Content server unavailable

Post by mickeSWE »

I know this is an old issue but i have not found any solution to the issue.

I have version 13.0 of OpenTTD but my content server is not available to access.
I have tried to disable to firewall, whitelist in firewall, reinstalled steam, reinstalled OpenTTD, downloaded and installed from tt-forum.
I have also tried to use another router, tried the game from different computer with different OS.

Any more ideas to try?

When you say "my content server", do you mean:

1. An OpenTTD game server you're trying to start,
or
2. Accessing the in-game content download server (aka BaNaNaS)?

Hi,

Thank you for responding, i realized as you mention i was a bit wide in my first post.

As you say it is number two, the in-game content server i am trying to access.
I am not able to find any running multiplayer either if it helps you.

Communication with the Game Coordinator works via port 3979 over UDP (inbound + outbound) and 3978 over UDP (outbound). Since you've tried to use OpenTTD on multiple PCs and routers, it might be your internet provider who has blocked these ports.

If it's occurring with all of your games then it is most likely your ISP blocking ports. And if you're trying to do it through a hotspot, definitely most likely because hotspots are usually restricted to just web surfing or low-bandwidth video streaming. Anything which might use a lot of bandwidth, such as video games, are usually discouraged.
