Just wondering if anyone else is having problems with the new version, i dlded the 1.1 patch, installed it. I had a better chance of getting a game before.... oh it doesnt crash anymore, but whenever i try to join a server its either not the right version (even when im filtering other versions)?? or the game is not avaliable anymore... also the refreh button and whole interface is crap, u press refresh and nothing changes...

it's not just you, i'm having the same issue and i've seen a fair amount of other posts indicating the same problem too. i did eventually manage to join a game but it seemed pretty random, i just kept trying different rooms and servers until finally it worked.

i had the same probelm, but when i opened the udp ports 8888 and 45001 the problem was gone, at least for me.

the fact that the majority have yet to patch their game to the same version does not require a fix..

and it's my understanding that the 'game not available anymore' was (pre-patch) when you got this message the client would crash.. now instead of crashing it merely displays that message, which in my books is a marked improvement
