Is there a way to create a server, and play on it at the same time?
When you start scorched and click “Start a multi-player LAN or internet server”, in the preferences do you select the following checkbox:
“Allow ALL other internet users to see and use this server.” ??
If your launching a server and then going back to the join-a-game button and browsing the servers, you need that checkbox marked in order to view it from the list of servers. Otherwise you must, in the same browsing server window, type in your IP address and port number in the “Connect to Name/IP:” input box. Your localhost IP (127.0.0.1) will work too.
No matter what we do it says that the server is full after I connect to it.
What is the maximum number of players allowed? Do you have bots included? (If so, how many?).. Becuase your wanting to play with another person (just 1?) you need 2 slots to be marked for ‘HUMAN’.
Also, somewhat like M.O. asked – is your friend able to connect? Suspecting here that this person is just somewhere over the net right? IE not sitting in the same room as you?
