Why the hell can't you play online in the uk??? There is NO uk update for the game, which you require to use the online service. This is total discrimination against britain. I say no more, but if there is a way, then please tell me
what are you talking about? Generals or Zero Hour? I can play online from the UK on both. Make sure that if it is Generals you are using you are patched up to date. other than that, it must be something effecting your machine & set up cos i know a few players from the UK who are frequently on line.....
check your settings mate. firewalls etc.... (sorry i'm not a techie fella, but i know you CAN play online from the UK so suggets you investigate why YOU cannot.
btw, welcome to gamingforums. if you need anything (forum related) just ask. :)
