Hey folks, after leaving Conan for some time, I recently found out that cross-play and dedicated servers for Xbox players are now a thing. This is AWESOME news and if I can figure out how to get it to work, I’ve got a crew that’s excited to jump in. I have a few questions that I tried to find answers to here in the forums.
Apologies if these are already answered, but I tried for a good 45 minutes and couldn’t find the answers.
- I see that there is a dedicated server launcher, but everything I see says that it’s for the Steam version. I believe that a server created with that tool can NOT be connected to from an Xbox. Can anyone confirm that?
1b) If it IS possible, when I did it, even though I got all the port forwarding set, I couldn’t find the server on my Xbox. Any suggestions on what I might have horked up?
- On my PC, I can “Enable Mods” and through that find a folder for mods. Specifically it’s ModifiableWindowsApps\Conan Exiles\WindowsServer\Engine\Config. There’s also a Windows folder under that, but that only has a “WindowsEngine.ini” file. I’ve poked around here trying to set a server name that I might be able to find from my Xbox, but nothing I’m doing makes it show up (And yes, I am starting the server from the Xbox App on my PC). Anyone have an idea on how to get that to move?
For the record, I did already get the port forwarding set up and the dedicated server launcher confirmed that those are configured correctly. Of course, those are the steam ports and I’m ASSUMING they’re the same for Xbox, but if not, it’s trivial to add a couple more ports…
I really appreciate any help here. I was happily surprised when a friend told me that they had heard about the dedicated self-hosting and I’m actually pretty eager to get back into it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Help can either be comments or links to other documents, but I’ll admit I’m kinda scratching my head.
