  • Stuck on Starting Game! I have tried loads of things that i have read on google! Mate can connect.. but i can't/ I can get on Other Servers just tried. I can connect to a single player game. even joined a friends game. I can hear the in-game sounds but stuck on Starting Game! this is seriously frustrating coz i can not find the answer to fix this. Please help!!

    I have done the 7dtd TOOLS repair.. deleted everything! even done steam Repair. Still Nothing Happens!


  • Yes i have done support Ticket.. I have even tested on another ''several'' Server-Hosts Servers and Can connect. without a single issue.. ? Are your servers Blocking me??

    My Firewall is off! tried that still same issue.. Even added the game to my Exceptions.. Still will not let me in! just hangs me in starting Game screen... Friends say they see me appear online in game just i am not in the game ofc.. I have have searched everything! i possibly can on google to try to resolve this and have come up empty.

    Never have i experienced anything like this before with connecting to a hosted server. I can't find the fix. this is beyond me. So i am giving up

    Server in mean time has decided to go into Loop mode and want to restart and restart over and over... And yes i have tried the Reinstall option! and even changed game type All to no avail.

    I am out of options.

  • Hi, I have the exact same problem on a 10 slot server with 2 people on the latest A19 version of 7 Days to Die (modded).

    We have tried anything : reinstalling the game, the mods ... I've cleared the players files in the server data as well. Those 2 players are stuck at the end of the loading screen hearing all sounds, while having no issue whatsoever in the console. As a connected admin, i do not have any warning/errors in the logs as well. They can join any single or other server without changing anything to their mod list.

    Our last thoughts is that, perhaps the server doesn't consider the number of players correctly...

    Indeed, the first 10 players that played could connect easily to the server. But even when they're disconnected, the last 2 players who joined the latest can't join at all.

    So, i'm wondering if 10 slots mean the server can't HANDLE 10 players at once - whoever they are - or if the server ACCEPTS 10 DIFFERENT players total...

    Nevertheless it would be weird, since between the two, one of the player actually managed to join the server, once. Counting as the 10th player in my list. He was stuck in the ground then, and i couldn't TP him (would never work). So i've had its files erased, i suppose he's counting as a 11th or 12th now.

    Thanks for any help, very much appreciated.

    OP, how many slots and players do you have on your server ?
