Okay so I use this software called Gameranger to play my game Age of Empires (conqueror’s expansion) and usually , there is this issue that happens. If your name appears in italic while you’re in a room which you’ve hosted or joined , you will basically be kicked off because an italic player is never able to actually enter a game and play it. The situation is something like this :
A thing to notice here is that although I’m the non-italic one (FateDontExist) , it’s the other way around for everyone else. As it’s a common gameranger issue , I’ve done a fair bit of googling and trying various “fixes” but nothing works.
I have been playing on Gameranger for over 3 months , and I have faced this problem in the past , but I was usually able to solve it using a VPN ( that’s the fix that no longer works)
A common fix on the internet is port forwarding your router , but I never used a router in the first place , I only use my mobile hotspot to connect to internet on my PC. I tried disabling , re-enabling the firewall , changing the DNS server manually , reset my network adapter , I even reset the PC . But nothing worked.I am still italic in all the room I join . I was able to become non italic by simply using a vpn client but it doesn’t help me anymore. I have no clue what to do anymore. I have ran out of ideas. Can someone help me come up with a fix ? And please understand that I can’t afford to get a new connection altogether or switch to wired internet.
Also , I tried this with two sim cards, i.e. 2 ISPs , and the same problem. I wanna add that this problem went away on both these ISPs on using a vpn client , but not anymore. What can be done ?
Also , if you need any more details , I’ll be happy to give them to you. Also this is my first question on here so apologies for any noob mistakes.Thank you.
EDIT : To the one downvoter , care mentioning why you downvoted ? All I’m trying is to fix my problem. If you needed more details you could’ve asked for it. Or if there’s anything wrong with the way I have posted this , just tell me before blatantly downvoting like that. I have already said I can improve the question or provide more details.
