Question I am having problems seeing internet games. Answer Make sure that you are connected to the internet (either through a Local Area Network, dial-up connection, etc.). You must connect to the internet before starting the game.
Make sure to select Internet as the Source in the game. 1) Connect to the internet and start the game. 2) Select the Multiplayer option from the main menu. 3) In the Multiplayer screen, click the Source text in the upper left portion of the screen until you see the word Internet. 4) Once you have selected Internet as the source, click the Get New List button just below the Source text.
If you are running firewall software on your system, such as Zone Alarm, please turn it off.
The following may or may not work but it has solved the problem for some. 1) Go to the directory where you installed the game and look for the Main folder. 2) In the Main folder rename wolfconfig_mp.cfg to wolfconfig_mpX.cfg. 3) Start the game and then quit the game. 4) Go back to the directory where you installed the game and open the Main folder again. 5) Delete the wolfconfig_mp.cfg. 6) Rename wolfconfig_mpX.cfg to wolfconfig_mp.cfg 7) Start the game and try multiplayer.
Waiting for / no response from Master Server Question I receive an error: Waiting for response from Master Server. Answer Though uncommon the Master Server is sometimes unavailable. This may be due to maintenance on the server, a network outage, or simply the routing between your machine and the server over the internet. This issue will usually resolve itself if you are patient.
Be sure that your computer is not behind a software or hardware firewall of any kind. This includes firewalls built into routers or other equipment, as well as programs like Zone Alarm, Black Ice, and the integrated firewall in Windows XP. Activision does not support the use of our games from behind a firewall. If it is not possible to disable the firewall you will need to open the ports for Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Return to Castle Wolfenstein transmits and receives network traffic on ports 27950, 27960, 27965 and 27952 using both TCP and UDP. The exact details on opening these ports is specific to your firewall. For more information check with the firewall documentation or manufacturer.
Another common cause of problems is a poorly configured router or connection sharing solution. If you are using a router, ICS, NAT or a software gateway you may have problems playing on the internet. This is because the router may not be forwarding the correct information back to your machine. It may be possible to get around this problem using port forwarding or DMZ. You can find more information on configuring shared connections for multiplayer gaming at www.practicallynetworked.com. Please be aware that like a firewall we cannot actively support using shared connections to play online.
The most common cause of problems though is usually the simplest - an overburdened network stack. By default many computers have protocols the average person doesn't use; things like VPN or NDISWAN. You may want to contact your ISP to find out exactly which protocols you can safely remove. Often times network game problems are resolved by something as simple as removing unused adapters and protocols.
Make sure you have TCP/IP bound to only your Dial-up Adapter if you are trying to connect to the internet via dial-up modem. Sometimes simply rebooting your computer or power cycling the external modem can resolve this issue.
Make sure you have the network setting set correctly in the game. 1) Start the game 2) Click on Multiplayer. 3) Ensure the right Connection Type is selected for your internet or LAN.
If you are on a dynamic IP connection try renewing your IP address. Windows 9x/ME 1) Click Start then Run. 2) At the prompt type WINIPCFG. 3) Once in the IP configuration screen, click Release All. 4) Click Renew All.
Windows NT/2000/XP 1) First launch the Command Prompt. 2) At the command line type "IPCONFIG /RENEW".
If this is the Platinum edition it must be RTCW and not ET. T.T.F.N. Chalky
