playstation network, black ops, bt home hub and strict nat type. Fixed!

Posted by --- on Wednesday 15 December, 2010

Ok so this is a completely random post for this blog but it’s something that’s been frustrating us for a while. We are lucky (or maybe not) in that we have 3 playstation 3’s in our house. My brothers and my DSL also have PS3’s and we have played online games in teams ever since we got them (the day of the release of the console!). Then came black ops and what a nightmare! No matter what we did we could not form a party and were constantly kicked from teh server. I looked it up and it seemed to be related to our nat type. Ours is type 2 which should allow us to play together but the game insisted we were on a strict (type 3) nat. I tried to put the main ps in dmz mode but that meant the other two were still unable to join, I tried assigning ip’s and port forwarding etc. I read page after page of people trying to fix it and tried most of the suggestions. Then today in desperation I tried this which was posted by the wonderful waddy007:

Here’s what you do – (you will need a copy of MW2 for this to work, might work on world at war but I have not tried)

Put in your copy of black ops, go to multiplayer. Go into options and then hit select. The NAT type should say ‘strict’ (bummer).

Now quit the game and go back to the playstation home screen, eject black ops and put in your copy of modern warefare 2.

Load up the game and go into mutiplayer, go to ‘play online’ and find where is says NAT type. It should say ‘OPEN’.

Now while still on this screen eject the disc which will take you again back to the playstation home screen. Put black ops back in and again go to mutiplayer, then go to options. Now cross your fingers and hit select. Your NAT type will now say OPEN! I could guess at how this works but the most important thing is it works and its really easy which is awesome lol.

Guess what? It works!  It is open! Now to test a party which can’t be done till another time because I’m in the middle of feeding and caring for a baby, making bread, scratchings, mince pies and trying to get straight after putting up the yule decs. Try this though and let me know if it works for you too. I hope it does! fingers crossed…

Posted by --- on Monday 15 December, 2008

You are observant, diplomatic and often aim to please. You are unaware of your
attractiveness and despite being uncomfortable with any form of attention, people enjoy your company. You can be impatient, stubborn and headstrong, but you are true to your  word and mature for your age, often taking care of your family and enjoying a good book over chatting with girlfriends on the phone.

I am a Geek Liason…

Posted by --- on Friday 7 November, 2008

I’ve been sidetracked again. Instead of cleaning the chicken shed, or clearing the garden or the greenhouse, my shed, the house or anything else useful, I’ve been reading old posts on The Kitchen Witch’s Blog and I found a quiz!

You are 27% geek
You are a geek liaison, which means you go both ways. You can hang out with normal people or you can hang out with geeks which means you often have geeks as friends and/or have a job where you have to mediate between geeks and normal people. This is an important role and one of which you should be proud. In fact, you can make a good deal of money as a translator.

Normal: Tell our geek we need him to work this weekend.

You [to Geek]: We need more than that, Scotty. You’ll have to stay until you can squeeze more outta them engines!

Geek [to You]: I’m givin’ her all she’s got, Captain, but we need more dilithium crystals!

You [to Normal]: He wants to know if he gets overtime.

Horoscope…00:27 (transferred)

Posted by --- on Friday 9 March, 2007


“Reward yourself for all the great things you have done for yourself and other people, dear Scorpio. You deserve to be treated like a queen, so make sure that you treat yourself as such. There are many times when you get so critical of the things you do that you end up punishing yourself unnecessarily. Give yourself a treat for being good instead of chastising yourself for being bad. At all times, however, you must remember that you are perfect just the way you are.”

This is my horoscope for today. I have highlighted sections you should note… Ok, I’m done 🙂

critical analysis part one

Today I’ve spent the whole day sitting in front of the computer researching nothing! I’ve put in terms and looked at millions of sites but haven’t achieved a thing! I need to plan this better.

On a lighter note I have updated my weemee! Go make one, its free and a fantastic distraction – I mean break – from assignment writing!
