I have one small problem when i try to connect server. When i enter game and go to mp lan section i see eagle utopia but it's ping is always over 200 witch prevents me to joining server. I manage to enter char selection menu but after i select char and press connect it displeys error that action is taking too long and bring me back to server selection menu. I dunno if it's just me or something else.
Certainly odd, if the server ping is high (which it has been recently) then normally it just takes longer then takes you in anyway, i'm not an expert on this but if the problem persists then I would re-install Freelancer (Don't forget to find your Account ID and write it down)
However wait to see what others say first, they may know more than I do.
The "Action taking too long" error is not uncommon when pings are exceptionally high. (At least for me ) But my experience is that waiting just a minute or two will see the connection completed.
Sephiroth, your forum member info says you are located in Croatia, as such one would normally expect you to have a solid, low ping connection to EU. If you are using a high speed ISP, I would expect your connected ping to be in the range of 50ms. I would also think that even a dial up connection would result in a connection in the < 200 ms range. (FYI: I live in Kansas, USA and my normal connection ping to EU is around 155 with an ADSL connection.)
Are multiple users connected to your IP address (more than one computer using your bandwidth while you are connected)? If not, then try shutting down any open windows or programs.
Again, as Mini-Stryke said of himself, I am no expert, but at least this offers a few more possibilities.
each time i tried to connect none of programs ware working in backgroup, and for example when i'm trying to connect to Eu it happens that error but when i try to connect to monkey universe it connects almost instantly. Don't wory i have separate fl game dirs for playing on MU and EU.
MU dosent have eny connections with EU mod as i completly unistaled FL reinstalled and made copy and name it Eagle Utopia Freelancer. and another that i called MU Freelancer. And this way have worked for me as i once use to play on 4 servers and i didn't have enyproblems.
I found way how to join EU without problem, i just load crypt load program btw crypt load program is for downloading but also akcecerate upload speed and download so with it i can play on EU. See ya ingame m8's
