I have recently been playing sven co-op online with friends in private servers thanks to the help of people on this board. However we run across these problems:
1. often the server i create does not appear to others (even after updating)
2. the servers frequently crash, dumping players back to the server selection screen (this happens after they freeze).
any suggestions would be appreciated.

give your friends the ip and port so they can add it to favourites and they wont need to update .
crashing is unfortunatly normal .

Sadly, I don't even know how to find the ip and port of a game i create. How is this done?

go to www.whatismyip.com and put :27015 at the end of the numbers . thats your server ip .
example: 217.41.52.112:27015
unless you changed the port yourself .

If you don't have a router
Under 98, goto RUN and type winipcfg, change the drop-down box to your netwrok card and then your ip will appear.

Under XP, goto Start Menu -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
In the command prompt type ipconfig, your ip will then appear

If you have a router, type 192.168.1.1 in your browser and goto the status tab for older routers or goto 192.168.0.1 for newer routers.

Your ip should be listed in the status tab.

The port should be defaulted at 27015 unless you are A) running more than 1 server or B) changed it manually.
