I've tried port forwarding and it isn't working. I've used the thread that shows up when you google port forwarding for WFTO also and no success. Please help. My brother and I enjoy playing this together. All of a sudden one day, neither of us can host and port forwarding isn't fixing it.

Not a bug

Severe lag in last level of heart of gold

Ossorus 7 years ago in General Feedback updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 7 years ago 2

Hi all,

Playing the last level of the heart of gold expansion and i simply had to just quite because the lag is too severe. I have a gaming laptop so don't think the issue is my hardware. Is this a known issue and is there any suggested fix/ETA for patch to fix?


map editor menu

mskym2 3 weeks ago in Community Forum 0

Hi, i've finally found some spare time to make a map I've been wanting to do in the war for the overworld world editor for some time now. It seemed to be working fine for the first few hours of using it, but i now have a strange issue, well, two really.

The first and most annoying is that the menu just seems to stop working after using it a few times in the editor within the first few minutes, pressing esc won't bring it up at all and it isn't off screen anywhere (I've changed resolutions, tried paege up and anything that would normally trigger a center or menu) and the only way out of the problem is to alt tab or alt+F4 which is frustrating as there is no option to save my progress.

The second problem is that when replacing stone walls with regular unclaimed stone walls the claimed walls won't go away, and also i seem to have imps i can't get rid of or write over, if it helps it also keeps telling me i have to use factions properly which I resolved in a previous save to my map but is now bugging me again to fix it despite it being correct and testable earlier..

alexander rick 2 years ago updated by Lee "Noontide" Moon (Designer & Community Manager) 1 year ago 3

I read that after the last patch the issue is fixed that the game crashes immediatly after the start with newer intel processors.
So now it's crashing on all the others?
