[seems solved] Serious bug, can't join or host games.

For technical problems with the build. Not for bug reports!

[seems solved] Serious bug, can't join or host games.

Post by Tamurel » 07 Nov 2015, 01:48

I was just flying around on icebreaker, with invulnerability, when suddenly I saw the deathscreen, together with my intact ship from the outside. After a while the game sent me back to the main menu and won't let me join servers (I assume this'll resolve when I reboot)

Hmm, didn't resolve on restart. Currently unable to join servers. I'll see if rebooting my pc works.

Rebooting my PC did not work either. I just reïnstalled the game (at which point I noticed that since the new build was installed over the original build, it appeared multiple times in my installed programs list), but I can still not join nor host any games. I can use everything in the menu just fine, but I can't play the game.

My steam connection is fine as far as I'm aware. I can access the store and can see people online and stuf. Strangest thing is that it's not like the game gives me some timeout or other error when I try to join or host, pressing the join or host buttons simply does nothing except for making the little jingle sound you get from pressing most buttons.

The issue seems to have suddenly resolved itself. I am once again able to join and host games. Very strange.

Still not completely resolved. Sometimes I can join games and play just fine, and at other times clicking the join or host button does nothing. What also happens sometimes is that about 30 seconds or so after clicking the join button, the game briefly shows the loading screen, after which it goes back to the main menu. The game also sometimes doesn't show any servers, even though my internet connection and connection to steam are fine.

Tamurel, have you tried running a traceroute to the server while this is happening?

Make sure you have ports 27015-27016 (UDP only) forwarded on your router. (See manual for details) These are for Steam communications and seems to fix the problem when you try to join a server and it hangs things up. Be sure to turn off Steam first - forward ports - run Steam again - then launch the game.
