Autojoin automatically re-connects you to our idle servers. This is helpful if you accidentally get disconnected from the server while being at school, at work, or sleeping in your bed.
Sometimes your game crashes, your internet is gone for a minute, or your computer freezes for a few seconds. This causes you to disconnect from the idle server, so you don’t earn points anymore. With Autojoin, this is a problem of the past. Autojoin automatically re-connects you to the server, even if your game crashed.
How to use Autojoin?
On the Servers page, you see an “Autojoin” button next to each server. Click on that button and you will be taken to the Autojoin configuration. Leave “Connect Now” checked if you use Autojoin for the first time. You can tweak the other settings to your liking or simply click “Start”.
Depending on the browser you use, a window will open that asks you how you want to open the Steam link.
Note: It’s important that you tell your browser to always open Steam links with Steam so that Autojoin can automatically re-connect you to the server.
That’s it! Autojoin is now running in your browser and it will automatically re-connect you to the server based on the interval that you chose in the configuration.
- Autojoin currently only works with Google Chrome and Firefox.
- You must leave the browser tab open.
- You must tell your browser to always open Steam links with Steam.
