I had the "?" next to my graka but after installing new drivers it was gone. However, IF I can connect as it mostly says that I can not connect to ubi.com, then it nearly allways says that its full and if it works it crashes back to windows.

It's not just your graphics card, most graphic cards get kicked back to the desktop after trying to connect to a game, the way around this is just to host a game yourself.

posted Thu March 25 2004 02:32 PM
ok since so many of u guys have this problem - when u join u get kicked to desktop i decided to post it here, i dont mind anyone reposting this in other parts of the forum but this is what i have found out:

u can only join the demo that is the same as yours... unfortunatly for some reason the game shows all demos.

First u must find which demo is urs, go to create multiplayer game and it will be listed somewhere there. eg - demo 5

then go back to the screen where lobby is listed and choose the same demo no eg demo 5.

Now u can join any game which has a slot empty without getting kicked to desktop but i still get a few errors from the transition from the load screen to the preparation screen.

have fun killing!!!

I had CTD (crash to desktop) too. Well, it will be fixed probably. I've seen other games ctd too. At least this one loads up fast. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
I am pretty content with the mp demo. Apart from some lag issues at times, it is very nice. Mercs do seem to have the advantage at careless spies (I've been shoot too many times http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif) but generally I think it's balanced, playing with both teams is ok. I also liked the way the mic works with voice sensitivity and is constantly on, so I guess even if a 3rd party voice program is used, the voice will still go from the game (so why use TS or RW, it'll lag more). I can't wait to get my hands on the full game. (April 2nd sigh...)

It seems like the release was faulty, everyone can stop panicking.

And no, Splinter cell will not run on the Geforce 440MX. Read the site for requirements.

Anyone that ran the SP demo will be fine with the MP demo.

The game filenames ".utx" etc etc arent anything to do with the xbox. They're unreal files.

Yeah well go fig... they must be sleeping right now.

Pirahna - There servers are probably overflawed so use demo users have a problem to log-in most of the time.

If we are able to log in, We have a crash (I suspect it has to do with USB Headsets and USB Webcam Microphones... %( - That is, whenever a user actually finds a room that's not full to play in and logs on, the music fades, and... Tada! the windows crash.

We all cant wait to play this most-probably excellent demo of SC2's Online Multiplayer... just pleeeease hurry up with a patch (or a different "quicker" solution...)

I am having the exact problem you are. It seems the resolution is locked at 640*480. Also it runs choppy with the graphic settings turned up without any visual improvment. I have a 2.0 GHz processor, ATI 9600 Pro, and 512 Mb of pc 2700 ram.

more evidence that this is a x-box port

anybody notice that the frames are locked on 32fps, just like an xbox game, and the textures look consol'ish
or the fact that the res is of a consol game.

personally i don't mind the fact that's its a xbox port, but i do mind the fact that the performance sucks and i cant play on the internet.

03-25-2004, 09:38 PM
This is what bothers me about companies porting from consoles to the PC. The PC offers so much better graphics, but it seems more and more, companies are going to console first, then porting.

And it shows, in the subpar graphics and in the less than intuitive controls. For example, we bought every Tomb Raider game until this last one (Angel of Death, I believe), because we read too many horrible reviews on the controls.

I've never seen the dollar figures. I take it companies make more on console games? Still, surely they can port the graphics better than this.

I have everything set to max in my settings (FSAA, AF, etc), and in the game I have 1280x1024, high (where are all the other graphics options?!?), and yet it still looks bad - jagged lines everywhere.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not flaming the game. My sons and I *loved* the first game, and want to love this one (well, actually, the boys do love the demo; I'm more the stickler on quality graphics - hence our different video cards).

I just hope they'll have suggestions to improve it. I'm sure I'll buy the game, for my sons if nothing else (well, and I'll enjoy the single play, like in the first one).

QUESTION ABOUT LAN PLAY IN THE PRODUCTION VERSION.

Hey, in the full production version, will it be possible for my sons and I to play LAN play on our three machines, with one copy of the game? All our favorites allow this (by requiring only the host in a LAN game to have the CD), but I've declined buying some games (by EA) which actually required a copy for each player.

rooj0103
03-25-2004, 10:48 PM
this is ridiculous.

no posts or news about the recent crashes EVERYONE has been getting. yes maybe 1-2 ppl out of 20 can play, but really, we all want to test it out too. ok so yes it came out for xbox, but why the choppy framrates Ubi? it feels like i'm on xbox or somehting, even though my pc will run over xbox 50 times. Ubi, if you think this is some kind of joke, then not many of us are laughing. my system specs? here's a kicker -

Alienware Area 51 pc.

