Confirmed fix for Crashing while using Server Browser

Recommended Posts

https://forum-en.msi.com/index.php?topic=178063.0

TL;DR
MSI motherboards especially, but others as well may come with pre-installed net killer software that trys to manage your network card, its the Devil, remove it as discussed in the link above.

(Its the same fix for 0 servers showing up in your server browser, just a different issue caused by it, Thnx Litoralis)



This has also worked for a few members who do not have any MSI killer network software:

in Steam -> Settings -> In Game options there is a dropdown box for "In-Game Server browser: Max Pings/minute if you turn that down to 500, you will get servers reliably

This is interesting;I have MSI, and the killer software and have had no problems. I'm thinking I'll just leave it alone and remove it if I start having problems.

I haven't got a MSI Motherboard but the same problem. What do I do?

Maybe it helps, if you update your network driver. No matter what mb you have, it should be up to date . Newest bios etc.

MSI MB here.

I had some issues with the server browser finding 0 servers and every once in a while crashing back to the desktop. 
However, I changed the batch size of the pinged servers via Steam (Settings -> In-Game -> In game server browsers ... ) to something less. Currently I have it at 500. Takes a bit longer to list the servers, but it works w/o crashing.

Perhaps that might help.

So i am not sure if this will help. had originally had the problem no servers showing. I tried the fix above where you go into steam.

i have no servers suddenly, no manual changes to system just stopped working, may have been a small squad update, not sure. 

 

I also have no Custom server browser showing at all in the menu and the panel on the left in the menu which has tips is only showing Welcome to squad and a link to this site. 

Firing range says Unable to start session or something, error at top.

 

So far without luck:

Verified game files in steam

Tried joining via steam server browser and join game via friends list- game launches but stops at menu

Restarted PC

Restarted router

Checked firewall, lots of allowed squad entries there

Disabled Xbox stuff in win10 registry editor

Deleted content here %localappdata%/squad

Dropped steam settings>in game> pings/min to 500 and currently on 250

Waited 5 mins after clicking update server list, nothing.

 

So sad...please help

 

Deleting now to re-download.

this problem is spreading, mentions of it in steam discussions and in squad discord as well as those here.

The Inventory bug is confusing the issue, i think there are a lot of people with a different problem.
