Alright just around 30 minutes ago, we were in the game then i slowly saw people leaving, then I'm alone in the map. So i leave and try to join another Multi player game guess what? No server!

Except this tiny message at the bottom saying querying master server. I searched it on tripwire, and surprising other people were having this problem exactly 30 minutes ago.

Tripwire could not fix it because it isn't their server, so I'm just making sure Valve sees this and do something about it.

Steam's server browser cannot find any servers either, this is troubling

You're right. That just stopped working for me as well.

Maybe we should keep the post active so we can collect all the petitions of people with this problem, but first lets be productive and think of what might be the issue.

1. Maybe the masterserver are not compatible with killing floor.

3. Maybe the masterserver is busy due to the sudden upgrade.

4. Maybe the masterserver is not compatible with Us.

5. Maybe the masterserver has malfunctioning issues.

Besides all these, we all know it's not our fault this is happening but it's valves issue that has to be fixed as soon as possible :l

Maybe if they updated the fix that would be great.

Here is more official news about what is going on, I suggest not being lazy and reading through the whole thread. It is only 3 pages long and you might learn something new. I linked page 3 though for those who like to skip ahead.

Ah btw, in regards to the fix I listed. I reapplied it to the steam config folder and it works once again. Only this time when I check the Read only box in the properties settings for the file I hit apply first and then ok. I also tested it by joining a server and leaving to check the server list and I restarted steam. Both times it still allowed me to find servers.

Yea i tried that fix both ways did not work. And one of the moderators did claim valve's server is broken and will contact them later today. As you can see it worked like a charm for some people but caused newer problems.

And my theory about incompatibility issue is proven around page 3 or 2. Where a masterserver2 file is made.

Eh it hasn't failed me yet. I'll continue server jumping and restarting just to make sure. For those that it still doesn't help Good luck.

I'm finding lots of servers here.

Screenshot (http://i563.photobucket.com/albums/ss79/Trilance/802.png).

I can find at random about 50 in game.

EDIT: Don't know why Photobucket resized my image, but the number is 802 servers for Killing Floor, screenshot taken at 4:35 PM today.

I already stated you can join servers but you'll get errors like straight line enemies. And also i see alot of 0's/6 that should tell how many people are unable to join.

Alright i fixed my problem but i do not know about other people, all you have to do is replace the masterserver.vdf file with the new one and delete the file called masterserver2

Note that the problem is still there for other people.