HELL NO i'm not gonna waste my time telling you the specs, because you know as much as a b00n would know that alienware, even with the lowest price, is still top notch out there on the market. Ubi, if yo're going to release a "beta" version then pls say so.

i'm frustrated at the choppy framrates, because my 1280x1024 feels like a 640x400. and even when i put it on 640x400 it's still choppy. not to mention, we cant even get into a game without getting booted (CTD). i can spectate games, but i cant join. i can create a lan game, but thats pointless.

i wont deny that the single player demo was good. but if you're going to release a mpdemo online just because you want to hype us up, then i think you (UBI) need to re-evaluate what you just did. will i buy splinter cell PT? maybe. being that i loved the single player mode, i may end up getting it. but with this piss off, and the fact that you, Ubi, havent even responded to your dedicated Gamers is a slap to our faces. sure you may get new dedicated xbox players, but SP was made for the PC, and it should've stayed that way. you're just trying to make more money, and all the while laugh while we're having problems and you're swimming in your money flow. well here's another kicker, when that game comes out, expect me on KaZAA and every other P2P network. let's hear it from Ubi.

Hybrid-Halo
03-25-2004, 10:53 PM
UBI's lack of communication IS frustrating. But if it'll help put you at ease. I'm running a top spec in every aspect machine and the demo won't run at all http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

shadow i was thinking about what you said, and yeah you're right. i know its the demo so i should expect faults. i know the single player was great and i think it'll be great on the final build too. but with thier standing on the MP demo right now and with the release of SC:PT in 2 days for the pc, i dont know what to expect man. i mean, think about it, if this demo, if this demo is what they are going to base thier final multiplayer section on, then i think there's gonna be alot of angry gamers who expected so much more from Ubi that this.

YES the single player will be good, but releasing movies and screenshots of your multiplayer experience as "something out of this world", hyping it to gamers and posting reviews from other sources such as "9.1/10" or "9.3/10", we expect ALOT from it. yet it feels like you just threw it in there as somehting you (Ubi) didnt think quiet through. all i can do now is wait 48 more hours. and then i'll make my final decision on how it is. just like Hybird-halo said, maybe the final build WILL prove the critics wrong. why does this sound like male-pms or non-stop ranting and whining? if you love this game, the first SC, and the single player demo for SC:PT then you know what to expect. so much questions on this thred, yet i see NO REPLIES.

Ubi, why dont you talk? thats whats pissing us off. your LACK of commitment to what the gamers are asking for, and are asking help for. we're the ones who buy your games. we're your customers. the LEAST you CAN do is listen and reply.

i've read other threads of ppl telling other ppl to be patient and wait for a patch. ok let's ASSUME Ubi knows whats happening, that crashes and CTD's are happening be it on xbox or pc. i've checked the SC website at least a few times tonight and not ONE word or a one liner saying they've come up with some issues and are working on it. not even a "hi we know there's a problem so we're brewing coffee now and are working on it". so all we cna do, is ASSUME that they're working on it. gamers being impatient wont happen unless thier ignorance in this issue is resolved and are just trying to save-face since they wanna look good and surprise us with a patch. if i dont see a patch in a couple days, then i i wont say anything anymore. i know it wont happen. and i KNOW they've read what we've all posted. yet no comment. yes as someone said its only been out 1 day. so lets count the days...or better yet, i think they may just ignore it since its coming out in 2 days and they might just work on the game patches. so i guess this MP demo is like downloading a face slapping. thnx ubi.

Hey guys, I played this last nite - i had all the ctd's and wot not - but just pay attention to wot ppl r telling u. Try other servers and everything and u will get it to work.

I found the MP to be a little over-rated - I was not interested in playin as a Merc at all seen as i love stealth games. However i feel that the spies are a little ill-equipt to complete their mission (either that or i just suck lol).

The only major problem i had was lag - but i dont get it coz i have a 2Mb connection. No firewall or any of that bollocks! If i create a game, then its fine (obviously) - im just hoping these lag issues are resolved in some improved netcode or something for the full version.

Either way il be getting the game, if the MP flops the SP will still r0x.

