CTHL Discussion Thread

91 posts in this topic

Tried the firewall type and the QAP or QAS thing, didnt work. I still CTHL and CTD alot. I normally have the netcode2 enabled and was getting a ton of disconnects. Disabled it, seemed to work for a bit, then here come the disconnects again.

Very frustrating as I enjoy flying.

Join the club. It's pretty clear fixing it is not a priority. Time to unsub for a few months and try back again later (again).

Looks like my return will be short lived unless I actually get some good support this time. Same issue as everyone else, CTD, no message and followed all the tips given. I seem to not be the only one. I even got a new PC to help with the problem and am still getting it.

I seem to be getting the same "Connection to host lost" every time I play this game, it's pissing me off. Last time it happened twice within 20 minutes, screw this game. I think this is God's way of saying "Stop wasting your time playing WW2Online if all it's going to do is cut your nuts off in the middle of a heated battle".:mad:

Try going into setting and disable your sound and see if it happens again.

Just to point out that disabling QoS on my Wireless Adaptor solved the problem for me. Generally whenever I get it now it's because my p....I mean open source software downloads are eating all my bandwidth.:cool:

I'm sure this has been beaten to death, but how exactly do I port forward routers? I've been having CTHL issues since I got the trial and converted to premium, and am looking forward to... stopping them.

I'm on a 64 bit computer. I'm not sure if that's relevant. I ran netcheck, and everything showed up fine.

The last five days ive been getting regular CTHL, my brother who lives up the road has had a few. Tried closing firewall and turning off QoS still not working. I assume its something to do with my service provider. BT :(

Just started getting a whole whack of CTHL messages every time I load up. A minute or so goes by, and I've got to restart the whole process over again. Disabled QoS and Windows Firewall, but still no results.

Ditto --- Over the past week I've gotten a half dozen or so CTHLs, & they've all been those where the game server crashes but the chat server still functions perfectly, i.e. the same kind that have come up repeatedly in the past. So what's up, what's causing these to resurface again? I had gone several months w/out any until about a month ago & they've slowly risen in frequency since then. Not a good sign -- & just in time for a new patch, woohoo!

There seems to be a pattern that has emerged: These CTHLs don't get fixed, but rather seem to just go into a hibernation, only to awaken every 1 or 2 major patches or so, beginning somewhere in the early 1.20s patches.

I'm pretty sure that the Free Trial new guy who I was helping last night & was following me right into the heat of some heavy action really appreciated my subsequent CTHL disappearing crap-out & then having my Ghostly Remains tell him that he's on his own..... Not a very good marketing ploy if you ask me, but what do I know?

Conclusion: All gameworld bugs combined are still less frustrating than any CTHL that derive from the game itself. Pls destroy this CTHL-pops-up-every-other-patch-or-so pattern once & for all...

I'd bet that most CTHLs are not caused by CRS' servers, and are completely out of their control. For example, the problems you guys are experiencing this week are probably due to the peering dispute between Sprint and Cogent.

I've just started getting these recently. I notice that EA are warping all over the place, then i'll cthl or just ctd a few mins afterwards. Sometimes i can make it back to base, but have the old riddler flag problem and get an MIA parked next to the af bunker.

Annoying.

....sigh......

No no no, reread what I posted....... Let me reiterate. Again: When I get these cthls, it's ONLY the GAME server that craps out, but yet I'm still able to chat away (i.e. on the CHAT server) on all the comm channels globally & even able to do the (frivilous) .report for it. If it's some sort of an ISP issue, then the whole game would CTHL, game server, chat server everything.

So if you see me in the game world ever type the word "TEST" over the comms (which I love when people follow that up w/ the ever-popular "ICLES" gag) then that means I've either A) just had a game server CTHL but chat still functioning, or B) the chat server "Host error, lost communication; reconnecting" "hiccup" message come up, but then correct itself. That's rare anymore but it has happened where the chat server crashes, but I'm still in the game world.

P.S. I just had a game server/NOT chat server CTHL just now, which is why I'm here now.

I've been getting lots of CTHL's the past few weeks as well. My internet service is 'fixed wireless' broadband. Things have been smooth since last February when I got my new puter. Then about the beginning of September the CTHL's have been hitting me with frustrating frequency. I have trieed alot of differnt things (see my post), but nothing helps. This seems to be CRS servers for me, too, because no other websites or downloads seem any slower than ever.

Unable to play for weeks now due to CTHLs. I am on RR connection in downtown Orlando. The same connection I have been playing on since June 2001.

Any chance this problem is being looked at for a patch?

Anytime you lose game connection and relog then get the cthl popup on the relog then next login will popup that firewall message.

Guys D/L pingplotter, there is a freeware version. Check both routes and note packet loss at the variuos hops. I'm betting you are getting a lot of loss on a few hops.

Funny thing is that my entire Internet connection dies after a WWIIOL-CTHL

No, your WWIIOL connection is simply the first victim of the outage. I would recommend you start with your ISP, "Every time I am playing a particular online game, you guys drop my connection.

When a connection fails, the game automatically (and silently) tries to reconnect 3 times before telling you that your connection was lost.

If you are not using the Netcode2 option (first page of in-game settings), then you are using ports 27015-27021 TCP (info for your ISP). If you have checked that option, then you are also using UDP.
