i cant seem to get to the multiplayer part of the game at all due to it saying i dont have my connection type setup. This is what it says exactly:
You have not defined your type of internet connection. Please run the launcher, hit the setup button, and go to network tab and choose your connection type.
thats what it says in the game when i ckick the multiplayer start area.
multi error log thing says this:

now in the launcher i do have network setup(i have tryed several possibilitys that arnt my real ones) even tho it says i dont. aslo my fs2open_pxo.cfg files are the same in both data folder and mediavps/data.
the network setup that i have in the launcher is LAN/Direct connection, Dual channel ISDN, Cable Modems (i have a cable connection), under misc i have it forcing port 7808 atm because i read something that it was needed. also i have tryed without firewalls.
i am very new to the game so i will go through where i got it.
i downloaded the game from the first link on this page:http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,42854.0.html
i tryed the launcher that just says launcher not the freespace2 launcher. i got an error so i tryed the freespace2 launcher. it started up but i could not play the game, that would error. it was saying something about it wont work in a root directory or something. i tryed changing the folder, and reinstalling but that didnt work. so i moved the launcher exe to somewhere else and clicked it and it worked. but this is the one that doesnt play the game. so then i tryed the freespace2 lanucher and it worked. i moved the other launcher back. and they both worked. i adjusted settings and tryed out single player. it has worked so far but trying to go to multiplayer gives me an error in game saying i dont have a connection type setup.
now back to this multiplayer problem. i searched around the best i could and what i found was this thread:http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,43857.msg897936.html#msg897936
the first post almost has the same error message from the multi log as me, however nothing in the thread fixed my problem.
i friend pointed me to this game purely off the idea of playing together so any help would be nice. i dont know if he has the same problem or not at this time.
