I have been trying to invite people to my server today and haven't been able to do so. Invites I send sometimes take 10 minutes before they receive them. I have an open NAT and good connection. restarted my router, hard started xbox, everything and can't do it. I can play in my own MP or Private servers with just me. Yesterday it was just fine, I just couldn't trade items with my friends without putting items in a chest since they disappear once dropped. Now it seems thats fixed and now I have the issue with invites.

First question. What speed is your internet.
Second, are you wired or wireless?

Something else to try is to make sure your modem/router is allowing the ports properly.

Going to move this to the Console support forum, since PC Servers & Community is the completely wrong place.

I have a private game going wich is at day 40 now and i play on with a friend. No big problems besides a few crashes before the patch but now he is unable to join my game.. even more, any multiplayer game i invite him to. I have rebooted xbox and modem, still same problem. But he can make a new game and i can join no problem.. anyone with the same problem here or any ideas on how to fix it?

I've got the same issue. Even had it tell my friend who tried to rejoin mind that my map was full. No one else was on and it only had 5 people saved to it lol. It's left only solo gaming for me till this gets fixed though a friend of mine in England can join other maps and have people join his except those of us in the USA. Not sure if it for sure is a location issue but the only ones who can't join his game are his American friends.

Exact same issues. Might as well delete the game now, don't need another single player game sorry.

Same problem, wouldn't be so bad if the makers acknowledged there was a problem, and gave a time it would be fixed by. It's a shame coz wanted to play this game for awhile but new games coming soon, might not get back on this in time

Here the same!

Multiplayer had works, but with the new Update it don't works.

I can't join any random game and a game with my firends, also.

They fix one problem and make hundred of new problems! :livid:

I've run into this as well. 1 out of the 3 of us seems to always not be able to join until I hard restart my Xbox (Im the host)

Eventually they get in though.

When it happens, it takes about 8 minutes for that person to get past the "waiting for server" message.

Sadly there is no help to be found here either. It was the patch that broke it for xbox players. Pro tip : A STICKY on the subject might lead people to post there.

Don't waste your time messing with your internet me and my large group have already done all that and nothing worked. One look at the forum clearly shows it was the patch that broke it. It worked fine before apart from the crashes and now all of a sudden after a patch none of us can connect. Yeah I'm sure looking at our internet connection helps..

"Something else to try is to make sure your modem/router is allowing the ports properly"

How do you do this and what are the proper ports. WhAt is the recommended connection speed?

ThAnks

These ports must be open for Xbox Live to work:
Port 88 (UDP)
Port 3074 (UDP and TCP)
Port 53 (UDP and TCP)
Port 80 (TCP)
Port 500 (UDP)
Port 3544 (UDP)
Port 4500 (UDP)

Look up how to do " port forwarding" on your router. Before you go there though go into network settings and see if your NAT type is (open). If it is you are good to go already. This wont fix your issue though because the patch broke the game.

The recommended internet speed for xbox one is 150 mb.

Merged all these threads into one as they are the same issue.
