I think that's what happened to my 160, Windows reads it as 32, and Linux reads it as 160 sometimes.

You cannot format a volume larger than 32 gigabytes (GB) in size using the FAT32 file system during the Windows XP installation process. Windows XP can mount and support FAT32 volumes larger than 32 GB (subject to the other limits), but you cannot create a FAT32 volume larger than 32 GB by using the Format tool during Setup. If you need to format a volume that is larger than 32 GB, use the NTFS file system to format it. Another option is to start from a Microsoft Windows 98 or Microsoft Windows Millennium Edition (Me) Startup disk and use the Format tool included on the disk.

From here.

Sound familiar?

Re: Multiplayer Schedule + How To Get Started in FS2 Multiplayer - Read this fir
The build from today (02/22) is a good choice. It has the lobby enabled by default and doesn't have the most annoying bugs from 02/15, plus it also has a new fix for a pilot corruption issue. Link: http://icculus.org/~taylor/fso/willrobinson/Xt0222-win32.rar

If you want to run normal maps with that build, you will also need to download a shader pack. Those are the files starting with "sdr" on taylor's site, and to use them, just grab the latest one and drop the .vp into your mediaVPs directory, then select that as a mod. This is not needed to play multi, only to use normal maps.

I can't get into FS2Net at all with that build. Is there something special I need to do with it? The 10/28 one works fine.

This 2/22 build has a few other bugs too, like the squad images not showing up in the barracks and the movies not scaling properly to fit the screen.

10/28 will work fine as well, you just have to enable the lobby manually. If you couldn't log on, the server had probably just crashed... I spent a long time (as evidenced by earlier in this thread) pulling out my hair because none of the 3.6.10 builds would work, until taylor said the server was down :p It's up now though.

Update your video card drivers.

Download OpenAL.

If that fails:

Reinstall from your retail CDs if you have them.

Use Turey's installer over them.

Download the 2/22 build.

Put it in the root directory.

DO NOT USE 3.6.8 .VPs WITH 3.6.10 OR VICE VERSA.
