    Cannot see Project Cars 2 Dedicated Server in the mp server list

    Installation via Steam GUI:
    The installation works, it is possible to grab the files and copy them to a dedicated Windows server. But the server is not visible in the multiplayer server list. Switching the parameter controlGameSetup in server.cfg and using -searchds does not work either. It seems that it does not search for the given server name at all.

    Installation via steamcmd on linux:
    At the moment you have to login to steam with steamcmd to execute: ./steamcmd.sh +login STEAM_USERNAME +force_install_dir ./pcars2 +app_update
    413770 validate +quit

    But there are no files transfered, not on windows and not on linux. It says "progress: 0,00 (0 / 0)....fully installed!"

    Code:
    ./steamcmd.sh +login ****** +force_install_dir /home/pcars2/serverfiles +app_update 413770 validate +quit
    Redirecting stderr to '/home/pcars2/Steam/logs/stderr.txt'
    [  0%] Checking for available updates...
    [----] Verifying installation...
    Steam Console Client (c) Valve Corporation
    -- type 'quit' to exit --
    Loading Steam API...OK.
    
    Logging in user '******' to Steam Public...
    Using cached credentials. . .
    Logged in OK
    Waiting for user info...OK
     Update state (0x5) validating, progress: 0,00 (0 / 0)
    Success! App '413770' fully installed.
    But there are no game files afterwards.

    Installation via steamcmd on Windows yesterday does not worked either but today it works.


    Is it possible to host and connect a dedicated server at the moment? Does somebody managed it to get it working?

    Like i mentioned on this post: http://forum.projectcarsgame.com/sho...rver-GUI/page2

    Try to change the MP Browser filters to Dedicated only and apply!

    My server was showing only after doing this!
    Probably has something to do with yesterdays patch for fixing the MP !

    Thanks. But unfortunately this does not help. I am running game servers for 15 years now but cannot get this thing running. Running pcars1 servers was not a problem either. This is disappointing for me.

    I cannot see the server but in the DOS console window I can see that others are joining the server but failing to connect. Probably because they do not know the password.

    The parameter -searchds does not work too.

    My server "Winnies Test" is in the server list too:
    http://cars2-stats-steam.wmdportal.c...ex.php/servers
    In this list are many servers listet but ingame are only 16 dedicated servers listed for me. So it seems that not everybody can see every server...

    Their are linux based servers too but I cannot download the server via steamcmd on linux.

    I found the refresh list is not very good in game and had to exit out of the game and back in to see my server.

    Opinion on good or bad, but if I joined my test server, then came back out the list would not refresh, and restarting pCars˛ corrected this. The sheer amount of time it takes to update the server list is mind boggling too...

    Is there any update on this? I see the RaceConnect server on the dedi list linked above, but as yet, despite many many refreshes in game, I've never seen the RaceConnect dedi shown (and I have filtered to Dedicated servers only).
