    Lonely PC Blues

    Post by callipygias on Wed Jan 09, 2013 6:51 pm

    Friend messaged me he got the pc version about a week ago. I told him to let me know if he got any online action. 3 or 4 days later he sent, "NOBODY is playing on pc."

    Thing is, according to Amazon sales there are many, many people playing on pc.

    Right now I'm at the end of an extremely leisurely playthrough on pc. I'm human the entire time, and I leave my white sign down everywhere I go. I'm at the last bonfire of Duke's Archives, and I got so excited when I got there and couldn't use the fire. Finally, an invader!!! That was 35 minutes ago. Bonfire has never kicked back on, and no invasions.

    I'm so surprised that pc sales continue to go well for Dark Souls. Though maybe new players don't know any better, and are focused on PvE. When I was new I would've been thrilled by going an entire playthrough in human form with no invasions.

    Anyway, I'm gonna do another all-human playthrough with a different sl, see if I have any luck.

    Without forwarding ports you are not going to get any online action.

    I'm pretty positive my modem isn't doing any port forwarding and I get heaps of online action on PC.

    Why would you make this your signature in a Dark Souls community forum? It might as well say "I am a troll."

    Oh, and for the record, long from now Dark Souls will probably be remembered as one of the most brilliant video games ever made, while Skyrim will be mostly remembered for its few flash-in-the-pan memes.

    Don't take to much offence to him. He's always like that. I have no idea why. But I've commented on it before and seen him be "mean" for no reason quite a few times in the past. I really don't think he's trying to be an *** or anything.

    Cool. Let me know how it works. Play close attention to make sure you properly set the correct "tcp/udp/both" depending on which ports it is. It's specifically done like that differently for each port for a reason.

    Also, I'm just trying to be helpful.
