In Progress LAN multiplayer doesn´t working

Users who are viewing this thread


Hi guys, I have an issue with playing a multiplayer through LAN with my girlfriend. We used to play without any problems and then suddenly the game stop working. It comes up with the message "you have been banned from server" when we tryed to connect to host game on one PC with another and vice versa. It cames up also with the same results when we reinstall game, connect PC´s directly to each other, changing the router. Then I found some articles here about server issues of TaleWorld with multiplayer in general. Could this be linked also to LAN games? I know this was up more than 6 years ago, when many people complain about their home LAN parties games asking for keys. We both have steam based games.

I have been trying to help other person with similar problem. This now suggests there might be some issue in the other (Taleworlds) end. Official tech support might be needed.


I haven't figured out a solution to this issue, but I do have a workaround.

For whatever reason, it's impossible to join a game being hosted on the same network, dedicated server or not. This is true even for a dedicated server being hosted on the same computer.

You can still host a dedicated server, port forward, and have it be accessible to friends on different networks at different locations. In order to be able to play with those friends--to connect to your own server--the only workaround I've found is to host a dedicated server on a separate computer and port forward like normal; then on the computer running my game, I use a VPN to trick the game into thinking I'm on another network.

I use Nord ( to do this, it's very simple--just install the windows application, run it, and click on any country. You should be able to connect to your server as normal. Unfortunately Nord isn't free; this might work with other VPN's but I haven't tested any so I'm not sure. For LAN parties, everyone can use the same Nord account to connect to a dedicated server being run on a separate computer.

Hope this helps!
