Hi all. Just got back from a rather aggravating "game" of JA. Ok first. I find a nice Siege server. 15/16 players, desert siege, WOOOOHOO perfect! Right? Wrong. Connect, "Server is Full", I say ok. I go back and refresh to see if there was really 16 players on the server. Refresh Server List. Nope, still 15/16. I try again, "Server is full".

Ok so there I am really frustrated. I hit get new list. Almost every Siege server is locked, empty, full, or "full". I am so mad now, so I leave JA MP for 15 minutes or so. I come back. Look up siege servers. One server 15/16. Here I am like "yeah right". I connect and it says "Awaiting gamestate" instead of "Server is full". YES! WOOOOOT!!!! It's loading....."blah blah blah loading weapons, blah blah blah loading characters....awaiting snapshot. "YES this is FINNALY THE MOMENT BABY YEAHHHHHHHH!!!!"

"Invalid Game Folder" means one of you (the server or the client, which is you) are using an illegal version of the game.

Wait a week or two and there will be more legit servers. It's annoying, but it can't really be helped until more people own the game.

i pretty sure a patch will do it to cuase those leaked ones that are causing the invalid folder should not be able to be patched

Sorry.. but I feel that this may be wrong.... at least this is not the case all the time, and definately not in my case.

I have the retail version, with the dedicated server (Internal, Aug 6) and I have friends with the retail version that cannot connect. They never had the beta and they still have the issue.

That happens when a person with the full legal version tries to join an illegal beta server or vice versa. Just hit Server Info on the server you're trying to join and if you see (internal) or Aug 5th in the version, don't join it.

When connecting to a server (after the "awaiting gamestate" command) it sometimes quits to main menu and says "invalid game folder." I presume its because the server is a warez server? Or is it something else? Is there any way to stop/ see its a warez server before connecting?

Yeah, you're trying to connect to a warez server.

If the server says "August 5, 2003" then it's definately warez.
