• Unable to play Multiplayer
    5 replies, posted
Okay so I've owned minecraft since early alpha, and I've never once been able to play SMP. I can join servers just fine, but once I'm into the server it'll load maybe 4 chunks around the spawn and then stop working. My network monitor verifies that it is just not downloading any kind of data whatsoever, and I also experience crippling lag - warping around everywhere etc. Here's the thing; I have an 8Mb connection (ports forwarded, firewall set up to allow the executable and Java to communicate) and I can't even play on the network by myself. My friend who lives 15 minutes away has a 2Mb connection, and has supported 3 of us playing on his remote server from his connection at once. Anyone else ever encountered this problem? I'd love to get this fixed because SMP is a load better than playing single player all the time.

I dunno why my flag says US, because I'm from the UK

Facepunch tends to report the OP as being from the states, but replies are fine.
But really, it is the thing I hate most about minecraft, I am limited to the time I can play on MP and it is pissing me off to no end, I have no idea why this happens only in minecraft while every other multiplayer game works perfectly fine when playing at any given time in a server hosted in any country.
