How To: Host a Seal Hunter Game
« on: July 30, 2010, 08:04:16 PM »
First some technical mumbo-jumbo: since Seal Hunter doesn't support NAT punchthrough just yet, in the event that you're behind a router you have to manually forward the game port that Seal Hunter uses.

  • Find your router model in the list on http://portforward.com/. If you can't find your exact model, try one that is somewhat similar. (Also, be sure to click "Click here to skip this advertisement..." in the top right if prompted.)
  • Since Seal Hunter is obviously not in their list of applications, click "Default Guide". It's the last paragraph, I'm sure you'll be able to find it!
  • Follow the instructions. Yes, this might be a bit tricky, but it's something that you only need to do once.
  • When the guide tells you to type in a port or a range of ports alongside a protocol, you want to use port 33678, protocol UDP or UDP/TCP. 33678 is the default port for hosting games - you can choose your own port on the Start Game tab inside the game, if you like, but the default will work just fine.
  • You're all done! Go host some games.

If it still doesn't work, feel free to create a topic in this section, and we'll try to help you further!
