CoD and CoDUO single player works fine. but when i try and play Multiplayer; After clicking "Join Game" from the main menu, all i get is "awaiting response from master server".... and the list of servers does not display, no matter how long I wait. Can somebody please help?
It could be a few things. First of all, I checked, and I'm not getting the same problem, the list of all the servers appear without any problem. Try temporarily disabling your firewall, and then check to see if the problem persists. You should also try dissabling the Windows Firewall, as that may be blocking CoD from accessing the internet. Lastly, if all else fails just get Xfire. It's a program similar to AIM, but for games, and it also has a server "search" feature for about 30 of todays most popular games. Get it here: http://www.xfire.com/xf/index.php In many cases, it finds more servers than the server search function in CoD does.
You could also try All Seeing Eye, which is a server client like XFire. Get it free from here: http://www.download.com/The-All-Seeing-Eye/3000-2121-10197471.html As for the game itself, check to make sure you have the settings correct for your type of connection. Is it on LAN perhaps, when it should be on ISDN or DSL? If these settings are correct, it might be the notorious 1.5 patch problem as regards the Master Server port built into the game. 1.5 has a known bug in it for this. Just use the server clients we have just told you about. Or, are you using a router? If so, you need to forward the necessary ports in the router setup, so that it will allow the game to connect. These are th erequired ports to be forwarded: Call of Duty TCP 28960 UDP 20500,20510,28960 United Offensive TCP 28960 UDP 20500,20510,20600,20610,28960
thankyou both for a prompt reply. As soon as i tried it without my firewall up, it worked just fine. Thanks 4 all your help.
Hey Kronic, just be careful, don't run CoD without your firewall up! There's probably some sort of exceptions list somewhere in the program that you can add CoD to. I know that Norton Personal Firewall has such a list.
Yes, a lot of firewalls usually pop up the first time a program is used, and it asks you whether to allow the program access to the internet or not. Sometimes updating or patching your game makes you have to renable this access again.
