HOW TO FIX: GREYED-OUT LOBBIES

  • If your lobby is greyed is due to one (or both) of the following reasons:
    • You have to play till Chapter 1
    • The size of your steam_api.dll located in game folder is 16kb (as opposed to something like over 120kb) which means you're using an update/fix that doesn't require steam to run the game and therefore you cannot play multiplayer. Use this steam_api.dll
    • The number inside steam_appid.txt file is 91310 or 57940 , you need a different number, like 65900 or 17700. Your lobby will be greyed if you use 57940! So change it.
    • Also please make sure that your game visibility is set to LAN (in game, Options->Online->Game Visibility)

HOW TO: RETRIEVE LOST SAVEGAMES

  • Move your saves to the current save folder
  • RELOADED's (SP) Save Game Path = "C:\ProgramData\Steam\RLD!\91310\"
  • Fix V1 Save Game Path = "..\Steam\userdata\<USER_ID>\17700\remote\" or "..\Steam\userdata\<USER_ID>\65900\remote\"
  • Fix V2 Save Game Path = "..\Dead Island\Save" (Current)

HOW TO FIX: POOR LOBBIES

If you have no lobbies in the lobby list or just a few, traveling to the map Last Resort can make a difference. Also make sure you have appid 17700!

You can also try this (as seen here)

  1. Go to your steam install dir. C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\.
  2. Delete clientregistry.blob.
  3. Go to your Dead Island install dir. C:\Program Files (x86)\Dead Island\.
  4. Find steam_appid.txt Right Click → Properties → Untick Read-Only.
  5. Edit steam_appid.txt and change whatever 5 digit number in there to 65900 (or 17770 if the lobby is greyed out with the previously mentioned).
  6. steam_appid.txt Right Click → Properties → tick Read-Only.
  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.
  8. Restart your computer, boot up Tunngle join Dead Island channel, boot up smartsteam or greenluma, boot up Dead Island, press ESC click Game Lobby and you’re good to go!

HOW TO: PREVENT LOST SAVEGAMES

  1. Completely uninstall Steam (WARNING: This will completely delete any savegames you already had unless your steam_api.dll is 16kb in size)
  2. Delete the Steamfolder
  3. Clean your Windows Registry with CCleaner (Using at your own Risk!)
  4. Create new account on Steam
  5. Re-Install Steam and copy Greenluma
  6. Add Dead Island to Non-Steam Games
  7. Follow the "How to Play" Tutorial

HOW TO: PREVENT GAME STUTTERING

  • If you experience stuttering while playing, set your Game Visibility to LAN or Single Player. The stuttering is due to the Internet Matchmaking system.

HOW TO: SKIP INTRO

  • Just add a parameter through Tunngle or through a shortcut, use the parameter "-nologos" (Guide)

GENERAL TIPS

  • When you have come to Chapter 1 you can press Esc and then click Game Lobby to join others. Remember that you can only join games that are on chapters that are lower than the one you are on, or games that are on the same chapter as you. Not games on higher chapters (they will not even show up in lobby).
  • In-game, you can fast travel to Arena Lobby (you need to be in at least chapter 2) and join/host games there (you cannot host or join others while you are inside one of the 4 arenas - you can only do so in Arena Lobby); OR you can walk to the door inside (fast travel to)Jungle Tunnel where there is the side quest with the lady asking you for help her husband in the flipped-over car.
  • You can check your scores(and those of other people using the same appid as you) by going to main menu (blood menu) and choosing Extras then Leaderboards, and there you can also see coop scores by clicking Next Leaderboard.
