I am pc novice and couldn’t tell if my sound card is internal or external. It’s a 21 inch 3.4 ghz, core i5, 8 gb Ram I bought from Best Buy for 1.3 k.
I read about ogg but I don’t want to dL some software for that thinking it might conflict with iTunes. But if anyone can guide me thru it do we can test then I can try too.
I don’t mind losing sound for as long as the error message disappears so that when I play MP I could still read team messages.
I don’t play any other sounds during game also nor run any other programs except the game.
Hi, have you tried enabling STUN while opening the host from the lobby? If your ports are correctly forwarded, this shouldn't be needed, but it could help otherwise. I had problems with port forwarding because my internet provider doesn't forward ports unless you pay some extra. On the other hand, some people have problems connecting to STUN-enabled hosts due to some security restrictions.
If you are on the same network, connecting directly to the host's local IP address should work even more reliably. There could perhaps be problems with firewall settings, but the problem typically is that people enter the wrong address. Maybe try sharing more details about what you're entering. I hope we can get it to work.
