connection problem

Post by xXsandroXx_21 »

Hello,

i was afk for a long time and wanted to stop by the game again and downloaded it via steam.
Since then I have the problem that the server is kicked every 20 minutes in multiplayer and the only message is *connection failed: an existing connection was closed by the remote host*. when I try to go to the server again, I am told that someone with the same name is already on the server and when I log in the person is kicked .. but I only created acc the day before yesterday and I don't know why. also found nothing about it in the forum.
Can somebody help me ?

lg sandro :)

When your connection times out it’s normal that the server side will not notice that immediately either. So once you login again your old connection can still be there and you can kick it. It’s not a different player.