Long live Sam Fisher.

so yea.
i read thru all the 8 sites of this topic, but all the stuff didn't work..

the main prob about my demo isn't the fact, i cannot play online. the prob is, the demo doesn't recognize my graphics card. its an ATI Radeon 9500. i got an AMD Athlon with 2.4 ghz and 512 mb ram and all that stuff...so i kinda meet the Min Requirements...

now when i run that pandora_detection.exe i get that lil' "?" next to my graphics card. so ingame is software mode and looks crappy as hell and runs with about 12fps. even on the max. graphics setup it looks like crap. so could anyone plz tell me how to fix that ****? plz

Why everyone is whining about this being an XBox port is beyond me.

The origional game on PC was also an XBox port and it didn't effect how great it was, I enjoyed it through and through.

The game being locked at 30fps isn't exactly terrible news. Jedi Knight II and III are both locked at 30fps until you disable it in the console as are many games. The human eye can't even see above 30fps, and frame drops can cause major slowdown anyway.

I finally got my MP demo working and well... it's damn great.

youre wrong hybrid halo, http://amo.net/NT/02-21-01FPS.html

If this old United States Air Force study is any clue to you, we've only scratched the surface in not only knowing our FPS limits, and coming up with hardware that can match, or even approach them.

The USAF, in testing their pilots for visual response time, used a simple test to see if the pilots could distinguish small changes in light. In their experiment a picture of an aircraft was flashed on a screen in a dark room at 1/220th of a second. Pilots were consistently able to "see" the afterimage as well as identify the aircraft. This simple and specific situation not only proves the ability to percieve 1 image within 1/220 of a second, but the ability to interpret higher FPS.

To all of you having problems with the graphics card errors and have a ati radeon or similiar card heres the problem: If you are running catalyst drivers 4.2 on up thats the problem. Downgrade back to catalyst drivers 4.1 and problems should be solved. I had the same exact errors last night and as soon as i completely removed my 4.3 catalyst drivers and all the ati stuff i reinstalled the 4.1 drivers and now the game runs perfectly fine. I hope this helps some of you out. I cant run no higher than 800*600 reso. but oh well at least its working now i won't complain.

whene i search for a game or try to join one manually i either get a message that says the game is full or that the game session no longer exists.

i am able to creat a lan game and a internet game.

whene i creat a internet game a few people join but i dont see them playing and theye dont answer my in game messages.... weird

any ideas guys

BTW my PC meets all the games hardware requierments.

also, the patch did a great job of optimising the game a little, i can now play on high details without any slowdown, the frames r locked at 32fps but thats fine with me.

I played these demo's the last few days and I must say I'm really enjoying it. I just found out that the sticky camera's of the spies can fire a sleeppowder cloud. Very funny. And the teasers of the Mercs are helpfull as well. You stun the spies and then there paralized for a while. I love the stealth gameplay and the graphics are uber. I dont know what some people are complaining about. I just orderd the full version of the game. I think I'll make a SP MP compo on my next lan party. I would like to thank the SC PT team. And could I have a signature of Sam Fisher :P

I love this game, but I hate that it's so f*****g hard to join a server.

Fisrt I look how many players there is on a server. If the server not is full i'm trying to join it, but it standing "Too many players on this server" anyway.

Or it stands "The session is no longer available".

Can i in some way see what servers I can join?

And a last question: "What is 'Ping'"?

//Thomas

03-27-2004, 12:31 PM
Ping is the time between the connections with server and client. A high ping can lead to laggy servers. Low pings are great to play on.

Something to do with players.

http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gifI was talking to people on the Demo of Pandora Tommorrow and I asked them if it is only 4 players per server. And they said yes, but I have to ask u guys becuase it would be better if you were able to choose the amount of players in a server.

2 vs 2 is good but not that much action. I just like servers that are like a quarter of a Clan/Squad/Guild. So all members could get in.

It does..occasionaly..

Like I said, its more of a Beta, then a demo.

Since a Demo is more a small portion of a completed game, a Beta is a version of a finished, yet buggy game (NOT released)

at least the patch fixed the CTD's, but connecting itself is a pain, All-Seeing-Eye, GameSpy are all perfect working game networking systems...

Almost everyone has had this problem. The easiest fix is to host or create your own game in the first lobby. People seem to be able to connect to you with no problem. I suspect this has something to do with port settings blocking other servers. Just a guess...

But sometimes you just can't host a server yourself, in my case..i'm behind a firewall with router , and so i can't make one..yeah i can make on alright but nobody sees it. Anyway..fix for problems with lagging mouse :

The microphone...i disable it and the lagging's gone.

Now i'm seriously considering getting a Headset but i neeed guarantee that it won't give me those horrible lagging again.
