[SOLVED] How to connect via IP



  • Hello. I’m trying to play with my friend, but most of the time, we’re unable to join the same server. I can’t see the server he’s playing on in the Friends tab. So I’m asking, is there a way to join a server via IP? I know I can see the server’s IP when I press TAB. I tried to write open “IP” into console, but nothing happened. Thanks for any replies.

    Also you should fix the annoying bug with browser showing all servers full.

    To join via IP in console:

    open ipnumber:port

    (example ~ open 125.652.11.2:6644)

    Keep in mind that the IP’s listed when you press TAB are NOT the ones you would use to get into a game. To get the correct one, open your friend’s profile and on the top right where it shows them playing a game, click “join game” and a window will pop up with the correct IP and port number.

    Funny…. with the UE3 engine, I didn’t think you needed to include the port number. I normally just typed

    open (pasted IP address here) and hit enter…. and it’d load.

    Never mind, my mistake… it’s been a while since I consoled a server… 8-)

  • what about console joining servers with passwords?

    what about console joining servers with passwords?

    open ipnumber:port?password=passname

    example: open 123.55.644.2:4444?password=cheese



  • Thanks :)
