Fantom Legends posted a topic in Bug Reports, CrashesSummary: 1.0.3 - Windows 10 - Unable to Cross-Platform Play with Xbox One Players Description: Every time I try to join my friends on Xbox One from the Windows 10 Store version, it refuses to join and gives me the error "FAILED TO JOIN: COULD NOT FIND SESSION." I have tried opening all of the ports the game uses, reinstalling the game, and adding an exception for this game to my firewall but still no success. Is this a problem that I'm only having or is everyone experiencing this? Platform: Windows 10 Store Version / Build Number: 1.0.3 Specifications: OS: Windows 10 Home x64 | v. 1809 | Build 17763.316 CPU: Intel i5 4460 3.20GHz GPU: GTX 760 2GB RAM: HyperX 2x4GB DDR4 2666MHz Drive: WD Blue 1TB
I have been playing on xbox/win10 for a few months and have been smitten by this game. I'm trying to get my friends to join in on the fun. The first friend I got to buy the game got it on Steam. Come to find out you cannot play with people on Steam with the game purchased on the Windows Store. Needless to say, I was a little disappointed. I realize dedicated servers are on the way and that will assist with bridging the gaps between players of various platforms. While I do not know all the details of this feature, in the discord server it sounded as if there will still be limitations such as session persistence and things of that nature. When logging into the forum here I was met with the screenshot uploaded below and it solidified the idea that I was having. So my idea would be having a SES/Astroneer account that as the focal point for all player to player interactions in the game that can link to your MS and Steam accounts. There are other games out there that do similar things, Epic/Fortnite or Minecraft would be the most relevant examples that come to mind. You link the various platforms to the SES ID and then that allows you to see friends on all the platforms and build SES friend lists to initiate multiplayer and things of that nature. This could allow for game saves/session stuffs to be stored centrally with SES and synced to the various platforms for single player/multiplayer. I am still all for the dedicated servers as it will allow for larger MP sessions, but the idea of someone having to rent from a 3rd party host to get that is much less appealing. This would give another option that doesn't require yet another cost/subscription. Just a thought.
Hi, I don't know if i can create a topic for that but i just saw that there is a cross platform update for windows 10 and xbox 1 (I bought astroneer on the windows store) but it doesn't work. When my brother launch a game on his xbox and i try to join nothing happen (I stay in the pod selction menu) and when i create a game and he try to launch there is a 3min. long loading screen and then he go back at the pod selection menu. The NAT type of the Xbox is open and we play on the same connection (I'm on Ethernet and he is on Wi-Fi) If anybody have the solution, please, tell me
