  1. So i'v followed this and run into an issue. My friends cannot see my server still unless I am on it. I do not understand why this is, we did a test where I logged in, then my friend did, and I logged out and it kicked him within a few minutes of this.

  2. I have a p2p server, the standard server via main menu, and my friends are always complaining of zombies hitting them far away and they cannot hit, idk if is a excuse or what, but i dont have that problem, if i switch to dedicated maybe this improve? i have 100mbps download and 5mbps upload, we are only 3, most of the time 2, me and my friend, the net should be plenty, he always have 9-13 ping

  3. When go to Cmd and type the telnet thing there stands it is connected but when i try to connect via IP there stands could not retrieve server files

  4. if I just use vortex/nexus to install mods, can others with the same mods installed as me play on the server with them? or is the only way to play with mods with others is through a dedicated server?

  5. vedui I want to start a new dedicated server do you know how I would do that would I create a new server and then in the config files change it to the recently made game? im confused

  6. I have had experience running a 7 days server before, but when I had to re-install windows, the backup didn't load the game properly and we lost everything. I am assuming I didn't do something right? I am starting a new one with Alpha 17. How do I properly back up the server/game files in case I have to re-install windows or something along those lines?

  7. I followed correctly all the steps. It works fine I already created my own server. But the problem occurs when my friends joining in my server it always says "Connection Timed Out". How can I fix it?

  8. Hi… Thank you for the great explanations. I am having a little problem verifying my server since is on d: drive and command prompt automatically goes to c: drive. However game seems to work fine for me. My friends however can find the server game on the list for games to join but when they go and join, they get an error Failed to connect to server. Can you tell me how to fix this? Thanks for your help.

  9. I checked the integrity if the tool and I get: 1 file failed to validate and will be reaquired. All of my firewalls, VPN, and antivirused are deactivated yet this problem still occurs.
    Is there any way to fix this?

  10. So I did everything and it checks out. However, I cant find my server on the server list. Do I just start a new game in order to have friends find it and join it? or can they join off of my steam?
