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

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 have this same problem and i know pretty much nothing about ports my game is legal
I don't have this problem. My problem is my game is legal/retail and apparently my cd key is invalid. Which is BS....
i have this same problem and dont no crap about ports please help
if you have a MOD installed it might affect online play and conectability...
MP Sucks anyway,Nothing special Bout it.If you REALLY wana play MP,Get rid of Darn vista, STALKER hates it,And so do I. :P
i had this too... i just dled the newest patch and it all got fixed (my patch and server patch didnt match before)
I still can't join! Please help. Have no mods, sp works fine and have the latest patches. Wtf am I doing wrong?
