Street Fighter (SF) 6 Communication Error Code 20204-20011 SD141-0-0: Is there any fix yet
What causes the error?
Despite the fact that the developers have not yet addressed the error’s cause, we can anticipate the causes behind it based on player feedback. The communication error can occur due to the game’s servers being down or an issue with your internet connection. So, here are some workarounds you can try:
1) Restart your device and SF6
This is the most fundamental fix for any game. Since a video game is an application at the end of the day, it is destined to malfunction. At times, restarting the game resolves errors that seem difficult to fix at first.
2) Check if game servers are up and running
Next, you need to check if the game’s servers are up and running. As of now, there is no dedicated official website for checking the server status of Street Fighter 6. However, you can head over to the official Twitter handle of Street Fighter 6 and check for updates regarding server maintenance, and unexpected mishaps.
3) Connect to another Internet connection source
Well, you need to make sure that your internet connection is not the cause of the problem. To ensure this, simply disconnect from your present connection and establish a connection with another network source. If you don’t have another network source, you can use mobile data. Launch the game and see if you get the communication error. If not, then the problem lies with your current network source. So, to fix it, you need to contact your ISP.
4) Restart your modem/router
But wait! Before contacting your ISP, you can try restarting your router or WiFi. Simply disconnect the router’s connection and turn it off. Wait for a couple of minutes. In the meantime, make sure that the wires and cables, such as the Ethernet cable, are snugged perfectly into the correct ports. This helps to avoid connection fluctuations. Anyway, start your device and launch the game. The communication error should be fixed.
5) Exclude the game from Windows Firewall (PC)
The Windows Firewall can, at times, interfere with the usual performance of the game. While we are not sure why the firewall does so, we do have a solution. Type “Firewall & network protection” in the taskbar search box and hit Enter. Look for the “Allow an app through the firewall” option and click on it. A new Allowed Apps window pops up. Search for SF6 in the list of games. If it’s not present, simply click on “Change settings” and then on “Allow another app”. Now, another sub-window opens up where you have to browse to the location of the .exe file of SF6. Finally, select the .exe file of the game, and click on Add and the game will be added to the exclusion list. Lastly, click OK to exit the firewall settings. After you are done with this, launch the game and check if the issue persists.
