Well... when JK2 brings up the console, that sounds right. when you start up another Jk2 (not closing the orignial console) make sure you're looking at the right game type (IE Duel, FFA, etc) as these lists are different.
Also, what's your server called? Because servers further down the 'alphabetical' list are less likely to be chosen. Sad but true. I pick mine by ping-rate but there ya go.
< also, the dedicated server
opitions on mine (and presumably most) are NO, LAN, INTERNET. >
What time zone are you on? I'm on GMT but I'm not sure what the bearing is on others. I think Central USA is -5 but I'm not sure. If you can clarify this I'd be happy to try out a server with you.
