    Can't play with Unreal engine 4, a multiplayer game, through hamachi ? "shootout example"

    So with unreal engine 3 every time i try play with hamachi to test stuff it works just fine, people can connect and such but, in the case of unreal engine 4, i package the shootout showcase demo, and my buddy can't connect this is the error so far
    https://www.dropbox.com/s/1iy12rwe1s...cting.png?dl=0 it takes no more than 1 second to pop up that.

    This is the sequence i use to test that.

    1 Package the shootout demo with the standard settings.

    2 Player 2 - Hits play that starts a listen server.

    3 Player 1 - Create a shortcut for connecting to a server with the Executable.exe 45.21.23.412 " sample hamachi ip ".

    Any help on how am i suposed to test a online game, just like you would normally do with UE3 and hamachi ? Perhaps it's something specific of the shootout demo that doesen't allow it to work. I haven't tried with other templates like the third person or more.

    Thanks in advance.

    +1 for info on connecting over the internet with that sample.
    i was trying yesterday to connect using its server browser, tried with/without steam ect... did not try hamachi
    nothing seems to work

    i do hope its not a case of opening several obscure rooter ports. in this day and age players should not have to mess with rooters to play a game.

      Hi everyone,

      I just tried this on my end and we were able to connect through the .exe using the "find game" button without any errors. Can you post this to the answerhub at http://answers.unrealengine.com in the bug reports section so we can assist you more in depth?

          for me "no servers found" pressing the find game button

          4.7.3
          firewall on
          antivirus on

          @Adam
          did you connect through the internet or LAN?
          did you open any ports or anything?
          did you have steam open?
          does it have anything to do with steam?
          any other special things we need to do or know about?

          thanks

            I connected through Internet but did not check whether or not my ports were open. Steam was open but I did not go through any steam prompts so I'm assuming it is probably not related. All I did was open the .exe and had another staff member do the same. I had him connect my system via internet. I will run a few more tests with various settings to see if I can reproduce this under different conditions.

                In addition. I'd like to know if its necessary to learn Steam API's to get multiplayer internet-connectivity working (as per UDK before)... And Greenlit if its going to be a commercial game...

                  Hi franktech,

                  You can find information on developing for steam here:

                  https://docs.unrealengine.com/latest...eam/index.html


                  I haven't been able to reproduce this at all. Can you make a post on the answerhub at http://answers.unrealengine.com in the bug reports section so we can assist more in depth with this error?

                      @Adam Davis

                      Thanks! But can you confirm that unlike UDK, its no longer necessary to use Steam or get Greenlit in order to create multiplayer games in UE4?

                        Back to the topic, i did try again to play with a mate from scotland UE4 me from spain with hamachi with a packaged build of the shootout demo with default packaging properties, with version 4.7.2

                        And the results were, unlike with the mate of poland, wich i couldn't even see his, or he could see my game Listen server going, in this case i could see his game going on the server list thanks to hamachi.

                        But still after clicking to join his game. through server list, or with the console/shortcut command open +HamachiIp, the error were the same, this is the screenshot.

                        https://www.dropbox.com/s/0hvnj0r4j9...33.19.png?dl=0 Me(Client) trying to join his game.

                        https://www.dropbox.com/s/m0zyd0zwgv...30.56.png?dl=0 he(client) trying to join mine but failing.

                        https://www.dropbox.com/s/cm0wej9dsf...08.40.png?dl=0 me seeing his game going.

                        I've been playing with hamachi other games lately as well as UDK builds and it works just fine, but UE4 does not. Can't wait to play my gameplay stuff with other people without having to mess with ports and other complicated internet stuff, please give it a go .

                          I have built my project out from the multiplayer shootout example, I did not change anything that I can see would effect its ability to connect with other players yet when one of us created a server the other couldn't find them, nothing comes up in the "find games" menu list... any ideas why this might be?

                          I am using version 4.7.6 of the engine.
                          I have forwarded port 7777 because I heard that the one UE4 uses.
                          I had firewall and anti virus on, my virus software is Avast, I don't know if that is relevant but it does seem to scan my ue4 packaged games every time I open them so I'm suspicious of it.

                            After some time, me and my comrade we tried again, this are the parameters we used so far. And it worked.

                            Version of unreal engine 4 = 4.8.3
                            Hamachi = version, latest probably.
                            Run as administrator.
                            Firewall !important here, turned off.
                            I did try port forwarding 7777 but no real effects of it were shown, so hamachi is what we tried.

                            Way to join.

                            1 Created a shortcut ! Of the multiplayer shootout demo Packaged build !, and executed a command, in this case the IP.

                            ShortcutpProperties->Target.
                            userp\Desktop\MultiplayerShootoutBuild\MultiplayerShootout.exe 25.105.18.136

                            2 Clicked it, and it load and afterwards it joined.

                            With 1.8.3 all of this shall work.


                            //notes, the browser of servers lan or internet did never work.
