the current buddy server is a beta version ... sometime it works and sometime it doesn't ...:-(

We plan to release a more robust version in May

Do you want to try it with me?

Let me know

Yeah, waffles and me were the ones trying to connect together. When he hosted the dive would up on the list, but I only saw a ping of 'x' and would get a connection failed message after he allowed me to enter.

When I tried hosting I'd get the message that Waffles was trying to join, I'd allow him. Then a few seconds later I'd get the message that his connection failed. He says that he was able to see a ping when I hosted.

Seeing as I'd like to jump into the pond with my buddies wolf and waffles, I'm looking forward to your "robust" version in May.

As it stands, what is the maximum number of divers in a hosted dive? I was looking around and didn't see where it was written. (doesn't mean it's not there though)

Each buddy dive is limited to 8 divers

Do you want to try buddy diving with me ?

We are designing a "De-Bug" tool to help us understand what is going on ..... some users can buddy dive with no problems, other can not buddy dive at all .... and in other cases users sometime can buddy dive and sometime they can't ...

Would you be interested to help us debugging this? We could send you our tool (it is a program we wrote) and some instructions

Let me know

Hi Ediver,
I would be glad to help you debug. I fall into the sometimes can/sometimes can't category ;)
