Sometimes the pings show up as ??? and I am unable to join those games.

That means that the player hosting that game hasn't forwarded their ports or that their firewall is blocking Seal Hunter. It's a problem on their side, not on yours, sorry.

My ports are forwarded correctly. Some of my friends can join the game that I created, but some of them can not join.
Something interesting there.

I forwarded my port and successfully connected with my friends once. But the next time we tried, we couldn't, and I didn't change any of my settings from last time so forwarding the port doesn't seem to be all the problems.

Yea, someone joined my game earlier and we played for a while.. later on I was hosting again, and I quit and saw his game in the lobby.  When I joined he said he was hoping I'd come because he wasn't able to join my game this time.  So it seems like there might be some type of intermittent connection issue, good luck with this one Toumy  =P

I will need to add a bit of debug output to the log for v1.01 to stand any chance of seeing if there's a bug related to this or not. Alternatively, it might be a network library bug, in which case I'll be waiting for RakNet 2.0 and hope that sorts stuff out.

Maybe a little suggestion in the new game menu will help people to know is they are able to host game correctly:

nothing to say...

People just need to figure it out for themselves, it really isn't that difficult to set up your ports - it isn't for Linksys anyway, and that is one of the main wireless providers.
