View Full Version : I can't connect to any of my friends listen servers.

It just says Retrying Connection when I try to join my friends. None of my friends can join eachother in multiplayer. We're trying to play Sven Co-op.
Any idea of what can be wrong?

On the hosting server is sv_lan set to 1? If it is, only those on the same network can connect. I think to fix this, before you start a game, set sv_lan to 0, then load the map using the 'map' command. Then the joiners use the 'connect xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxxx' command, where the x's are the host IP address and port number. I think this is how to do it. I can't try this because I have no one to test it against.

Edit: I found this post (http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showpost.php?p=15422218&postcount=5) that might help. I'm not sure if this applies to GoldSource (HL1) games or not. Good luck.
