What obstacles can be encountered?

Below, we will discuss the possible causes of problems with the Don't Starve Together server.

Different settings and needs of players

If you are playing an outdated version of the game, you may not be able to connect to the server. In this case, check if your game's settings match the server's needs. Make sure that your game characteristics are identical and meet or exceed the recommended ones.

The size of the server's world

In addition to the settings, it is also important that your world size is at least medium. If your world or your friend's world is smaller than this, you will have problems connecting to the server. This problem starts with the server not responding for a while and then disconnecting you.

Server location

The location of the server also largely determines your ability to connect to it in multiplayer mode. If you and your friend are in different distant locations, you won't be able to join the server. Make sure you are in the same region or city.

The impact of game caves

Caves are another thing to check. If your server is not responding, make sure that caves are not enabled on the server. The reason for this is that caves require two servers to be running at the same time. This takes up a lot of RAM space, which leads to this server error.

High ping or latency

High ping or latency occurs when there are multiple devices connected to your internet, other programs running on Windows, and your distance from the players. Make sure that you have optimized your network, and also make sure that you have forcibly closed all programs running in the background.

What can be done?

Now, we'll discuss what you can do to improve server performance:

Restart the game or device

If you are dealing with a server that is unresponsive or not showing up, start by restarting your device or restarting the game as an administrator. This simple fix can help you free up more RAM.

Update your mods

Mods are very effective in improving the gaming experience of players, but using them in your game may introduce many new obstacles and game issues. Outdated mods may be the reason why the server does not respond to them. To fix this problem, you need to update or uninstall the mods.

Check your Windows antivirus or firewall settings

A Windows firewall or active antivirus program can block most games from running over the network. The best solution is to disable your Windows antivirus or firewall while playing the game. You can also add the game to the list of allowed programs.

Port forwarding

To solve this problem, you may need to use port forwarding. Port forwarding allows your computer to connect to a public server. In most cases, this helps.

We wish you a pleasant and cozy gaming experience, we will always help! Play Don't Starve Together with GODLIKE.
