Joining the servers¶
We've got two servers running:
This is the main server where pretty much everyone plays.
UK-based mirror of the main server for European players. (hi guys )
For Windows users:
If this is your first time connecting to any of the servers, you may get a prompt from Windows Firewall asking if you want to give the game access. If you do, allow it through the firewall, otherwise you might have problems connecting.
..via the main menu¶
To naivgate to the main menu, press Esc on the title screen.
Specify IPV4 Address → Input the IP Address → Press Enter
So, for example, if you wanted to connect to the main server, you'd enter
us.kartinvidya.me in the input box.
Here's a short video for reference:
Upon joining, if you are missing any of addons on the servers, the game will display a prompt informing you of such and how much needs to be downloaded.
Press Enter to begin downloading, or Esc to cancel the connection.
..via the console¶
For a faster alternative to connecting, you can connect to the server via the in-game console.
To access it, press the tilde (~) key just below the Esc key when you're on the title screen.
From there, you should be shown a console prompt where can you can enter console commands.
In order to connect to one of the servers, all you have to type is
<ip_address> with the actual IP address.
Here's another video demonstration, using
us.kartinvidya.me as an example:
All I see is "Connecting to server..."¶
The server you're trying to connect to may just be down. If you're not sure, we do have a server status page where you can confirm for yourself.
Are you sure you're running the custom build we use for the game?
Double check the game version on the bottom-left of the title screen when you boot up the game and compare.
Check if the game is allowed through your firewall and that any connections are not being blocked.
