When playing Starcraft (broodwar), whenever i make a game, nobody else can join them. My friends say it reports "too high latency". ive had this problem before, but ive forgotten how to change it, and i dotn know why all of a sudden it is like this again.

i hear i need to allow port 6112 to in and out or something, but I dont know how..

any help would be nice. thanks a ton!

Hi there,

It wouldn't be very 'laggy' for you because you are the servers host and you are hosting it from your pc.

What type of router do you use? Different routers use different methods to allow ports.

Thanks :whistling:

When that happens to me, I usually have my friend make a game and join it, only to the main screen, and then I make my game.. I think it helps, Im not quite sure haha...
