Platform: Stadia

Summary:
This has been a problem for my friend and me since the lobby crash was fixed shortly after release. Inviting on another to a multiplayer game lobby or into a loaded game has worked only once.

Details:
We use the Game's UI to invite each other the lobby and/or loaded game via the session menu, we don't initiate the invitation through the stadia overlay. The other gets a Stadia popup saying "You've been invited to a game by XYZ". Clicking on that stadia UI element causes the game to attempt to load (there's often a progress bar, but on repeat attempts there's not always one) and then the joining player is returned to the main screen with a dialog "There was a problem on our end. Please try again."

We've tried this on four-five different occasions. A few days ago it failed when I invited my friend to new game, but it worked when my friend invited me (?). We then played for a while and saved it. Now, when my friend loads the game and invites me via the session menu, I continually get the error.

Other pieces of evidence:
- Game clients are the same version on the Stadia instances. We once had a problem early on where we had a version mismatch.
- I do not see my friend's game in the lobby list of open games. Also sometimes there's a UI element in the lobby to filter by friends, and sometimes there isn't.... ?
- While switching up who invites who worked that one time, it hadn't worked even previous attempts. Unfortunately now that my friend is hosting the game - and has the save game file - he has to be the one who invites.
- We've tried leaving the game and starting it again. I assume, however, that we're probably rejoining the same stadia server associated with our account.
- We've tried restarting our computers in case there was something funky going on with the chrome instances that we were running from.
- My friend tried to move to another computer but we still have the same issue.

Thanks!

Try adjusting the options of multiplayer visibility I think it's called, the top selection when you press options on the main menu. It might be set to nobody which would explain the error message. I had the same error and that seemed to fix it.

I'm experiencing the same exact problem as DrSanta describes. It’s a good tip what Kurama31965 points but we've tried to change the multiplayer visibility options and does not seem to work either. Did anyone find any workaround for this connection problem?

Edit

I found the answer to my own question here: http://forums.larian.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=687355#Post687355
