I'm behind a router that can't be configured, and so I can't set up port forwarding. Anyway, I'm trying to test and play my map, and I don't know where to go to find someone that will help me host it. I have a friend, but he's usually busy doing other stuff. Any suggestions?



None.

It's not my router. I live in an apartment where the Internet connection is provided to me. The ports for Battle.net are open, but I share an external IP address with many other people.



None.

The first post seems to suggest that you can't forward the necessary ports, the 2nd says you already have.
In case port forwarding is your problem you can change the bnet port in your registry to 80. This is the port used for browsing the internet, thus it's safe to assume its open.

Just so you know, most ISPs block port 80 inbound because they don't want people hosting websites from their house.

To get people to host for you, join a clan, such as RCDF ;D

Is there a better one?

Sorry, I forgot to reply. I found out that a nearby computer lab will let me host games. I just take Starcraft on a USB drive and plug it in. I used this one loader program to put it in windowed mode, but I'm not even sure if it was necessary.

Thank you for the help.

RdeRenato -- If someone can help me, it will make me very happy xd
[2020-3-31. : 4:55 pm]
RdeRenato -- they are right. I don't know how to describe my level but it is difficult for two things: 1. crazy enemies 2. multiple defensive points
[2020-3-31. : 11:01 am]
Sie_Sayoka -- both because of low skill and population on west

Sie_Sayoka -- tbh a lot of the korean maps are impossible to play with pubs

jjf28 -- forcing players to be quicker means they'll have to multi-task more/up the APMs and use less safe approaches or have gotten the approaches down to an art so they can perform them quickly without much time to think

jjf28 -- I'd say best way to increase difficulty is to make the enemy units behave smarter, followed by forcing humans to move quicker (timers, or some mechanism forcing them forward), followed by beefing numbers/stats

jjf28 -- a huge part of special forces is game knowledge, mapping out the spawn timings, what triggers different traps, what units combine into others, they're definitely not intended to be friendly games

lil-Inferno -- RdeRenato
RdeRenato shouted: people, how do you do to verify a super difficult level if you play bad? :(
get someone better than you to play it

MTiger156 -- Sadly, I've often seen the exact opposite happen. "Special Forces" maps typically try to kill the entire team within the first 60 seconds... try to stay away from that approach.
