Dedicated server?
lovexzelda64 Feb 27, 2013 @ 4:44pm 
yeah a dedicated server or listen server just how do u make one?

Listen servers are easy, just start the game, click "Host Game" in the main menu, and the choose what mutators, map, difficulty and that stuff you want and then just click on "Listen" at the bottom right corner. And this is for hosting a dedicated server

yeah but when i make a listen server my friend cant join or it just says server not responding and making a dedicated server is really hard to make. I wish there was a easier way, i looked up so many videos on youtube and havent found nothing on how to make kf servers thats y i posted this on steam disscussions so someone can help me.. and thanks for replying and helping me out.

I can only answer for listen servers and it sounds like the problem is that you have to open some ports in your firewall. When you click on host game you see the ports I'm talking about. People cant join if they are not open.

hmm.. i just hate how making a simple server is so hard and how do i do that?

Try and see if your friend can join if he right clicks in the favorite or internet games tab and click on "Open IP" and then manually writes in your server IP, if that doesn't work I guess it's firewall problem or router like MRU said.

If you're using a Router, you can't host on a video game without forwarding the dedicated ports on it in its configurations. This is because they will, by default, block foreign connections trying to come through it. This results in people not being able to "see" your game. Games will produce error messages saying "not found" or "not responding". You need to Port Forward ON the Router, using any and all ports used by the game, to fix the issue. You could also drop the Router and plug straight into the modem, bypassing the entire issue. But then you'd only have 1 PC plugged to the internet. By having a Router, I assume you want >1 PC with internet connectivity. How to Port Forward varies on every Router, but it is very easy to do on Linksys and Belkins, which are most common.

Firewalls also block the connections, again requiring you to safe list the game, the ports, or to simply turn it off, in order to get the connections through to you.

Here[] you can find guides to forwarding ports on many different routers for many programs/games.

The portforward guides didn't help you figure it out?
lovexzelda64 Mar 1, 2013 @ 4:20pm
