When you dont see any servers, you should amke sure that the filters are showing all the servers (since there are only a few servers that have people in them, around 70% of the servers are empty). I suggest that you use external server browsers like Gamespy Arcade, All-Seeing-Eye, or Q-tracker.

As for the freezing, when trying to create your own server, I beleive you need a pretty powerful machine to even start a server. As for joining servers that all ready exist, make sure your internet connection speed in the options menu is set to the right speed. (56k, 128k, Cable/DSL etc.)

Hope this helps.

try to check out those empty white boxes

did you filled anything?
evrything has to be empty.

and dont try to refresh,
just wait 1 or 2 minuts.

and if it still doesnt works,
exit game,
and try it again.

p.s.
thats why i personally think devs should make some official servers,
like there can only be maximum 20 players on A server,
each time the server reaches the maximum amount of players,
A new server opens automaticly,

im shure we get less empty servers,
and this could be done,
if TT has some really pro programmers in the team.

Thanks the server problem is half fixed now. I can see all the servers, but when I connect it stays at the waiting challenge part, starting from 1 and continously rising, sometimes it doesn't take too long though, it happens on all the servers I connect to, is this just a connection problem that I cant fix and is there a way to filter out servs that make you download maps?

Thanks in Advance

thats because your computer needs to download all the maps first,
but once its downloaded, it will load way faster the second time.
you have to be patience.

and when it starts from 1.
wait untill the number reaches 100,

than i assure you, your loading/download is finised

p.s. if your in A server playing on a map that sucks, and looks ugly,
just remember that the developers didnt made that map, those are costum maps, made by un******* people.

Quote:
i personnaly think that third party maps, should be abolished.
in my opinion only the devs should create the maps for us,
and update new maps once each 2 month.
they should get more pro mappers in the team, so we can have more and more proper working maps,
instead of sucky sucky third party maps,
many hardcore gamers, probably uninstalled TCE because they found out that TCE has some crappy crappy maps, they probably think the devs made those crappy crappy maps,

sometimes setting up a server might require you to turn of your firewall or noone will be able to get in. the system reqs need for the server, I suppose, I think you need up to 100mhz CPU power per player on the server, plus ofcourse an equally powerful GPU card to take the strain off the CPU itself. Lastly, you ram has to be way above 512, maybe 1Gb to 2Gb, I reccomend getting a pair of "512Mb DDR 400Mhz RAM" sticks (the RAM sticks come in various Mhz, ge tthe highest one you can afford)

I meet all of the system requirements, but I dont know what you mean by GPU card, if you mean a graphics card I have 128 MB AGP. Another question I have is, when it says Awaiting Challange.....1, i have to wait for that 1 to reach 100? Thanks in Advance


(Sorry for all the questions, my first time using wolfenstein enemy territory and its mods)

awaiting challenge means that the server is full and your waiting in lnie to play incase someone disconnects from the server. Im not really sure why theserver sometimes doesnt work, its best to ask SplashDamage or IdSoftware's techsupport.

Thanks for all the help, I got the game to work. The servers not working half the time was just a lag problem.
