How do i connect to a friends server???


Recommended Posts

Hi there!

Me and my friend are big fans of the roller coaster tycoon series and have recently gotten into rct2 and thus, found rct2 Open! We have always dreamed about playing multiplayer and building parks together, and we found out now that this is actually possible! I made my own server, making it private and setting it up with a password and name was easy - however, my friend has found the server, but he cannot join it as there seems to be a dark red circle next to the name. If he clicks on my server, a message pops up saying that it is 'unable to join'... any suggestions/solutions?

Yes, we are both running the latest version and it still won't work

Nope, the red circle means that you're not running the same version. You either have to be both on 0.0.3, or both on 0.0.4. (and same build is even better :) )

@RuneLaenen you're wrong, in the case described here it means we don't know the version. It is different kind of red.

It is evident by the error being "unable to join" (as the user described in first post) rather than "Incorrect Software Version"

Woops sorry, didnt know there were multiple shades of red

It wasn't clear to me either, I didn't even know what they represented at all until I looked into it. This should probably be made more clear. But that's something else :P

I believe this to be the case, thankyou:) any suggestions on what to do?

 

I suggest you both download the same version, preferably the development version since that one is more stable for playing over a network.

okay, so we are definitely on the same build now (3.0.0.1 or something like that) however it says that we need to open our ports - unable to reach game server, make sure your ports are open - any help???

 

Well... Did you (or whoever who ran the server) open your port? If you don't know how to do this, you can ask your Internet service prodider. We can't really help you with that since it's different for each router or isp.
