I have no idea what you mean by application disabled, but if it is DMZ mode (all ports are open to internet traffic)
get your proper IP address (the DMZ host), instead of your internal dynamic ip.
I cannot in all good conscience recommend turning on DMZ mode if you do not have a good firewall, because you WILL be attacked by random trojans / viruses (If you have a good firewall, then it'll get blocked, and all you'll have is the occasional annoying "
has been blocked")
IF you are behind a router, you should set up a static IP before enabling ports, and direct all internet traffic to that static IP.
My router is set so that my computers that are connected to it always use the same local IP. So they are static.

As for port forwarding, it's simple stuff and varies with each router, but it shouldn't be the actual source of the problem (in any case, double check to see ports are forwarded correctly). If you're behind a firewall, you need to open the ports on BOTH the firewall AND your router. Just one is NOT enough.
I mean that the feature on my router to only allow certain applications to pass through it is disabled. So yes, all ports are open to internet traffic on the router.

Well, that can be interpreted as "all ports closed". If you're sure it's all ports open, then I guess there's no problem.
I have no idea why you can't connect then. Try port forwarding, and if even that fails, then =/.

1. Open ports specified in readme.
2. Open Server.exe and make a game.
3. Open game and enter my own IP Address in the box in Online Competition Mode. (BTW, I got mine from one of those websites that tells me my IP)
4. Login then enter room.
5. Give my IP Address to my friends to play.
I can join my room fine, but it seems none of my friends can't. Even one of my other friends set up his own server, after opening the ports and stuff, but I couldn't join his server either.
I know it's not suppose to be this hard to start an online game, so will anyone please tell me what I'm doing wrong.

If you bought it new (i.e. from a store), then you should've set a password when the router was first installed (find whoever installed it).
Alternatively, try this:
Depending on your router model, if you chose NOT to set a user/password during router installation, the DEFAULT password can be one of the following:
(Don't type anything in Username.)
(Don't type anything in password.)
