MISO1UP Posted February 18 Share Posted February 18 Hope everyone is doing well! Trying to start a 7DTD dedicated server, ultimately to run a server for friends for Darkness Falls. When open 'startdedicated.bat' in the dedicated server directory, the console hangs at the first line, 2.216 INF WinThread started, nothing else happens. I've left it for hours, no more lines appear. I've read in the forums that sometimes the console just says this and the server runs just fine. The server shows up under the LAN tab in Steam>Servers. When I attempt to connect, it shows my internal IP and not my public IP and port 26902. Then 'could not retrieve server information.' Things I've done: fresh install of steamcmd and 7DTD dedicated server ( separate attempts through Steam UI and through steamcmd with 'app_update 294420') my internet setup: fiber > ATT router acting as a passthrough (port forwarded) > ASUS RT-AX86U (port forwarded) > connect to PC running dedicated server through WiFi (ports opened on Windows Firewall) ports opened (TCP 8080-8081, TCP 26900, UDP 26900-26903) on Windows Firewall PC specs should be fine (AMD 5900x, 32gb RAM, GTX1080) probably irrelevant but I deleted Mods folder with Darkness Falls inside out of my 7DTD game directory also What am I missing? It seems like despite hanging on INF WinThread started' line, the server boots up just fine since it shows up, but how can I get all the other lines to load, and how can I connect to this server and allow others to connect to this server? Thanks in advance! logs: https://pastebin.com/taUH0MfS Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
