Got questions? We've got answers.
  • Cannot join Multiplayer session asset is locally Modified
    This means that one or more of the assets that an MPS route requires is locally modified. Selecting the assets in question in "Content Manager", right clicking on them and selecting "Revert to Original" should revert their status to Packaged or Builtin to allow you to enter the MPS route.

    Basically you can't have a different version of an asset to what the MPS server has.
  • Connecting to multiplayer server, please wait
    This error can mean a number of things but it is best to contact our team via DISCORD in the mps-general-chat to help determine what your issue might be.
