My server ping (Not dedicated) is showing as ???

16 posts in this topic

I've read other threads about this being a problem for people, I opened the port in windows firewall, as well as port forwarding it through my netgear router. I've also set everything that has to do with don't starve to "Run as administrator". Anything else I can do? I'd really rather not play by myself because nobody sees my server when they filter them by ping. Because nobody wants to join a server at which they assume they will have bad connection in.

Are you sure that the settings are correct? You can look and check the settings on this site 192.168.1.1 Or try to update them. I always check settings here. I was helped many times.

No I really don't think im using a dedicated ip, and im not hosting a dedicated server. I did also already check if it was my firewall that was blocking the ping from showing too and that wasn't it. I really don't know any other ways to fix this as i've seen more then one admins already try to help with this problem in the past on the forums. It'd be better for everyone if this problem was fixed because more then half of the hosted servers always have the "???" ping, so less people play with eachother.

that's not related, you either have dedicated ip (that you can get from provider if you pay extra or by default if it's not greedy one) and both dedicated server hosted on your pc and server you launch in game will have visible ping or not and any server would have ???

 

ps the difference between dedicated and in-game launched servers are basically in servers' dependency in your game, you can even launch dedicated server of your in-game hosted world by starting nullrenderer with right parameters

Well no I don't have a dedicated IP. What were you gonna suggest if I did have a dedicated IP?

From what I've read in the past about this issue, it can be because your server is using Klei's "punch through" process (sort of forcing a port forward) rather than having it legitimately port forwarded. It makes it easier for personal servers to show up in the server list (and for others to join), but also isn't able to guess the ping accurately enough to display.

Maybe @ImDaMisterL knows someone who can better explain it.

Ok i'm not asking how to host a "nice" server im asking about the "???" ping issue, there are dedicated IPs that have the same issue apparently.

If it is supposed to make it easier for personal servers, then at the same time it makes it harder because only a limited amount of servers are even looked at usually due to only their ping actually being shown.

I don't disagree, but I do like that hamachi isn't required like many other indie games with multiplayer.

dude, you did fine, that (and a dedicated ip, of course) should be enough for ping being visible

if you make some observation, you'll find that is not how klei do, as i can see, they make game easy for edit and read (part of game is open), the game is configurable (via mods and even console) and servers are as well easily to manipulate with, you only need to be familiar with configuration files and some knowledge about setting network, and cmon, you did everything (of course, if you did that correct, which i believe you did because you did something a few people did - you read other threads)
