Hi dear fellow AA gamers,
I have an question about the network connection. This is whats happening;
1 click on update and all the aviable servers show up. 2 I scroll true the servers looking for an server i can join... Well after passing al the servers who are full(90%!!!) i found some official server wich i can join.
3 On those servers there are no minimal honor rates active. No password protected or what ever what can keep me from playin on that server. I select that server...
4 The game loads in... (loading....) Then I can see from the viewpoints or players. So evething looks fine.
5 Then suddenly (mostly in the first minute) the black screen with the message connection faild comes up. Just like that. Somethimes when i am playing, sometimes when i didn't even started.
6 The ping is good. And then the weird thing is after trying several servers there maybe one wich gives me no problem or not in the first hour...
Please help me out.... I have version 1.6 installed. Befor that i had less problems with it. I am behind a broadband DHCP router... But all the nessasary ports(ref> AA support) ar open (UDP and TCP) No firewall. And i only play AA on one computer.
Please can enybody help me out???

Are you running the Server from the computer your using?? Cause I know that happened to me when I did that...
He's NOT talkin about HIS server! Well, dude...try the Cleanser.exe in ur AA Folder. If problem stays...re-download AA (easy on broadband)! If same problem...contact ISP OR AASTAFF! :D
I take what n0e says way too seriously

LOL Azz, Givin out good advice on cleanser now, huh?
Yep! :D Wonder where i got that idea from! ;)
I give it a trie i am at work now... To bad i cant play here... :)
OK! NP! :D When ya get home! :D
Well the tip over the cleanser.exe was sort of helpfull for one day. I have to tell you that i didn't found the cleanser.exe tool but only the clean.exe tool...
I started it up and the message reinstall systemfiles appeart... Wel that wasn't so bad either, i though...
And it helped... until yesterday (not the beatles..) Yesterday NOTING worked... All servers where full and if i founded an emptey one the connection was lost right after a (few) minutes...
The time that i was online i asked the question at other gamers online... And guess what... A LOT of people had the same problem... some call it CRASHES(suddenly be "trown" out of a server\game) other complined over establising(damn word for a Netherlander...) the network connection...And complains over the full servers... (I think AA is working on that???)
I guess there is a weird problem(virus, hacker maybe) with connection to the network...
And i thought what difference does it make if i download AA again...? I have it and also the patches... And it worked very well... I dont like solutions like reinstalling... (just the same anwser as; by a new car the old one doesnt work enymore... ;)
BUT if it is the only way i will reinstall AA(big mouth little AA heart(not a purple)... Because i love to play AA but yesterday i was to mad that the game didnt work.... Or all the servers where full....
So please is this only my problem or is there something els not right... eiter way;
PLEASE give me a solution.....
i've had the same problem sence 1.6. within 2 minutes i get dumped so u are not alone. if u get it fixed emain me and tell me what u found out [firstname.lastname@example.org]
Thanks for sharing youre problem with us all!
This could be a little signal to the AA techteam.... But i have to tell you that mine 2 last game sessions went fine, just like that??? Thats weird isn't? I guess if it had something to do with my connection or game nothing would work... Like before the 2 last game sessions...
So more and more i belive it is an (huge)connection problem(or server overload) that comes with 1.6..... And because i could play the last 2 times again i would think they are working on it... Or was it me just being lucky....Well we will see...
