Network Requirements


Battle Pirates requires a broadband internet connection (Cable, DSL, Fiberoptic). Satellite, dial up, and mobile internet do not meet our connectivity requirements, and are not recommended for gaming.


Any router or firewall used on the network should use default settings to ensure reliable connectivity. Ports 80, 8080, 8000, 50000, 53, 443, and 843 should be open to remote servers answering on these ports. If your router or firewall is set to default settings, this should not be an issue, as these are common ports.


Troubleshooting Tips


If you meet all the network requirements above and are still experiencing issues, try the following:


  1. Disable Hardware Acceleration. To do this right click in the game, and select settings, click the bottom left tab (looks like monitor) and then uncheck the box labeled "Enable Hardware Acceleration"
  2. Turn off all effects: Click on the gear to see your settings, then click on the effects tab, then turn the effects to off.
  3. Don't play in full screen mode.
  4. Clear your browser cache. For steps how, check out this link
  5. Unplug your modem/router for a minute, then plug them back in. This is good to do on a regular basis for network equipment.
