    Go to http://portforward.com/routers.htm and read up how to port forward properly, maybe you need to setup a fixed ip address. This website has good tutorials on all this stuff... and im computer illiterate as well.

    Many need to fix a static IP, but it simply ain't that easy for most. It takes some work and time, most don't have a clue. They could have done a better job on connecting. I've never had to go through so much to host.

    It wouldnt let me host either when i first got the game. I kept getting open port blah blah blah. After I downloaded the patch, never got that message again and it seems to host fine now. and I never did open any ports.

    thats wrong! not the eidos ports are blocking! its like alltimes the gamespy ports!
    here my open routerports, maybe it will help some ppl here!
    some words are in german! dienste = services
    1.) routersettings SERVICES (look for udp/tcp)


    after this config the firewall settings of the router:
    2.leaving trafic/services


    as last step config the incomming trafic/services


    ip adresse des lan servers ... means ... your router ip!
    ANY QUESTIONS WHIT GERMAN WORDS? SEND ME AN PM

    What I meant was that I dont have to fart around with all this port
    nonsense to play any other online games like BF2,Doom3,Half life ect.
    I dont want to pay good money for a game and have to fart about with configurations- thats the PROGRAMMERS job.

    How long have you been playing PC games? I have seen games that were a total nightmare to set up. This wasn't the easiest but no where near the worse. Heck, even STEAM had major issues with alot of people when HL2 came out.

    What's really great is that there are alot of good people here like Akagi that go out of thier way to help out.

    HALF LIFE 1 & 2
    BF1942

    DARK MESSIAH
    MEDAL OF HONOUR - ALL
    FAR CRY
    FEAR - BOTH
