Kaos36:awesomealvin:Ragnor: When you say you checked the ip, what do you mean how did you check the ip address, in the game?
Well, when I host a dedicated server, the game closes, and then this console opens up. That's the dedicated server thing. So I go into the game, and I tried to look for my game on the Internet tab. But I couldn't find it. Then I went to Local/Lan, and there was my server. I even right clicked, and clicked server info, and then it showed the LAN IP.
same thing goes with killing floor. And my friends couldn't find my server also.
I get this problem with certain games some games I can host a server no problem does it automatically where others it will only show up in Lan. Like for instance 'Rune Halls of Valhalla' I did everything from the tutorial a player put up opened ports, dedicated server etc., even disabled the firewall one time out of desperation but the match still only shows up in Lan. I'll watch this thread hopefully there's a solution for your problem.
Ah if your on a Lan this could be our problem I just did a google and came across this
only the computer with the direct connection to the internet could be used to host a dedi server that would show up to ousiders if hosted on another computer that shared the connection the game wouldn't show up to anyone so i swapped them so my spare computer was connected and my gaming computer was sharing the connection..i could then host for my friends online and join myself via lan
Yeah but how do I know which computer is the direct connection? They just both connected to the network hub
Hmmm. I will try to find out. I really want to host. I think you gotta go into your router. 192.168.1.254
EDIT: Nah, I DO NOT KNOW WHAT TO DO D:
