I have been successfully playing COD2, but recently a friend has been hosting (mp_deadyard.iwd) and when I try to connect to his server I don't get the selections for picking which team to be on. The onlt selection I can make is to spectate. This is really frustrating because other friends are playing and I can only watch. I have installed patch 1.3, everyone else has too. Any help is much appreciated. Dan
Maybe he put a restriction on the number of players who are playing on each team
No, we were on the phone trying to figure out how to get me in. At various times, other people were joining and leaving and they didn't seem to have any problems. FYI -we're both new to COD2 so we really don't have anything customized aside from things that get added to main from joining other servers. Thanks for your input. Dan
Sounds like a modded server, and you havent set auto downloads to be on to be able to receive the mod files. Some mods have new menus. If you dont have them, you can only spectate.
ha..hahah...try press 1 on your keyboard for auto assign, 2 for allies, and 3 for german, what's happening is there is a stupid little option in the config.txt that allows the server to hide the options of autoassign/join allies/join german. The clan I was in did that so people would auto assign only but it actually took out all 3.
