Can't Get Past Start Screen
I'm loading into Eco through Steam. The game loads up and it brings me to the starting screen with the windmills and landscape. However, after the white bar at the bottom of the screen loads completely, nothing happens. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, or if there's a button I need to push. There's no way to join a server.
You now use your gameport instead of webport to connect, so if you used to connect to port 3001, you would now use 3000 if you used default ports.
If creating a standalone server on a machine with the client-server already installed through the game, you have to use ports other than the default, perhaps 4000 and 4001, although you always use 2999 as the listening port and share with the client. You may have to check out your support pages for your ISP to learn about your router or google your router make and model for a manual to read information about port forwarding. Usually, your ISP support site will have information on port forwarding for your modem/router. If the router is not from your ISP or they do not have that information for you, there are many guides online about how to do this, and it is a relatively easy process.
Next important thing: If your server's not showing up, you need to go into appdata/LocalLow/Strange Loop Games/ and delete the Eco folder then restart Eco and it will write new files. To get it to populated you may need to open the filter (middle button between search and refresh) and click 'apply'.last edited by
