You don't have an nVidia graphics card.  You should. ;) (Note I said you can upgrade to a PIII 1.4, 768 MB, nVidia FX PCI...

It's pretty easy... lots of info online.  (plus, I can help...)  If that's what you really wanna do.  Of course, it'd probably be more cost-effective to just build your own compy from the case up.  Like I said, not that hard.  Probably take you half hour to an hour if you have decent instructions / problem solving skills.  Just make sure to put the washers on the motherboard screws!! XD

Ok well If i buy a pc off ebay, even one which isn't top of the range (out of the question anyway), i could swap my grphics card over. A lot of the stuff on ebay doesn't come with graphics cards even as powerful as mine (32mb i believe). Only problem is i don't know how to do that or what i would need for the card to work, what slots, types or whatnot.
How can i find this info out? Thanks.

Hmm, well, the latest slot type for graphics cards are PCI-E.. followed by AGP, then, the oldlest, PCI.  Are you looking to buy a new graphics card for your old computer, or a whole new system?  BTW, most graphics cards nowadays have at least 256, and possible 512 MB of on-board memory.

I've got also the message of hacked tables.

I checked my Folder for .tbm files -->
no mods running in the launcher
build 3.6.9 fully updated (this includes the mediavps as well)

But it won't stop to tell me, my tables are hacked.

Can somebody guess where the problem is? (if i remember right, the 1.2  retail patch is installed over the retail build)

Download the multi missions pack in the sticky, put it in a mod folder (like "multimissions") in your FS2 root folder and select that folder as a mod in the launcher. If your Media VPs are not in the FS2 root folder (and they shouldn't be there anyway) you won't get that error.

Or more simply, stick them in root and run with no mods :)

(The multi mission pack is one of the few add-ons I don't mind being in root as they won't screw anything up by being there. Besides they were at least partially validated by :v: so although not canon they are semi-official in a way ) :D

the problem was partially solved. Now i encountered a new one:

when theres actives Servers on http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/main.php?mod_select=none i don't see them in my serverlist. But when I set a Server myself, it ist in Game Wardens Serverlist as online.

Though, i have no clue which of these two fs2open_pxo.cfg's i should use:

fs2netd.game-warden.com
12001

OR

64.92.160.250
12000


They seem identically, but when i use the first one, i get a message for hacked tables, with the second i don't.

This far, i'm a litte bit of clueless.

Thats the point. No Firewall, no Router and Port 7808 ist open for UDP and TCP

It must have a built in router / firewall.

Actually it is a router as far as I can tell. Just one with a few fancy VOIP options too.

So now the question that has to be asked is where is it forwarding the port to? It has to be forwarding to the IP address of your PC.

My advice, Start here and look up your Fritzbox. There's probably no entry for FS2 but look at a few games and remember that you have to forward port 7808.
