connection failed message
hi all.  I'm having a problem connectoin to the fs2net server.  When I lauch fs2 from the fsopen launcher and go into the multi player the first thing it pops up is connecting to fs2dnet (sp?).  After about 10 seconds it says "connection failed".  I got the latest .cfg file for the multi.  I've copied and pasted the log for your help:

Re: connection failed message
What build are you running?  The "Reloading texture" messages appear nowhere in the code base for FSO, so I'm a bit curious as to what you are running.

Re: connection failed message
I'm going to go for the simple solution and ask if you have the same config file in both Freespace2\mediavps\Data and Freespace2\Data. When opened in notepad both should point to fs2netd.game-warden.com

I suspect you have a copy in Data but not the corresponding folder in mediavps. As a result the old config file in the VPs is overriding the one in your main Data folder. Adding one to mediavps\Data is the solution to this.

Re: connection failed message
See my the response to my post as it fixed my problem.  All Ihave to do now is download the updated tables so I don't get that "hacked table" message and I'm good to go.  Plus is anybody ever on to play?  I can never find a game to join and nobody ever joins my games.

Re: connection failed message
The hacked tables message is there until the official 3.6.9 Media VPs come out. You can play without the media VPs at all by choosing no mod from the launcher but then FS2 looks a lot uglier.

Re: connection failed message
You can play online, you just can't save your pilot stats and tell everyone "LOOK AT MY KILLS> I'M 1337!!!!1111"

Just fix the config files like I suggested in my first post.

-_- kills dont make one great... after all, not all skill is based on coop performance if all you play is coop then its Kill:Death Ratio as well as Kill:Mission But TvT... youll only get maybe a max of 25 kills in it with a full game if your any good. Where as in example in coop I get 30-80 kills per mission. And my record being 131 kills on Sirius Blockade I believe it was... it is a mission created back in the pxo days, and it is not easy.
