Welcome. You are clear but incomplete.

  • What steps you make to host the game?
  • How far do you reach before deciding that you are unable to host it?
  • Do you successfully host other internet games?
  • What messages (if any) you get in the game?
  • What is in the game's log file?

Optionally, you could also be somewhat kind, by utilizing expressions like "please", "thanks in advance" etc.

HI MinePossu and welcome to forums face-smile.png

Build 19 needs Port forwarding in your Router. Not sure how, or if, Portforwarding can be established with a Phone, though.

The latest development build doesn't need Portforwarding anymore and is close to get a new release. So i would suggest to run the latest development build.

Which operating system are you on?

If it's Windows 64 bit, get it from https://wl.widelands.org/wiki/Download/#windows-64-bit-only

When I tried the internet hosting then suddenly chrome keeps crashing and not opening in my system at all so please help me to fix the problem. I use the only browser in my system so please help me.

I don't know if I can help you directly, but you are playing build19 or older, aren't you? If you get an unofficial development build you don't need special settings for hosting. https://wl.widelands.org/wiki/Download/
