    Waiting for server problem

    Peer to peer hosted game. I'm the host and noone is able to connect to me. They all wait for a long time, until it eventually gives them a waiting for server message and then sends them to the main menu.
    I've done everything I can think of which includes but isn't limited to verifying files, uninstalling, clearing game data, removing anti cheat and so on.

    8GB RAM is the minimum required to play. You need double that if you want to host. This is covered in the Sticky FAQ.

    How would I allocate the ram to be able to host? I do have enough ram and I have been able to host in the past.

    You would buy more RAM to upgrade your system.

    What you could do in the past is not the same as what you can do now. Each major Alpha update has changed the minimum hardware requirements.

    No, I mean I played with friends on this version. The game one day just crashed and ever since then I cannot join or host. I have enough RAM it just randomly just stopped working.

    Is it a specific game you can't join, or can you not join any public server?
    Does a new game work?
    Does single player work?
    Is the game folder excluded from your Anti-Virus?
    How much disk space do you have available on your boot drive?
    Does the game load if EAC is disabled?

    Those permissions errors look suspicious, maybe your re-install didn't go well.
    I would try again, and would delete the game folder and the appdata/roaming/7DaysToDie folder.
    Back up your saved games before deleting the appdata/roaming/7DaysToDie folder.

    I have experienced several times where a rude crash has broken our server/game. It usually ended up being the Main.ttw file that was corrupted/broken. I backup our game files hourly so that I can roll back a region/the entire game/etc. if it happens.

    I can play everything, but I cannot join a friends game nor can they join my game. Other than that I can play on public servers and by myself. I have enough RAM to be able to play with them and I did until the crash happened and since then the problem has existed. I tried a completely fresh install twice and nothing has changed. Apparently I need more RAM, but I know I have enough. :^( i just wanna play with my friends

    Maybe the problem is with your friends computer.

    If you have system restore and it is active, try rolling back your entire system to before the crash. If it was a setting/file, this would fix it. We're obviously still missing some vital piece of info. Can you join any public server? Can you or your friend start a freshly generated RWG or Navezgane map and start a new game? If it was in your game settings, you wouldn't be able to play on another server. Everything (based upon the current info given) points to corrupt local game save files based upon what we have to go on.
