Firewalls usually don't block incoming, only outgoing. It's worth a shot though.

Well I don't know too much about viruses but doesn't that seem kind of counter-intuitive? If a firewall is there to stop viruses from getting on your computer, wouldn't it be regulating incoming, and not outgoing, traffic?

That's not exactly what I was talking about. By the way, this is coming from someone who knows nothing about Firewalls. Firewalls usually prevent a direct connection to your computer from an outside source. If one was only interested in connecting to other people's servers, a firewall wouldn't prevent it by default. Hosting one, however means your computer is essentially the main server everyone gets their info from (technically not, since the Host and the Clients are both working with each other through the "Master Server", but you get the point).

So the main problem a firewall can cause is hosting, not connecting to other servers in general. This is why most people are able to play just fine on Multiplayer here in OpenRCT2, but when one wants to host a server of their own they need to open ports, allow firewalls and what-not.

Just want to point out, I also mentioned antivirus software in my answer, which does control firewall rules and (if I was correct in assuming that antivirus software does control incoming traffic) could be causing the problem.

I don't know, it was as good an idea as any IMO :P

After trying Multiplayer once again after a month and having the same problem, I can say it's not affecting you alone. Perhaps the program has trouble connecting to the Master Server due to a bug?

Whatever the problem is, it still shouldn't affect you this bad so as to prevent MP all together @MidnaGamer. You could keep trying maybe.

An obvious solution would be to run the stable build (even though you won't be able to connect to the majority of servers due to difference in versions).

Yes, that's EXACTLY my problem! it seems everybody uses unstable builds of 0.05-develop.

Makes sense, but it's also dumb.

It's not dumb, the stable builds get behind really quickly. The last stable was released a couple of weeks ago, but since then they've added the ability to rotate objects in the tile inspector, the ability to change track types of existing rides, and numerous bugfixes.  Things are being added all the time, and if you wait for them to reach stable that means several more months of ad-hoc solutions and workarounds for features not yet implemented. IMO it's worth putting up with a few more bugs, especially as they tend to get fixed quickly anyway.

This will probably be another long one, as we have quite a goal to reach this time – ridding of vanilla binary. You may have seen it already, but we are also working on enabling other architectures (ARMv7, x86-64), improving multiplayer experience and much more. It may not get called 0.0.X by the time we reach next release.

Does this also allow us to rotate entrances and exits to rides? I know it's possible with hex editing, and I was actually thinking of suggesting the ability to rotate entrances/exits. I'd check for myself but I'm not on my laptop.

Yep, you can rotate the entrance and it still functions correctly (it does look kind of weird - when the peeps come out of the entrance they are not on the station platform, but as you would normally make the entrance invisible and build your own platform this is hardly an issue).
