Alright, so it’s been a long time issue for me. I’ve got the game a few months ago. Me and my friend tried to play together on co-op server but we quickly forgot this idea cause we couldn’t join eachothers. So we went on an official server. Spent 200 h great hours but with my studies, wasn’t able to keep play much and our base went down. Now that we have time again, we wanted to play, but not on a server because my friend don’t want to farm a lot and I don’t want to loose my base again from the decay. But, the co-op problem is still present.
From all the solutions all across internet, nothing works for us. Playing with or without Battleye doesn’t change anything. My friend don’t want to shut down some firewall ports so that solution is out of the equation. Some people talked about Hamachi, but i don’t know how since you can’t open the console to directly connect to the IP. Some folks said to create an online server but there is two issues with that:
1: I already spent 100 hours on solo and spent about 30 hours to build my house, and I don’t want to loose my work. Someone told me that i could do a datafile backup to port on a server, but I don’t know how to do that.
2: The man that told me about the server also told me that running a server on one machine and play on the same machine is impossible, and i don’t have a spare one.
So right now I’m in need of some help. We went throught all the solutions that we’ve found but nothing is working. I’ll take all the help that you can get me.
