If you can’t seem to be able to host a multiplayer game of Magicka you might need to set up port forwarding on your router.
Here is some information on doing just that directly from Steam.
Required Ports for Steam
Which ports do I need to open on my router or firewall for Steam?
Your network must be configured to allow Steam access to the following ports (in order from highest to lowest priority for QoS users):
UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive (Game client traffic)
UDP 27015 to 27030 inclusive (Typically Matchmaking and HLTV)
TCP 27014 to 27050 inclusive (Steam downloads)
Dedicated or Listen Servers
TCP 27015 (SRCDS Rcon port)
Steamworks P2P Networking and Steam Voice Chat
UDP 3478 (Outbound)
UDP 4379 (Outbound)
UDP 4380 (Outbound)
Additional Ports for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Multiplayer
UDP 1500 (outbound)
UDP 3005 (outbound)
UDP 3101 (outbound)
Many university networks and proxies block required ports for Steam operation – please consult your network administrator to ensure the required ports are open if you are using a university network or a proxy. Ports required for Steam can not be re-mapped to HTTP or reconfigured to a custom port range.
Ok well the Chapter 1 guide/walkthrough has been completed. Starting on Chapter 2. Hopefully more updates coming soon. Been real busy as of late. Thanks for visiting Magicka Tips!
Oh yeah, translations are available if you select from the available languages in the right “Translations” menu. If you have a language you’d like to see, please leave a comment and I’ll see what’s available.
Also I saw this video on youtube of these cute girls. Just wanted to share. Love the accents.
Well our webhost switched data centers so they recommend we not update the site for a bit because it could have gone out of synch. The migration seemed to be successful so updates are pending. Thanks for checking out Magicka Tips.
This bug was driving me nuts. On level eight there’s a section where you have to blow up a bunch of red barrels to get to the cave section. In coop mode if you blow up the barrels the game insta crashes for everyone except the host. (This is why the game desperately needs drop in/drop out functionality).
Until they patch this bug the best thing to do is teleport past the barrels. Only one guy has to do it. At that point you’ll all be warped to the next section.
Side note: But did the barrel thing remind anyone of Borderlands?
