Hi there, ive been following this project for quite some time and lurking in the forum just waiting for the day it came out.
We all know this game has its kinks and quirks that we're waiting to be patched, but in the meantime i thought this could be a thread
for temporary workarounds to various bugs.
There are multiple Threads on some if not all mentioned workarounds i have listed here, so thanks to the original posters.
However i cannot guarantee it will fix it tho.
I guess il just go right at it:
Singleplayer (SP) connection lost issue.
This usually happens if you try joining a Multiplayer game but nothing happens after clicking on selected server.
The method i use to avoid the connection lost error is to, first go back to the Main menu, click play, then host, after you have entered your own game lobby
you can just exit back to the main menu and start playing SP.
Actually i use this trick for unsuccessful join attempts aswell.
if you try joining a server but nothing happens, in my case atleast i cannot join any other server until i get an error message.
Simply go back into hosting your own game and exit, this will cancel your attempt to join, just make sure you dont click on the same server again.
Port error messages says port 2700-27050 needs to be open.
But you have allready allowed Takedown to access the internet in your windows firewall, and it reappears everytime you click refresh.
It seems to be no issue except the server browser itself thinks that since no hosts are available, then there is something with the router/firewall, but
from what ive later observed it looks like there are simply no one currently hosting a game that is in a lobby mode at the moment.
just keep going to the main menu and back into your browser repeatedly. if it still does not work the only thing left to do is exit the game and start it back up.
Oh and actually make sure you have Takedown on the allowed list, in your firewall.
This should now be disabled for everyone running the game after the patch.
The TTS voice is annoying the living daylights out of you?
It can be disabled by starting the 64-bit version of the game.
Default game folder is C:/program files(x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/Takedown/binaries/Win64. Filename: TakedownGame-Win64-Shipping.exe
this can also help with the Multiplayer connection issues.
Make sure you are running a 64-bit Operating System tho.
Check under Control Panel>System.
Hosting a MP Server but no one can join.
Propper fix brought to this thread by:
Raptor thx for the misssing ports m8
This is not a qoute, it is my own writing with missing ports added by raptor.
First, in your router, you need to enable port forwarding for your computer's IP and ports by logging into your Router as admin.
Then check your Windows firewall or 3rd party firewall to make sure the game is allowed to transmit data in and outbound aswell.
The DMZ method mentioned below should now be obsolete and not recommended.
But i have left it in just incase you have no luck with Port forwarding.
after Raptor mentioned ports i did not know (Added to the list above) was needed for hosting a TD server,
Thanks for your contribution Raptor now we dont need to use the pesky DMZ anymore.
If your Router has this option enable DMZ and add your computers IP to the DMZ list.
DMZ stands for "demilitarized zone" meaning your computer is extremly vurnerable to the internet in short terms.
So take great care doing this, even disable the DMZ function when you are not planning on hosting your own server.

Issues with weapon Loadout not saving.
Yet again no Guarantee's but my Issue was running Steam in offline mode because i had no Internet connection at that time.
I dont know if the Loadout config on the local computer is set to Read only or if the game Ignores this file and goes directly to steam's cloud service to look up you're saved Loadout data, or if it exists at all locally.
So make sure Steam is online/connected before you start up the game.
Sometimes when finished editing the Loadouts, a wild message appears, saying: all unsaved changes will be lost if you continue.
click cancel and push: Y
then simply go back to the main menu after that.
Sometimes when editing the loadouts the supressor for any weapon will not save the first time, simply go back into the loadout and add it again, should save the second time around.
remember to push Y acouple of times before going back to the main menu.
Weapon dissapears after switching between equipment.
