Hi. I've got the merged version patched up properly but I can't join online games. I keep getting kicked from the server. Did a forum search but can't find an answer. Can somebody please direct me to a tutorial on how to fix this problem or tell me what I'm doing wrong?

You didn't give much background info on what you have already tried, here are some links to get you started.

I would only imagine that it is due to your ping.

So are you using 56 k modem or are you on cable or ASDL.

Also try to connect to a server close to you. If you are using hyperlobby, the more green bars the better. The closer the server, the smaller the ping.

Some servers will automatically boot those with high ping in order to stop lag in the game for others.

Thanks. I've got cable. I was using All Seeing Eye and couldn't connect to anybody. Switched to Hyperlobby and could join several. Now I've got to learn how to find opponents.
