Persistent problem with server hosting
I'm posting this thread since I have been experiencing the same problem for almost a year now.
I love add-on campaign maps, and my absolute favorite is Questionable Ethics. The thing is, I can almost never host a game. First of all the only 2 hosting options that work while creating the game are: Best Available and Local Host.
The problem? Well, I CAN host locally, but 90% of the people that join will end up having a ping of 150~300, and of course causing them to leave. But whats driving me nuts is that if I choose Best Available it will keep loading forever. I have to CTR+ALT+DEL and shut down the left 4 dead process. Very RARELY, it will work. But as I said, I'm tired of trying to host the game 20 times for 1 to work. Can you help me?
