Yo,

I can't see any servers!

I installed the game yesterday and ran it but couldn't see any servers so I closed the game down. After I closed it there was a Windows Firewall message asking me if I would like to allow the game access to the internet and I clicked 'allow', I thought this may resolve my problem but the server list was still empty when I ran the game again.
I also have Peer Guardian running and have a nagging suspicion that this might be stopping me from accessing the list.

Anyone have any answers or know how to configure Peer Guardian?

Cheers,

GO.

Did you first of all make sure it says 'internet' in the server list and not 'local'?

You may try to disable Peer Guardian temporarily and run OA to see if it brings up the servers list.
You can also think about using an external server browsers if the ingame one really doesn't work. XQF for linux, no idea which one for Windows/Mac.

Guys,

Thanks for the replies but I've resolved this particular problem.

>it was set to LAN and not INTERNET!!! - yes you were right!!!<

Even though I can now see the servers when I attempt to join a server I get a 'invalid folder' message!

I'm running the latest version but I've heard there's a patch that will sort me out - am I right?

Can anyone point me to a link which will enable me to download the patch (but I don't want to have to register to another site to obtain this!)

Cheers in advance,

G_O
