This forum is there for you to post when you open a new listen or dedicated server for others to join and play on. Advertise your server here, giving details of when it launches, when it will close, what gametype/maps you play and what the time and score limits are. If you want to, you can also hand out your Internet IP address -- this will make it easy for people to join when they have trouble seeing your server on Steam. Please make sure to post if your server uses Steam tracking because that means only players signed in to Steam can join!
If you set up a dedicated server, please define a name for the server without spaces or, if you must use spaces, enclose the name in quotes. Like this:
Code: Select all
?serverdescription=MyServer ?serverdescription="My Server"
How do you join a server?
For Steam servers
You can find these servers through the game's "join" menu screen, in the server browser. Pick one and click "join" to play on it.
If someone opens a LISTEN server, that means they will be around on it and wait for you to play with.
If someone opens a DEDICATED server, it means the server will run by itself and will be empty, waiting for testers to fill it.
For non-Steam servers
If someone opens a non-Steam server, you will not see it in the menu's server browser. Rather, you will have to join that particular server through the IP or domain the hoster will post in this thread when they open a server. To do this, go to the "I.P. Join" page on the join screen in the menus. If you know a Steam server is there but the browser does not display it for some reason, you can also use the IP/domain method to join.
