Ok, I set up my server, fine. It displays on the internet. But I try and join it, and it won't work. It sits there saying awaiting game state or whatever forever. My server IP port is a negative. Which I don't think is right. Does it have to do with the port number? If so how do I change my server IP? Please help me out. I'm steps away from achieving my goal. Please help!
My only advice is launch the server, then launch the game using a different port (if its a dedicated server and its the same pc).
or look for your server under the local server filter, your server will apear as "servername[UDP]" if i am not mistaken.
u have to have the port numbers different if u want to serve and play on the same computer. add command line switch to the server prog:
