Hmmmm, the only two things i can tell you that may fix this is getting the 1.5 / 1.51 patches and changing your options to your correct internet ie. It may be on 56K when you really have cable, leaving the server to not connect. I am not sure if this will work but you can give it a try. Best of luck
already done that, still no luck
Have you disabled your Firewall and/or router? If this is not the problem, I would advise reinstalling COD, and then apply patch 1.4. Then try to see if you get a list of servers. If this checks out ok, then apply pacth 1.5. Check again. If you can't get a list of servers once the 1.5 patch has been applyied, then it will be your cause.
i can get servers and everything else all the info about them and its fully patched, but about 2 or 3 days when i want to join a server basically 99.8% percent of the time it just stays on awaiting gamestate :uhm:
Are you using a firewall and/or router? This is a really important question and we cant help you unless you tell us. Basically turn the firewall off - be it the Windows one, or another make. Then try to connect.
okey ive turned off windows firewall and pcillin firewall and i do belive i am on a router because i have a network and we have had alot of serious viruses.
So now forward the necessary ports on the router - Call of Duty TCP 28960 UDP 20500, 20510, 28960 United Offensive TCP 28960 UDP 20500, 20510, 20600, 20610, 28960
