Pick one of those two mods and change their port to 12000. That will at least prove that the problem is definitely the install itself and not some other weird problem.

Which mod are you running? Try it with no mods.

FS2 no mods gives me a "connection failed" right after trying to log on
FS2 with mediavps gives me a "connection failed some time after trying to log on

took BtrL and changed the number to 12000. I was able to log on (of course got the hacked tables and so on), so it seems like the install is buggy.
I used Shivans1.9c installer and the files and .exe s seem to be correct.

What happens if you copy the BtRL config back into your FS2 folder?

Cause judging from the first part of that I'd say that the game isn't finding either config file but when you run with the media VPs it would use the one in mv_core (which is wrong but it would take time for the game to prove that).

Hmm... change them to:

64.92.160.250
12000

(64.92.160.250 is the IP address for fs2netd.game-warden.com)

See if that changes anything.

okay, copying from BtrL didn't work, but after I changed to the IP like jr2 said, it logged in nicely. Thx  :) :nod: :yes:

I checked mv_core.vp (never checked before, I though copying a config file into mediavps/data would override) it says:

67.10.64.55
12000

is this the old ip ?

very strange. Seems like a DNS error of some sort. Are you posting from the same machine that you play on?

What happens if you open a command prompt (start > run, type cmd , press enter), and type in:
Code: [Select]
ping fs2netd.game-warden.com and press the enter key?  I don't expect the ping to work, but what does it say about the host?  Specifically, you should be getting:
Code: [Select]
Microsoft Windows XP [Version 5.1.2600]
(C) Copyright 1985-2001 Microsoft Corp.

C:\Documents and Settings\jr2>ping fs2netd.game-warden.com

Pinging fs2netd.game-warden.com [64.92.160.250] with 32 bytes of data:

Destination host unreachable.

Destination host unreachable.

Ping statistics for 64.92.160.250:
    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 0, Lost = 4 (100% loss),

C:\Documents and Settings\jr2>

If it won't return the [64.92.160.250], then there is a problem with your DNS like karajorma said.  Try typing in ipconfig /flushdns and hitting enter, then pinging again.

Forgot to mention that the config file in the VPs is pointing to the old address. That's the only reason why you need a config file in the mediavps folder. If it weren't there the game could simply use the one in the Data folder for everything.
