I thought i posted again but it dont seem to be here, maybe it didnt submit or maybe it got deleted 😛
Well basically sometimes i can play, the last time i tried i was getting kicked every time a shot was played (i never got to see the shot) it was as if no one fired and just sat there.. Anyways im pretty sure most of my connection problems are isp related but i gotta wait 8 weeks before i can change 🙁
I thought this was going to be a Monty Python thread 🙁October 7, 2008 at 5:55 pm in reply to: Wanted to know what other games you guys play besides S3D #53727
AE never ends, it just goes on and on and on….. till you get bored.
start/control panel/network and internet connections/network connections
right click your internet connection and select properties
click on Internet protocol (TCP/IP) to highlight it (dont chage the tick in the tick box)
uncheck Obtain server address automatically
check Use the following DNS server addresses
enter the following
Preferred DNS server 18.104.22.168
Alternate DNS server 22.214.171.124
It should work now, you may have to download a little app from opendns.com but will proberbly work without it.
I have had this problem since a home hub was forced on me last year and i havent been able to play since (hence my absence) i only fixed it recently thanx to Lappy 🙂
Basically BT has a crappy DNS server, this one is much better 😉

Yeah I was gonna ask those exact same questions. Ike bent my flagpole over in MO. We did look for your servers the other day btw but figured you were glueing a toy boat together and didn’t have time for us.
I Hope you have an ‘actual’ flagpole there POM 😉October 2, 2008 at 1:38 pm in reply to: Tried to connect after a while no joy! Please help! #52350
WOW tht made a massive difference! With my original BT DNS setting it would hang on ‘connecting’ then if it ever got past that it would hang on ‘authenticating’ eventually geting the disconnect. With thesenew DNS settings ‘connecting’ and ‘authenticating’ flash by so quickly i dont even see them!! I can connect to beginners with no problem (just got on first time and played a few shots’ there is no one on main at the moment but i can connect and wait in the ‘lobby’ without gettingkicked 🙂 Ill see how it goes later when there are a few players about. If i put the old DNS back then i get the problems immediatly.
Thanks lappy and irish i think you fixed my long term conection issues! (i knew it was my stupid isp 😛 )September 30, 2008 at 8:29 pm in reply to: Tried to connect after a while no joy! Please help! #52348
LOL well i fell asleep finding out about DNS, i now know what it is, but how do i get a different one?
From the internals of my router,
Primary DNS: 126.96.36.199
Secondary DNS: 188.8.131.52
Is that any use?September 30, 2008 at 8:04 pm in reply to: Tried to connect after a while no joy! Please help! #52346
Ports forwarded is windows xp firewall and my router…… didnt make any difference at all 🙁
I just scrolled up the error window, it says failed ip security check
Whats that?? and why did i fail it 😛September 30, 2008 at 7:46 pm in reply to: Tried to connect after a while no joy! Please help! #52345
i can remember how to do it, just needed to know what ports needed forwarding 🙂 TY. (i dont think i need to goto the hasstle of a static internal ip though)September 30, 2008 at 6:49 pm in reply to: Tried to connect after a while no joy! Please help! #52343
Hey POM, hows yourself and the family? I am still here but i am unable to play due to this stupid connection thing. Im pretty sure it is down to my router (BT Home Hub) but it is supplied by my isp (BT internet) and im stuck with it (or possibly even the isp, its the same as jocks you know 😉 ), im wondering if port forwarding may help, prior to this router i did manage to make a static internal ip and port forward s3d in an attempt to run a server, but i no longer have that router anymore, any ideas what ports i need opening for s3d? Good news though, in december my contract is up and im gunna move over to cable, for the same money im paying BT for a 2mb connection i can get a fibre optic 10mb connection for the same 🙂
