Can't find any Servers

  • Known Issue

Hello, so I have been playing don't starve together for a while now. And everything has been fine. But today (16-06-01) I could not find any servers. Not at all. I tried refresh the list, remove mods, verify game files and reinstall the game. But nothing seems to help. 


Steps to Reproduce
Open the game and go to browse games?

Hello @MrSmile151, welcome to the forums. Can you try this method:

  • Right click Don't Starve Together from steam library
  • Click Properties
  • Select Local Files Tab
  • Click Browse Local Files
  • Open the bin folder
  • Right click dontstarve_steam.exe
  • Click Properties
  • Select Compatibility Tab
  • Enable Run this program as administrator
  • Click Apply
  • Click Ok
  • Open steam again and run Don't Starve from the Games Library again

Also make sure DST is enabled through your anti-virus and firewall as sometimes that could cause the game not to be able to find other servers.

@Eternity7, the issue happened again for you? Did you change anything on your PC between yesterday and now? And can you confirm if the dontstarve_steam.exe is still has "run this program as admistrator" enabled?

@ZillvrYep, it happended again. I'm sure that I change nothing after playing for a couple of hours. Dontstarve_steam.exe is still has "run this program as admistrator" enabled. Now I don't know what to do anymore :(

@Eternity7 can you check your client_log.txt file again, does it have the following line:

CURL ERROR: Operation too slow. Less than 5 bytes/sec transferred the last 60 seconds

That was what your client_log.txt showed before. I'm not assuming it's related to your internet connection. If you're running any background applications that consistently uses the internet, try and turn those off and try to check the server list again.

@Zillvr Yes, it does have this following line. But I don't think my internet is the problem, I was able to saw server list before but after some patches, I couldn't see it anymore.

I try to reinstall DST, closes all background app... but server list haven't appear yet :(

@Eternity7 have you relogged your steam account yet? Or set the steam.exe file to run as administrator too before you start it up. Could help. Secondly, are any client mods active when you check the mods page?

@Zillvr : I relogged my steam account, it doesn't help. Set the steam.exe to run as administrator, It doesn't works too. I also removed all client mods but I'm still not able to see server list :(

@MrSmile151:

Could you try opening the following address in a browser, and see what you get? 

https://d26ly0au0tyuy.cloudfront.net/lobbyListings.json.gz

Also, could you post your client_log.txt? You can find this file in the following location:                                

  •     Windows: Documents\Klei\DoNotStarveTogether\client_log.txt                   
  •     Mac: Documents/Klei/DoNotStarveTogether/client_log.txt                       
  •     Linux: ~/.klei/DoNotStarveTogether/client_log.txt

Finally, assuming you're running windows, could you open a command prompt, enter the following commands, and post the output here?

    nslookup d26ly0au0tyuy.cloudfront.net.
    ping d26ly0au0tyuy.cloudfront.net
