I think it is time for this problem to be treated with the seriousness it deserves.
“Unable to connect to the host. Verify that the connection settings are correct. If you still cannot connect, contact the room host and verify that the host is properly configured with the external port forwarded.”
I create a public room, nobody can enter.
My friend creates a public room, no one can enter.
My other friend creates a public room, no one can enter.
We try to enter the public rooms of strangers who do not use a password, and in many it gives the same error, while in others we manage to enter normally. The rooms that give error are the same for us, and the ones that work too.
There is clearly a problem where so much users are unable to create function rooms, perhaps even most.
We all followed each of the instructions carefully, and I read several topics just like mine in search of a solution, but none of the suggestions worked and neither did I see any of the authors of the topics saying that something suggested worked for them.
We were able to play online normally in other emulators, like Project64 and Dolphin.
We can even play online at Citra using strangers’ rooms, but the games have a lot of lag, I think because there are a lot of people in the room (even if the game itself is just me and my friend), since in other emulators we don’t have any lag problems. Do you know how to confirm if the number of people in the room or whoever hosts it influences something? Or would the lag be the same if I were the host and we had just me and my friend in the room? if you tell me that the lag would be equal, I give up on solving the problem and forget about Citra for online matches.
I will not describe my settings and my .log file as it is a collective problem that occurs with the most different personal technical information. The only point in common is that everyone I know used Windows 10 when they created the rooms, so perhaps the problem just doesn’t occur with anyone using other operating systems.
Thank you in advance for all the support!
