Why would their port be random?

I don't think it's random. It's more of a specific range, around 14000 - 14500. But we won't really know until we hear what CC/Shanda actually says. My ticket sent thru the cherry messenger is still pending. I'm just guessing that they might not know what I'm asking for about the ports or they're just gonna say that its not allowed.

Not [color=#ff0000;]their[/color] port - random ports are opened on [color=#ff0000;]your[/color] computer (=source), while DN ports (=destination) are well known and predefined (but I didn't bother to go look for them).

Let's use the mentioned DN port 14300 for example.

  • When you first start the game, your computer looks for free local port
  • Computer finds free local port 30000, and connects to DN server on port 14300.
  • Next time you start the game, port 30000 might already be occupied by some other application, so your computer looks for next free port.
  • Computer finds free local port 30011, and connects to DN server on port 14300.

(Actually opening local ports is not entirely random, the system just uses the first next available port, but this doesn't really matter for our examples. What matters is that local port is not a fixed value, but changes independently of the application you're trying to run)

It's true that some games/apps require also specific local ports to be accessible, but this game is not one of them.

Sad how you dont actually go further research.

This game is rather more in need of a better processer than upgrading your graphic card

I've got, 2nd generation Intel iCore 3 processor, 4gb RAM and a 1GB Nvidia Cuda Video card on my computer. You think I still need better specs? Do tell. I'd love to hear to what you have to say.

I think the game could use a vsync option in its settings menu. The framerate feels unstable. Not sure if the laptop I'm using right now only experiences it, but I really think it could use some tweaking on that part.

Erm, very bad choice to put Game booster in there, because it actually screws your pc than it does good.

It could be true on some computer settings but I've had no issues with it ever since I started using it last year. What it does is just terminate some processes and programs running in the background.

Excellent guide Xiee!I really hope this helps my constant dc/lag problems. However, I am having trouble configuring my TCP/IP setting. I followed the guide in the link you posted (Windows 7) and changed the DNS server to globe DNS which I  had 20ms ping(is it good?) but then after confirming the setting I could not connect to the internet. I tried opening my browser but I was not connected. Did I miss a step?

EDIT: I tried using a different DNS server and it worked :D Thanks a lot for this.

I can't understand the DNS thing, If I click the option Use the follwing ip address, DO i just need to put the numbers you gave on the ip address box?what about the subnet mask and default gateway??

Well, you might want to put in your IP address

Subnest will automatically be included

Default gateway would be your Router's ip?

 

DNS would be the one He stated, id suggest google dns 8.8.8.8 or 8.8.4.4

Sometimes the local DNS servers get swamped as well. Try using Google's DNS, its more reliable.

DNS servers were made to sort of fetch information faster, in theory it can boost your speed. But this isn't 100% true. Some DNS servers will increase your speed and others nothing else.

When I use the Google DNS, it made my disconnection problem even worser FYI.
