My ping when playing Hidden it very high compaired to other games. :confused:
So does anyone know what ports hidden uses? so i can open them in my Router (My router has a built in firewall, opening the ports removes it from the firewall).
If i open these ports it should reduce my ping :) , and then i wont die while lagging. :mad:

Thanks

UDP 1200 (used for friends service)
UDP 27000 to 27015 inclusive
TCP 27020 to 27039 inclusive

Are the standard ports to be opened/forwarded as recommended by valve support. They apply to all steam games and only servers running on random port numbers will be missed by this, not much you can do if admins decide to run servers on completely random ports though!

Also if you can play hidden at all, the correct ports are already open! You can't reduce your ping by opening other ports, a port either allows a connection or it doesn't. Your connection to the server isn't simultaneaously shared across ports, you connect from one port to another port, thats it.

In fact, if you're not hosting a server and you can play you don't have to worry about the status of your ports other than basic network security.
