my friends are in my server but i cant join cause i dont see my own server name in the list what can i do
A friend of mine had a similar issue to this when he was home-hosting a server as well. For some reason when home-hosting a server, the host of the server is unable to see their own server in the server list. Though I do not know a fix for this issue in particular, I have a recommendation for you and your friends if you all want to play together on a server. You should research and look into possible renting a VPS (Virtual Private Server) or a VDS (Virtual Dedicated Server) to host your server on. Doing this will allow for a stable platform for your server to be hosted on, and you and all of your friends can play on it with no issues. Depending on what your needs for a server are, you can get either a VPS or a VDS for relatively cheap; if its just for you and your friends to play on, it won’t be too expensive. I personally run my server on a rented VDS, and am very happy with it.
This is the only workaround for this issue that I know of at the moment, I hope I could share some insight on your issue and give you some more information.
Have a Good Day!
Did you set ‘announce’ to true? Did you forwarded the port 30120 UDP and TCP? Did you allow it through your firewall?
@Boss If his friends are able to join the server with no issues, his ports would have to forwarded correctly and there would not be any issues with his firewall. I do not believe this to be the issue in this case.
@Boss i did that but no change and is there a way to stop the windowed mode and make it start up in fullscreen
Excuse me, I didn’t read it correctly. Did you try joining through direct connect?
