Did you set it for lan or internet? If internet are you online at the time? As it will give this error if you are not. You can also run this program from your sof2 folder and it will tell you if your installation is corrupted by the patch. The link is:
If you still have problems could you please try to give a few more details on your settings that you have selected. Thanks.

Are you connected to a router by any chance? If you are make sure that the ports 20110 are open. Hitch warnings are normal, but when it stops at verifying version, you are having problmes contacting the Raven server. Try to ping master.sof2.ravensoft.com or 126.96.36.199 and see if it times out. Pickup_waepon m67 doesnt have spawn function is a normal message as well as not all maps and game types have spawn points for all weapons.

If you are getting the hitch screen and you are using the runner program on internet setting then your server is up. You cannot play from that menu you need to double click on the sofmp.exe file and start up ANOTHER copy of sof and then you can play. You better have a good computer to run 2 copies of sof 2 hope that helps
