  • Hi guys, I need some help! I just made my friend a birthday present - namely GMOD 10 - and we can't play! When we start a server the button "join game" is grey and when we search the server among the other servers it isn't there. We also tried Hamachi and to connect with the consol (we used our internet ip, hamachi ip and normal LAN ip). I really hope you guys can help me. Thanks P.S. I hope there is nothing to complain about my English because I'm from Germany.

  • First of all, are you tring to play over LAN or over the internet? If it's LAN you've got a problem I don't know how to solve, If you're playing online however... I'm guessing one of you is trying to host a game, if so you have to rent a server, it will NOT work otherwise. If you want to avoid spending money (and it'd be a waste if it were only two of you allowed on), try joining an empty server, the bad thing about this is other people can join too, and more often than not they are total retards out to fuck your shit up. Another alternative would be to find a LAN Café with GMod, which are few and far between. Hope it helped

  • Yes Wuggles, you are right. We tried to host a game and join. So in GMOD 10 it isn't possible just to create a server with the "create server" button like in GMOD 9? That would be very annoying because I don't know any Internet Café with GMOD. But what is this with the LAN game? Couldn't we play over Hamachi? Thanks

  • I'm not sure to be honest, I've never used Hamachi or played GMod over LAN, so I wouldn't know. If you just wanna mess around with your friend on GMod, just join an empty server, but if you're planning on doing something serious, your best bet would be renting a server, it's not that much, and allowing other sites to advertise on your server should pay for it.

  • Thanks guys for your quick replies! We're having a big LAN party today and we'll try to play over LAN there. If it works, we have to check our Hamachi settings. If it doesn't work, it must have something to do with Steam... Thanks!

  • Ok guys, on the LAN party we were able to play but just over a crossover cable. When we were connected over the switch we both got "Invalid Steam User ID" whatever this is. But we played! So there must be a way to play over Hamachi. If someone knows this way, please post it. Thanks

  • Just join a server with no one on it. You can play without paying and it will be a lot easier.
