I have just bought rising world and am loving it. I thought that i might setup my own dedicated server. So, when i did eventually try, I had difficulty getting there as I had never done anything of the alike beforehand, but managed to get it up. Now when I try to join it, it just says there is an error. Could anybody help please? Thanks! NOTE: I have forwarded my ports (the correct ones). I am also trying to run the server on the same machine that I'm trying to join it from. Many thanks!
Sorry for the late response! What error do you get exactly? Did you forwarded all ports (by default, 4254-4259 TCP and UDP)? You can check out if the ports are really forwarded by visiting this site (start the server, then check the individual ports on the homepage): https://www.yougetsignal.com/tools/open-ports/
When running the dedicated server on your local machine, also make sure to keep the "server_ip" field in the server.properties blank (this forces the server to bind to all addresses).
