How to start first time?

Postby Dalmos » 25 Jun 2018, 22:34

I have installed game FAF (not Beta but suggested one) , logged in, on the main page its written " you can choose a fraction or play random and we will match you against somebody. But when I press play nothing is happening , he is just searching and searching.
Have I done something wrong?

That's the ladder automatch system. The search time is dependent on whether someone near your "range" is searching at the same time you are. This is purely for 1v1s.

If you want to play team games or just custom 1v1s where you can choose the map/your opponent, you click on the icons under "create a custom game." The first icon creates a FAF-balance game while the icons under the FAF icon are various featured mods/betas.

It should look like this. Are you sure you also have FA?

Yeah the only issue I can think of that would cause this is an inability to locate your .exe to run the game. But maybe I'm missing something.

Afaik this means FA didn't correctly receive the featured mods from server/didn't patch them: Pls post your client logs (can be found in the top right). In the mean time you can also try using the other client (beta) as it uses a completely different patching system.

For more/interactive help you can also turn to FAF discord server's #technical_help channel.

Sometimes when I try to join some I am asked for password. When I submit FAF password he say that it is wrong?

Do I need some other password?

the games that have a lock are private games hosted by someone who only want certain people to join if you have not been given the password then you can join as the host decides the password for that lobby
