for some reason, i try to play soulstorm online, and i cant see any listed games. keep in mind that soulstorm has always worked in multiplayer, and that i made sure no mods were activated(running vanilla soulstorm).

demonhunt, tyranid, soul hurricane, and uber painter DC are the mods i have.

also, it SEEMS that if a game is updated (someone joins, ect.) it will show up, but i dont know.

Help would be appreciated,

Redrat

First, check to see if you are in the main gaming areas, not in some strange off the wall sector.

Next, did you install both patches yet? If not, here they are:

Soulstorm Patch 1.10, Dawn of War Downloads, Dawn of War Patches Soulstorm 1.1 to 1.2 hotfix, Dawn of War Downloads, Dawn of War Patches

Even with these patches, sometimes there can be problems. A not so common problem that can happen is if you are running in -dev mode. If you are not aware of ever having done this it shouldn't be a problem, but perhaps you set things up to take screenshots or something and left it in development mode. It is just a matter of removing it from the shortcut, or running directly off the disk (autorun).

The mods you list do not look like they should have affected your multiplayer compatibility, but it is possible for a mod that isn't working right or gets installed wrong to mess up your system. The next thing I would do would be to copy out your profile and recorded games (if any) and reinstall the game. When you copy your profile back in it should hold your place in the campaign and so forth. I hope something works out for you!

Yes, it was the -dev mode. Never wouldve guessed. Thanks much. Multiplayer is more fun when I can actually SEE the games:).

Whew, I'm glad it was that easy! I've fought with it for quite a while, and know others who have had days of struggles trying to get it working without loosing everything. Hope to see you online sometime! :)
