Can't play multiplayer :(

Post by Jharug-Pike » Mon Jun 10, 2019 12:01 pm

Hello, so i have had the game for a year or so and i havle played it some even a bit solo but i really prefer to play with a friend of mine. He builds and do the thinking and i'm just trying to help and also take care of all the bug killing. Now however when i try to play with him i'm all off a sudden asked to log in and stuff and as far as i can remember that has never happened before apart from maybe the first time ever i started the game. Thing is i have my account on this page already linked to my one and only steam account and no matter what i do i can't get in... i have tried every single one of my 5 passwords... nothing works. Game files is veryfied and all and when i get back home from my internship i'l see if a reinstall helps cus if i can't multi player then i might just as well uninstall it and let it gather dust for the rest of time. I'm really thankful for any help i can get and i'm sorry if i have missed something obvious.

Reset your password here: factorio.com/login
If you can not remember your account name either, contact support at support@factorio.com and send them proof of purchase.

Are you saying that you reset your password 3x on factorio.com/login, and the new password sent to you did not work for log in on factorio.com/login?!

To be sure, you are not actually trying your factorio account password as server password you are trying connect to right?

Post:
  • a screenshot of the login window that you can not log in to
  • the factorio log files after an unsuccessful try to join your friend and log in (see my signature for the files)
