Everytime I click create server in Mp. I chose my settings and click the start server icon and it gets me out of the game and does that loading stuff that it does when u go into sof2. and it stops at the end and says Sending server to....somthing. And then it never goes into my game. What do I do?

When u chose ur setings at create server...what does Deticated mean? What should I put it on? None, Lan, Internet? I have it on Internet.:confused: :confused: :confused:

When you set up your server settings, make sure you do not have dedicated sever selected. If you do your computer hosts the server only and will not allow you to play. If you unselect it, you host the server and play on it at the same time. Hope this helps.

It means exactly what it says. Dedicated server. Means that it uses your computer for nothing but hosting the game for other people. It will not let you play on it. When it minimizes it is running the server and you become the admin to that server. If you want to host it and play at the same time, you have to unselect this option. Sometimes it does take a while for somebody to join your game.

I hear ya on that, I thought I was the only one with that problem. I can run a Pure Server in which my friends can connect via my IP address but they can't ever find my server in the list of servers. I have been searching for an answer since I bought the game, the day it was released!!! I thought I was just being a dumb ass!?!?!? I still have't figured out how to run a server that people can join via the list of servers. PS>I DID BUY THE GAME AND HAVE A VALID CD KEY. So that's not the reason. Please ADVISE!!!! I need help, please

This game ROCKS:rock:

Virus, please clairify what you mean!?! You have to do what? Can you run a server that you are playing in and have it come up in the list of servers so that anyone could join? Cause that is what I am trying to do. I was told that it is not possible but I have a friend that did it yesterday. I tried setting up my computer with the same options he had but he still could not see my server online. However he can connect to me via my ip address.:confused:
