How to Fix Lags in Stardew Valley Co-op/Multiplayer Mode
Hey there, fellow farmer! Frustrated by those pesky lags, sudden teleports, or random disconnects while having a blast in Stardew Valley’s multiplayer mode? Trust me; you’re not alone. But guess what? We’ve got just the solution you’re looking for. Ready to get back to seamless farming with your pals? Let’s jump right in!
How to Set Up the Radmin VPN for Smoother Play
First things first, you’re gonna need the Radmin VPN program. It’s super easy to find – just click here or give it a quick search online. The cherry on top? No registration needed. Once you’ve got that sorted, here’s what you do:
- Fire up the Radmin VPN program and head to the “Network” button up top.
- Got two choices here:
- Creating your own world? Go to “Network” then “Create Network.”
- Joining a buddy? Hit “Network” and then “Join Network.”
- If you’re the one setting things up, jot down your IP address for pals to use. Joining instead? Get that IP from your friend and punch it in. (And hey, just to clear the air, these IP addresses aren’t your typical ones; they’re cooked up by the program itself.)
Getting Stardew Valley Multiplayer-Ready
Now that you’re all connected, let’s make sure Stardew Valley is tuned in. Follow along:
- Start up the game and make your way to the settings menu.
- Find the “Multiplayer Mode” option and give it a click.
- Set things up to your liking, with things like “Server Mode” and “Building Move Mode.”
- Hit save, and you’re golden!
Jumping into Your Friend’s Stardew World
Everything’s in place, so what’s stopping you? Dive into your friend’s world:
- Open up Stardew Valley and click on the “Coop” menu.
- Select “Join LAN Game” and type in your friend’s IP address.
- Hit “Join” and bam! You’re in.
Hold On! Facing Connection Issues?
No sweat! If you bump into any connection roadblocks, we’ve got a trick up our sleeve:
- The host (yup, that’s your friend with the world) should turn off the Windows Defender firewall. Just a quick toggle.
- Hit “WIN+R” on your keyboard, type in “firewall.cpl”, and press enter.
- Find the “Turn Windows Defender Firewall On or Off” option, and switch it off for both private and public networks.
- And just like that, those connection woes should vanish.
And there we have it! With these simple steps, Stardew Valley multiplayer lags and disconnects will be a thing of the past. So gather your buddies, farm together, and may your crops always be bountiful! Happy farming!
