As I have been a fan of WW1 since its release and enjoy a good multi-player game I put together this guide. The guide is organized into two parts; part one deals with router and security configurations and part two deals with the multi-player game set up with some tips.
There are many different combinations of ISPs', router and LAN configurations. This guide will not work under all circumstances, but I think that many, or most will be able to use it with success.
The settings offered here have been tested many times over. The information was compiled from both practical experience and from much online research. It may be that some will still need a VPN such as Hamchi to be able to play online, but if you can avoid that, why not? Odds are that you can do it yourself. You do not need to be an IT pro to complete the configuration guide-it can be done in less than an hour.
The WW1 online gaming community is only just beginning. As more players become involved there will be more information as to what works under various situations. If we share that information, we can create a great online community to fully enjoy this game.
Eddit:To make this as simple and fast as possible, just try port forwarding alone, along with the required AV and firewall settings. If you do not use a router, then only the firewall and AV need to be adjusted. It just may be that is all you need. Those 2 areas can be modified in 10 minutes. If that does not work, then add the other steps.
I hope you find this helpful.
