Amazon EC2, Twitch and Mudfish
If you're using Mudfish Cloud VPN v5.2.6 or above, please consider to enable 'Credit Saving Mode' which found under 'Setup -> Program' menu. We expect that it could soothe this issue by speed-limiting the non-game traffics.
Sometimes some users of mudfish report a problem regarding to mudfish traffics graph while watching Twitch because it consumes mudfish credit even if they are not using Full VPN mode.
When I checked and analyzed this issue deepyly, most of these cases are related with AWS (Amazon Web Services) because Twitch is owned by Amazon and operating on Amazon network.
Linking with Twitch
Some popular games are running on Amazone EC2 cloud to publish their games. So in a view of Mudfish, it's almost impossible to distinguish whether these traffics go to Twitch and the game server running on Amazon EC2 because Mudfish is implemented based on the routing table of OS.
Due to above reason, sometimes mudfish credits could be consumed if you tried to watch Twitch while Mudfish is running even if you're not using Full VPN mode.
The following game items have an issue:
- Apex Legends
- Black Desert
Blade & Soul
- Bless Unleashed
- Call of Duty - Modern Warfare
- Company of Heroes 2
- Dead by Daylight
- Diablo II: Resurrected
- FIFA 18
- FIFA 19
- Guild Wars 1
- Maple Story 2
- Mobile Suit Gundam Online
- NARAKA: BLADEPOINT
- NBA 2K23
- New World
- Paladins: Champions of the Realm
- Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege
- Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III
How to avoid
You can try to test with WFP Item mode if your game item supports this mode.
You can consider changing your Data Plan to Subscription.
Because the mudfish works based on the OS's routing table rather than hooking OS's internal APIs, this issue could happen. If your game is working fine with Proxifier, I think you can check Mudfish with Proxifier.
- Or please stop to watch Twitch while you're playing the game with Mudfish.
