Since upgraded to ver. 1.41 have had several problems. Set to internet and cable. Just waiting and waiting, and it never happens. How long should it take to connect, or reconnect, to a server....10 minutes, a week, what ? 2. When I was connected, briefly, kept getting bumped by punkbuster after about a minute of play, with the following message, which I do not understand: "You have been disconnected via PunkBuster (for 0 minutes)...RESTRICTION: Unkonwn OpenGL Export: C:\Program Files\Return to Castle Wolfensteing - Game of The Year Edition\gl\openglv3.dll 43E313A786F2529B25D19096FC0CFD67 278528" Does anyone know what this means ? 3. The last time I was disconnected after about a minute of play, I got some message re. "low pings only" . Been playing for over a year, and I still do not know what a ping is. Can not find any definition of term with multiple internet seaches. Can someone explain what a ping is ?

1. 1 to 3 seconds normally. Mostly instantly.

2. Open C:\windows\system32 and find the dll file called opengl32.dll. Copy that one to the "gl" map found in the rtcw map. Remove the other 2 dll files there and see if that worked.

3. Ping is the amount of time in ms that it takes your computer to connect to the server and back. The lower the ping the better.

VK, I disconnected my Linksys wireless router, and manged to connect to the servers. I copied the gl file into the RTCW/gl directory, and renamed the other two DLL files with .dlxxx so that they would not be recognized. You used the word "map" but I took it to mean "directories". Was not even able to get to the main menu. Was kicked to a text screen headed cannot open gl. Can you recommend anything else ?

RtCW will only work with approved version of OpenGL. I think you should do a couple things. 1. Move or delete your RtCW gl directory. You should only use the OpenGL dll you get from your graphics card manufacture and that will not be installed in the Rtcw/GL directory. You don't need any of those files. 2. Browse out to your graphics card manufacturer's website and download the absolute latest drivers for your card. That should be the real fix for your problem. For more info on OpenGL see: http://www.opengl.org/applications/installing.html#3 On your 1.3 ghz AMD I was going to guess at it taking about 1 minute before you can start playing. If you had half as much memory I would say up to 3-4 minutes till you could play. I speak from experience. Oh and your router just needs to have port 27960 opened up. If you run a software firewall, open it up there too or tell it to allow free communications with WolfMP.exe

I quit playing this game because of punkbuster... same kinda thing that happens to you. I am not pinging or and cheating... but punkbuster kicks me for no apparent reason anyway. I pretty much wont buy games that have punkbuster on them anymore, I HATE that program.

Xbox games dont have anything like it :D If I can find a way to disable or hack out of punkbuster but still have it enabled (so you can actully join games) then that would fix the problem. I have heard it can be done.

If Punkbuster works without problems it is really a great program. Still even I had problems with it but could always find or think of an answer.

@rah66jr, Talking about hacking is not allowed... What you probably heard are ways to bypass features that detects all kinds of cheats and getting cvars enabled that are listed in the PB server limits and cheat cvars. I did not heard of playing with PB off on a PB enabled server. I hope it really does not exists
