Hey,

Recently, much to my dismay, I can no longer join games. When I go into the server browser & double click directly on a game or click on a game & hit the join button to join nothing happens. I tried reinstalling the game on steam but still no go. Oddly if I click on the history tab & join a game it goes through but I don't know where or why & what's displayed when I click on a game there is not usually what I end up with game-wise.

Please help, need my KF2 fix.

Reset your KF2 user folder, delete (or rename to keep a backup) My Documents/My Games/KillingFloor2/ and start the game it will reset to defaults. Also make sure no external application or hardware (router/firewall) is blocking the game.

I've been having the same problem, too, and the above recommendations have done absolutely nothing to alleviate it. I cannot join games online no matter how hard I try or how long I wait after clicking "Join". I uninstalled/reinstalled, reset my KF2 folder, reduced the maximum server listing when browsing from 1000 to 30, and *nothing* works. Googling around, I see a lot of people commenting on the same issue with not many solutions. Is there anything left I can try?

Client-side connection issues. Add these to any security software, firewall, router/modem and make sure your ISP aren't blocking them: https://support.killingfloor2.com/en/steampc-knowledgebase/article/egs-connection-or-search-issues (I know this is an EGS article but the same can be said about steam users.) Here's a screenshot of my KF2 security settings for your reference: https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachme...825680069317361674/kf2_firewall_allowance.png
