if you ever wanted to know how to clear your recent server history that is how you do it:

Close Empyrion

  1. find your steam 3id here:

  2. go to the proper folder in your steam directory:

  3. go to the server browser remote history folder:

  4. delete the serverbrowser_hist.vdf file

Start Empyrion

Thanks Rex - Been searching for this for a while.

I struggled for a moment because my directory path was slightly different…


This worked for me and I was able to wipe the history. Thank you for your help!

Interesting… that didn’t work.
It was definitely the right file, I opened it and could see many server IP’s and ports. Clearly was being stored in there at one point. I did note that there were 30something servers listed.

Removed the file. Exited Steam just to be sure, started EGS and the history still shows all the same servers it did before (5 fairly recent servers).

Verfied the file is still gone from that folder.

Wonder if it’s being cached somewhere else?

Going hunting…

Others and me did it couple of times before I decided to post it, so it works for sure but maybe check your setup:

Did you got your steam3ID right?
Did you have multiple Empyrion instances (e.g. to switch fast between EXP and Public version)?
Do you have the steam cloud enabled (since this is a feature of it)?

Only one installation (currently alpha) and only one Steam3ID in the Steam\userdata folder.

verified steam cloud is checked in Steam->Settings->Cloud

The file was dated 1/18/2017 which is suspect.

Not a big deal, just curious why mine might be different.

And… I found it. 2 steams.

Thanks for the responses… worked great in the long run :slight_smile:
