--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems I cannot host or none can join th e games i host on MP. I can join every game but none joins mine.

Some firewall problem?
Is there some open issue you know about?
Did some have the same problem?

Can you give me suggestions and help me ?

Sorry m8 that I am late seeing this post.

What Firewall are you using?
I use two, the Windows Firewall that comes with XP and Zone Alarm.

The XP Firewall you have to Change windows firewall settings >'Exceptions' > allow M2TW (tick the box then click OK). This allows others to 'see' your computer. This box can be left as 'ticked', unless you want to untick it after playing. I leave it as ticked on my PC so I don't have to keep remembering to change it.

Zone Alarm you have to set the Firewall >, Internet Zone Security>'Medium' This allows other computers to 'see' your computer. Important advice just remember to set it back to 'High' after you log off M2TW.

I think that this is the only problem you get with not being able to host games. Or more correctly, you can host but others cannot see your games.

Try what I have posted and let us know if it solves your problem.

I can be online tonight 22.00hrs if you want to test it. I will open MSN each night.

You said you had changed your ISP. This should not create the problem.
Something else I thought of......have you got an Anti-Virus program with a built in firewall running? Something like Norton or McAfee? Check this if you have either. There could be a firewall with one of them.
At least we can still play with me hosting.

Good game we had last night.

Hi ^Marcus^

Have you been able to sort the problem yet?
Have you tried to see if you are able to host since you installed the v1.02 patch?
