I cannot join or create games in multiplayer mode. Even though I am connected in the gamespy chatroom, when I hit 'join' or 'create', the screen freezes and nothing happens. I am still able to move my mouse cursor around but none of the buttons work and I have to crtl alt delete to get out of it. I am using Windows XP.

Make sure (if you have one) that you close off your firewall and that it is an un-modded game (unless you are playing with someone that has the same mod)

I have reinstalled, that did not change anything. I have shut off the firewall, that did not change anything either. Other suggestions? What does an 'un-modded' game mean?

Well, it works now. Not sure what I did, but thank you all for your responses.

I would still love to know what an 'un-modded' game is. :)

An Un-modded game is one that has not been MODified in any way. Like adding ships or stations or planets. You can look this stuff up anf if you like it.....leave it, I have two different mods on mine and enjoy it. The site is www.armada2files.com and they will have a slew of different mods for you to try, but don;t get yourself into a bunch with it the first time like I did....took about a week to get it right. Have fun!
