I bought the Early Access of Isle of Siptah and so far it’s as fun as the main game, but the log-in annoys the living hell out of me. I choosed an EU server with a ping of 79 as I made my character. Now the ping is mostly at 177-220, so you can’t enter the server. And if it’s not annoying enough, there is no refresh button for he server list (at least I can’t see one) so I have to restart the game completely and hope that I catch the ping under 140 so I can start playing the game. Usually every start in the game takes 30 Minutes, restarting the game over and over and over and over again…I mean Funcom…really??? So my question is, what are you gonna do about it? Because right now it’s just kills my mood for that game.
The refresh button becomes available after the list is done loading. Unfortunately, the server browser is kinda fubar at the moment.
Instead of continually restarting the game, you’ll almost certainly have better luck letting it finish loading the list (it takes 5-10 minutes sometimes and yes that blows!), then going to your favorites folder and clicking “refresh”.
Use direct connect specifying server address in “IP:port” format.
To get server’s IP and port, add it to favorites, try to connect to it, then open file
\Steam\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles\ConanSandbox\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\Game.ini and search for “[FavoriteServers]” section. There you will find what you need. (If not, try to close the game and then check the file).
IMO the first (and potentially only) thing they ought do is make the list not start populating automatically. Let people pick their filters and categories and THEN submit to create a list.
The number of people who need a completely unfiltered list of every playmode, servertype and region at once has got to be tiny - and yet everybody is forced to go wait for that to complete every time they open the browser.
Sorry, but waiting 10 min to refresh the server ones is not a solution for me. Like HonkyLips said. You can see your favorit server right away and the refresh button needs to be available right away. I don’t need to see all severs it’s just a very bad solution right now.
We’re working on server browser fixes and improvements for version 2.0.4, which will be focused on that aspect. We still have no ETA other than in the near future.
Apologies for the frustration and thanks for the feedback.
