I've been playing FB-AEP for a long time but generally offline. The other day I decided to try playing on line. I went to ubi.com to play there as I join a host into their game and while my computer attempted to connect to server I received a failed to connect message(reason:Timeout) I'm not familiar to playing games on line. Can anyone help? I've already downloaded the 2.04 server pack and patch, but everytime I try I get the same message. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-sad.gif P.S. I have a modem no high speed yet.

It's most likely a "scripted" server that tracks objectives and stats for each player on the server. You will need to change your "pilot" name as most scripted servers have code that disallows players with the "default" name.

In the pilot screen (before joining any server) the middle section entitled "nickname" IIRC needs to be changed to whatever you want other players to see.

try this out and see if it works.

You do not need the server patch 2.04 to play online.The server patch is only for the dedicated server software.If you have installed the server patch on your client game I would recommend uninstalling fb and reinstall with the proper patches.If you are behind a firewall make sure you let fb through.
