Hi, today I started up COD 2 MP just like normal and clicked on the join game button but nothing happened, the map didn't start to load or anything COD 2 just simply went on like i didn't click join game so instead I doubled clicked on the server name but that didn't work either. I had this problem yesterday but I just reinstalled COD 2 and it worked fine for that night. But as it's done it again I don't want to keep reinstalling COD 2 I'd really like to know how to fix it. Thanks
Maybe you have some problems with your internet connection. Make sure your firewall doesn't block your game.
Is this a new install of COD2? Did it work before, and now it doesnt?
If you are behind a router, you will need to make sure the COD2 ports are open.
For info on how to do that, either search this forum using the 'search' feature at the top of the forum, or go here:
There is a wealth of info about networking there.
Another thing you can try doing is to use All Seeing Eye (ASE), instead of using the game's Server Browser.
ASE is a server scanner, and lets you find lists of game servers, and then connect to them to play. As it is independent of the game, using it often overcomes any problems that the game's inbuilt server scanner might have.
You can download ASE for free here:
Do you see "Awaiting connection" screen? Or just nothing happens when you click on the server name?
