Title: Game says "No Servers Found"
Post by: The_cheeki_breeki on June 04, 2019, 05:55:25 pm
Hello. Whenever I get on OpenArena and select multiplayer, the screens says " No Servers Found". What do I do? My friend is using linux while I am using windows, and his works fine. the version I am using is 8.5.1 if that helps.


Thanks in advance,

Are you sure the "Servers" field on the top says "internet"? Did you try to stop scan (spacebar) and try again (click "refresh" button on bottom)?

The first time you launched the game, Windows should have asked you if you wanted to allow network access for openarena.exe, and you had to allow for all networks. If you didn't and the popup window does not appear anymore, you should allow it through Windows Firewall Advanced settings. If you wish, before going into Advanced settings, you may temporarily disable the firewall completely and try again, just to be sure the problem is with your firewall.

Note: you might be using a firewall bundled with some third party anti-malware software instead of Windows Defender Firewall, in that case you should check in that firewall settings.
