I had to format a few days ago, and ever since I reinstalled I haven't been able to connect to any server. I go to HL, I click on whatever server, one that specifically says it's running my version, the game loads up, then it waits a while and times out.
I've tried a bunch of different servers, I've tried connecting directly from in-game, I've turned off all firewalls, checked and rechecked all my network configs and ... nada...
Anyone ever experience this?
(On a related topic, ever since my format bf1942 freezes for a few seconds every so often while playing online. Used to work perfectly before the format, I reinstalled exactly the same drivers, didn't change a thing, and now it does this. Any ideas?)
