Issue with friend...

Ok i posted on a later thread but i dont think anyone was going to read it was so old, i also read the solutions offered there and nothing helped... SO. I have a friend i regularly play with and i went to invite him to private chat, he didn't respond, did it again (we were on dark souls) still nothing, then he sends invite, it says joining chat... for about 30 seconds, then just stops. It fails at this point doesn't say anything either just stops trying. Tried getting on gears, we can both join other games, but not each others, i can also join other friends invite to chats/parties whatever, it all works. Both of our NAT types are open, on gears though, his system tells him i have him blocked, i sent messages invites the works, deleted him re-added him, he did the same nothin! I even blocked and then resent messages over and over to see if t could remedy itself, still nothing. I have googled, youtubed and now i am trying here. If anyone has any suggestions i am open for them.

I'm pretty sure one of your NATs is not open... I know it says its open in the Network Connectivity, but its not always right

Not sure if this makes a difference or not but I believe Dark Souls has disabled party chat.

issue resolved, online customer support was good. But for anyone else who might get this issue, heres how it got fixed.

First cleared my cache twice in a row (clearing cache does not remove saved games/profiles ect) you will have to update games again however. Second i reset my network setting back to factory default and reconnected. that was all.
