I've had this game for a while, and it runs fine on my old computer no probs! I got a new much faster computer and the game itself works but when i connect to zone.com and try to start a multiplayer game, it always says "connection attempt failed" now i know the ISP is fine because i play alot of other games online, and there is no problems there! The only thought i had, was perhaps my Voodoo 5500 driver might be causing a problem...but the game still runs in one player mode!
Any help would be great!

Wow, your machine sucks http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif Anyway, I'll bet you your sweet PC that the Firewall is the problem, because I've had the same thing happen to me.
