I am not certain if this is the right place to address this, however, I've been trying to play Dissidia Duodecim with someone, we make use of Coldbird and both have the right emulator settings and DMZ enabled.
We can get online just fine, but once in the lobby, my friend is unable to see me, while I can see him, challenging him won't do anything, the same goes for group battle, except when I join his room, then it'll try to start a battle, and that's the only moment where his game will actually recognize me, but it gets stuck while trying to prepare for the battle.
We use the same and latest version of PPSSPP, both of us appear as players in coldbird in dissidia, and use the same settings, and version of the game, we also both have firewall completely disabled to make sure that's not the cause.
Has anyone had this issue before and if so, any idea how to solve it?
Thanks in advance.
(if this is not the right place for this, please point me to the place where it's supposed to be)

I'd say:
1. Recheck if DMZ is enabled, both for you and your friend.
2. Click on Change MAC Address inside PPSSPP Network settings, just to make sure your MAC numbers are different.
3. Recheck if another Firewall isn't blocking your PPSSPP's, like ZoneAlarm or PeerBlock, or a built-in Anti-Virus Firewall, like Avast's. Try copying your PPSSPP emulator folder to another location and re-allowing it in Windows Firewall (check both Local and Private boxes) when asked the first time you attempt to play a game online.
4. Try an earlier build (like v0.9.9.1-1368-g303b92d) instead. It's known MH games got broken on newer builds, it could happen to other games.
5. server sometimes becomes unstable, you can confirm this by leaving the status page ( open while hosting a game. Sometimes you'll see your game hosted but a few seconds/minutes later, it'll be gone, and the page may return XML errors as well. Also, if you try to host the game again you may experience a delay while joining/creating a lobby room, this is due to instability. The only way would be to contact coldbird himself to try and fix it.
6. Unstable connection between you and your friends, this could be due to very high ping latency or weak wi-fi signal, or even ongoing repairs in your/your friends ISP.

You're going to need DMZ enabled on your router to be able to play on
Even without DMZ enabled the status page will still recognize and count you but you won't be able to see any other players. Imagine here in this forum, you'd still be able to post but no one would be able to read it unless you had DMZ enabled, it's basically what's happening to you. if you've enabled DMZ already, then check if your Firewall isn't blocking PPSSPP. Finally, do try playing online using Windows OS, since some games don't work well online with Android yet.
Also, the only DBZ game which works online is DBZ Tenkaichi Tag Team, the Budokai games don't work online on PPSSPP emulator as of now.

Now that i figured it out i can now join a room you just need to change the protocol to UDP but still cant see people
but im trying this experiment to test port forwarding instead of dmz

You probably don't have DMZ enabled in your router, it's required to play on, or else you won't be able to see any other players, even if the status page does recognize you. If you do, however, maybe the other players are trying to play without DMZ and so they're getting recognized, when in fact they're with DMZ disabled, meaning there's actually no one online there, something similar to GHOSTS.

Also, if you're playing MH games online, please use this version:
Windows 32bit:
Windows 64bit:

Versions above this one introduced a bug where all the Gathering Halls will be full even when they're empty. As far as i know, still isn't fixed to date, so please use this old version just for playing MH games online without any problems (don't forget to disable the "Fast Memory" option inside PPSSPP's System>Settings as well!).

and noone seems to want to help me out hopefully you can, hope to hear from you?


For Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus online please use ONLY this version, it was fixed by user onelight:
This game will only work online with this version. Also, if the game becomes slow online, it's because of high ping latency.


I've been away for long.
I'm noticing as of late is becoming really unstable, the server is losing connection every 5 minutes or so and the server status page is unstable as well, resetting all ongoing games in a short interval.
Also, if you try rehosting them, sometimes they get stuck forever on connection to the server, it's really unstable, not sure what's going on but it would be best to have a say with coldbird himself ( or ( about these issues and politely ask him to try fixing them.

@lumune can you help me on the aztech DSL5018EN(1T1R) router im from phillipines btw i cant even find it on its settings
