"Cant join game" curse, how to override AOE3 ports?
Hi, i just pickup aoe3, and cant play online becouse of the "Cant join game" curse. Tried forwarding ports, but my router dont let me forward from 2300 to 2303 (something about reserverd ports, tried forwarding 2304 to 2340, but nothing happened). So, i think that my only chance is to override the ports that AOE3 need to work, but i dont know how to do it. I created the user.cfg file, and writte the line OverridePort="2310", but i dont know what to do next!. If someone can assist me it would be awesome. (sorry if my spelling is wrong, my english is very limited).

First, You need to put the numbers in [ square brackets ] like this
Second: you have to put the user.cfg into the "Startup" folder.
Third: You can enter OverridePort=[2310] in the game.cfg aswell (should be in the Startup folder of the game aswell)

If it worked out for You, tell us here.

What works for us alot of the times restart the game and steam i often play with 3 friends and sometimes there is 1 that cant join a other person that also joins my game it sounds a bit strange and it is... but restarting steam always does the trick to fix it and then we can play without a problem :P untill the next day atleast haha
