Dungeon Hunter Alliance Joining Friends Issue Work Around


Since I know quite a few of us picked up Dungeon Hunter Alliance, I thought I’d inform everyone of a work-around for a “joining friends” issue. I had read something about this error, before the game was released on the PS3, and came across it with my son trying to join his friends. Out of approximately 12 attempts to join each others games, only one of them joined once, and was then disconnected almost immediately.

Well, I found a fix on a couple of blog sites, and it worked perfectly every time.

To join friend’s games, after accepting the invite and selecting your character, push the ‘X’ button repeatedly until the “game loading” screen appears.

Hopefully Gameloft will release a patch to fix this in the near future.

    I read the same thing, as I read a review which mentioned that bug. Spamming X is a funny way to correct that.

    However, I haven’t experienced that, mostly because I don’t have friends to play that game lol

    So yeah, if any of you is interested in playing my psn id is pedro_labate.

    How about that game night?

    it was funny that as soon as I installed the game onto my ps3 and went to play the game – boom – update. that can either be a good sign or a bad one.

    We need a review of this title, stat. I’ve been hearing such mixed responses so far that I haven’t purchased the game. But I want to like the title, so tell all!

    I havent had this problem as nobody plays with me :P
    Soup its like dark alliance and dungeon siege 2. It is worth the moneyt. there is magic find % and items appear to be random. I have found a few weapons and they have slightly different stats. If your looking for a dungeon hack and slash look no further.The game is meant to be played with 4 people, any less and your screwing your self out of tons of unique items. so if your not into playing in random mp games its not for you. You can try solo but you wont find anything at all unique other then the boss drops which are set, the random roll wont happen without 3 other players. You will also hit a wall going solo as I did where you simply need the help unless you re-visit previous battles to lvl up but then its still dependent on gear.

    Jason, I’ll have to disagree with you.

    I don’t think the game is that dependent on multiplayer. Sure, there are some bosses, for example, which are nearly impossible to beat alone, but it’s possible.

    And it’s also possible to find unique (golden) items playing alone, I have found many, but yes, everything drops more frequently when online. I have a theory, I think the chance of getting white, green, blue, purple or gold items is fixed, what changes is actually the drop rate, as it seems enemies drop loot a lot more often when I’m online.

    Anyway, yeah, the game is meant to be played with friends.

    I agree, and have seen the same thing..

    The game is a blast.

    Also the error is only when trying to join a friends invite for some odd reason.. joining a reg multiplayer game works fine.

    Have you had a problem with it? Voice chat has worked fine for me every time so far.

    Hey, ANyone know if the chat is fixed? After hrs of trying I fiinally got to talk in one game with a friend that was in the same region, but we could never chat with overseas friends, This really sucks, bought the game mainly for this feature :(

    Haven’t seen any updates..
    I have some issues with this game as far as loading times.. and joining games, but still loving it.

  11. #11 by Pedro on April 18th, 2011 [ 39949 Points ]

    Voice chat failed on me a couple times, but i didn’t get to use it much since I had a couple teeth removed friday and I can’t really talk that much right now ;p

    Joining friends seems Ok, however, I’ve only done it once.

    @Oly I’ll have to agree with you, loading times are terribly long. Also another thing that’s a bit annoying is the hit detection. Works fine for ranged attacks, but melee suffers, half the times your attacks don’t count.

    Anyway, I’m also enjoying the game a lot. I’m about halfway through my second playthrough, going for Lvl 75 and Legendary Trophy. Then I’ll pick up the other two classes ;p

    Hey guys just thought I’d let u know a friend put in a complaint regarding the chat features not working, and recieved a letter back from them saying they are aware of this prob and currently working in a fix, here’s hoping thats true and will happen soon, getting jack of having to hold the game up while 1 or more of us are typing msg’s between us to communicate. This game will be great with that feature working
