When this happens, make sure other people can connect to your server using direct connect. This issue usually is a result of bad port forwarding or some firewall issue. Make sure your network configuration is correct.
Server configuration is also important. Your server is listed in the server list if you use the default server.cfg example. It's possible that you have removed the
# in front of the following line in your server.cfg, doing so will make your server show up as private and users won't be able to join it by using the server browser (the connect button will be disabled), but they will still be able to see your server.
Please make sure to add the
# in front of that line like shown in the example above. If this
# is already added in front of the line, then try the following steps.
Alternatively, use canyouseeme.org. Only works if you're on a Windows server or a Linux machine with a GUI.
If the server still doesn't show up on the list, make sure the following vars are set (they should be, assuming you used the default server.cfg example):
# Set your server's Project Name
sets sv_projectName "My FXServer Project"
# Set your server's Project Description
sets sv_projectDesc "Default FXServer requiring configuration"
The server will display an error upon startup if they aren't set.
There could be a lot of different problems, most likely it has something to do with one (or both) of the following:
Using more than 32 slots requires OneSync. The maximum slot count supported with OneSync is 128 slots. OneSync was publicly released in April 2018 as early access and made available for everyone in June 2019. However, the support of 32+ slots did not leave early access, yet. Hence, you still require an active FiveM Element Club Argentum (or higher) Patreon pledge tier or be part of the manually granted OneSync EAP.
To use more than 32 slots follow these steps.
onesync_enabled 1 to your server.cfg
sv_maxclients in your server.cfg to a value higher than 32
If you are not seeing the changes in the server list, be patient until the server list updates. You will see the changes already in Direct Connect.
You may be experiencing this in different cases. For example, the server colors show in Direct Connect, but not on the server list. Or it doesn't show at all. There are a couple of reasons why this may happen.
