ok i just downloaded this game 3 days a go so i downloaded the new version! ive completed basic training and got 37 out of 40 on my rifle test:deal: and i have completed my medic training but when i try to join a mission i log on to the server but soon after "loading map" comes up and i'm returned to the aa main screen!!! please help! and another thing i got 37 out of 40 on my marksman test but i can't train as a sniper!!! any suggestions for both of these problems will be much apresiated! thanx:bows:
depends wat kind of servers your trying to join, any server where you are to jump out a plane you cannot do...... such as fls farm etc. also any server with the word sf in the map name, you also cannot join. look in deployment then find missions and you tell wat each set is....
i joined an empty server without sf or plane jumping and it was fine untill somone else joined and i was just returned to the main screen again!!!
comone somone help i cant even play the game this is really frustrating!
[color=black]Have you completed all of basic training? The obstacle course and being acquainted with the SAW, 203, frags, etc.[/color]
I am having exactly the same problem since I reinstalled AA from the 2.1 full install package. I had it working just fine previously which had been upgraded over time to 2.1 using patches. The symptoms are like buggs describes: works fine on empty server. On non-empty servers, I can join and espectate and even play for a few seconds. Eventually (about 20-30 secs after joining) I get disconnected with the message Loading map. This is not an issue of training or otherwise normal game rules. It is some bug or something else that causes the disconnection. Like I said, I had 2.1 working perfectly with a Radeon 7500. I upgraded to Radeon 9800 Pro and reinstalled my whole system, downloaded the full 2.1 install for AA and here I am. All other games I have installed (BF1942, Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Black Hawk Down, and Max Payne 2) work just fine with full aliasing and best quality graphics. This is my sys configuration: P4 2.66 HT 800 FSB with 512MB Corsair PC3200 Dual Channel memory, ATI Radeon 9800 Pro 128 and assorted peripherals. Everything else works fine, like DVD playback, ITunes, etc. Additional info: I decided to keep trying to connect without restarting the game and eventually (after about 4 disconnects) the game was unable to connect to GameSpy. Could the problem be GameSpy related?
you might have been banned by PB accidentally because of something wrong it went on a banning spree. I suggest you make a new account and start over.
OK its a PB problem. Here is what worked for me. Bring up the console and type "pb_security 0". This will enable previous versions of PB to work. Apparently a lot of servers are still running previous versions of PB. Thanks, Vertical 345!
whats the "console"
Type '`' (back quote, key is left of the 1 key on most keyboards with ~ as the shift key) this will bring up a square section on the top left of your screen showing a prompt. Type pb_security to find your current setting. It should be 1. Type 'pb_security 0' to turn it off. Then hit ESC (maybe twice) to exit console.
