A lot of people are experiencing connection issues due to continous DDoS attacks. This is going on since October 6th and the only way to help that would be to change providers (which isn't a great resolution, and also would work only temporarily). All we can do right now is wait. Servers are online though and work on my end.

Thanks, Butterfly.

I wondered if it was an update that weaseled its way into my computer today that caused my problem. I'll keep checking back. Even my Fearless Assassins 'Play Online' screen would not populate earlier.

Cheers!

Hi Butter,

Same issue persists. I've tried to connect through splatterladder and gametracker websites. I get 'Awaiting connection' and it never connects. I can ping the server ips, but can't connect.

And my FearlessAssassins Play Online screen still won't populate. I can only connect to the FA servers through the link buttons on the bottom.

Oh well, just have to wait and see if I can get on some other time.

Maybe try and clean your ET folder. That FA menu may be responsible, since you said you can connect to their servers.
I would reintall ET clean. You can save etkey to preserve XP. Take out etkey from etmain, then uninstall the game and delete all the remaining files. Then install it using this installer: https://www.splashdamage.com/games/wolfenstein-enemy-territory/

Thanks, Mariposa. I'll give that a shot. I know I've had problems before and had to reinstall and then re-download maps as I play. Usually no server works at that point, but it may be that I play so much on yours that this particular folder is crammed full.

cheers,

Did an uninstall and fresh install, and still same problem. Won't get connection. I did copy the old cfg files and profiles and etkey into the new install. I can't see how that is an issue though. Not sure what to do next.

And now there are no FA server links on the dashboard either, so I can't even test those.

I can now get on to FA servers but not Butterfly servers. That is really confusing.

Try taking out the profiles and get online with a new one. Don't have to delete them, just throw them to desktop to test if new one will work. They get corrupted sometimes. I'm at work now, but when I'm back I'll do a full machine reboot. Maybe it will help.

Another reason may be that my VPS provider could temporarily block your IP range. In that case the block should be down soon (they only block ranges of IPs temporarily during massive DoS attacks, like one we're experiencing now, but they take that block off after few days). I didn't touch firewall since last obvious hacker ban, and that was good 2 or 3 months ago, so it's more likely on their side.

Great! I'll try the profile thing. I also wondered about the ET Legacy thing. I remember on one reinstall having to get the Legacy executable, but I don't remember much about that.

I think your DOS hunch may be correct. I can ping the servers, but I'm not sure if the provider block would affect the ping.

Hmm, they worked for me, but I restarted them just in case. Please tell me if they work for you now.

Very weird, but here was my 'fix.' I had to install Legacy ET, then click on the Legacy exe. It loads the start screen. Then I click on 'Legacy' on the menu. It opens the Legacy website and list of servers. I open the 'servers' menu on the right, pick 'jaymod' and search on Yardys. When I click 'Join,' it works! Any other way I've tried gives me the 'No connection' problem.

I can't explain this. I tried everything before I hit on this. The only explanation I can come up with is that the request to join is sent from the Legacy website, not my own IP address. So it's not blocked.

Good luck! I hope it works for anyone else with this perplexing problem.

Just for info, I'm now in Costa Rica and will be here for 5 months. I'm not sure I'll have the bandwidth to play online. I'll try, but if I'm MIA, it's only temporary, and I'll be back when I can.

Cheers all, and as they say here, Pura Vida!
