hi guys,

 

my problem started last night when I can''t open to any of FA servers. When i click on FA REcruiting or any other server buttons in the game, nothing happens. It just remains in the same page. I did not change any config or done anything to my laptop! it just stopped working!

 

help! :(

Heya,

Make sure you're running ET as an administrator (http://www.dark-alch...ator_privilages), and then download and run our PK3 cleaner from here: http://fearless-assa...to-pk3-cleaner/

That should solve the issue of the menu not working.

Hmmm.... what if you type /connect jay1.clan-fa.com? That should connect you to Recruiting. if not, then it looks like you've got a DNS issue. ;)

Yes there is sometimes problem while connecting through F|A  menu . Best is to know simple and easiest way to connect . Start ET , open console and type

 

For jay1:   /connect jay1.clan-fa.com

 

For jay2:  /connect jay2.clan-fa.com

Hmmm. Try opening your command prompt as an administrator, and typing "ipconfig /flushdns"

Splendid one to behold

Did anything changed on your pc lately? Like new firewall, antivirus, router or any other software\hardware. You could also download our pk3 cleaner and give it a try. Keep the re-installation of ET as a last resort. If it's not related to ET this might be useless and the problem still present.

Since it was solved for a moment, isn't there anything xern told you, you don't do anymore? Do you always run enemy territory as an administrator?

Sounds like dns-issue...what xernicus said already. I have that too now and then. Just connect with the IP address then instead of the URL. (e.g. connect jay1.clan-fa.com:27960 -> connect 8.9.4.227:27960)

That is very interesting as I have read other posts here blaming xfire-launching for messing up their ET, etc..!   :)
