    Cannot load multiplayer games

    Hi, for some reason i cannon load any multiplayer games from battlelog. I can play the campaign but everytime i try and join a server it either gets stuck on "connecting..." or even makes it all the way to "playing!" yet the actual bf3.exe is a white screen of death that cannon be closed without opening my task manager. I played one online game but when i went to play a second no luck. I dont understand how it can work one minute and then not the next. Any help would be greatly apprectiated.

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    One place to start is manually updating punkbuster, I was having some connection issues and it seemed to help:

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    Thankyou for your responses but i have both updated punkbuster and tried 3 different browsers to no avail. I can play both campaign and Co-Op modes with no trouble but get stuck with a white screen and "connecting" when trying to join any servers. If anyone else has any suggestions or advice please feel free to pass it on. Thanx.

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    I Have the exact same problem.. Maybe it has something to do, with the nation you are from.. Are you from Denmark? Perhaps the servers are crashed in certain countries/areas...

    Turn off your firewall and antivirus and try it for a second to see if it works. Don't do it permanently, just for troubleshooting.

    What firewall and antivirus are you using?

    Make sure your ports are open.

    Okay, I looked op "ports" and can't understand the web guide. I am pretty sure, that my ports are closed, and that is the problem... I will call EA-games for support... Thank you

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    I have this a lot. What helps is closing everything down, launching your web browser FIRST, launching origin SECOND, THEN clicking on the battlefield 3 icon in origin (or just manually logging into battlelog).

    For some reason, the plugin stumbles a lot if you use the BF3 shortcut to launch the web browser into autologging in to battlelog. It works better if you've already launched the browser.

    Do you by chance have anything over clocked?

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    well I would start by shutting off your firewall and anti virus and then ending the process via the task manager. Lots of people are having problems with their router/firewall blocking ports. The computer never gets the signal from your browser to start the game because the port is blocked...

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    I haven´t called for ea support yet. I am by now sure of, that my problem is the ports.. Can anyone tell me how to open them? I tried downloading a program called "port tracker" or something, but it couldn't find any ports, because of my router IP, which is hidden from the program. Is there an easy way to open these ports?
    Would really appreciate playing bf3 online soon
    Thank you

    Re: Cannot load multiplayer games

    Try this site: http://portforward.com/

    after you select your router type a page comes up asking you to buy there easy software....just ignore that by clicking ignore add in the upper right corner.
    Next just follow the walkthrough, it worked for me in BC2 as I had issues connecting. You also may want to try putting just your computer IP into the DMZ zone on your router. I did it with my desktop because I only use it for gaming.
