  1. Can't be joined by friends in games


    I am having a rather annoying issue.


    It seems that for some reason I am able to join friends in their games, but people can't join me in my games except for my roommate!


    For instance; I am able to join a friend in Dark Souls 3, but she can not join me. Besides that, invaders other players who want to harm you also never appear in my game. But my roommate is able to join my game!


    Another example, a game called Raft has the same problem. I can join 2 of my friends, but when they try to join it just loads the UI of the game but for the rest it's a black screen and they can't do anything. haven't tried this one with my roommate cause he doesn't have this game


    I have looked into:

    - UPNP, which is working on the router and my pc.

    - the svchost was blocked by Microsoft, but I have put it in the list of exceptions.

    - After running sfc /scannow in CMD, it found some corrupt files. Those are supposedly fixed.

    - Changing my IP to a dedicated one and opening NAT, this also didn't work

    - Called Ziggo Internet provider to see if it might be an issue in the Router, tried some things but that didn't help either.

    - Ran multiple antimalware programs and ran Windows Defender.

    - Updated all the drivers.

    - I currently have no other Antivirus program installed, just Windows Defender.


    I am running out of ideas of what to do. Does anybody have any idea of what I could do?

    :)

  3. Friend does NOT recive game invite (PC) (GoW4)

    Hi Will,

    We appreciate that you were able to perform some steps to resolve the issue. If you are experiencing issues with party chats on Windows 10, it can be caused by several reasons. It can be an issue with the profile and network settings on your end or the one
    who sends you an invite. Both of your settings should meet the requirements to join party chats on Xbox live.

    We have solutions below that can help you resolve the issue. These troubleshooting steps should be done on your computer and your friend's computer. Before we start, please make sure to check your NAT Type first.

    • Click the Start icon and open the Xbox app.
    • Select Settings > Network.
    • Under Network status, check the NAT type.

    Once you got the result, please refer to this
    link
    and perform the suggested solutions on your computer and your friend's computer. Follow the steps in order to get more accurate results.

    We also recommend that you check your privacy and online safety settings on Xbox.com to ensure that your profiles are allowed to join multiplayer games and parties.

    We will appreciate if you can update us the results so if these solutions won't work, we will find another way to resolve your concern.
