My friend cant play online with only 2 friendlies. White screen problem

★ Novice

Hi,

 

We are doing some tournaments on PS4 in between us. And some of our friends cant play with each other. When they're sending invite and press the join, after a while in white screen joiner and creator get error "You lost connection with your opponent". 

Only happening on our friend with two other friends. Except them we are playing without an error. 

 

Two of them using cable&tv iss, other one standard,

Two of them using standart ps4, other one ps4 pro.


Is there any solution about this please? 


Thanks.

Hi @Egzup,

That usually means that person has a strict NAT type or is on IPv6. You'll want to get them to set a Static IP to their PS4 and then place it in a DMZ.

If they're on IPv6 there isn't much we can do other than suggesting contacting their ISP to set an IPv4 address instead.

@Egzup Unfortunately not, as every router and ISP has their own method.

Hi @Lynh7un,

Can you connect to a random Friendly match or is it only happening with this one friend in particular?

Hi @nunomgdias,

Usually this happens when one of you is on an IPv6 address and trying to matchmake with an IPv4 connection.

If this is the issue the best way to resolve it is to set a Static IP address to your console and then DMZ it (Note: Please do NOT DMZ your PC IP Address). If the issue still occurs after DMZing your co-op partner will most likely need to follow the steps as well.

If this is happening on PC make sure you're running both Origin and the game as Administrator and set up the appropriate exceptions in the Windows Firewall settings.

Hello EA_CADE. pls HELP

 

WIN 10 - Origin.

 

When I try to play with my friend FIFA 20 friendlies, Volta, Ultimate Team against each other we both get the white screen and we cannot connect.

 

But we play together Online CO-OP Season with no problems.

 

We tried to start as Administrator, changed settings, reinstalled the game. Nothing worked.

 

We enjoy FIFA very much and looking foward for FIFA 21, but im not sure if the problem will persist, therefore we will buy FIFA 21 only if we manege to resolve this issue now.
