I didn't make it!
I finally RE-bought this game and it wont play multiplayer. It shows the mission look kinda screen after hitting the Multiplayer campaign button on the main page and now it wont proceed. Starting Directplay test host: Still attempting to connect.....90 seconds remaining. I know its not suppose to go to there but i let it go all the way to finishing and it still didnt connect. I turned off the firewall and tried again but i need help.
I have the same problem. I'm using a router (DSL Modem) and i tried everything and she still wont connect.
when I had cable I had the same problem and never figured out how to get past the connecting screen, it said I had two different IPs that didn't match and wouldn't let me pass
so what are you using now?
If you are using a router, place your PC in the DMZ or open the ports the game needs to have open. The network readme tells you which ports.
