No I got a direct reply from one of the Atari Mods on that one. They had not turned back on the clubs until they were sure the rest of the patch was stable. I'm sure they will turn them back on sometime today.

I have you on my list now and tried to join you but you were obviosly in a race. I was checking something in WoT for Louis so I had logged off. I wanted to invite you over to one of my bigger houses to show off my garage(there's points in it for both of us  ;) )

You could add the port into your router that may help.

8889 UDP is the only one that I know of. I added mine in but I run UPnP and most of the time it comes up Open:Full Cone or UPnP depending on its mood

Windows Firewall would pop up as well(it did after patching. Be sure to let it know its okay to get thru. First time after the patch I hadn't and it was listed same as yours'

Edit: Here I found this thread on the forums hopefully it will help 2nd post has all the ports listed

Take some comfort in the fact it usually takes me a few tries before I can get in either. It's not just you. I'm sure they are getting slammed being a Saturday AND they updated it today.
Last time I managed to get in I had no friends list AGAIN but I did manage to get.

BTW what is your user name in there Gardo so I can add you when my Friends List is actually live.

Did the link I provide at least get you with a proper green NAT to at least be able to connect properly?

in-game name is GardO71

and no, still getting the red strict:symmetric thing going on, even though forwarded ports on router and windows firewall, no idea what the hell is going on with it, never have a problem with any other game, so not sure why this is causing grief

Damn well I woulda thought those ports woulda sorted it.

Now if you actually started the game with an "offline" it will continue to keep you there just in case you hadn't figured that out.

I don't get why with the ports forwarded its still totally strict.

What OS you running and have you checked that you have UPnP running(its the NOT evil avoidance it used to be)

i've enabled the UPnP option in the router, so thats ok,

i did manage a while ago to join online, then promptly lost it lol.

yeah, i gathered the reason i couldn't join anything online yesterday was due to me selecting the offline option, so i re-installed the game again earlier, so theoretically i should be good to go.

win7 64 ulitmate btw on OS

Rgr on the OS so no worries there.

Well once you have created a profile Offline it will stay that way. If it has the Green symbol next to it in the Profile menu it's gonna stay offline forever.

I'm glad to hear you at least had a brief taste of online. I suspect it will be a bit sketchy for awhile being the weekend and them idiots at Eden patching a game on a Saturday

What was your NAT coming up as "post tips"?

Hehe it's Shawn but no biggie ;) . Glad you have finally got it sorted I will add you next time I get my friends list up and running. Also don't forget IF and WHEN they get the clubs back online(they are offline right now until they get this patches stability sorted) To apply at SimJunkies.org for the club. I have it set to Level 10 right now(means you can be on both Islands) but that won't take long to get too either way
