    Exclamation Can't Play Growtopia Without A VPN Please Help

    I am 100% positive my IP address has not been banned. When I try to log in it says "Error Connecting". I switch to a VPN and then it works fine.

    Things I have tried
    - Reinstalling Growtopia
    - Changing my DNS
    - Resetting my ENTIRE PC (Yes, this was desperate)

    You may wonder "What is wrong with using a VPN?" The connection can be very slow or decent at times depending on the servers.

    Guys this is really bugging me can a mod or something help me!

    Also if your wondering which country I live in I live in Jamaica. Specifically the town of Kingston in Jamaica.

    Hey, Kodishim.

    You should probably email Support about this. Hopefully it’ll all work out for you.

    if you are using a free vpn you should stop using it because if someone gets banned while using the same vpn ip that you logged in with you both will get perma banned try contacting support

    This is not true and has been confirmed by @Seth

    Didn't want to admit it but I took that mini-mods suggestion and emailed support. They will probably reply soon this is just getting stupid.

    This really sounds like an issue on your network service provider. Unfortunately, this is not something we can help with. I hope you get in contact with your internet service provider about this issue and get it resolved.

    Also I e-mailed support... They told me to tell them if my firewall was blocking it (It wasn't) and they asked me for my ISP which I doubt will help since it's a Jamaican ISP but I provided them with this info anyway. Don't think they are gonna be of much help

    This could probably be a DNS issue.
    You could try this tutorial.
    Use 1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1 for CloudFlare's DNS or 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4 for Google's public DNS.

    Does it work with another device on the same network?
    If it does, try pasting this into CMD:
    ipconfig /flushdns

    If it does not, let the game timeout (by cutting the internet connection) so that it tried to connect using the alternative server

    Why are you desperate to play such a $#1tty game????
    Also, play it with a VPN. It will affect your whole internet experience, not just growtopia.
