Enabling Crossplay

To enable connectivity between the Steam versions of the game and the version offered by Epic Games directly you need to enable crossplay.

  1. Login to the Control Panel
  2. Select your server and go to Commandline Manager and create a new custom commandline

3. Customize the custom commandline however you wish and check the box titled Crossplay

** Note: You will need to specify a map name and check the box next to it. The server will not boot without a map name specified

For a complete list of map names, visit this wiki article:

Save the commandline then select it on the commandline manager page.

NOTE:  As of this writing, servers catering to Epic Games versions players cannot run with mods.
