Strangest problem - if anyone knows what to do to fix this let us know! Game starts normally, all is fine with options and mech lab. I go into Multiplayer and hit "CONNECT" GAME FREEZE and goes back to desktop saying "This program has stopped responding, restarting program" This happens on both our machines.

Things that have changed since Wednesday:
Only thing I can think of is on TUESDAY Bun's PC wanted to update to service pack one for Windows 7. We did so and no problem.. we played Wednesday night and both our machines worked great. I then updated my Windows 7 to service pack one on my PC on Thursday. Now it seems that after these pcs rebooted something changed and took out MW4.

*WAFFLES?"

*I'm putting up the server tonight but I don't think we can get in. I will keep trying things though... hmmm..

Everyone is having this issue, MEKTEK changed something in the mekmatch server.

Mine crashes as soon as I try to connect to mekmatch...

Striker is correct, usally after 3-4 tries you can get in. Hotfix 0003a does not help this issue....

Hotfix 0003b is due to come out any day to correct this issue.

Have you tried the hotfix?

New EXE - Installing version .0030a Hot Fix
Download and run the exe file after applying the .0030 patch. Does not require the MTX Client or MTX Extract and Patch utility to use.
Mechwarrior4: Mercenaries Patch (version .0030 to .0030a Hot Fix)

ok that works for Jackolope 100%. He can see ALL servers and our own. Me however, I can only see ours. It says it is loading all the rest of the servers in lobby but it only shows our TCP server. It waits and waits but ours is the only one that appears. Good for tonight but if I want to head out to other servers...... I got a problem.. thoughts?

Check DXPort port range, if it only shows your own TCP server. DXPort tends to reset to default settings sometimes. If DXPort port range is correct and it still doesn't work, check router port forwarding or Windows firewall.

^ ok I full screened the game (was hoping hotfix fixed my problem with that) game crashed the both of us out and the server still worked fine. When I hit connect to return..... all the servers showed up! So I guess I'm good! (Full screen still doesn't work for my own server but that was wishful thinking... lol)

Game on! cool
