I used to use the "Enter the Game" link on the front page and it always worked fine. Lately though it lets me in, but only in spectator mode, and I can't join straight from there. I must disconnect then re-enter through the game's favorites menu.

Nothing big, not exactly heart stopping, but something that, for me, was working and not isn't.

Thanks

Until it gets fixed........

Make a new shortcut on your desktop (Windoze) and paste the following link in the command line. It'll take you straight to the server (this was posted already in another thread).

I used to use it, stopped, then tried it a couple days ago, and I had to reconnect, and plus all my sounds were screwy until I restarted UT.

There that thread is, thanx Eyesore. I hunted for awhile and gave up looking. It made me realize how big the forums are starting to get.

As for Tidu! 's problems with the shortcut, I don't experience those problems and sounds system specific, so I won't bore you with a bunch of guesses as to why that happens. Sorry it doesn't work for you. I like it a lot.

Thanx again Eyesore.

i have the same problem with it joining as spectator, but i do get to keep my sound and all.
any idea's what is causing this ?
as it seams, it is not a isue from a ut patch. (since i already got this for quite a while with 3355, and la bomba is having it only since a little while.)

After reviewing the HTML code for the link, I don't see what could be wrong unless the class id got skewed somehow, but I doubt that is the problem. The href for the link is the same as what is posted above. It works for me, I use the direct link to the server every time (from an icon on my desktop) with no problems which is why I think it could be a PC specific issue.

Take note of all the stuff you have running in the background and turn as much of it off as possible. I have heard that certain firewalls can cause problems (such as ZoneAlarm) and anti-virus software can do the same.

What sound cards are you using? I had a built in on an Azus MB that was crap. It even caused problems with my video card. New MB and sound card and voila, no more problems. Without knowing your PC's, it could be just about anything.

I think it's if you click on the link when the game is full it takes you to spectator mode...

The fundamental problem is this: The first word we learn as children is NO. From that point forward society teaches women that saying no isn't polite, and society teaches men to respect those who wont take no for an answer.

both cases wrong i guesse..
because it doesnt mether how full server is.
and how much html code is involved in a shortcut on desktop wich says
" ut2004://disastrousconsequences.com/ " ?
if it methers, i always join DC through my list of favorites, but the shortcut to on my desktop goes to my own server.
