No connection possible

No connection possible

I still do not get any connection to any steam server.

However, it seems that people are playing out there.

Is this just a fake or real?

Do I have to re-install everything???????

And: it is not the firewall!!!!

Can anybody confirm that they have the same problem or are all playing ok now?

Thx

And drop 20 kilotons on steam!

All Steam accounts are up and functional. If you can NOT log in you are typing in the wrong password, use the password recovery feature.

If you are having other steam problems, contact steam support.

For some reason steam seems to want me to download the whole of RO. Which is odd, given that it's been already installed for months!
Any idea as to why? Or do I have to uninstall and reinstall?

steam is glitching, it won't really download all of RO, it will just verify the cache.

My steam has stopped connecting to server.

My steam has stopped connecting to server.

My steam program has not been able to connect to steam server.

It's really strange. One day you play RO and steam connects to server, next day steam doesn

Steam--RIP--Dead--Does not Work

Steam--RIP--Dead--Does not Work

Steam is dead. On my computer for weeks RO has not been able to connect to any server. The error "Unknown steam error, contact Steam support" is less than worthless. RO--RIP!

The OS is fully patched XP/Pro. I also could not install RO on a multi-processor 64-bit computer. The install script bombed the setup saying that the software could not be installed -- end of message.

Bad scene with these kinds of problems. :mad:

That error is the most common error around and well documented in the Known Error/Fix list. Delete your clientregistry.blob in steam and you should be good to go. If installing off CD's won't work you can always download the game from steam. But if you have problems installing off the CD you will have to contact the publisher.

RO--still dead

RO--still dead

I got the following advice from the web site:

That error is the most common error around and well documented in the Known Error/Fix list. Delete your clientregistry.blob in steam and you should be good to go. If installing off CD's won't work you can always download the game from steam. But if you have problems installing off the CD you will have to contact the publisher.

I deleted the clientregistry.blob from my steam directory and tried again.

Same problem--now the game just hangs trying to find any web site. That is no error message, no connection.

So I'll try deleting everything with program remove and reinstall, but note that the problem was not solved with the deleting of clientregistry.blob, this only resulted in an error message being removed and no IP connection being made.

Thanks for the help! I'll let you know what happens next, but the game is on it's last legs here with errors and problems like this.

If you have the "unkown steam error" problem deleting your clientregsitry.blob and letting steam refresh it self should fix it. However from your last post it seems that is not what you have. If the game is hanging trying to connect to either the internet or a server odds are you have a firewall or router that is blocking the ports RO needs to use. You will have to unblock those ports.

If you are having a different problem, please explain in detail so that I might help you.

RO requires you have the following ports unblocked:


7757 UDP/IP (Game Port)
7758 UDP/IP (Query Port)
7767 UDP/IP (GameSpy Query Port)
28902 TCP/IP (Allows your Server to Connect to the Master Server Browser)
8075 TCP/IP (Port set via ListenPort that your WebAdmin will run on)
20610 UDP/IP (Steam Port)

Problem fix--fix unknown

Problem fix--fix unknown

Thank you very much for your help. I cannot explain why this works now. I did not have to modify the port settings on my WinXP Pro computer. I did optimize the hard drive, after deleting the mentioned file. This works now.

Thanks again for your help,
Cheers,
:)
