  • Make sure both yourself and friend(s) can join your server. If joining it from the SERVERS tab doesn’t work, try to join it from the DIRECT CONNECT tab instead. If you are the server host, use server IP 127.0.0.1 and the correct game port. If you are not the server host, you will need the servers IP address or the Hosts IP address to join it. Get Your IP address (here)
