Hi M8.

Assuming your game is fully patched to version 1.21 then you need to do this (thanks to Hunter82 - from his site http://www.mudmovers.com an excellent site to bookmark):

For those of you having problems connecting to UBI games after the patch, please try these steps:
In Windows (9x/ME/2K/XP)

Go to Start>Run

Type Regedit and hit enter or click OK/Open

Under HKey_Local Machine, expand it to find Software.

Under Software, expand it to find UBI Soft

Under UBI Soft, expand that to find Game Service Games

Under Game Service Games, RIGHT CLICK the folder called IL2FB _COOP and select RENAME. Rename it to IL2FB_COOPERATIVE

Select IL2FB_DFIGHT and rename it to IL2FB_DOGFIGHT

Close the registry editor.

A reboot may be required.

NOTE:
Use caution when editing the registry. While this fix is very simple, if you delete or rename the wrong things, you can crash your system. The registry is what runs windows and once you change something, there is no Undo feature for it.

As long as you follow the steps properly, you won't have any trouble. As always, neither TX Squadron nor TX-Zen is responsible if your system crashes.

EDIT:

If you have done the Reg Fix and still have no luck, check out this link. (Salute to Steve_V from UBI who pointed out his fix and added another link as well)

I think we should FAQ it in lieu of stickying it.

I think your right Mike, otherwise we'll end up with too many stickies!
