**POTENTIAL FIX FOR THOSE HOSTING DEDICATED SERVERS AND THEIR GAME CLIENT ON THE SAME MACHINE NOT SEEING ANY SERVERS AT ALL***

Seemed to have gotten past this issue of not being able to see any servers whilst my dedicated server was running on the same machine.

I needed to add my local IP to the Multihome entre in my serverstart.bat file....contents are below with password/name changes of course.

***If you use the below you WILL need to change the server path to match your own as well as the Server name and password and IP address.***

start "" /NORMAL "F:\SteamCMD\steamapps\common\Conan Exiles Dedicated Server\ConanSandbox\Binaries\Win64\ConanSandboxServer-Win64-Test.exe" "ConanSandbox?Multihome=192.168.1.10?GameServerPort=27015?GameServerQueryPort=27016?ServerName=YOURSERVERNAMEHERE?MaxPlayers=20?listen?AdminPassword=SERVERPASSWORDHERE" -nosteamclient -game -server -log

The bit in bold was the issue, that needs to be your local IP address, it was set to x.x.x.x and for some reason i could not get any servers to show up whilst it was like that.

Now, when I changed that my server did not show up although others did for a change, restarted it and it did show up along with all the others the second time.

So after altering my server batch file I have to go through the following process.

Exit Steam Client completely (to avoid DLL errors when starting server).
Run Serverstart.bat file (or your equivalent)
Once started open Steam
Run Conan Exiles, set to unoffical and ALL
filter for your server name
If you cant find the server repeat the above startup process and hopefully it will work (as it did for me).

***POTENTIAL FIX FOR BLACK SCREEN WHEN CONNECTING TO SERVER***

If you get a black screen whilst connecting try updating your Nvidia drivers, seemed to work for both a friend and I.

I'm also getting no external profilers? Does your server display in the unoffical list?

I get the "No external profilers were discovered. External profiling features will not be available" on the server but it does not affect the server showing up or anyone connecting to it and playing.
