There are two different ways to connect to a Dark and Light Gameserver.

Please Note: Dark and Light seems to have prolonged times when connecting to a brand new server.

  • Start your Steam program
  • Navigate to "View -> Servers" in the header bar
  • Click the favorites tab
  • Add your server to the favorites using the IP address and port
