Local play through Hamachi doesn't work since 1.11.3 - Katsono - 05-29-2021 10:21 AM

Hello,

I just updated to the last version today and for a reason I can't identify, the settings I was using to play MHP3rd online through Hamachi do not work any more.

I have followed the guide written here : https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp/wiki/How-to-play-multiplayer-games-with-PPSSPP

Using Hamachi to emulate a local network, I am the one hosting it and it worked before the update. I use my own IP and my friend uses the one in Hamachi to connect to my ad hoc server.

The only difference I can pinpoint now is that when I connect to the guild hall, there's a gray message about connection which I'm pretty sure was not here before and a WLAN Channel setting in the PPPSSPP menu. I've tried changing the channel from auto to another number and told my friend to do the same, it doesn't work.

Neither of us seem to be able to meet people on an online server like myneighborsushicat.com either. I don't have any error in the logs though and I didn't find an issue in the github either regarding this.

Thanks for any help!

Hello! I think myneighborsushicat.com does not work anymore so if you plan to play PPSSPP on a public server I recommend you just download Amultios.
I am not sure why Hamachi does not work but you can try a different VPN llike ZeroTier.

Is this gray message appeared on screen or in the Log console? What is the message saying? (which could be an important factor to identify the issue)

Try using the latest dev build from https://buildbot.orphis.net/ppsspp/ and Reset/Restore PPSSPP's settings to default from System settings, and then follow the guide again https://github.com/hrydgard/ppsspp/wiki/How-to-play-multiplayer-games-with-PPSSPP

Btw, when using VPN and you're hosting the adhoc server, all players (including you) will need to use your VPN IP, don't use "localhost" also make sure all players use the same Port Offset (this Port Offset settings might be reset to 0 if you were recently upgrading PPSSPP from a quite old version)
Also make sure all players are using the same version of PPSSPP, since there might be changes that could make new version incompatible with old version.

I actually thought about it recently but won't playing over a VPN would increase overhead? and as I understand the overhead of PPSSPP networking is already high lol.
So basically playing over public server might be more beneficial in certain ways.

Depends on the VPN, some VPN were designed to reduce the latency for multiplayer games, for example WTFast were designed for gaming.
They can reduce the latency by routing the connection within their own network which are spreads all over the world to get the best/fastest route from client side to the game server.
