Hey all I have not been able to join a multi player server ever since I installed. What happens is that when I try to join an online game it goes to the "connecting to host: 111.222.333..." or something like that. But it freezes on that screen and I have to alt-tab to get it to exit. I have tried reinstalling several times and joining different servers. On a few rare occasions I received "invalid host" message and it returned to the server list. I cannot make new servers either on lan or public although lan worked once but that was it. Any help I could get would be appreciated since I just beat SP! lol

Thanks

First, are you using a legal copy?

Do you have your firewall and ports open for the game?

My firewall has been turned off the whole time and my anti virus software (avira) is disabled. I don't know much about ports so if someone could tell me how to see if they are open that would be awesome. I'll be on AIM for awhile so if you have advice feel free to IM me at schottt1988 or just reply. Oh and my copy is legit.

I don't have this problem. My problem is my game is legal/retail and apparently my cd key is invalid. Which is BS....
