Magicka lags
When I and my bro wonna play together, one uf us hosts a game, the other joins and we get pings of like 400-700 which makes the game unplayable. Any help?

Where do you and your friend live?
Because you can't affect the ping, if you live in Ameria and your friend in Russia (just an example).

Also, watch out for up- or downloads.

We had both everything closed, we live 20km apart from each other we tried it out with VPN, hamachi and co... nothing worked. I want my money back, this game is hilarious but we can't play it. ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥.

well, if you can't play with your friend, play with someone else. also, don't ask for your money back. this is steam, you'll never get it back.
You'd only get it back, if the game wouldn't work at all.

Also, Hamachi and those other programs usually worse the situation in Magicka.


Also try:

  • Open these ports:
    • 7331 UDP/TCP
    • 27000 to 27050 UDP/TCP
    • 4380 UDP

  • Turn off Hamachi, Tunngle or other programs if they're running

  • Deactivate all network adapters except the one you're using to connect to the internet:
    • in the Systray left-click the internet symbol (should look like a bar chart)
    • open the network center
    • on the left, click on Adapter Settings
    • then select the adapters and deactivate them!

  • open the Firewall for Magicka


And check, if your router's firmware is up-to-date.

Maybe if you join politics and get a better internet connection for your country as this is clearly the problem. I recommend you go to the local city hall and assasinate your local councillor. No one will miss him because he is a minor part of the community and politics. From there work your way up until your the leader of your country and then you can play magicka with your friend if you still want to at the age of 62. This is the solution either do it or do not do it. YOU must choose if it is worth it
Mr Omega strikes again!

MR OMEGA thanks for the helpful comment. It was not even a good troll, but still I appreciate your contribution, now go back to your little trollyard :) thanks to w!z@rD [AT], it works now.
