Rainway allows you to play games almost anywhere. All you need is 10 Mbps Upload at home, and at least 10 Mbps download at your remote location. Update 0.2.35 makes this system work more dependably.
Improved Network Support
Until today, you needed to have Port 443 open in your router to play games remotely. You can still use Port 443, but Rainway will now try other ports if Port 443 is not available in your router. Many router’s reserve Port 443, which makes it unavailable to Rainway. It’s nice to see the developers working to address this problem. We would like to see them add an option to define your own port in Rainway. With that said, this update is a step in the right direction.
Update 0.2.35 also adds support for IPv6 connections. Some Internet Providers and Routers use the IPv6 protocol for connections between networks and devices. While IPv6 is not as common as IPv4, it was preventing some Gamers from using Rainway. This update should enable everyone to try out Rainway regardless of their network configuration.
Update 0.2.35 also improves the way that Rainway Updates. Some updates in the past actually broke the client, and users had to download a fresh copy from the Rainway website. This update should make the updating process more reliable.
With this update, Rainway has added a menu for enabling experimental features. These features may be unstable, but can improve the Rainway experience for some users. The developers have also resolved several minor bugs that weren’t as impactful.
