Ok I figured out what I needed to play multiplayer on pc. Now every time I try to join a game is says connection failed try again. I turned off windows firewall to see if that worked but it did not. So i have hit a wall. any help?
Do you have the latest patch?
yeah its up to date with proper patches and there are no mods.
Hmmm. Try deleting all the patches and trying. If that doesn't work, make sure your internet works.
I tried that and it says different version. I dont know what else to do.
Do the names of the games you try to join sound other country-ish? If they do then maybe the host has a different patch (Spanish, Italian, German, etc.), hence a different version. Give me a little while and I'll set up a server called Shadow's Game (or something like that). Just keep looking for it, because I want to play MP too.
Yeah they do. I will.
I Suggest you to watch your Mods, if you have any Installed, remove it. If not try to ask on http://legacy.filefront.com wich Mod is recommand. I belive it's the Comunity Mod, but i dono.
Turning off the Firewall is to risky! Since it says different Version and you can see other Games or Host, it's not the Firewall. Since a Firewall woud block the connections and not alter or affect the Game Version in anyway (at last not on Legacy).
Maybe you have downloadad any Moddification add on or what ever, chek this. Chek also that your directory is clean and you don't store there any other files.
thank you. I have checked all of this, and still to no avail. Clean install with 1.1 patch. I read something the other day about hamauchi or some name to that effect. i am trying that to see if it helps but so far no one has been online when I am. Just have to wait and see. If this does not work then I guess that I will have to wait untill gamespy gets a server goin.
