Everything about SOF 2 is awesome and in complete working order. the only problem i have been having is while playing multiplayer. i am at school and am positive that i am behind a firewall. however, when refreshing my server list i will pings around 15 and 10. so i will enter that server, but once im in it is like the ping just shoots up in the thousands. it gets extremely glitchy and sometimes i am unable to move at all. if there is any way to dissable the firewall at all or any one has any advice it is much appreciated. thanks A.W.

The school will have a Firewall, probably the best one it can use, its there for the exact purpose you are having problems with, the firewall will only be allowed to be dissabled by an administrator, your lucky it let connect at all. So it looks like your stuck :(

yep every school has a top range firewall designed for 1 purpose to stop you downloading games and playing games on there computers... :(

so true, some administrators have even diabled the d/l of any prog not just games, instant messages and such r 1 of those progs too lol. besides the lag u get when you connect is not due to the firewall since ur able to join in, but its caused cuz of ur schools traffic. trying playing when not many ppl r online.
