Guide to Get Multiplayer (Coop Working)

Fixing Multiplayer

I only got this game for multiplayer. I struggled for a little to get it working. People who want to get multiplayer working should read this to save yourself trouble. You must follow this entire thing to get it working – it’s super simple-ish. I will help you <3.

Multiplayer Overview

The devs have stated multiplayer is definitely in alpha state. The only game breaking thing I have found is that when you  your frames will drop to 10-15 FPS. Super easy to fix, run to an open area, save your game, and restart your game completely (that means close it silly). I say run to an open area before quitting because the first time I did this I ended up below the entire world. Thankfully you can swim out from the terrain and play normally again.

Cracks fingers to get multiplayer working follow me – only the host needs to do this!

You need to port forward. I figured all of this out in like 30 minutes but I had some general knowledge of how to do it before and I’m stubborn as hell (thanks mom!).

I know people don’t read on the internet so I will say this again – only the host needs to do this!

  1. Run command prompt (windows search “cmd”, run Command Prompt)
  2. Type “ipconfig”, hit enter
  3. Scroll down till you see the “IPv4 Address” and copy those numbers down (example: – dont close this window yet!
  4. This is your computers IP address and we will use this later, keep this window open and…
  5. Look for the entry “Default Gateway …….. ##############”
  6. You should see a bunch of letters numbers. What is important is the numbers that look like this “”
  7. This is your router’s IP address (take a deep breath… exhale… and let’s continue…).
  8. Open up your internet browser.
  9. Type your router’s IP address in the URL bar (mine is, hit enter.
  10. You will get a warning that says “THIS SITE IS NOT SAFE” ooooOoOOo spooky, not really, click the “more options” at the bottom of that warning and then click “Continue” or “Proceed”
  11. Typical username/password for a router is something like admin/admin or admin/password.
  12. Once you log in, this is where you’ll need to click around the menus to find what you are looking for. All routers are different.
  13. You may also need to set the control panel to “Advanced” so you can see “Router Settings” or “Access Control” — for me, my “Port Forwarding” was under ” Access Control”
  14. Add a new rule under “Port Forwarding” that is like so:

  • Give it some name “Omg im doing it mom – Craftopia”.
  • External Host: leave this blank.
  • Internal host: this your IPv4 address from #3.
  • Protocol: TCP.
  • External Port: 8787-8790.
  • Internal Port: 8787-8790.

And one more time we’re going to celebrate!

  • We add another rule…

Give it some name “Again? ugh…Craftopia”

  • External Host: leave this blank
  • Internal host: this your IPv4 address from #3
  • This ones different >>> Protocol: UDP <<<
  • External Port: 8787-8790
  • Internal Port: 8787-8790

  • Save / Apply / Whatever.
