Howdy folks,

I and my good friend are LONG time players of the Rainbow series from the Original all the way to Lockdown. Also, the Ghost Recon series all the way from the original to the Advanced Warfighter series. But here lies the dilemma that my friend and I have suffered with Rainbow Six Vegas and Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 1and 2.

I am hesitating on Vegas 2 for this reason. All the latest games above we could not connect to play together for a coop game via the internet no matter what we did. Both of us have routers but we have tried DMZ, Port addresses and even complete disconnect of the routers...still never could connect. With the Advanced Warfighter series I would start a coop game on UBI and set a password. Sometimes my buddy could see my game other times he couldn't even find the game. When he could, he would ALWAYS drop after the weapons loadput toward the start of the game. This happened in Advanced Warfigher 1 AND 2. We schlepped it off as an issue and never returned. When Rainbox Six Vegas came out we thought we would give it one more shot. SAME thing. Could never get passed the loadout screen and would disconnect before the opening cut screen. No matter what we did, nothing would work. We tried Hamachi with no success. I even called UBI tech support and they could not provide any answers other than the Ghost Recons were not Vista compatible (we both have Vista boxes). As far as why Vegas 1 didn't work, I'm at a loss. I also noticed that there was no way in Vegas 1 to connect directly to an IP. We had to form a game on UBI and look for it in the lobby and again, using this method could never get to the game start together. Whomever was joining would always get disconnected.

Bottom line is we had such a good time with the previous versions that I hate to give up. We would like to get Vegas 2 but creating another coaster is not an option of us. We get these games just for the coop gaming value. Anyone with any ideas, fixes, suggestions or in game experiences that will give us faith that Vegas 2 will work in coop over the net would be a big help. Thanks to all the help of front.

Coop is dead in vegas 2 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Can you connect to and play on other peoples games?

Have you tried disabling firewalls/antivirus?

What do you mean by this? Know one plays or can't? I am only looking to connect with my buddy to play and yes, all Firewall and Antivirus apps removed. Plus, DMZ and Port Forwarding to avoid the NAT firewall. Nothing worked in Vegas 1. Can you connect directly to an IP in Vegas 2? How do you play with a friend?

Thanks!
