SOOO, I'm an idiot, I tried dedicated server hosting. And I was kinda successful, in that my servers appear in GPB, and people seem to be able to play them.

However whenever I go to play them, all I see is 'connection timeout' whenever I go to the world tab, and before when I could get to the world tab, I tried to join the server and I just got a blank screen with cancel in. Now I cant connect at all, despite removing all files and a clean GPB Install. HELP.

Oh, and I don't know how to shut my servers down so there's just about 3 - 4 servers of mine that I cant stop LOL

Did you set up a static IP and port forwarding for the server??

These may help- https://forum.piboso.com/index.php?topic=3635.0

I'll have a look at those, but I did most of the steps in the 'Dedicated Server' tab. Sigh, will start again tho thanks for the links :)

(BTW The YT Links don't work, but the videos exist quick search and I got them)

I've followed these to the letter and got a server up and running before so good luck :P

Done this, server is up and running as per videos, works fine. However I still cant connect to online when I go to play GPBjust get connection timeout

Myst1cPrun3

I did mistakenly try to launch the game from the same GPB Install,

Will it have changed anything in the profile.ini?

Myst1cPrun3

it says:

[net]
connection = 4

what should this be as I dont remember it being 4

Welcome to hosting Dedicated servers. You touch nothing and it all goes to pot :P

It is easier setting up another machine to host the dedicated rather than running it on the same machine as you play on but obviously that isn't always possible. I used to use an old laptop with a wired connection

Myst1cPrun3

Debating Whipping out my old machine and using that

Literally, anything that can run Windows will work. Dedicated servers use practically no machine resources. They just need a fast and stable internet connection

now I cant see any m2 skins, my server shuts down whenever I try to join it, and i cant connect to any server that isn't m2 @ victoria. This is going well lol
