NOTE: ALL OF THE UNBOLDED ARE FILES OR FOLDERS
Q: Why is my Game Lobby greyed out? I can't click it
A: That is because your steam_appid.txt isn't on read only. To fix this go to where you installed Dead Island, in my case it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Dead Island find steam_appid.txt > Right Click it > Properties > tick read-only > press okay. Make sure the appid is 57940.
if you started a profile already and would like to keep the save file, what you'll have to do is go to your steam install dir. For me it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\ Then you click into userdata so for me it's C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata okay now click each folder and find the one with your previous appid. so if you changed from 13140 > 57940 and would like to keep the save files you had you find 13140 in the folders. After you click into it you should see remote\out\ Before migrating the files you need to finish to ACT 1 and save a character. After you do that then you copy the folders profiles and saves and paste it into 57940\remote\out run the game and you should be able to click Game Lobby. MAKE SURE YOU SELECT LAN AND NOT INTERNET.
Q: I can't see any games in Game Lobby
Step 1: Go to your steam install dir. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\
Step 2: Delete clientregistry.blob
Step 3: Go to your dead island install dir. C:\Program Files (x86)\Dead Island\
Step 4: Find steam_appid.txt Right Click > Properties > Untick Read-Only
Step 5: Edit steam_appid.txt and change whatever 5 digit number in there to 57940
Step 6: steam_appid.txt Right Click > Properties > tick Read-Only
Step 7: Go to Network and Sharing click change adapter settings press ALT click Advanced > Advanced Settings then change your Wireless or Local Area Connection to the TOP
Step 8: Restart your computer, boot up Tunngle join dead island channel, boot up smart steam, boot up deadisland, press ESC click Game Lobby and you're good to go!
Q: I have done all of that and I still can't see my friends game or vice versa!
A: You should be able to see other players' game on Tunngle, tell your friend to make a new character and see if you can see him or he can see you
