How to fix Grounded Multiplayer

The most common and easiest way to fix Grounded Multiplayer issues is by typing Xbox or Xbox Networking in the search box on the bottom left of your screen. Doing so will bring up the setting tab almost immediately. When the Xbox Networking tab opens, you should see something like the image below. Basically, you will want to have this program run a check to see if there are any connection issues with the Xbox servers, as it can prevent players from joining your game on Steam.

It should do this already when you open the Xbox Networking tab, but just in case, hit check again if needed and wait for it to perform the system check. If it comes back saying that the connection is blocked, click the button that says fix it, as shown below.

This will, in turn, have Xbox Networking try to fix the error blocking the Xbox Live multiplayer servers. When the program finishes the fix, you may need to restart your pc to fix the blocked connection. This is because even after running the fix, it will still say blocked, so you will need to restart your computer to change the connection from blocked.

Additional Grounded Multiplayer fixes

  • Verify all players are on your Xbox Live friend list.
  • Invite players in the lobby.
  • Verify your privacy settings are open.
  • Check if you are appearing offline.
