Yo dawgs, listen up! If you’re tryna connect to your homie’s Valheim server and it ain’t workin’, we feel you. It’s frustrating as hell when Valheim can’t find your friend’s server, and you just wanna slay some trolls together. But don’t worry, we gotchu covered. Here’s how to connect to your friend’s Valheim server and get back to Viking glory.
How to Connect to Friends Valheim Server
First things first, you gotta make sure your friend’s server is up and running. Check with your buddy to see if their Valheim server is online and the connection details, like the server name and IP address.
Once you have the server details, fire up Valheim and click Join Game. Then, click Direct Connect and enter the server IP and port numbers provided by your friend. Make sure to click Add server and save the details so you don’t have to keep typing them in every time.
If that doesn’t work, check your firewall settings to make sure Valheim is allowed to connect to online servers. You can also try disabling your antivirus software temporarily or adding Valheim to the exception list.
Valheim Failed to Connect to Friends Server
If you’re still having trouble connecting to your friend’s Valheim server and getting a failed to connect error, don’t give up just yet.
First, double-check the server details to make sure you entered them correctly. If everything looks good, try restarting Valheim and your computer to see if that clears up the issue.
Another thing to try is verifying the integrity of your game files in Steam. Go to your Steam library, right-click Valheim, select Properties, click the Local Files tab, and choose Verify Integrity of Game Files. This will replace any corrupted or missing game files that may be causing connection issues.
How to Join Valheim Friends Server
If you successfully connected to your friend’s Valheim server, but keep getting disconnected or kicked out, there are a few things you can do to try and fix the problem.
One thing to check is your internet connection. If you have a weak or unstable connection, you may get disconnected from the server frequently. Try closing any other programs or devices that may be using up bandwidth, and make sure your Wi-Fi or Ethernet connection is strong and stable.
Another possible issue could be mods. If your friend’s server has mods installed that you don’t have or that are incompatible with your version of Valheim, you may get kicked out. Make sure to check with your friend about any mods they’re using and make sure you have them installed properly.
How to Invite Friends to Valheim Server
If you’re the one hosting a Valheim server and want to invite your friends to join in on the fun, it’s pretty simple.
First, make sure your server is up and running by checking the dedicated server console or Valheim server hosting website. Then, give your friends the server details, like the server name, IP address, and port number.
Your friends can join your server by clicking Join Game in Valheim, clicking Browse to search for servers, and selecting your server from the list. They can also use the Direct Connect option and enter your server details manually.
And that’s it, dawgs! You should be able to connect to your friend’s Valheim server and have a blast slaying monsters together. If you’re still having issues, feel free to hit us up in the comments and we’ll try to help you out. Stay Viking-strong!
