Can't move in online Coop, even when hosting

As I already wrote in other threads I've had troubles getting this game to work in online coop with 2 friends of mine.

We managed to be able to play the game about twice, after hours of trial & error; several evenings we just couldn't make it past the initial black screen.

After the last 2 patches, the black screen issue didn't happen anymore, though.

Let's call myself A, my first friend B and the other friend C.
We all have high end configs, so low fps issues are non existant.
We all did port forwarding.
We all disabled Windows Firewall (no other FW softwares were on).

Usually B hosts (he also has a 100/10 fiber connection btw).
A and C connect to B.
Most of the times (everytime, lately) we experience issues as we get into the game.
Very often C can't move.
Sometimes A can't move.
Other times, A moves itself AND C at the same time.
On rarer occasions we had jerky or very limited movements and similar issues.

We tried changing hosts but nothing changed.
So we run tests with subsets of the three of us.

B hosts, only A connects, everything worked flawlessly.
A hosts, B connects, so far so good!
We even tried playing a level and no issues were to be found.

C hosts, A connects... C can't move.
A hosts, C connects... C can't move.

So, we had kinda narrowed down the issue to C.
This is confirmed by the fact that if he creates a 1-player Coop match, he STILL can't move, despite being the host and only player.

He's going to give the game a full reinstallation, just to try, but I was wondering if anyone else has had this problem and how to fix it.

UPDATE: reinstalling didn't chance a thing. Still same issue.

Thanks a lot for the detailed report!
If player C could send an output log from an attempt where he couldn't control anything we'd be very grateful. Including the system specs in the mail to would also help a lot.

He reinstalled the game and he seems to have fixed his issue, at least when he attempted to play on his own.

We'll soon make a full test with the 3 of us and I'll report again on this thread!

Thanks for the support.

Any news on whether it's working in multiplayer?

Sorry, we haven't tried yet :(
I'll try to do it within this weekend

Ok we tried playing again and it was all good this time!
Reinstalling definitely fixed it for my friend.

Thx for the support.
