    If you want to play multiplayer, there are basically five ways to do that:


    • Play with friends: This only works for the Steam version of the game. Select a world and hit the green "play with friends" button in singleplayer menu to start a Steam P2P (peer-to-peer) multiplayer session on your machine. Then you're able to invite friends from your Steam friend list to your game (alternatively they can join your game accordingly). This does not require any additional steps (unless a firewall blocks the connection) and is the easiest solution if you just want to play the game with a few friends.
    • Start a LAN game: This starts a LAN session on your machine. To do that, hit the red "open for lan" button in singleplayer menu. People who live in the same household can join to your local IP then. You can also play over the internet, but this requires port-forwarding. Usually it's recommendable to use the "play with friends" option instead, unless you want to play with users who don't have the Steam version of the game.
    • Play on a public server: When clicking on "multiplayer" in the main menu, you will find a list of all public servers. There are a few filter options available (as well as the ability to change the sorting of the list). Unless a server is password-protected, you can simply join it. Once you're on the server, you can use T to chat with other players.
    • Rent a game server: If you don't have an own dedicated server, and don't want to host the game on your local machine, you can rent a game server for Rising World. You can find an overview of official server hosters on our homepage.
    • Host your own server: The server files of Rising World are available for free. You can either find them in your Steam lib under "Tools", or alternatively download them via SteamCMD (no need to have Steam installed, anonymous login possible). If you want to host the server on your local machine, you have to forward the ports 4254-4259 TCP and UDP (if you change the server port, change the port range as well). If you have a dedicated server, it's definitely preferable to host the RW server there. To find more information about setting up a dedicated server, please see this topic: Dedicated Server Setup

    There is a small "circle" button next to the green "Play with Friends" button which makes the red "Open for LAN" button visible :) Since you're in the same network, it's recommendable to use the red "Open for LAN" button (just select a world, hit the red button, then your son can join to your IP through the "Multiplayer" menu / "Connect to IP").

    You have to use the Steam friends list to invite your son. You can either access your friends list from the Steam overlay by pressing Shift + Tab (although the Steam overlay doesn't work in some cases), or by Switching to the Desktop and using the regular Steam friends list there. There you can just click on the small triangle next to the name of your son and select "Invite to Game".

    Alternatively your son can use the ingame friends list in the main menu. Just start a game (by pressing the green button), then your son should be able to press the small joystick icon in the ingame friends list. If that doesn't work, he can still use the regular Steam friends list and join your game by pressing the small triangle next to your name -> "Join Game" ;)

    Another way to join a game is by using the SteamID64 (it can be found in the main menu in the top right corner - rightclick on it to copy it to clipboard). Just start a game, then your son can go to the multiplayer menu -> select "Connect to IP" and enter steam:uid (replace "uid" by your actual SteamID)
