Reinstall FS2 from CDs. Download only the 2/22 build. NOTHING ELSE. Install OpenAL and new video card drivers. This shouldn't take long.

Download the latest video card drivers. Go to either ATi.com or NVidia.com .

If you don't know what card you have, get GPU-Z below.

Can you post your system specs?

Update: We found a bunch of bugs so far tonight, so for now we're returning to 3.6.9 for the rest of the night so anyone with problems can still get a good night's play in.

Re: Multiplayer Schedule + How To Get Started in FS2 Multiplayer - Read this fir
That's your problem, most likely. Your GPU is too old. If I am correct, 3.6.10 loses support for really old software.

Try this driver.

OK jedi, use 3.6.9.

Great game again, I hosted about an hour after CP and Shade left. Funny, I couldn't see some players at times. (Captain Custard)

Except for the lag (I relied entirely on missles) it was really good.

I've got that problem with 3.6.10 on one PC but not with any other.  It's most likely that the drivers haven't been updated in quite awhile.  No problems with 3.6.9 though.  When was the last time you defragged?  Could there be something left over in the cache directory causing problems?

ive got dirms gui to defrag fs as it works , i ask if i can empty the cache because maybe there is actually something of use in there

i say its something to do with 3.6.10/network or 3.6.10 /2/22 because everything was ok b4 hand,

 and as for drunk i wish i was

and as for the computer stuff , that is so true except for little bits of confused knowledge

Well I believe the cache directory is just temporary info.  Just try renaming the directory just in case.  Then create an empty one.
