Hi,

 

since some weeks i cant join the East Coast server and Luci's anymore, always beeing beamed back to the main menue. Blondjames server sometimes causing the same poroblem but his server i can join fromtime to time. The difference seems to be that when joining Blondjames server (when it works) it displays a red thingy in the upper left side of the main menue saying downloading map,,,,, which seems to be the map downloader. Curious is, that in all of the above mentioned scenarios i already have the map installed and it seems to be overwriting already existing files with unknown.

 

No problemswith NCND and seargant heinekken destillery. Their servers are working.

 

I even reinstalled my pc with a totally fresh new operating system and the 5.80 lite patch in order to avoid overwriting country specific files...

 

Result is the same.

 

It's like if was beeing hardcoded out of the game :P

 

 

Am I the only one?

check "%localappdata%\gearbox software\nightfire\bond" and see if theres any maps folder in there

otherwise, type cl_allowdownload 0 in console and try to join the server. if it works then its a problem with the map downloader not recognizing the map name.

when being kicked to the main menu, press Escape and see if there's an error about Lost/dropped fragment. If you see that message, then the reason you're being disconnected is due to internet packet loss while on the connection screen. If you get a single dropped packet during the connection phase, it's enough to stall the whole thing

Thanks for your help :)

no console messages :(

 

I re-backuped pc from fresh installation image. The problem is still the same.

 

West Coast server unjoinable from my side and Susi's :(

 

In this case it seems to be more difficult than the usual and funnywise it's the follwing phenomena (only on WestCoastserver): The server browser show mapA,,, i enter,, being reverted to desktop,, entering serverbrowser again,, it shows mapB,, desktop,, browsing,, server showing mapC,,enter,,desktop again,, browse,, it shows next map in cycvle.

 

It cannot be the normal maprotaion, as it always changes to new map once we tried to join. Reproducable 5 times in a minute, better than any slapstick.

 

Are you sure that noone hardcoded our I.P.- adress areas out of the game ?

 

Cheers

i can't join that server (US East map rotation) either, everytime i get directed back to the main menu (its probably broken or smth). only ones that work for me are 24/7 romania, Lu's server, and NCND rules.  Also there are a few servers there meant for adverstising nightfire source, don't think you can join those either.

Hi,

thanks, that would be nice :)

I like this server and i want to play on it again :)

Oh and i found a failure in my last post... when i wrote i was beeing redirected to desktop.... I wanted to write... beeing reverted to the main menu, not to the desktop, which is a common and well known bug. mostly happening when drunken german moderators trying to translate their messages into proper english.
