Hello @Mr-Squirrel,


Please, could you attach a screenshot, just so we can verify the exact issue you are experiencing? 


As well as the above, it would be helpful if you can attach your results from the speed test found here: http://beta.speedtest.net/


For the meantime, try this solution by following the steps regarding 'flushing your DNS':

> Press Start or the Windows icon via your desktop task pane
> Search for "cmd"
> Right click the "cmd" icon and select "Run as Administrator"
> Within cmd - Type this command: "ipconfig /flushdns"  (Without any quotation " " marks)
> Wait for this to complete. 
> Relaunch MP


Note: Remember to always launch the TruckersMP launcher with administrator privileges: 

> Right click the launcher

> Properties

> Compatibility

> Tick/check the box saying 'run this program as administrator' 


It seems you have enabled the launcher through your firewall, however, please confirm with me whether or not you have made an exception through your anti-virus software as well.

Hello :)

This tends to happen when it's trying to connect (each time you load the game it'll attempt to connect) and if for whatever reason it takes so long that the connection attempt to the gameserver times out then it'll come up with the "broken" message. It's probably due to the heavy load and amount of connections that are trying to connect to the game.


Have you managed to connect at all? If you could give it a go this morning/later today and see if you're still getting that message.


Have you tried connecting in other server and still getting this error ?


And have you tried reinstalling TruckersMP launcher ?

Follow this:

  • Press the Windows Key + R (Win+R) on your keyboard
  • Enter "%programdata%" and press Enter (without the quotes)
  • Find the folder "TruckersMP" and delete that folder.
  • Navigate to C:\Program Files\ and delete the folder named "TruckersMP Launcher"
  • Go to our website and re-download and install the Launcher with admin privileges https://truckersmp.com/download/
  • Open The Launcher with admin privileges and click "Install Available Updates" 

If it still doesn't work, try these

Solution 1:

Verify the router or modem if the "UPNP" option is active, you usually find this option in the configures of your modem / router entering through the IP, for example: "".


Solution 2:

1. Run the program as an administrator (right click the shortcut and select 'run as an administrator' and accept the UAC prompt.

2. Run TruckersMP in compatibility mode for Windows 7, please follow this guide http://pearsonsupport.helpserve.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/210/21/how-to-install-or-run-a-program-in-compatibility-mode-in-windows-7

3. Install these two programs

Solution 3:

Make sure that you have steam open at the time of opening the mod and also make sure to check if there are any ETS 2 updates on steam, make sure that you download them.

You see that specific message is pertaining to the ETS 2 base game so this is an issue with the mod either not detecting that you have the latest version installed or something else is bugged.


As a last resort if none of the above solves your issue

1-) Completely re-install ETS 2, once re-installed open and choose Direct X 64 bit, then go into game and play a short job or something
2-) Exit and re-install TruckersMP again (as admin)
3-) Open TruckersMP (as an admin)
4-) See if the issue is resolved.
