Have had no problems with sof2 until now.

First off heres my setup. P4 @ 1.7, 512 SDR, G4 mx440, winxp home sp 1. cable internet.

My SOF2 MP is updated and everything is proper. Now while trying to play it connects to servers fine and everything seems normal till right before the game loads it stops on 'awaiting snapshot'. The game doesnt crash or nothin, its just like it cant get the snapshot. The only thing that has changed in my setup from before it was working to after it was working is my modem. My other modem quit on me and I promptly got another one from my isp. Brought it home hooked it up, still no dice. Still hangs on 'awating snapshot'. I fooled around with everthing I thought could be affecting it, even reinstalled the game twice. But still no luck. I then thought It must be the modem. So I went back and got another one. Still nothing. I read up on any info I could find about games stalling on awating snapshot, and it seems like its a memory problem. I dont think memory has anything to do with my problem. I can host and play games fine on my LAN. Im stumped.

Any help/suggestions/comments would be greatly appreciated. I havent played for almost a week now and im gettin frustrated.

I got this once or twice. All I had to do is restart the game and it was fine. Sometimes a prob when trying to connect to a busy server or a prob at your end. Have you tried connecting to diff servers or the same one each time?

I actually had the mandown mod installed the first time. But I had played many games with and without the mod running without any problems. Does punkbuster assign some kinda crazy MAC address/ip/serial relation now and having a different modems got it confused? Doesnt seem like that would be possible. I got rid of all registry relating to sof2 everything I could find before the second install. I try connecting to many servers. different gametypes, ones with/without punkbuster. But today I tried and it actually connected and got past the 'awating snapshot' but only to lag out 10 seconds into it. Ive tried reinstallin twice, cvar_reset all sorts of stuff. No idea whats goin on....

Seeing as you only get this prob on unpure servers, and pure servers force you to use the default files, i would guess that its a file you downloaded. Check your base/mp folder. It could also be a problem with a bind or setting in your sof2mp.cfg file. Did you put all your kins and sounds, etc back after you re-installed sof2?
