"Waiting for the server" issue after starting any MP game
I am recently returned to Northgard. Played a lot b4 in multiplayer, all was fine (previous seasons). I Didn't even reinstalled the game since than. Now, after all patches i have issue with infinite loading and that message. So i tried to configure firewall, even reinstalled the game, after deleteng old firewall rules nothing helped. All other games on steam i can play without any troubles like Hunt Showdown, Apex, Dota. No problems on my side. Anyone knows how to fix this issue? It's happens on any mode (checked DX11 and OpenGL)
Bug looks like here https://imgur.com/KWCc2Uq , and the orange part constantly moving, but nothing happens.
Try verifying integrity of Northgard files?
1- Restart your computer and launch Steam.
2- From the Library section, right-click on the game and select Properties from the menu.
3- Select the Local files tab and click the Verify integrity of game files... button.
4- Steam will verify the game's files - this process may take several minutes.
I deleted game, when that problem was occurred, then i deleted all firewall rules for it, and then i reinstalled it and problem still here. Also i checked new firewall rules, and it's seems that with them all OK.
Today i reinstalled the game one more time, this time i completely removed all game files by special program, including registry files and all files this program could find connected with this game on my PC. But it did not help. I am start thinking that maybe i blocked by region or something. I am playing from Belarus, Maybe it's somehow reason of the problem, or part of a reason. Because as i said all was ok like half year ago. Also i tested that i can host games with AI in MP. Dunno if it use server to start the game with AI, but all works, but if i try play with other players i can't connect to the game.
My friend that lives close by also has same problem as me. So we both from Belarus.
Hey hey! I have the same problem here. Every time I try to play in Multiplayer mode, I cannot connect to the actual game (Waiting for server screen). This happens when I host the game too. The other players can join the game. I tried verifying the files again, checking the firewall etc. I am from Hungary. I tried all the servers (Europe, North America etc.).
Has there been a fix yet? still cant play MP with my friend and this is upsetting.
Same problem here but i can connect wehn there are only KI in the hosted games
Still not fixed even today
Forever waiting for server
Still exist after latest patch. 05.05.2022
as of the 27th of July 2022, the issue still exists.
further steps taken in addition to the suggestions on this thread ;
-adding the game into the firewall exceptions list
-port forwarding whichever ports i could find on google (TCP: 27015-27030, 27036-27037
UDP: 4380, 27000-27031, 27036)
-disabling windows defender (i don't use any other antivirus)
-making sure i have inbound and outbound rules added for the application
-running the game as an administrator
-calling my ISP (which have said they got nothing to do with it since i have this issue with northgard only and only northgard)
Issue still occurs
It works when you turn on crossplay.
