  • Can't see player lists

    Windows firewall isn't blocking Steam or Xfire, yet for some reason they cannot get server info on who is playing etc, only how many players...

    This has been bugging me ever since I upgraded to Vista (32bit Home Premium)

    Any help would be great. Thanks.

    Re: Can't see player lists

    What program are you having this problem with? Steam or XFire?

    Is this happening in every game or just some/few?

    Try to explain step-by-step what you did/do to get this problem.

      This should explain:




      Same principle in xfire. Ingame browsers seem to manage fine, but not steam, steam overlay or xfire.

        Hmm, do you have a 3rd-party software firewall installed?

          Nope, I don't. Router's firewall hasn't got anything to do with it either. It's really puzzling, so thanks for any help :)

            Hmm, I can't find what I did to fix that since the same thing has happened to me before.

            I'd say run the Steam installer and Xfire installers again and just install over again. Maybe that'll fix the pesky problem.

            I just tried the PCS Lockdown server from Steam's servers list and not getting that issue.

              Alright, thanks for your help man! I probably won't reinstall as it's not a major problem, but thanks anyway :)

                No, no, I didn't mean reinstall Windows.

                I meant just run the Steam program installer and XFire program installers again. Both should allow you to overwrite your current Steam and XFire programs during the reinstall without you needing to reinstall any games.

                Just to be on the safe side, use File > Backup games... under Steam in case it does remove your games.

                  Yeah. I know what you meant...I don't have the patience for reinstalling it, that's all :P

                  Cheers.

                    Oh, thought I had confused you there for a second. :p

                    Well if you do get the patience to do it, just backup your games before you reinstall Steam's launcher program.

                      Probably will do eventually, hope it works.
