View Full Version : My weird fix for Multiplayer connectivity

I am running the generic Windows XP firewall.
Everytime I log into the game, a continue blocking box comes up, I check unblock... I later checked my list of exceptions for programs and "Petroglyph" is listed 3 times. One is for the game, one for some port, and one is for UPnP?

The first multiplayer connection always works. Any after that first game stay in the Forming connections screen unless I do this:

I go out of the multiplayer section of the game and reconnect to multiplayer. I have to do this each and everytime I finish a game. This works!!! Don't ask me why, but it seems that this is the only way for gamespy to recognize me...
