Can't connect to HL since I've installed the patch and the new exe. It's giving me the 'socket error 11004 valid name, no data record of requested type' error message.
Is hyperlobby up today? Anyone else having the same problem?
Thanks.

I can connect normally, but then I renamed the il2fb.exe to il2fb_old.exe and renamed the il2fb_new.exe to il2fb.exe. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

There's a key combination that allows you to designate the start file for the game under hl.

Control-Shift and then left click on "Connect"... it's in the the "online manual" for hl.

As mentioned above, the alternative, and what I did too, is to make a backup copy of both .exe files, old and new, and then rename the new one.
