|3ddd Wrote:Ok, so Tron 2.0 has matchmaking via Gamespy is built in. I must have a firewall problem then:
I can only see like 2-3 serevrs lately, the most ever saw was about 5. Also, when I try to host a game it says something like "Cannot register game on Gamespy. Either the master server is down or there is a firewall problem."
I am running Norton Internet Security 2003 and am using a Speedstream 4-port DSL router (model 2614).
I tried everything on the Gamespy support doc (http://www.gamespyarcade.com/support/firewalls.shtml)
but nothing worked. I've tried systematically disabling and enabling many combinations of options on both the software and hardware firewall (enabling ports, turning off port scanning, turning off the firewall on the router, etc, etc, etc).
Help is appreciated!
It sounds like you have a couple of problems--
1) You're only seeing a few games online, and
2) When you try to host a game, you get an error message from GameSpy.
As far as #1, can you join the games that you see?
As far as #2, unfortunately I'm not a networking expert. I strongly suggest that you contact BVI customer support (via phone or email). Include your dxdiag info in the body of the email as well as a description of your problem and info on your firewall and router.
