hosting delta force:black hawk down team sabre

hey guys

having a bit of trouble hosting the above mentioned game (DF:BHD)

i can host games, and they appear on the game list, but whenever anybody tries to join a game, it just refuses to let them in, but my game still runs OK

i'm running XP SP2, on Pipex 2MB ADSL, connected via a belkin router/modem/4 port switch with one other computer attached

i use zonealarm firewall fully updated, and DF:BHD is cleared for internet access

i use anaconda for hosting, and all the necessary options are set, including over ride game port (which i assume is a standard port, or can someone tell me which port needs over riding)

any ideas?

thanks in advance

The port will be closed. You will have to open it in ZA. I had similar probs hosting Halo!

could also be the hardware firewall!

I just recently purchased J-Ops and its expansion pack. A cracking good online title that far exceeds CS in terms of scale and scope for teamplay. Although admittedly its not as 'pretty'.

Loving the whole 'dirtbikes in an FPS'.

Infact, I think I'm going to go play it now...

what has that got to do with my problem?!?!? lol

and 2neat, i'm sure about the hardware firewall, it never mentioned in the manual that i remember, but aren't they by default turned of anyway to allow ease of set up? therefore, unless i maually turned it on (which i haven't), it should still be off?

17479, is that the correct port to override?

that's what is the default in anaconda if you tick the box next to override game port

i may have solved it myself, but i can't be sure, so any other suggsetions would be great, cheers

after checking ZA, it turns out that the games server rights have been returned to the blue question mark (i'm very very certain that i allowed it), but i can't check it just yet

...I realise that my post wasn't a problem solver...

I was just letting you know that BHD's successor is amazing. Haha.

I've been using these forums for years.

But thanks. I'm flattered.
