Netplay cannot select ships
« on: February 13, 2011, 09:20:27 pm »

I have scoured other posts to see if this is anywhere else, but I apologise if it is...

Me and a friend are connecting for netplay super-melee,
He can connect to me fine, but not vice versa, I am unable to connect to him.
Anyway, we both press battle! and I can choose my ship, but none of his keys move to select which ship he wants, no keys at all work except pause and quit ( F1 and F10 )

Am I being a dunce and missing something real important here? is there a fix for this? is it possibly a network issue ?

EDIT: more info

We have both portforwarded our routers to the correct port.
He is on a windows 7 machine, I am on XP.

The controls in netplay work the same as if you were on the same machine, so you may be either player 1 or player 2 depending on whether you use the lower or upper team respectively. This is reflected in the controls you use in-game (including selecting ships). Check the control configuration for player 2 and try those controls, too.
