  • Hi there. Wondering if anyone can shed light on why I can never connect to any Gmod multiplayer servers. I have deleted all local content, uninstalled and reinstalled the game and is still will not work. I have also made sure that my firewall gave full access to gmod. It still refuses to go online. I was only able to join one server. It was a jail break game. That's all i have been able to join since last month. Any help would be much appreciated.

  • I have the EXACT same problem, it just tries to connect and after 4 retries a sign pops up and says "Unable to connect after 4 retries" happens to EVERY server

  • i got the obox so i know gmod works but for the servers, i tried joining any gm_construct and gm_flatgrass. Which i thought would work considering they come with the game

  • I have the Orange box. So all those source games. nothing else though. I try to join all servers on the list and only twice have i gotten to connect to a server and i have no idea why i can join those. I really miss my gmod online.

  • [QUOTE=Balto-the-Wolf-Dog;16398557]ok found the firewall (nividia) and turned it off. it was not the problem. i need 2 open router ports[/QUOTE] i don't think it's the router, cuse i just remembered that I use to play gmod before and was able to host D:

  • Go to your Router settings page, For me (BT) I type in 192.168.1.254 into the address bar. Ofcourse can't help you much without the router type.

Besides, I'm not the best person to play games with online, when G-mod used to work online I just flew really high and dropped dead in front of people. I'm not good with building or posing :frown:
