Purchased the remastered original game on Xbox one yesterday, but there is a really bad problem with online co-op.
I’m able to join a friend and I’m also able to invite a friend in my game, but after 5 minutes we keep getting the message “you have been returned to the main menu due to disconnection from the host”.
We have tried restarting our games, restarting our console, we even tried different methods: invite directly from the Friends menu or selecting a friend then join current game… nothing seems to work.
After an afternoon of tries, we gave up. I really hope this problem can fixed.
This method definitely goes beyond my abilities, but thanks a lot for sharing!
However, following the advice of VaultHuntr101, the disconnection now occurs approximately every 40 minutes. Me ad my best friend are keeping to play bein afraid costantly of the disconnection, always searching for a “little column” to get a savegame about our progress.
It’s not a nice way to play a game that we love so much.
I really hope for an update/patch that can fix the situation.
I’ve had a similar issue, and after playing with various combinations have determined a consistent work around for the Matchmaking issues present at launch (BL1-GOTY) for my setup at least. I have NOT found a way to get the native Matchmaking service to work.
For now I am able to join games, and have others join my games, so long as the game is joined via the Xbox Menus (under Friends/Groups). This only seems to work from a fresh instance of BL1, meaning that every time I quit a game to menu and tried to join a new game it hangs at the “looking for saves” prompt. I had mixed success trying to connect with BL1 not already running.
It looks hard but it’s really simple. All you have to do is login to your router and add your PS4’s Local IP to the DMZ menu and enable it! That’s it! If you need help let me know, I can walk you through.
