I have a problem with server hosting. Whenever I host a server that I am playing on, no-one EVER joins. I wait for hours and hours and not a soul joins. I have a very fast internet connection speed and I have tried everything said in most of the other threads that are similar but none work!. PLZPLZPLZPLZPLPLZPLZ HELP ME!!!!!
First of all, is it dedicated?
There are more servers out there than people it seems, I have seen a big drop off in JA since the end of last summer, back then you were hoping to find a server you liked to play on that was not full, now everyone tends to stick to their favorites/active servers.
No, it is not dedicated. And damm, thanks for the info chris. Still, I had a friend in my clan and when I hosted a server, he could not find it in the server list when i told him the specifications of the server.
You must make it dedicated in order for it to show up on the internet list. :)
Yup its gotta be dedicated. Also dont be worried if it does not show up in the server list immediatly. When I make a server it sometimes takes up to 5 mins before it shows up on the list.
So, if you make a server, it HAS to be dedicated or it will not work?
It HAS to be dedicated to show up in the server list so other people can see your server.
Is there a way to join it after hosting it as dedicated?
What I have is the JA+ Mod. It comes with a file that when started opens up a dedicated server and allows you to play at the same time on the same server. What mod are you running with it?
