Setting Up Online Multiplayer
Creating a Hunters Hub
When creating your Hunters Hub, you can set up criteria for the type of hunters you want to play with by designating Hunter Type and Quest Type. If you set up a passcode, make sure your friends know what it is! All of these settings can be changed afterwards by selecting Settings & Search under Wireless Settings in the menu. The settings you can adjust are the same as in Local Play.
Searching for a Hunters Hub
Host's Hunter Rank
During a Quest
If you select Search, only Hunters Hubs with passcodes set will be displayed.
If your friend is Available, then they are currently online playing the game. If your friend is marked as Recruiting!, that means they have sent you an invite.
If your friend has set their Hunters Hub passcode setting to Everyone, you will need a passcode to enter. However, if the passcode setting is set to Exclude Friends, if the host (marked by a red frame) is not on your friend list, you will need a passcode to enter.
If your friend is Unavailable, they are currently not online playing the game. Additionally, if your friend has set their system settings to hide their online status, even if they're playing online they will be shown as Unavailable.
