View Full Version : Can't Create Server

25-12-2003, 03:39 PM
I cannot create a server using non-steam SvenCoop, not even a LAN.

Any help? It randomly and completely freezes for no reason. Please Halp.

Yes I have exactly the same problem.

I have a half life installation fully patched - no steam running
and when I go to the LAN server screen it remains hourglassed and stuck with the join game option. It does not let me create a server because it wont relinquish searching for a LAN server. I have to ctr alt del it to remove the program. This is on a winxp home, zone alarm, router setup.
All other games allow me to create servers on LAN. I also cannot access internet servers either. I have downloaded a version that seems to indicate it will work for WON as well as steam. I did not notice alternative versions for download.

Any help thanks.

Get yourself a Copy of Steam and play through that. You wont be able to play for very long in WON even if you do get it working, due to sfx_t crashes on the maps and such (due to monsters talking now and such)

Doesn't work for me though Steam either...

ports are incorrectly set on either your windows inbuilt firewall, 3rd party firewall or router with inbuilt firewall or NAT functions

It only does it with 3.0 so I have trouble believing it is something else ._.
