Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Online connection to Shooter Game doesnt work by using iP

Hey, i have tried to set up a Online connection between my PC and Laptop. If i host a game with my PC by going to the ingame Menu "Host->FreeForAll", i can find and join that game in the refreshed Server-list by going to "Join->Server". Everything is fine!

If i host a game by using an edited shortcut (mymap?listen -game) i can create that game (I can read "Server" in the upper left corner). BUT i can not join that game with my second device, which has also an editet shortcut ("ipaddress -game"). The loading screen is infinite. After that i tried to join by using console commands ("open mymap?listen" and "open ipadress") but that didn work too, the loading screen is infinite again.

So my only way to set up an online connection is to do that in the Main Menu.

Whats wrong with that?
