Hey guys, I ran into a huge problem last week. My motherboard dyed, so I got a new one, installed it, reinstalled windows, installed mw2 played MP, and everything is fine, so I decided to host a mod using MW2 host tool 1.3 and it always says (when i click F3) "Finding more players to balance teams", after that I've checked ports and everything (My NAT is open). Here's some more info:
Processor : Intel Pentium D 3.2 ghz (2 cores)
3 Gb of ram (DDR2)
Nvidia GeForce 8500 gt (1776mb of vram)
Game runs at around 50-70 FPS, at all times.
With uTorrent running
__Ports which are forwarded___
On Both 1500 192.168.1.125 MW2
On Both 3005 192.168.1.125 MW2
On Both 3101 192.168.1.125 MW2
On Both 27000-27050 192.168.1.125 MW2
On Both 28960 192.168.1.125 MW2
Before the motherboard change I could host whenever i wanted.
My router is Linksys WRT54GL (running Tomato custom firmware)
UPnP and NAT-PMP are enabled, also NAT loopback is set to All.
DHCP Server (in router settings) is disabled (I tryed with it enabled, no difference)
When I try to host uTorrent is off.
I've had some succsess to host using
command, but it messes up the game (everybody sees me as enemy, but only one team can kill me) and after that game, regardless if i use the host tool, when the countdown ends it still says "Finding more players to balance teams"(even if the server is full).
xblive_privatematch 1; xpartygo; xblive_privatematch 0; sv_maxPing 200; sv_kickBanTime 3600; party_hostmigration 0
Here is an colsole_mp.log of me starting a game, choosing a lobby, pressing F5 and F3 a couple of times then getting "Finding more players to balance teams"
I also tried using
party_connecttimeout 1;party_minplayers 1;badhost_endGameIfISuck "0";party_iamselected "1"
with same results.
party_hostmigration 0; party_connecttimeout 1; badhost_endgameifisuck 0; party_minplayers 2
Help me please or i will become like Ed -->
