how to play with people??

by mojuave » Wed Aug 13, 2014 17:17

ok so I am new to this whole thing and I have tried several things to play with other people. When you go onto a server is there a certain map you need to load that people play on? is it just no one is there?

logon to trainwrecktony's server, often people around.

If no-one there at the time, play a bit, check back later, daily activity!!!

After starting minetest click Client in the menu.

Check (put a v) in the litlle grey box before "Public Serverlist". Now you will see a list of servers that are online. First number is the amount of players, second number is the maximum capacity of players on that server.

Just click the one you want to play on. Don't forget to type your/a Name and Password. Next time you play on that server, to go further you'll need that same name and password.

Here's another list of online servers: http://minetest.net/servers
Or look here for more/other info about servers: viewforum.php?f=10

Some key-commands that might help you (not all) in game:
Escape brings you to the menu
F1 (function key F1) (dis)appear the hand, inventory and the cross
F2 (un)hide the chat (what you and other players are typing)
F3 (en/dis)able fog
F5 Toggle once to see your coordinates X, Y, Z
F7 Selfie
F10 Old chattext

And finally be patient. When connecting to a server takes to long, chances are that the server is not online or your/its connection is not strong enough. Item definitions and item textures are good news, you are connected and those are getting loaded. Depending on your (and the server's) computer and internet connection this can take several minutes or more (especially when connecting the first time with a server or with a new client).
