Hi Guys,

Me and a mate just bought the game, but we can't find each other in our 'Friends' panel, nor can we find other games ? How do we add each other ?

Cheers,
Wizo

Hey! You've gotta add him as friends by going clicking on + ADD FRIEND at the bottom of your friends list, then just look up the name he gives you.

He ment on steam.

If a friend is playing on a server, you press "Friends" ingame after you pressed multiplayer, then you can see the servers your friend is playing on.

If there are no games up and none of your friends are playing you will not see anyone on the "Friends".

You will NOT see him in the game if he dont playing on any servers

I find the friend tab not always correct. My Steam friends list can show a couple of friends are playing Wreckfest, but when I start Wreckfest and go multiplayer and click friends tab, there no hosts listed, but then go Internet tab and see a few hosts and I go check these hosts out, there Royce on the gravel track. So for me, Friends tab is hit or miss.


Also about Marketplace and Research bars, some the career mode options not enable yet in current Build. Career mode still getting develop.

I think that tab only shows servers hosted by your friends.

you also see friends you met already. at least i do know.
so if you were in a lobby with friends and left the lobby, you see them online there. very buggy, that.

Hmm, will have to test that out this Saturday. But if that were true, then Friend tab not much use since few players host. Most players join.

I'll see servers who are hosting my friends in that list, but not all the time. I've assumed they were in singleplayer if I could see they were in-game but the list was empty, I suppose it is possible it's just not working consistently.

Edited to be less wrong.

Got to test that today. Two Assassins from my Steam friends list were playing Wreckfest. I fired up multiplayer and Friends tab showed Dillinja187 as host ( host not on my friends list ), I join host and fine the 2 Assassins in the lobby.



I think Friends tab show you the host your friends are in or host maybe your friend. Just seem Friend tab not always working correctly. Maybe Friend tab don't like some your Friends. Seem my friend Royce does not like showing up in Friends tab, but show in Stream Friends list he playing Wreckfest. Maybe something on Royce end blocking Wreckfest from picking him up as a friend or maybe it Royce's Steam settings?

i did see poppa was playing wreckfest, went there, no entry in friends tab. joined the gravel server, found poppa there. went out again (just wanted to contact him for gp tournament) and whoops then he's in the friends tab. so it's a wierd behaviour.
