Hi, I've had ET for quite a while, and I've never had any problems with it. Here recently, though, whenever I get to the server selection screen, no servers pop up, then the screen darkens, the music skips, and the game freezes and crashes. I haven't added anything to my computer that could result in this problem, nor have I changed any settings. It just started acting goofy out of the blue. Any ideas how to fix this problem? Any help would be appreciated. EDIT: I forgot to mention it, but I have reinstalled ET and repatched it several times over but it still hasn't helped.

Ive had the same problem.. it was playing fine this morning and now it locks up when i go to server selection screen..... Maybe a problem with the main/PB server?

i am also having a very similar problem... i had a nearly all night session from Fri night until 5am Sat morning, that i had NO problems with at all. but when I tried to play last night, every time i get to the server selection screen, i get an error "ET.exe - Application Error" - "invalid instruction at 0x025f22147 referenced at 0x40ef1600... memory could not be read". i changed absolutely nothing on my machine, installed nothing, removed nothing and have even rebooted several times... eaach time i get to the server selection screen and a few servers appear and this error keeps poping up in seconds. i have even tried disabling unnecessary services running without success

i am quite technical, but very stumped on this one... nothing different, but 18 hours later, ET just no longer works. >: j

Ok, I also encountered all the problems described today. This has never happened to me before. I re-installed ET a couple of times which did not solve the issue. I even obtained the latest drivers from NVIDIA, after which it seemed to work fine for awhile and then...BAM, it crashed again. I wonder if its a server problem because my list of servers is really short when I am able to see them.This is one of those things that makes you go hmmmmmmmmmmm??:confused:

Exact same problem here. I'm glad others have the same problem because it's driving me freakin' nuts! I was almost ready to reinstall XP!!

Could it be a server installed MOD? I played with ETPro for the first time a few days ago.

yea still happening to me... seems like a big problem. if i launch ET and close it right away then re-launch it, i can usually see a few servers, but i usually can only attach to them for a few min then the same error. i am wondering if punk buster has something to do with it as well... oh well... jonesin to throw back the allied invaders into the channel *lol* =) j
