Remnant 2 – How to fix Network Connection Lost
Hey there! Stuck at a multiplayer roadblock in Remnant 2? No stress; you’re in good company. Plenty of players have faced this bump, and there’s a pretty straightforward fix that could do the trick for you too. In this blog post, we’ll guide you through the maze to resolve some typical multiplayer connection glitches in Remnant 2.
Hurdle 1: Can’t hook up with sessions or spot friends
Hurdle 2: Missing Steam overlay
Hurdle 3: Launching in admin/exe creates separate save data from launching in Steam
Hurdle 4: Preorder or edition rewards missing
If any of these sound familiar, we’ve got your back. Let’s jump right into the action plan.
I once ran into an issue by launching and playing the game in Admin mode during the prerelease. When I switched off Admin mode later, my save file vanished into thin air. Turns out, if you fire up the game outside of Steam, the save file and profile save in a different folder, and they don’t sync up with Steam for the overlay, multiplayer, or DLC.
To untangle these knots, here’s your step-by-step game plan:
Step 1: Find your way to the Remnant 2 save folder
Head over to “users/(yourname)/savedgames/remnant2” on your computer. There, you’ll discover two folders: one for non-Steam saves and another for Steam saves.
Step 2: Relocate the saved files
Shift the saved files from the non-Steam folder to the Steam folder. The Steam folder’s name will be a string of numbers. By doing this, you’re putting your saves in the right spot for Steam to find them.
Step 3: Dive back into the game, glitch-free
After you’ve moved the save files, fire up the game via Steam and check if the hurdles have been cleared. You should now be able to join sessions, spot your friends, access the Steam overlay, and claim your preorder or edition rewards.
I hope these steps help you leap over the multiplayer connection issues you’ve been grappling with. I totally get how annoying it can be when you can’t fully immerse yourself in a game that’s meant for multiplayer fun. If you run into any error codes or have any more questions, feel free to ping the game’s community or support team for extra help.
Remember, tech hiccups can sneak into any game, but with some troubleshooting and patience, they can usually be sorted out. So, don’t throw in the towel just yet! Jump back into the game and start relishing the adrenaline-pumping multiplayer adventures that Remnant 2 has in store.
Keep gaming and having fun!
