Hello, Shaun!

Sorry to hear you're experiencing this issue. You say since you started playing, is this recently? I ask because there is an upcoming fix due which is addressing some server joining issues and this may help you unless this has been going on for quite some time. I would suggest retesting in the hotfix and letting us know :)

In the meantime, I know you have done some of these things but I would suggest doing anything else you have missed and seeing if this helps.

  • Verify your game files in Steam

  • Right click on Space Engineers in Steam Library → Properties → Local Files → Verify Integrity of Game Files

/bfSnH0rGoN-NgctSWBJN3LfvWZvgnfye9BrPgucxV0n8TDpNc-7yZYwSifdRXyl1quu20KGUNmHzSf6VGRbhWS4a_EYn2MclxJSOz6eVarmz-fhTWVaofVOAVZN_l_leF9dgQ5GF

  • Delete SpaceEngineers.cfg file

  • It means your game configuration will be deleted
  • You can access your SpaceEngineers.cfg by typing %appdata% into your Windows search bar and you will be redirected to the hidden Roaming folder. After that just follow: \Roaming\SpaceEngineers.

  • Delete ShaderCache folder

  • Back up your whole Space Engineers Roaming folder and delete it
  • Restart Steam
  • Reinstall the game
  • Make sure your operating system is fully updated

Hello, Shaun!

Thank you for updating us. I can see you have already provided a log. Would it be possible to check how many servers are in your favourites list? There is a known issue that could cause a similar result if you had quite a few in there. Please let me know if this could be a problem.

Kind Regards

Hello, Shane!

In your log there are quite a few servers filtered. Could you please reset the filters and see if this enables you to join as expected.

Hello, Shane!

Thank you for this. After looking at this, can you please (although you already said you did) delete your SpaceEngineers.cfg file one more time and send us a new log after this?

Kind Regards

Hello Laura,


It has been over a month and I'm still waiting to figure out what the hell is going on with my game??

I am certain a month is plenty of time to respond back to me lol.

Hello, Shane!

After some discussion, we would like to see a video of what actually happens from your side when you try to connect to the server. Going to the join game screen, select any server, press join, and wait in the joining screen so we are able to get a better idea as the logs aren't giving us a full picture. This would be great if possible :)

Kind Regards
