a good password for that). I don't think anyone is going to crack into your PS3 and gain access to your network since it's not an easy system to crack. Plus, realistically, your information isn't worth that kind of an effort (unless you run a server at home with personal data on hundreds/thousands of people, or something similar), so I wouldn't worry about it lol.

    This is what I did with my Verizon FIOS router.

    What I do find interesting, however, is the fact that ACR tells me I have a moderate connection. Says I can't communicate with NAT Type 3, even though all ports are open on my connection to my PS3. It's fairly odd. However, that's a strict NAT, so it's probably just an issue on their end and not my own.

    EDIT: Also, I could use some ACR friends :3

    Yeah NAT Types are a pain in the ass. Up until a year ago I was a type 3 and it was a serious pain as I wasn't able to play Medal Of Honor, Quantum Of Solace, it was almost impossible to play Spec Ops on MW2 with someone online without encountering a connection prolem and I kept getting logged out of PSN at least twice. I was lucky enough to find a guide which helped me get it to a type one and was able to play online without much problems.





    You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity. All it takes is a little push
