Can't connect online? No servers and blacked out connect button

16 posts in this topic

Hey, I've been playing NMRiH for a few days now and the games been crashing a lot, and today I joined a game and got some sort of vac related message (didn't read it, thought it was another error message again) and I could no longer find any online servers? The connect button is blacked out so i can't click it and the refresh button doesn't bring up any games, I've checked the filter box and that's still on default. Any idea what I should do to play online again (singleplayer mode still works)? Thanks.

And before anyone says you hacked, I don't even know how <_< I just joined a server, spectated the game that was on and when the game restarts I got some message and disconnected and the client closed.

Deleted everything in my Steam folder and reinstalled all of it and redownloaded NMRiH again, still can't find any servers and the Connect button is still blacked out :( guess it's that VAC ban thing?

Do you have any MDMPs? See this thread

The connect button is blacked out so i can't click it

The connect button is only enabled if there's a server selected, so if no servers are showing up it won't be enabled.

On steam it says i'm "in good standing" for VAC whatever that is and no there's no MDMPs files, just the bin, hl2, patches, platform, sourcetest folders and hl2. Nothing else :mellow:

oh, i just tried l4d2 on steam and multiplayer still works for that

The server list has been buggy recently. You may want to try to install the beta of steam (as I was notified about two days ago in order to see listings).

I'll take a look more today, but if you were VAC banned, you would still see the servers but wouldn't be able to connect to them.

One idea I have is to stop steam, delete the config folder (Steam\config\) and start steam again. It could be related to you not being able to query the master servers for a list of game servers.

Here's something you should all try. Can you see servers in a game like TF2 or CSS? Is it just mods?

Same thing is happening to me when I try to play. It said "No master servers for you unless you do the steam beta client thing." Now it just doesn't show servers.
