  1. We won't ever see this again. I was a pre day 1 player, and for all its faults the original WW2OL was a brilliant game. Purely IMHO, the death of WW2OL came in a number of stages: 1. Introduction of mobile spawns .... prior to that, to get to a town you needed teamwork ... you'd pile into an opel or bedford with your teammates and get dropped off. You KNEW the players on that truck ... chances were, you played with them every night. You chatted, you laughed .... in some ways WW2OL back then was not just a game ... it was the original social network long before Facebook or Twitter was ever thought of. 2. Failure to address long standing physics issues ..... planes flying inverted faster than upright? Don't fix the physics..... just put another 'kludge' in that kills engines after a certain period of time. Planes flying faster with wings and half wings missing? Dpn't fix the physics.... just put yet another kludge in. 3. Bowing to HC pressure. Remember the Breakfast Club? I played in TZ3 and the forum screaming was deafening. So CRS decided to come up with a way to penalise sides that had large congregations of players. Congratulations ...... it worked.
  2. Buy less RAM.
  3. Bump .... not a firewall issue .... tried it with firewall on and then off ... same result. In any event, both Playgate.exe and ww2.exe are Windows Firewall exceptions.
  4. I could have sworn I mentioned that checknet was OK. Oh wait, I did. Test Starting. Test 1: Auth Pri -OK- 233ms Test 2: Main Pri -OK- 234ms Test 3: Main Alt -OK- 202ms Test 4: Main PingPri -OK- 233ms Test 5: Main PingAlt -OK- 233ms Test 6: Main Chat -OK- 231ms Test 7: Event Pri -OK- 218ms Test 8: Event Alt -OK- 203ms Connection tests completed OK.
  5. First noticed this 3 days ago, and at the time thought it might have been a by-product of the Con madness. Trying to log into game gives me an "Authentication Failed" error. I can launch the game offline no problem. I cannot get into the Training Server ... same Authentication Failed error WW2abort.log File version: 1, 23, 3, 255 Date and time: 5/30/2006 20:31:34 WWIIOL aborted via improper means WW2exit.log Exited Program: file: \ww2\Ww2ol_1.23.3.255\src\rn\rnmain.cpp, line: 466, App Version: 1, 23, 3, 255 Message string: ?Authentication failed? Date and time: 5/30/2006 20:31:34 Checknet shows a sweet connection on all 7 traces.
  6. I've been getting the same thing for the last couple of days. At first I assumed it was some weird connection problem resulting from the Con ....
  7. Heck jnmoulin, aren't you still banned for 31 million seconds or so? Why the rush to get TS up and working?
  8. Same issues here. Checknet seems fine (kinda), but attempting to log into game generates CTHL about every 10 seconds.

  9. Ok, got around the problem by downloading the full 19.2 executable of 274mb (thanks CRS) But of course now, when I try to log in, I get about half way through the loading slider then go to a white screen with "Logging in", until I CTD about a minute later. Yeah, this is MUCH better CRS
  10. Same problem here. I've tried auto-updating, downloading the update separately and installing it, re-installing the base 0001191.exe program and still no joy. I don't think I've EVER seen a program which consistently has so much trouble updating as WW2OL.
