It doesn't move, it just stands there. I try interacting with it, but nothing happens.
Is this a widespread glitch or just a personal problem?
This is quite a fairly common glitch.

See if that settings changed anything and if it helps. If not, I would investigate your internet and firewall settings.

Only sometimes, when I join another server I cannot see chats but can send and I am the only wolf moving for about 5 minutes then everyone else starts moving; I do think this is because my internet connection is weak but if others are getting it to I guess it's not.

It could be the host's connection, as well. Still, it is best to make sure your connection settings are relatively stable and suited for WolfQuest (http://www.wolfquest.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=37&t=34892), regardless.

Perhaps it's an internet problem, then? Or maybe you should simply turn off your firewall (Just while you're playing WQ)

Whenever I try to make a public multiplayer game a message pops up in game after loading and says "symmetric NAT type, cannot do NAT punchthrough to other symmetric types nor port restricted type"
My router's firewall is disabled and I set Wolfquest on the allowed programs list for the windows firewall (which by the way, is enabled).
Also I have Windows 7 Pro if thats important.

Have you looked at and attempted all of the steps in this thread? I'm assuming you have, but I wanted to ask, first.

Do you have issues connecting to or disconnecting from other games when you join them?

When this happens, were you playing in a session with disabled chat before you joined a session with phrase/lexicon chat? If so, it's a known bug. You'd have exit the game after playing in a disabled chat session and relaunch it for the chatbox to display correctly.

Will there be a time when we can use something other than the phrase chat in an open mp game?

Currently there are no plans to put filtered text chat or voice chat into open 2.7 games.
In the future, please only use this thread for problems affecting multiplayer, not general questions about multiplayer. Questions regarding multiplayer can be posted in a new thread in Tips, Hints, and Help, if you can't find an existing thread for your question.

Hope this is the right place for this.. I'm having trouble with the voice chat in the game. I know my mic is working because I can use it in another voice program (Team Speak) but it won't work in the game. I tried closing the other program in case something was causing a conflict but still doesn't work. I have another person in the game with me who's helping to test it. She could hear another player talking but not me. Sorry if this isn't the right place *~*
