Sorry in advance if this is the wrong place to post this, Have been playing Stalker SoC and really want to play multiplayer. Have everything running smoothly (on Vista) and can see the list of servers. Have patch 1.0006 which matches the ones on the servers i can see. I disabled firewalls ect. Not sure what i'm doing wrong? Can play BF2 online with no probs so not sure what's up, any help would be greatly appreciated! Cheers folks.
As long as you have the latest patch and firewalls down i dont see the problem. Stalker multiplayer is not that much to behold anyway, well in Australia atleast i cant find a server with less then 500 latency. As im sure you can imagine that makes play next to imposible.
yup, have the patch and firewalls down but thx anyway, am gonna have to get my online fix from BF2. I'm in london so can usually get good pings here must suck bieng there what with all the sun, sea, sand ect! Cheers for the reply was starting to think i was invisible!
Kais is right...
Don't know why but i reckon it's something to do with Battleye or something, who knows?
Are you using mods? I believe you need the plain vanilla "gamedata" subdirectory for MP to work. I use OL 2.2 -- but if I want to play MP I have to replace the original gamedata folder, then back again for SP.
FraggleRockyand firewalls down
If I may interject with an opinion, taking security software offline is a foolish thing to do. People shouldn't do it and they certainly shouldn't advise others to do it.
If a firewall prevents a program from getting internet access, you can easily configure the firewall to allow it. All firewalls I've ever used have had such facilities.
Granted it's easier to just close the firewall rather than go into it's control panel and change a setting so that the program is allowed to run properly, but it's also so insecure that you might as well not bother having one at all if you're not going to keep it running.
No clean, legitimate programs ever need firewalls, anti-virus and/or malware protection to be disabled in order to work. So, there's no need for anyone to ever disable them.
I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.
Do you have a firewall??
