    Coop Problems / Advice or Help would be great

    Post by Holzmichel on Wed May 08, 2013 5:17 pm

    Hello!
    My name is Holzmichel
    GWFL: Olle Holzmichel
    Well i have an issue with coop.
    I am using DSCfix and i thought its something like insta summoning BUT and this is a very big BUT (^^) I just cant figure out how it works . . .
    I have been trying with friends all day, we were soul level 25 and soul lvl 18 but it didnt work, then we tried another character (I was a hollow he was Human ^^) in Anor Londo in the Ariamis Painting- House up there we tried to summon eachother (LvL 38 and 50) but again it didnt work.
    We were just not able to see the summon signs. . . it was terrible since we were really looking forward to playing together.
    But is there anything we can do?
    They just don see my signs and neither do I see theirs.

    If you got some useful information or at least something that helps I BEG YOU post it ^^
    We are in deep trouble since one of us is a "Noob" and he really needs the help

    Best Wishes

    Welcome to the Forums


    Dark Souls on the PC doesn't really want to comply. I think it may be because you guys are out of level range, but the 25 and 18 should see eachother just fine (as long the 18 summons the 25, the 25 *shouldn't* be able to summon the 18). If possible, you can try matching your levels and that should fix the problem, but otherwise you may be out of luck as GFWL is kind of hit and miss.

    Good luck summoning each other.

    first of all, basic summoning rules
    - only the summoner (guy who tries to summon) must be alive and
    - the boss in the area where the summoner tries to summon has to be alive too!
    for the summoned person it doesn't matter if human or hollow, under certain circumstances it may be better if summoned person is hollow.
    the soul level (sl) ranges you mentioned should be fine for both cases.
    dscfix seems to work pretty well for summoning, but it doesn't compensate a bad setup of your router/gfwl. if logged in, to go the gfwl menu -> settings -> network settings and check what your NAT type is and most important if UPNP is enbaled....these 2 features are essential for coop/online play to work.
    very good read from the steam forums: http://steamcommunity.com/app/211420/discussions/0/882962698499356788/

    NAT moderate is okay, but UPNP not available/using isn't okay. dscfix won't help you in that case.
    you can either enable UPNP or manually "port forward" the ports gfwl needs to work in your router settings.

    i would go for the UPNP solution as this is usually easier to do. check this link:

    sorry for all the technical stuff, but there isn't anything else i can do for you atm. you have to fix these things if you want proper online play. once you have done it, everything should work as intended and especially with the dscfix mod playing coop should work just fine. if you got any questions add me on gfwl and just contact me when i'm online, gfwl-id: sku777

    good luck!

    Are you still encountering problems? It's obviously your connection, did you fix the upnp problem? Or did you port forward?

    and then "disconnected from friend . . . " before i can even invade or be summoned ProstrationProstrationProstration
