Failled entry (Exit=2)

Post by Montross » Tue Nov 11, 2014 12:48 am

Hello there! I can't enter the game. When I try to enter server it just says "FAILLED (EXIT=2)". What can I do about that?

Thanks for your help!

Cheers.

That usually means that the "bzfs" server program can't be found. Be sure it is installed and in your PATH.

If you are wanting to run your own server, I'd also recommend running it from the command line. That way you can actually see error output if things are configured wrong.

If you just want to play the game, you don't have to host your own server. You can join one of the other servers from the built-in server list.

When I try to enter the game in a server already built-in, the same message appear.

You want to hit "Connect", not "Start Server". The Start Server part is only for when you want to host a local LAN server.
