How to setup an Archeblade server

Go to the steam installation folder.

The folder is generally at C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\ArcheBlade\Binaries\Win32
(or your Steam installation folder)

Execute “serverlauncher.exe” in the folder.

Portfoward settings

*This is important. 

Go to your internet router setting.

Set it TCP/UDP, and change the range of port to 7777 – 7780
(Archeblade uses a port #7777-7780 by default, 7777 alone is not enough!)

Fix Unable to See Your Own Server Bug

I’ve noticed that this is a current issue that took me a while to search and find. So i decided to actually make a guide about it so that in the future if anyone has this problem.. they would be able to find it easier..

Problem:
When hosting a server, even though router settings have correctly port forwarded, It does not show up on Archeblade. This is because of a problem called loopback. I’ve found this info on forums, but only as posts from Achiel.
“Some people who host their own server cannot see their own server. This is due to some routers or modems disabling Loopback as a security feature. So, when the person in question has Looopback disabled, they cannot see their own server yet other people can.”

Workaround:
1. Create server and tick the checkbox LAN (Keep note of Port)
2. Open Archeblade
3. Click “LAN” and connect to own server
4. Exit own server.
5. Close server
7. Create server and untick the checkbox LAN (Use the same Port number as before)
6. Go into “History” and favourite your server :)

Enjoy :)
